Greetings, I thought I would reach out to you, my faithful blog readers with the following prayer request.
Over the last 18 months, I have had several people that have asked for prayer either for themself or a loved one who is fighting a battle with COVID. I have prayed for them and their loved ones. Today, I am asking you to join me in prayer for a friend in Arizona. Leo and his family are dear to us and they need prayer. Leo has been hospitalized for about a month and he is currently in the ICU. He is in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator and has been on continuous dialysis for more than two weeks. As bad as that sounds, there has actually been quite a bit of positive progress along with some setbacks. He is basically stable on life support and yet he seems to be stuck. We need a breakthrough. I will be praying for him a lot over this weekend and I’m asking for people who know how to pray to join me. Enough is enough. Leo needs to get home with his family. We need to pray that every organ, nerve and tissue in his body needs to wake up. His heart needs to beat regular strong beats, his lungs need to absorb every bit of oxygen and we need to see oxygen uptake at 95% or better. His kidneys need to restart and function at 100 percent efficiency. He is past the actual COVID infection. Now we are dealing with damage done as a result of that. Join with me and together let’s contend for the complete restoration of Leo’s life and the complete healing of his body. Thank you. If you are unsure how to pray, I am putting a simple resource for you at the bottom of this page.
Other posts will be starting again later in the fall and I will be posting some updates and announcements soon.
Until next time, may God’s richest blessings be yours in Christ today.
If you are unsure of how to pray, Here is a prayer based upon scripture.
Father, we pray for Leo who has been affected by this virus and ask You to surround him with Your presence. You are Jehovah Rapha, who takes sickness out of his midst. Because Leo is struggling to breathe, we ask You to breathe life into his lungs and clear his respiratory systems. Nothing is too hard for You and nothing is impossible to those who believe. I offer this prayer of faith that will heal the sick. Lord, You will raise Leo up, and if he has committed sins they will be forgiven, in the name of Jesus. We look to You, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
