Day 20:: Patrick

patrick

This is Patrick {and his beautiful wife & their Golden's}. He is a friend of 18 years. He's been having some back pain. The doctors found a mass behind his heart in his chest cavity. Today at 2 pm EST they will biopsy the tumor for further testing. Would you please join me in praying for this young man, his wife, and their families? DaddyBoy {that's my dad} spoke with Patrick last night {who's been in the hospital for a few days} and his spirits are high... he is holding tight to the truth of James 5:16 “…Pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective."

Will you consider leaving a comment letting them know you are praying or a word of encouragement?

"Father, we pray according to Your will, asking for Your grace and mercy on behalf of Patrick and his sweet wife and family. May YOU be glorified in the process of his procedure today. We ask for a miraculous healing and white washing of this mass from his body, if You would allow for this. In advance, I praise you for Your love and comfort over Patrick and his wife and all family and friends during this time. Again, may You be glorified and may Patrick and his wife be strengthened only in You! In Jesus' powerful WE pray together! Amen!!

Such a beautiful couple.... I'll be praying them! I like to remind myself of 2 Corinthians 4:18 when I face hard times... "So we don't look at the troubles we can see right now; rather we look forward to what we have not yet seen. For the troubles we see will soon be over, but the JOYS to come will last forever." Please keep us up to date on how things go...

There aren't any words to express the pain that they must be feeling, but I am always reminded of the Lord's faithfulness (Lam 3:21-24) and of His will to work this out for His good (and our sanctification). We will lift him (and others who are hurting)up!
