Kim's Prayer

"We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed." --2 Corinthians 4:8-9

My newest new plan

Making new plans. The trial at M.D.Anderson did not work out. I believe with all my heart everything happens for a reason and God wanted me home. I have started a new drug and all my treatments will be here. Every other Tuesday I will go for the medicine and on the off week, have my lab drawn. I had my first round Tuesday and I'm feeling good.

God never closes one door without opening another. I'm home now with my family and right where I'm suppose to be.

"Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with my victorious right hand." Isaiah 41:10 LB
What a comfort to know that "the everlasting God, the Creator of the farthest parts of the earth, never grows faint or weary. No one can fathom the depths of his understanding..." Keep exercising your wings. (Isaiah 40:31)

Hi Kim,
I hope your ears are burning because a prayer partner and I were praying up a storm for you this morning during our time together. We specifically prayed your Isaiah verse...I know God hears our prayers....even without all of us bringing you forth to Him He KNOWS you and all your needs. He has you written on the palms of His hands!
Praying and BELIEVING for healing. You are so loved. I hope you, Mark and the kids are enjoying your summer so far.
Blessed Be the Name of Our Lord,
Alicia

Kim,
I read this devotion last night and wanted to share it with you. The short of the long of it goes like this…
Dolphins may aid ill or injured mates/friends. They may stand by and vocalize, or they may physically support the animal at the surface so it can breathe (www.seaworld.com).

The social behavior of dolphins might seem like an odd comparison to intercessory prayer, yet it provides a captivating image of how such prayers function.
If you have experienced a major life catastrophe or loss, you probably know what it feels like find it hard to pray. There are experiences that make you feel like your whole life has been pulled out from under you, plunging you into a state of emotional and spiritual darkness. Words fail. Even thoughts fail. The soul feels heavy and burdened the spirit nearly dead. God may feel far away or absent or simply unreachable. It may feel like those terrible dreams we sometimes have, in which we are in some kind of danger but are unable to move, cry out, or even open our eyes. The Psalmist knew this experience. Jesus quoted Psalm 22 from the cross: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?...I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast; my mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws, you lay me in the dust of death. (Psalm 22:1, 14-15).
Because most of us eventually come to have at least one of these experiences—all of us need the support of the faith community at some point in our lives. This is where the ministry of intercessory prayer becomes real.
When we are in dire distress we need to be buoyed up by the prayers of others. The image of dolphins staying by their sick companions, and especially of their behavior of holding them up at the surface so that they can breathe—is what it feels like when we pray for others and know that they are praying for us. This image is one of tenderness and care, of quiet companionship, and of trust. Surely this is the spirit of the community of Christ, gathered together and supporting each other in mutual care and love.
Dear God, may we buoy each other up by our prayers when one of us is “sinking low.” May we stand by each other, and quietly lift each other up to the surface—where the Breath of Life can come to us, and the Spirit of Christ sustains us through all our dark and troubled times.
Smiles and Love
