Hello, John and Doves,
May the LORD hold you up, Susan B, as you
hold others up in prayer!
Adore [1 Chronicles
Confess [1 John 1:9],
Thank God [1 Chronicles
29:13, Psalm 7:17, Psalm 111:1, and Psalm 118:21], and
Supplications will be answered from His riches
in glory in Christ Jesus. [Philippians 4:19]
Not our will, but the LORD's good and
perfect will be done!
to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask
or think, according to the power that works in us,
Him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations,
forever and ever. Amen."
Baruch HaShem Adonai [Blessed be the Name
of the LORD],

"Phil, Robert and Donna -
and all Doves"
Many thanks fellow watchers for your
prayers and helpful advice. I'm slowly learning more and more to
surrender ALL to Jesus. Sometimes this is difficult and I fall
into my own snare of trying to help myself rather than rely on
Jesus. Thanks Phil for reminding me of the prayer of deliverance
and Robert for your lovely prayer for me. Donna - I hadn't though
of acupuncture - I know it can help anxiety quite a bit and may try
this if necessary. However, I hope to report a huge lessening of
anxiety soon. I live alone (my daughter is now independent for
the last year) so it's very hard at times to keep reminding myself of
these things and I admit I do get lonely - my best friends live
interstate and my sister is now very ill with terminal cancer so I do
not see much of her. These are dark times we are living in.
Despite ongoing prayer and fasting by our family for 5 years now my
sister still isn't cured of the cancer - I can only say in this
instance "Whatever YOU will Lord". It's true many have been
touched by her and her family's continuing faith in the depths of
despair and even her oncologist admitted she prayed before opening her
last CAT scan results (and she hasn't been a Christian woman at all -
the oncologist that is). So it's very true that whilst we cannot
understand why we must sometimes suffer it seems there will always be a
purpose (if we are walking with Christ) and although I hate to see her
suffer - it's not in vain.
She is now off chemotherapy as the side effects have become far too
much for her to withstand. I'm praying she gets to be here for
the rapture - it would be the BEST reward for her patience, her never
letting go of her faith and her suffering which is now just
horrible. She is in pain, her legs and arms and hands are numb
(peripheral neuropathy) and pain relief gives her terrible nausea for
which the anti nausea drugs don't
do much for her case in particular. So I would also appreciate
your prayers for my sister - Christine. Again - many
thanks. Even though I was brought up in Church every Sunday and
my Mother and Father were full of faith I consider myself a baby
Christian still as I walked away for many years..... only by His grace
in giving me affliction in my life did I fully turn back. I would
not swap that for anything in the world.
May God bless you all - and all the Doves richly,
Your sister In Christ,
Susan in Aussie Land.
