Prayer wth candle

Prayer List

During the year 2014 I found myself in multiple battles against Hodgkin’s lymphoma. To start with it was stage four, and then (after the initial cancer had been wiped out) it was recurring. There were many factors in my eventual victory. The biggest two, however, were intense medical intervention and the miraculous healing power of God.

I experienced many miracles over the course of that year. And there is no doubt in my mind that the power of God was always present, carrying me through the hardest times.

So, when I say I believe in the power of prayer, it is because I have had first-hand experience of it. I know that God is our healer. I know that by His stripes we were healed. And I know that He will do the same for the people who come to be on this list.

Please pray with me for these wonderful people. Believe with me for their complete healing, restoration and victory. Share this list so others will pray, too. And then, if you or someone you know needs to be added, let me know so that we can all believe together for your (or your friend’s) miracle. Thank you, and God bless.
