Works for me Wednesday

Prayer Closet

Do you have a favorite place to pray? A place that calls you to spend time with your God? This is my prayer closet; the place that, today, I will be on my knees in prayer for a dear blogging friend, Heather. Some of you may know Heather from Especially Heather--others certainly know her as one of the creators of Faith Lifts. She is Emma's Mom, and she needs our prayers.

Heather has been diagnosed with a brain tumor--glioma. For up to date information, you can follow her journey on her blog. Please visit Heather's blog and leave a comment of encouragement and prayer support. Then, please begin praying for this dear woman. Let's gather together today and storm the gates of Heaven. May God use this tumor as a witness to His faithfulness! After all, His Word is rich in blessing and promise.

Matthew 18:19 "Again I say to you that if two of you agree on Earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven."

Mark 11:24 "Therefore I say to you whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them."

Isaiah 58:8 "Thy light shall break forth as the morning, and thy health shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee: the glory of the Lord shall be thy guard."

Psalm 41: 3 "The Lord will sustain, refresh, and strengthen [Heather]on [her] bed of languishing; all [her] bed You [O LORD] will turn, change, and transform in [her] illness."

Psalm 34:19 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers [her] out of them all."

Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"

3 John 2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers."

Bring the Word of our LORD to your prayer closets today blogging friends. May His Word, His Resurrection Power, His Love, cover Heather today with a mighty force. We're asking for a miracle! Jeremiah 23:29, "Is not My word like a fire? says the LORD, And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?"......LORD, Let your Word be like a fire and destroy this tumor that threatens Heather's life....may your Word be like a hammer that breaks this tumor into pieces. We're resting on His promises: "For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us." (2 Corinthians 1:20) Amen...and Amen!

Thanks for visiting.

I love your prayer closet. Given the season of my life, I pray mostly at stoplights and in the shower. Stopping at stoplights usually means I'm driving, and if I'm driving I usually have my kids with me, so it is not likely to be peaceful at all. The thing about stoplights though, is that I'm usually guaranteed at least one, but usually many more around here! Wherever I go, I know I'm going to get a red light and I'll always be able to stop...and pray.

Praying now for Heather.

I'm already praying for Heather, bless her heart.

May God's will be done and Him be glorified.

Praying fervently for Heather and her family. So heartbreaking....

Dawn said...

I just read on her site that the dizziness wasn't from the tumor, but the tumor would not have been discovered without the tumor. God's timing is always right!

There is no prayer language more POWERFUL than the WORD of God. If Jesus Himself used it on the enemy, how much more should we.

I am standing in agreement with you on the prayer for Heather...

Yes, I do have a favorite prayer closet, but it does not look as comfy as yours. My closet is actually my car...

Thank you for stopping by today.

Blessings to you and yours.

What a nice and roomie prayer closet! Thanks for the comment on my blog! I have only been married for 12 years but this concept of serving has really come alive in us the past few. God is good! It is truly Christs example to us, I figure, if I can't get it right at home...I'll never be able to be authentic out in the world! More Lord!
