When I was at the surgeon's office yesterday....there was a lady sitting across from me.  She glanced at me and asked if I was ok.....I was in pain and it must have showed.  I told her that I was ok.....just sore.....and hurting even with pain meds.

She proceeded to tell me her story....about how she had survived colon cancer....and had just had her gall bladder removed the week before.  Here I was wallowing in self pity, because my mediport was really hurting and I thought it might be infected.  She was showing me all the places she had one.....they had to move it so many times because she would get a blood clot....or it would become infected.  Suddenly....I didn't feel so bad!  Here this lady sat......with the biggest smile on her face.......and such a POSITIVE attitude.....while I sat there and fought off my pain.

When I was leaving.....she was leaving at the same time.   I stopped her in the hallway and told her to take care and thanked her for being there and helping me deal with all of this.

She hugged me......and as she was hugging me.....she said a prayer for me for God's healing.  She told me that she felt in her heart I would beat this......with God's helping hand guiding my Dr.'s every step of the way.

I can't even explain to you how I felt when she let go of me.......it was like all her warmth and attitude had been passed over to me.  I knew in my heart at that moment.......I was gonna be just fine.

I truly believe God sends angels to watch over us........and he places them where they need to be on a particular day and time!!!

I'm so thankful he placed her there yesterday........

Dear Lord, please be with our sisters here waiting for their pathology results, going through chemo, preparing for or healing from surgery. Help those with additional health problems beyond their cancer. Be with those who may be transitioning and needing to feel less afraid. Your love is always there for us.

Please be with our sisters in prayer on this thread, especially our sister Footprints. Surround her with your love and grace. Help her needs to be met so she may continue on to do your work in this world.

Dear Lord, please be with our sister NativeMainer and help her through her health challenges at this time. Help her employer to give her relief from the long hours at her job so she can rest and feel better. She is one of your healers in this world through her nursing work and needs to have help with her own healing at this time. Your love and grace are forever surrounding us and you are always there to help us in our time of need.

Also be with Patty with some of the changes going on her life right now. Help her to have everything she needs during this time of transition and to keep her well and strong.

And finally, I ask for prayers for all our sisters on this thread and on the BCO site. Help our sisters here who are just receiving their diagnosis, figuring out treatment plans with their medical providers, going through surgery, chemo, radiation or ongoing adjuvent treatment. Help the families and friends of the newly diagnosed to be compassionate to those who are struggling through all of this and afraid of the unknown.

In Jesus name we pray

Amen

Dear Lord, please be with our sister Lita as she prepares for another round of radiation treatment. Help her to feel strong and to get through all she needs to do. Please also help her with her mobility so she can get to her appointments without a problem. Surround her with your love and grace to keep this disease in a manageable place.

Also please help our other sisters who are struggling through recovery, have PTSD from all the treatment, and the rest that goes with the process.

Please continue to help our sister NativeMainer with her breathing problems. Help her to have the relief she needs at this time from her respiratory challenges.

I am also asking for a special prayer for our sister Footprints that she has whatever she needs to feel better. Bless her and her service dog, Faithful Grace and keep them safe and strong.

Heavenly Father, coming to you in humbleness on behalf of these wonderful men and women that are apart of BCO. Asking you to bless each one of them with Your loving and Holy Spirit. There are many here that are asking and needing your peaceful arms around them, and asking to rest In your Bosom as they are tried and asking for energy, renewing of strength and wisdom for the challenges they are facing. Asking for encouragement and stillness as they face fears. May they feel Your love as you allow them to rest under your wing and in your bosom of peace. My they look to you as Jehovah-Rapha (Lord that heals) as they go through treatments, surgery, radiation and test. Show them that you are ever present -- That you are there Jehovah Shammah (the Lord is there) as you stay with them as they all gothrough chemo, surgeries,and other treatments, that they will fill comforting love around them. Bless all those that are in a lot of pain and need comfort, please give them strength beyond their own.

Give help to those who are struggling with finances, insurance, or getting disability that they will find help with Your guidance. Bless and refuel those in need of hope and are new here and asking for prayers. I ask that you provide them with your joy and peace and that they trust as they walk this new journey.

Please be with all the wonderful people that are near to seeing You, May they feel understanding, as they face all the challenges and pain. Thank You Abba Father for all You are doing and have done. Give strength to their families and loved ones.

In Jesus Name I pray. Amen

Amen, Jazzy and BCinColorado.

Abba Father,

please be with our sisters and brothers who are just being diagnosed on this site and around the world. We pray for them as they await and sit in the waiting room for scan results, blood test and staging. Praying for their medical teams for wisdom and pinpoint accuracy in diagnosis and that each patient is seen as an individual and not another number. Please strengthen their support system, family, friends, co-workers as the results of the diagnosis sets in. Guide them as they learn how to support, encourage and just be there for those who are newly diagnosed. Special prayer for those with young children and those who are facing this journey at such a young age. . Wrap your arms around those, going through chemo, preparing for or have gone through surgery, going through radiation or ready for or Adjusting to their hormonal therapy.

Lord a special prayer for those who may be transitioning I ask that you continue to wrap-up them in your bosom and put a hedge of peace and protection around them to give them a peace strength. Lord, clothe them in your love as you and you soldiers help them emotionally through any anxiety and fear. We thank you for being there as our loving Abba Father.

A special prayer for our prayer warrior and Sister Debbie. I am praying that her health and breathing are getting better. Father we ask that any support or financial needs are being met. And pray for her companion and support system. She is your faithful duaughter who shines her light at all times and encourages us. So , continue to show your deep love for her and that you see here faith and t just in you.

Continued prayers for others on this thread that stand in the gap for others.

Dear Lord, please be with all our sisters here who are scared and not sure of the future, trying to feel better from the discomforts of treatments, with those who are struggling to keep working while going through treatment, to deal with many questions from well meaning family and friends, to be able to enjoy a good meal to nourish their body. Be with those who are newly diagnosed, in treatment, or recovering. We ask for special prayers for our Stage IV sisters here as well.
