Join Us in Prayer for Hannah
We need the Lord’s people to join us in lifting up our family, and especially our daughter in prayer. Hannah is in ICU at the hospital, and she isn’t responding as well as hoped to the medications. Her doctor is very concerned that she hasn’t made more progress.
Call out to the Lord of heaven and earth for his healing touch. He hears our prayers. They are a sweet incense to him.
I have been reminded of the wonderful promises of God during this time.
Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20, 21 ESV)
We need to take God at his word and believe that he will indeed do far more abundantly than all that we can ask or think! Isn’t that a wonderful promise? Not only more than we can ask, but even more than we can think to ask. Wow!
Ask Boldly, Pray in Faith
Here’s another promise that I love.
Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it. (John 14:13-14 ESV)
Since we know God’s Word is true it’s important to remember, and to claim his promises. He says that all his promises are yes in Christ Jesus!
We know that the Lord has a purpose in these trials, so we thank him for the work he is doing. He is such a great an awesome God, and he is mighty to save!
Grant us Wisdom
One other prayer and promise comes to mind, because we need wisdom as do the doctors.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (James 1:5 ESV)
Of course there are plenty more promises and words of encouragement to be found in the Bible. Dawn and I are seeking to lean on the Lord, but at times we are afraid. In those times we need to especially cry out and trust in the Lord.
O Lord, hear our prayer and bring quick and complete healing to Hannah. Show her your tender-mercies. Your mercies are new every morning. Thank you Lord Jesus!
In His Grip, Dave
