UPDATE: 5-22-13 Still at it! Just updating to let you all know you are not forgotten!
Hi all. You all know me well enough by now to (hopefully) know where I stand on religious views (I never do like that word religious). :) Anyways....for all my friends on the board who would like to be added to a "task prayer event" please just post the name of the person you would like prayed for down at the bottom and the physical need. You can be as specific as you would like, or just post in general (example: "H&N Cancer, spread to liver, request healing" or "post treatment, pain and fatigue is high, request strength") etc., etc. The goal is to "post the names and request" on a wall in a room and to pray EVERYDAY (one time every 24 hours) and fast one time per week (Wednesday for our team) for the need / request. May have as many as 1 - 3 persons on the "prayer task team" at first, but it may grow to more. The information will not be posted anywhere else online (except for this message thread) and the "prayer task room". For those who do not subscribe to praying to or belief in Jesus Christ as the Son of God, please do feel free to send us positive thoughts and well wishes. Of course we invite everone to add their name and request, but we also understand not all people subscribe to this belief. This thread is NOT meant to offend, just another way of reaching out and offering help to all of us who have been through this mean disease called Oral Cancer. The "task praying" will begin Wednesday July 18th and will continue until discontinued notice sent. The goal is to keep it going. Ahy person who would like to join at part of the prayer team may send me a private message or just post you will be on the "team" so that I can know you too are praying / fasting. Fasting schedules I realize may be different due to medical or work schedules, but the goal is to fast at minimum 1 time per week for those on the list. Best, Tim Matthew 7: 7-11 New Living Translation 7 “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. 9 “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? 10 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! 11 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.
