Urgent Prayer Request

Mike is a young man who attends our church with his wife and 2 elementary-school aged daughters. This is a summary of the series of prayer requests issued by the family. His condition is gravely serious. Please join me in praying for this family!

Mike went to the doctor about a cough he'd had for 3 weeks; was sent to ER for what he assumed was pneumonia. CT scan revealed a mass on his right lung.
Mike and several family members were told by an oncologist that a 2nd mass has been found near his collar bone and a biopsy was performed.
Mike was told he has lung cancer which had spread aggressively to his clavicle and several spots on is vertebra and one small spot on his liver.
Mike began having difficulty breathing at 8 am. He was rushed to the ER. they found blood clots in both legs and in his good lung. As it stands, he has fluid in both lungs, a tumor in one side and a clot in the other. He also has fluid around his heart causing his heart to race. He is now in the ICU on oxygen. They have him on a heparin drip to prevent further clots from developing. He is not in any pain and is breathing much better with oxygen supplementation.

The report this morning is that Mike's wife is staying by his side at the hospital as she does not want him to be alone if He goes on to be with Jesus. They have prepared their little girls for this possibility.

Please join me in prayer for this family that Mike experiences complete healing and lives many years to watch his little girls grow up! Pray too that whatever God has planned for this family they will feel His presence and be surrounded by His love and peace that surpasses understanding.

Blessings on your journey,

I am so sorry to read this. It is as if I were reading my dads reports only much closer together. I will be lifting this family to the Lord asking for a miracle and praying for the Holy Spirit to bring peace as only HE can. My heart is breaking for them

Dear Mary,

It is in the wee hours of the morning here and I just saw this urgent request. Know that I am praying right now and will continue to pray for Mike and his entire family.

Almighty Father you know this entire situation. Mike is in dire need of your Divine Intervention, your Divine Miaculous healing of His entire body if this is your will. I am praying in strong faith, belief and on your promises that by the stripes of Jesus Christ we are all healed. Please heal Mike right now and remove all signs of cancer from his body in Jesus precious name I pray. Amen.

Love you,
