Prayer, Plain and Simple

Michele McGinty is a blogger here at Beliefnet on Reformed Chicks Blabbing, who has been struggling with cancer for some time now. We received an update saying that her cancer has returned and it is very aggressive. She is experiencing a great deal of pain and gastrointestinal distress and has asked that we pray for her. So please join us here at Beliefnet as we pray for Michele. Also feel free to post your prayer for her on her blog.

Heavenly Father,

As Michele fights this battle with cancer, we pray for her strength. You have seen her through this before and we really want to believe that you will see her through again. We know that you are Jehovah Rophe, the God who mends and heals stitch by stitch. Mend and heal Michele stitch by stitch, strengthen every weak part of her body. Where there is distress, let there be relief. Where there is pain, let there be comfort. Give the doctors and specialists who are taking care of her knowledge, wisdom and discernment so that they may rightly do their job in treating and curing her. Be with Michele in her moments of quiet and help her to find you in the midst of this trial. According to your word, may your strength be made perfect in her weakness and may your grace be sufficient for her. 1 Corinthians 4:17 says, “For this light and momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison…” We believe that this is simply a light and momentary affliction and that her healing is ever present. May your healing be made manifest in her body and as you heal her, may she find utter and complete rest in your arms. Continue to bring angels by her bedside to comfort and protect her and let there be a flood of love from all of her family and friends surrounding her in her time of need. We claim her healing in the name of Jesus, but more importantly, we claim your will be done in the life of Michele McGinty so that you can be glorified. May we continually give ourselves in prayer to you, for her.

In Jesus Name,
