Just a little bit ago, I received a message from @harkrider asking me if I could post a prayer request for him here at CB as he out and about at the moment.
A friend of his has a daughter named Skylar. She has a brain tumor called (DIPG) and she needs our prayers.
She enjoys postcards and letters from around the world so her dad has been sending out requests for postcards. Now, here at CB we cannot post addresses but I do have an idea of how people could "send" a message to Skyler if they wish in addition to their prayers.
When I had my ruptured brain aneurysm, Kirk M (@blessings2you) posted a prayer request blog. In addition to prayers, people left comments on there for me. Although it was nearly two weeks before I could read them, I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to read those comments and prayers.
So, I thought that if people wanted to do so, they could post a prayer for Skyler as a comment to this blog and include a message if they wish. It would be fun for her to know where the message is being sent from so I'd like to encourage people to include their state or country in the message. You don't have to of course, but I think it would be nice.
Harkrider can then pass on the info to Skyler's dad so that Skyler can see the prayers and comments we have left for her.
Father-God, I ask that you touch and heal Skyler. I pray that you help her to feel your loving arms around her. In Jesus' name, amen.
A friend of mine told me about you and I am praying for you and your family. I live in Minnesota. I hear you like to get postcards. I can't put your address here but I can send you a message and a picture as well.
This is a picture of Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis. It is in the neighborhood I grew up in. When I was your age, I loved to ride my bike or walk to Minnehaha Falls. Just a short distance from the Falls, Minnehaha Creek flows into the Mississippi River. A famous poet who lived a long time ago named Henry Wadsworth Longfellow heard about Minnehaha Falls and wrote a poem called The Song of Hiawatha, even though he never got to visit the them.
Most gracious Lord, we ask you to step into the heart and life of your dear child and touch her with your tender love. Please let her know, beyond any shadow of a doubt, how much you love her and that no matter what this life may bring, you have an eternity prepared for her that far exceeds this life and its woes. We ask you Father to bring great comfort and joy to her heart as you allow her to see your love and the love of so many for her.
Always remember dear child of God, that the future is as bright as the promises of God!
Good Father in Heaven,
Mobilize all Skylar's natural bodily resources for healing. Lift up her natural defenses to fight her illness.
Guide all her organ systems with Your Spirit to work in harmony to heal.
Look upon Skylar with Your healing eyes, Your merciful face, Your loving smile.
Let her know she is Your beloved daughter. Let her know that she is under Your protection and grace.
Let Skylar be healed, cleansed and freed of her affliction.
We trust in Your mercy and goodness Lord.
We trust in Your love for Your daughter Skylar.
In the name of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ,
Father I lift Skylar up to you. You created her and you love her. You are our healer and our strength. I ask you to give peace to Skylar and her family. Give them strength and joy in this dark time. Let your blessings be upon them all.
In the name of Jesus or Lord and Savior.
Just a note to let everyone know that I will be praying for these. I saw two blogs asking for prayer, this and allansangel. Also poodlelady. All will be in my prayers. I don 't type them, but will in my prayers. Billy
I am from Oklahoma in the United States. I justed wanted you to know that I will be praying for God to walk with you through it all and for a complete, quick recovery. God Bless.
Lord, mercy upon this young lady Skyler. I pray that You minister to her and to her family. Grant peace to them in the days and weeks ahead. I pray for a miraclous healing, a special touch of the Lord so that she will be set free from this sickness, for nothing is too difficult to Jesus.
I command the brain tumour to be cursed and be dead in Jesus name and I pray that the tumour will decrease in size until it's gone, in Jesus name.
Thank You Jesus for healing and for answering this prayer in Jesus name Amen
