Praying for a Miracle

I just prayed with one of my co-workers. She's a wife and grand mother in the final stages of Ovarian Cancer. It was discovered at a late stage and now the doctors have told her that there is nothing else they can do. Her husband was just laid off from his state job of 26 years, one year from retirement. I heard her crying on the phone when he called her this morning.

Before I got to work today, the Lord told me to pray for her today. I didn't know all of this was going to happen, but he had me prepared. I went back to her see her, but she wasn't in her cubicle so I waited.

Finally the moment came and she was alone with no one else around. I asked a few questions and she told me how bad things really are. I asked if she didn't mind if I would pray for her and she said yes.

I prayed as simply as I could and spoke healing over her. I asked the Lord to give their family grace and to open doors for her husband. There were tears in her eyes when I finished.

She said many people have been praying for her and she's on many prayer lists. I told her that she will be included on our church's prayer list, too.

This is the second time since I’ve been working on this job that I’ve found myself in a position to pray for a miracle in the life of a person battling cancer. This is the reason the Lord has us in the market place. This is the reason we are in Harrisburg, PA
