On most days I use this site to make it all about me this lamb and her needs, trials, you know all the ba ba drill stuff. For today this must be set aside. Maybe it’s a good thing and nice being able to take the spot light off of this one by placing it on to another except all of this needs to be said in a way in which can inspire as many prayers as possible.
After reading a new comer’s blog, don’t mean new to WordPress just new for this lamb and if I wasn’t fighting that inferiority complex before well I am now. His writings were terrific and mine…don’t think you could call this writing at all, it’s a think out loud by throwing all those marbles inside my head on to this computer screen. Since I am lacking abilities in storytelling and have no words to encourage or move people into a direction that I see fit (catch that I am still thinking me, dang it) maybe with this prayer those of you who are reading this could joyfully send out my friend’s prayer request.
The next hard part of this is, there really are a lot of people in dire need, how do you go about covering all of these needy people who are hungry cold and it may not all be as simple as that. Hungry can mean so many things outside just plain being hungry and we all know that picture all too well and some of you have experienced it in some form. You can also be hungry for knowledge or like me hungry for companionship, for that degree you’re working on or want to be working on and of course you could not even know it but be hungry for the word and that is why you haven’t found anything that satisfies you and leaves you cold and alone, or you could know someone who is without a home or enough clothes on their backs, or the pressures of life are too difficult.
So there are a lot of people who are needy all around the world and then there is one person for just one moment in that prayer you can focus on that includes my friend who has an appointment for a grape size seed tumor in her brain. It may sound small but she is dizzy and having trouble with everything that has to do with normal thinking, walking talking and forget concentration which is why on her last part of the request is that on the 19th of this month her appointment with a specialist. Her hopes there are not only to be able to get this nasty lump out of her head but that the doctor would request a temporary sick time in order that she can get back up on her feet and go back into with what she hopes is all in the Lord’s will ministry.
For me this lamb this is like an inside joke because this woman nagged me to death! She stole my thunder when ever I decorated for Halloween, or blasted my you know what which was back in the day – to become a follower of Christ and I can tell you first hand she was relentless! She took the prize in nagging me everyday for nearly oh geez eighteen years. Which proves my stubborn issues but would have to say that my friends is quite relentless don’t you think?
Well the sad part is she has felt so bad from what I hear from her son she rarely leaves her bed once she gets home from work. This woman is that picture of the energizer bunny and I wouldn’t be surprised when they came up with the idea after seeing her in action!
So here is the prayer that I have stolen – do stolen prayers still work?
I have modified it because not only would this lamb like for this woman to receive what is in the Lord’s will and me being selfish hopes that is by way of healing so she can nag a few more people into believing but as we know so many people do need to be covered in prayers.
Scary I am not good with prayers so bear in mind that even my hack job is inadequate.
Our hearts go to you O Lord with that steadfast grace and mercy we seek for comfort. I turn to you in moments of weakness for help in this time of needs as it says in your word “He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.”
Please send your healing Word to your servants Elizabeth Ramsey. In the name of Jesus, drive out all infirmity and sickness from this body.
We also turn to you Christ Jesus for strength of compassion, turn those sorrows into joy, and pain into comfort for others. May your servant trust in your goodness and hope in your faithfulness, even in the middle of this suffering. Let them be filled with patience and joy in your presence as they wait for your healing touch.
Please restore your servants to full health, dear Father. Remove all fears and doubts from their hearts by the power of your Holy Spirit and may you, Lord, be glorified through his life.
As you heal and renew your servants, Lord, may they bless and praise you. All of this I pray in the name of Jesus Christ.
Thank you very much for actually picking up this call and in the place of my friend’s name please add along those that you may know, who are in need of Jesus’s help like my neighbor she has been screaming outside all morning please put in a note for Arlene. She’s 74 mentally challenge and has been through the mill of troubles!
