Prayer Request


My friend and student Kate 
is reaching the end of the road with her battle of ovarian cancer.





She has been fighting it for 18 months,
but one week ago was told she has 2 weeks to live 
and she is receiving hospice care at home now.
She is 20 years old.






Please say a prayer for comfort and faith for her.
She is young in her faith 
and told me this illness brought her closer to God,
but she is also struggling with the uncertainty of how it will unfold,
and sadness for the life experiences she will never have,
in these final days.
I can only imagine.






She is a talented painter, one of the best kids I ever had in my class,
and listened to everything I ever said
about anything-
art, school, boys, life, Jesus.

So I am praying that she can be lifted up with faith,
relieved of sadness,
escape this disease and be in a better place.

I prayed right now for her.

When a burden is put upon us. The Lord puts his arms beneath us all to help us be strong but especially with this young lady her at this time. To know she will be with her Lord.

Now we know the Lord can do miracles. My family and myself have had miracles.

I am here to say and family.

We give our prayers to him in faith and let him do the rest.

He is the Alpha and the Omega.

The beginning and the end.

Same yesterday and today and forever.

I am so sorry....she is so young. I shake my head in disbelief....but my hope and faith is in Jesus. I pray that she will be allowed to see His faithfulness and Heaven's beauty as she passes.

My heart and prayers go out and up for your friend Kate. And...if it be His perfect plan, may He prove the doctors wrong.
God Bless,
