This is my dear, sweet friend Lori Dykstra.  Lori is struggling right now and I don’t know what I can do for her.  I am feeling so helpless.

All I can think to do is pray, and ask for prayer.  For any of you that are reading this note, I desperately ask you to get on your knees and pray ... like you never have before ... like your life depends on it ... because Lori’s life does depend on it.

Lori is battling an incurable cancer, thymic cancer.  She was diagnosed just over two years ago and never {none of us in fact} believed she would still be battling this.  We knew without a shadow of doubt that the Lord would heal her.  She looked her diagnosis straight on and did what she had to do.  And we all did what we had to do ... pray.

But we are still praying, when we want to see an end to our prayers.  We want to see that the Lord has listened and answered our prayer.  What a testimony to him would come with Lori’s miraculous healing.

Lori was in the hospital Thursday night with excruciating pain.  They filled her full of morphine and increased the dosage of her 24/7 morphine patch to give her comfort.  They also found her cancer has spread and continues to spread rapidly.

Please Father God, I am begging of you to rid Lori ofevery cancer cell in her body!  She is a faithful servant and much is yet to be done in her life, through you.  We know you have the power to heal her.  Make her strong Dear Lord ... in faith and in body.  By your stripes Lord, we are healed.  We stand firm in this belief.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. {Hebrews 11:1}
