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 Heavenly Father,
Jesus healed many people with your power when he was here on Earth and many more times since people are still healed. Please heal my cousin Denise of all her ailments.
In Jesus Name, Amen

Dear Lord,
I spoke with one of Denise's doctors last night and he told me that a part of her heart does not function at all and the other parts do not function properly. He said that at some point,hopefully when she is stronger, they will have to do a heart cathorization. This is the procedure I spoke of yesterday and the fact that it is highly risky for Denise. Please, dear Lord Jesus, if this has to be done before she is strong enough, hold her in your loving, healing hands. I have given her to you because I know that she will not make it without you. It is a miracle that she is alive now. I also know that I need to take action on another matter. Please give me the strength and guidance to do what I know has to be done. I have had a really strong feeling that if I do not act soon, Denise may pay the price! I will not let that happen, Lord Jesus. She has paid enough to last ten lifetimes. Please send an Angel to guide and protect me. I am afraid of what might happen but I am more afraid that Denise will suffer even more if I do not act. Please Lord, stay by Denise's side and heal her and give me the strength to what I have to do. In Jesus name, Amen.

Dear Lord, As you know, I was with Denise all this past weekend. The doctors had tried to wean her from the ventilator on Saturday but she was not getting enough oxygen to her blood on her own and her blood pressure started to drop and her heart rate went up so she is now on full respirator again as well as medication to keep her from moving. In other words, she is in an induced coma. I was told by her doctors that if and when she does come out of this, she will need rehabilitation because her muscles will begin to break down soon. I asked how long she may be kept as she is and was told that it could be weeks because her body needs time to heal. Denise will be in the hospital for a long time. She is in your hands now and I will accept whatever you decide, Lord, but you know I want her to live. You also know that I tried to convey the seriousness of Dee's condition to her Dad without much success. When I asked him why he did go with me this weekend, he did not have an answer. I told him that he needed to go see her before it was too late. He asked me why I didn't tell him when I called yesterday and I said that if he had been there, like he should have been, I wouldn't have to tell him anything! I thank you Lord for good friends who care enough to be there for Denise and for me. I thank you for taking care of Denise. I thank you for giving me the strength I need to be there for her and to finally do what I have to do for her Dad. Thank you for everything, Lord. In Jesus Name,Amen.

Dear Heavenly Father, I praise your sweet name! Thank you for giving Denise back to us. Although she is still in the hospital and will be there for some time to come, she is in the process of healing. Three weeks ago, I did not think my child would survive. But I decided to give her to you and let you decide what would become of Denise. It was you who brought her back and continue to carry her. I thank you Lord for your mercy for Denise nad for your forgiveness of a sinner like me. Please Lord, continue to carry Denise and make her well. In Jesus name, Amen.

Dear Lord,
As you know, Denise is now with you. Her life with you began on November 26 at 3:35 p.m. I thank you for giving all of us that knew and could be there, the time to say what we felt in our hearts. The time to hug and kiss her. The time to talk and laugh with her. And, the time to say our goodbyes to her. My beloved daughter is no longer in pain. She is no longer blind. She no longer has kidney disease, heart disease, or osteoporosis. She can now run, read, and eat whatever she wants to without pain. No more insulin shots, no more pills, no more canes and wheel chairs, no more surgerys. Denise is free at last. Please take care of my baby until I see her again and please give me the strength to help Darlene, Brook, and Tom get through the pain of losing Denise. We all know that she is with you and is no longer in pain but we miss her so very much. We will never see her smile or hear her laugh again. We can no longer go places or watch movies together. No more holidays to celebrate together. There is now a bigger black hole in my life where Denise used to be. Please help us Lord. And, again thank you for giving Denise to us for the short time we had her. Let her know how much we love her and that we will see each other again when it is our time to go home too. In Jesus name, Amen
