Lord Jesus, You are powerful and mighty, you are full of grace and mercy. You have plans that we cannot comprehend, that stretch across millennium and yet see every single person. My battle belongs to you. You will show a victory-- your victory-- which is always about souls and always for your glory. Help me join what you are doing and fight what you are fighting.

Lord Jesus, Great Physician , Thank you for saving my husband's life last night. Thank you for protecting him as the doctors worked on him, and worked on him the next day. Thank you for giving us the wisdom to take him to the hospital, when a health problem was so uncharacteristic of him. Thank you for sitting in the waiting rooms with us, hearing our prayers,  and being present in our fear. Bless the nurses and doctors who immediately gave assistance  and thoroughly investigated his symptoms,  who found irregularities and took them seriously. Thank you for modern medicine, for safe blood tests, EKGs, Ultra-Sounds, MRIs, catherizations,  blood pressure machines, heart monitors, and X-rays-- and everything else available to doctors and patients.

Hey everyone, please pray for my husband Shane. He's in great shape, has a healthy heart and rides for a elite amateur biking team for exercise. Last night on a 40-mile group ride, he had a heart attack. He experienced chest pain and shortness of breath. That's it. He just had a good physical one month ago. Two years ago, his heart showed 0 blockage, although his blood pressure was a little elevated. God preserved him--because his chest was hurting, he slowly finished the ride & drove home.

So they called in the cardiologist, who immediately assembled a heart cath team at 1 am and worked for 1.5 hours to ultimately find the blockage in his main artery and put in a stent. He said Shane's main artery was 90% blocked--that's the widow-maker artery. He probably would've died dur

Lord God, I want to lose myself in you. May there no longer be a me, who struggles for a place in this world. Let me only be a representation of you, a mirror of you, an ambassador for you. You are my God, and I worship you. You are my God, and I serve you. You are my God, and I hear you. You are my God, and I trust you. You are my God, and I follow you. And you will make me into your image. I praise you and ask for these things. In Jesus' wonderful name, Amen. "Whoever finds his life will lose it. And whoever loses his life for my sake will find. it." ( Matthew 10:39 )
