Denise Diefendorf
Daughter, Sister, Granddaughter, Niece, Cousin, Aunt, Friend

This prayer circle is being created for my beautiful daughter, Denise who has had type one diabetes for 29 years and her body is slowly giving up the fight.

Denise is only 36 years old and is slowly dying day by day due to the complications of Type I Diabetes (insulin dependent). She has had two kidney transplants. Both of them were lost because she has a super immune system that basically destroyed them. Dee has had a stroke, two heart attacks, is legally blind, has osteoporosis, is in constant severe pain for which she now has a spinal cord stimulater in her back, and now she cannot even eat food without ending up in pain. I pray for her to healed or at least to be free of pain. Please say a prayer for this wonderful child who has never really had a chance to live.

Dear Lord,
Please let Dee have another good day today. Please help her to accept the limitations of her disease and to follow the advice of her doctors. Lord, we both know that Denise has never accepted that she is a diabetic and did not take care of herself like she should have, but we also know that there are reasons for her behavior. Please help her to let go of the anger that she has been carrying around for so long that it has affected her physical health. Please Lord, help her, in Jesus name, Amen.

Dear Lord, please stay by Denise's side this morning while she is in surgery. She is so frightened that she will not wake up this time. Please bring her through this surgery without complications. Lord, I am also frightened. Please let my little girl live. I know that this surgery is basically not life-threatening to most people, but for Denise, it could be dangerous. Hold her hand Lord and bring her through this. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

10/16/2003 12:40

Dear merciful Father, I am so frightened for Denise. She did not have surgery this morning because she suffered congestive heart failure again due to too much fluid and her blood sugar was 1,005. I know that you know this but I just needed to tell you too. Now, the doctor found that a heart enzyme that can cause fatal heart attacks is elevated in Denise and he is admitting her. I know that you are with her, Lord and that whatever happens is your will, but I am asking you to please not take her now. I could not bear it. Please God, heal her instead. Please!? In your son, Jesus's holy name, Amen.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
Hebrews 10:23
Dear Lord,
Please be with Denise today and watch over her. Show her mercy on this day and let her know that you're there for her. Renew her faith in you and give her the strength to go through another day. Help her to understand that all we need to do is believe in our hearts that you can do anything that is asked of you Lord. Watch over Rose and the rest of the family during this trying time and give them peace, knowing that you're going to take care of everything in your own way and your own time. I pray these things in Jesus name. Amen.

10/16/2003 17:21

Dear Heavenly Father, Hear my prayer. Please do not take Denise today. Please heal what ever is wrong. Please help her to have the faith to pray herself for you to heal her also.
In Jesus Name, Amen

10/18/2003 22:53

Dear Heavenly Father, I think i know how my cousin Denise feels. I get angry that you don't heal her and that you took the man that was like my dad so early in my life. We pray and pray and nothing happens. Our prayers aren't answered. WEll, sometimes they are.You really took care of my beautiful son Pejuta. Wow, he's a miracle child. It's just amazing how healthy he is and I know you did it. But the difference with him is people here had special sweats for him as soon as they heard about what was happening. Maybe that's how I should pray for my cousin. Is it? Do you want me to have special sweats for her like they did for Pejuta? I'll try it, I'll ask my father-in-law if he could do it and what I have to make for it. In Jesus Name, Amen

10/29/2003 08:22

Dear Lord, I thank you with all of my heart and soul for saving Denise's life. She is in your merciful, healing hands now. Denise suffered another heart attack this past Sunday and was found by my other daughter who is also her PCA. We had been calling Denise all day and had left messages. We did not become concerned until later in the day because she sometimes goes next door to visit her friend without calling to let us know. Darlene called me at work at about 5 p.m. saying that she had found Denise in the bathtub and had called 911 because she thought she had had another heart attack. I grabbed my coat and a friend who was in the store I work at, took me directly to the hospital. Dee's hands and feet were purple and her blood pressure was 60. Her breathing was shallow and fast. Her heartrate was 140. Her doctor was called and he came to the hospital immediately. It was then decided that Denise would be sent to Bay State Medical Center in Springfield, MA. I went with her in the ambulance. The doctor had wanted her flown to the hospital but the weather did not permit flight. But, as soon as we got on route 91 to Springfield, a State Police Officer saw the ambulance and immediately gave us an escort, getting traffic out of the way and we made in an hour, what is usually an hour and a half to two hour drive. I am so thankful to you heavenly father for putting that officer there at the time he was needed. I know it was you, dear Lord. And as soon as we arrived there were doctors all over Denise. I have never seen anything like it in my life! And, it continued through the night and into the next day. Tests were done and returned ASAP, decisions about what was to be done for her were fast and no guesswork was involved. It was as if they knew exactly what was wrong and exactly what to do. That was your work Lord Jesus. Not man. Only you could have guided those doctors to dod what they did. Then yesterday, Denise had to have emergency surgery because half of her colon was dead due to the two heart attacks she had within a week of each other and she came through it! By medical standards, Denise should not be alive but she is and that is your doing, Lord. I always believed in you but I had never before out my child in hands. I am so glad that I finally did. She is alive because of you! Denise is still in very critical condition but she is in your hands and I know that she be alright. You will do what needs to be done. Again, dear Lord, thank you for all that you have done and I know that you will continue to take care of Denise. In Jusus sweet and holy name, Amen.

10/29/2003 12:59

Dear Heavenly Father, I just spoke with Denise's nurse at the hospital and she is still holding her own. The doctors will be in later to assess her and see if they can allow her to breathe entirely on her own or not. I was told that with this type of surgery, it could prevent Dee from taking deep enough breaths so she may have to be kept on the respirator. She is also still receiving meds to keep her blood pressure up, her heart rate down, her blood thinned, an insulin drip along with a glucose drip to keep her blood sugar regulated, an anitboitic, and saline. Her color is stiil good (pink) not yellow but her extremities are still cold to the touch. This means that Denise will have to have a heart procedure done that finds out if there is any blockage in the heart itself. As you know, it is a risky procedure for someone who doesn't have Denise's mutiple problems, but is ten times more risky for her. I know that you will not let that be done until she recovers from what she just went through unless it becomes necessary. I Know you are with her Lord Jesus because she would not have survived without you. Thank you for your continuing presence, Lord. Let her know that you are there so she can be at peace and begin to heal. Thank you LOrd. In Jesus name, Amen.

10/29/2003 15:21

Dear Heavenly Father,
I'm asking again that you help my cousin. And help my Aunt Rose, Uncle Tom, cousin Darlene and her daughter Brooklyn also.
