"Prayer Warriors Needed"

On Sunday I started having some abdominal pain.  The pain was more severe than it was a year ago when I was first diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.  I have been sleeping in one of our recliners to get relief during the night.  I felt like something was wrong but also believed if it was the chemo causing the pain, I could accept it.  Today it was worse so I called my doctor and they were able to see me earlier this afternoon.  I feel like I've done 1,000 situps and look 6 months pregnant.  I felt if a pin would stick into my stomach, I could get instant relief.   The doctor decided to do a CT scan of my abdomen.  Late this afternoon, it was confirmed from my CT scan done in December, that my tumor cells are growing in my abdomen and fluid is building up in pockets.  The plan is for me to go in tomorrow as an outpatient to remove the fluid from my abdomen and the doctor said I should have immediate relief.  I will be under local anesthesia and an interventional radiologist will be doing the procedure using Ultrasound to see exactly where the fluid has built up.  There is a new chemo drug that has proven to be very effective for Colon, Breast and I think Prostate Cancer.  It has also shown to work in Ovarian Cancer but my insurance it not wanting to pay.  My prayer is that the right person will be able to get past all the paper work and give my doctor the release to treat me as soon as possible.  It's weird that an insurance company can overrule a doctor's prescription that is needed.  I know Who is in control and when God is for you, nothing can stand in His way to work ALL things out for His Glory. 

Here's a verse a dear friend shared with me today and is she is believing and praying it over my life;

1 Peter 1:7

The Message (MSG)
6-7 I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.

I still believe this journey is not about me, but about me allowing God to use me to let others know how amazing He is.  
I can rest in peace tonight knowing that it is well with my soul.  Our faith someday will be sight when we see Him return or He calls us home.   My faith is for His victory!!!

"Today is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."


  1. What an amazing testimony you are, Mrs. Pate! I thank God for you and your faith. I pray that God continues to give you strength and courage through this time. I also be pray that everything will work out with the insurance issue.

  2. Janet, I am going to stop and pray for you right now. I am going to ask God to restore you, heal you, give you strength, and give you rest. Amazingly enough, our Lord brought you and your story to my mind today as I drove down the highway, He was getting some prayer warriors lined up for you, I think!! He will have an army of believers praying for your insurance company to let you get the treatment you need!

  3. I heard about you through Kelly Stamps. I wanted to let you know I'm praying. Cancer is scary and overwhelming, but our God is able to do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. XO

He IS all we need, isn't He? !! I do pray that all your petitions before the Lord will be answered and complete healing will be yours. In His love from Kansas. Jill

  18. Hello,

    I would like to have support for the following prayer. Mom (Henriette Billard) who was 97 was hospitalized against her will for distort food roads The pneumology department did not accept her. The rhumatology department refused to keep her but transferred mom to the geriatric department.

    Then a pneumonia of inhalation was discovered. Failing to treat it or to feed mom by oral route the hospital where mom was decided not to nourish her by any mean whatsoever and the hospital refused to let mom go back home until it was sure she would die.

    Mom was authorized to come back home within a hospital at home (half a bulb of scopolamine was injected to her – I was said it was for her breathing comfort…) . She died 3 days later

    Considering that every person has the right to be treated normally whatsoever their age and that there was an injustice of which mom was the victim which should repaired (Luke 18), I ask God in the name of Jesus Christ (John 14:13) to raise up mom from the deads for some extra high quality years of life because for God nothing is impossible (John 6:19, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27, Luke 1:37 (if mom would have died normally I would not ask prayers so that she may be raised up from the deads now).

    Many thanks for those who accept to support me for this.prayer.

    May God bless them.

    Philippe Billard
