Happy Thanksgiving Week! Throne of Grace is thankful for you, our faithful prayer warriors, who join us here each week. God is doing a work here beyond what we imagined and you are all an integral part of that work. We had no idea it would be such a blessing to be able to offer a place for prayer for the hurting…and it has been such a privilege to be able to lift one another up to our Savior! Lots of suffering this week! Please join us in praying for the following:
• Molly’s dad, Don, was recently diagnosed with melanoma. It appears the skin cancer was caught early. He had a 3 1/2 inch strip of skin on his arm removed on Friday and is awaiting test results to make sure the cancer was contained and has been removed. Please pray for Don’s faith to be strengthened during this time and for quick healing from the surgery. Please join us also in praying that the cancer has not spread!
• We’d appreciate prayers for a dear friend, Jennifer, who just lost her mother to colon cancer. Jennifer has lost a mother-in-law, sister, and now her mother – all to cancer within the past 2 years! Pray for the Lord to comfort Jennifer and her family as they heal from so much loss. Pray for the practical needs of the family to be met as they pay bills, prepare a service, and keep up with work and daily life. Praise the Lord that “Granny Annie” knew Jesus as her Savior and that the Lord, in His mercy, kept her from suffering long.
• Amy is asking us to lift her up to Jesus and pray in faith for complete healing! Amy has been suffering with Lyme disease for quite some time and is currently undergoing an aggressive treatment plan that leaves her bedridden many days. With three young children and a husband who serves as a pastor of a large church, being unable to handle her many responsibilities is hard on the whole family! Let’s pray with expectation knowing that Jesus is the great Healer and pray that a miraculous healing would bring Him great glory!
• Speaking of COMPLETE healing…I (Molly) would appreciate prayers for complete healing from the ailments that plague my eyes. A combination of chronic dry eye, allergies, and blepharitis (look that one up!) have been a source of frustration for nearly ten years. Recently the combined efforts of two different doctors have led me to a medication that is extremely expensive. After exhausting all other courses of treatment, it seems like the last resort! Please pray for wisdom and confirmation that we are moving in the right direction. Pray that I would have the faith to believe the Lord can and will heal me to His glory and that Satan will not be able to use this ailment to keep me from accomplishing the work the Lord has for me.
“Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”
(James 5:16 NIV)
