Prayer

I’ve been thinking about prayer and how it feels to have so much of it surrounding us. I have heard many of my close family and friends tell me that I don’t know how many people and groups of people are praying for us… across the country and across the oceans. Two things: I can feel it, and I’d love to hear from you. First I want you to know (and share with those who’ve been praying for us) how much I really can tell. It’s like a cushion of air, softening the sharp realities of what I’m going through. I think this is the first time in my life that I can tangibly feel that people are praying for me, for us. Thank you. Secondly, I think it would be kind of cool to have a count of the amazing number of people who are praying. Could you send me the name of your church and number of people participating, also the state or country you are in? Or your bible study, family or friends who’ve been caring from me. It really is making a huge difference in my life, especially now. Help me tell the world what prayer can really do. ~Susan

  • Stephanie BickleI love you so much Susan. You amaze me!
  • Kathy Carpenter CullettOk, here’s what I know from my people. A church in Japan is praying for you, you are on City Bible’s prayer chain which goes out to many thousands and Brooks Assembly’s of God stopped their service and prayed for you Sunday night and continue to do so, we have had at least 15 households here in our neighborhood who have verbally told me they are praying, not to mention the many on face book who have written of their prayers. I have many friends who have told me their bible studies are lifting you up as well. The Riddle Open Bible Church too is holding you up. Oh and the WV Christian School here in Brooks has been praying too. My mom and mother-in-law are praying and Satan doesn’t have a chance when those 2 pray. We love you so much and won’t stop the prayers, We can feel them too.

  • Dana Joyce BirchSusan it’s hard to know how the ripple effect of a strong prayer chain can multiply, but it does. The prayer of the righteous avails much. God knows you are a warrior and now are on the front lines of the battle!! I know of 20 holding you up in prayer .
  • Susan HinesSo… if households average 3; a church/school counts for 100, prayer chains about 50 (except the ‘thousands’ one, we’ll give that one 1000), and a bible study averages around 8…. that makes:
