Praying For Healing for Mama

James 5:13-15
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

Tonight, Wednesday May 5th, at church, Mama and I went to the altar at church where the pastor and several others knelt with us and prayed. The pastor led in prayer and anointed mama with oil.

Mama was advised today at the doctors office that they want to do more testing Monday and that after that within a couple of days we will have test results. We are not worried, rather we are trusting God, His healing power and His directions for our lives. We do not like the "unknown"anymore than the next person but God already knows so that is good enough for us.

In the picture is also Peter. He is doing great! Kind of! He has good days and some not so good days. He has Leukemia but is in remission right now. Over a year ago he had a bone marrow transplant. We will join Peter in August as part of his team in a Cancer Awareness Relay Walk.
I have said this before, but just in case you haven't heard, Cancer Sucks!
