Seeking Prayer for Emily

13 July 2011

Dear friends, I am posting now to request that you pray for Emily today. She is a beautiful sixteen year old girl, and she has leukemia. Throughout the many trials she has had to go through these past two years ever since she was diagnosed in 2010, Emily never fails to seek comfort in His love and protection, despite the uncertain future. In her own words, "...it was only [when I was diagnosed] that I realized how important my faith is to me." 

And now, He has opened an opportunity so that she may come to the U.S. to be treated. It is our fervent prayer that these treatments may be the end of Emily's disease, and a kindly friend (known in blogworld as "Mr. Money") has generously agreed to donate the required funds and airfare costs. This is truly something to be thankful for and to pray over. Emily's friends and family have organized a prayer vigil for her, which will take place at 8 o' clock P.M. UK time (that's 2 o' clock P.M. CDT). I know it would mean a great deal to Emily if we all kept her in our prayers today. As it says in Matthew 21:22, "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."

Thank you.
