"Spirit Lead Me Where My Trust is Without Borders..."
Hi friends, this is Jenna (Janet's daughter-in-law) again. Tony just called and asked that I would update Janet's blog for her tonight. Janet is really needing prayer... She actually asked me to post this text that I sent her yesterday and I was already planning that, so I will go ahead and post this along with a few more specific prayer requests.
------I sent this out to Janet, Tony, Jordan, David and Bryan yesterday as a prayer for our family-----
In reading the story of Peter walking on the water (Matthew 14:22-33) this morning God revealed a few things to me. Peter had enough faith that he believed that if Jesus called him out of the boat, that he would be able to stand on the water. Jesus did command him, Peter followed, faith unfaltering, until he saw the wind and unsteady waters. He called out to Jesus and Jesus saved him IMMEDIATELY... And asked him why he doubted.
In this season, The Lord is calling Janet and our family out on to the water. We had unfaltering faith until lately when Janet started struggling so much. Now, we call out to Jesus to save her, rescue her, heal her. He promises us that he is there immediately. That there is a plan... and asks why we have such little faith?!
Father, I pray over Janet and our family today. We are out on the water, in the midst of a storm. Waves are crashing all around us. Steady the waters, strengthen our faith and bring healing to Janet. We know that when we call out to you, that you come and save us immediately. I pray over Janet- that where ever you are calling her- immediately save her, rescue her from this storm, put her back in the boat and hold her in your arms.
Ease her nausea today and bring a new sense of peace over her. We love you and trust that you can heal her.
In your almighty name I pray!
I write tonight asking all of our friends and family, along with other people who have come across Janet's blog for whatever reason, to stop and call out to Jesus on Janet's behalf. These last few weeks have taken a huge toll on her physically & emotionally. Janet's major problem right now is that her throat is in a lot of pain. The radiologist told her that towards the end of her Radiation she might have some throat soreness, but she still has 5 treatments left and is in a lot of pain that is not being managed by her pain medication currently. She is also still battling the nausea and having to force herself to eat.
A few specific requests:
1. Pray for her pain to ease in her throat. Not only is she having the nausea but it is hard for her to swallow now too.
2. Pray for her nausea to subside.
3. Continue to pray for Tony as he is staying home to be with her.
4. Pray for a miracle. Pray that the cancer disappears. Pray that God pulls Janet up into the boat with him and heals her body. I know and believe that He can heal the sick. So we are praying for a mighty work in Janet's body.
We are so so grateful to have had friends bring meals this week and offer to help out in other various ways. We covet each and every prayer and we know that they are being heard and we are so thankful to have all of the support and love given to our family.
In His Love,
