This is a time when I call all of you who have faith in your heart to pray. I have a friend named Matt who has been fighting cancer for a long time and the Lord has blessed him with many victories. It's a heart wrenching fight and I ask you all to pray for Matty now as he continues to deal with this sickness.
I just got news this morning that Matt has been sick for a few weeks now and the cancer is back. Please pray.
My pastor posted a verse that just rings true in my heart right now, so I will share it with you.
1 I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
2 My soul will boast in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
5 Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
9 Fear the LORD, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing.
10 The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
My heart is aching right now for dear Matt. Pray for him now. And pray for his parents who, I'm sure, are in deep pain right now over their precious boy. As a new mommy, my ache for Matt has changed in so many different ways. He is a courageous young man and I call on you now to pray.
