URGENT PRAYER REQUEST

Please pray for Mary...this is from a post from Mary's good friend, Martha, also a homeschool mom, and she lost her dh a few years ago...(if you would like to read the original post...here it is...Mary)

The news is not good. Mary has reached the point where the doctors say that there is nothing further they can do. Mary has fought the good fight, but the damage done to her body during her long illness is too much to be restored or repaired. The Lord has chosen to heal Mary perfectly in His presence rather than ours.
Monday she will be placed on "comfort" care. In other words, the incredible efforts that the doctors have made to keep her going each day will be discontinued. Mary will be kept comfortable as long as the Lord chooses to keep her here.
Many of Mary's friends and her family will be visiting her to say good-bye tomorrow.
I'm reminded of when Mary's MIL, Moreene, departed last spring. Mary took great comfort in a comment my husband made in his journal not long before he left this life -- that we would not be apart for long. 2 Peter 3:8 "But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." We shall all meet again soon, and what a joyful reunion it will be!
Later, we will celebrate Mary's life, but for now, please pray for a gentle passing for Mary. Pray for her friends and family to feel the peace and comfort that only the Lord can offer at such a time as this.
**************



For my friends that don't know me...I'm an optimist...yes, I am one that sees the glass half full...I also believe in GOD's promises...I believe GOD can heal Mary. Why? For several reasons...

Hebrews 13:8 (King James Version)

8Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever


GOD's ways are not our ways...we can not look at the natural, we must trust in the supernatural healing power of GOD. Why? Because that is what FAITH is...
Hebrews 11:1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen

Besides HIS WORD says
Isaiah 53:5 (King James Version)
5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1 Peter 2:24Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed

So what about if it's not GOD's will? Some of you ask...I believe it is GOD's will for her or anyone else to be healed. Why? Because according to
Matthew 6:9-13
9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

The WORD says thy kingdom come thy wil be done in earth as it is in Heaven...that means that GOD's will is the same on earth as in Heaven...is there sickness or disease in Heaven? um-NO!



So for all of you that have faith that can raise the dead, I ask that you would continue to believe in GOD's supernatural healing of Mary's body. Thank you!!!
