Prayer for healing

I am constantly overwhelmed and surprised at the love and support that we have been given while on this journey through childhood brain cancer.  Both Kirk and I were surprised at how many people came out to Outlook - many of whom drove quite a long way, and many of whom we haven't seen in years - just to gather to pray.  We're honoured that so many people made the effort to come pray for healing.  It was so appreciated.  Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts.  Thank-you also to those who couldn't come, but took the time to pray for Kol wherever you were.  Thank-you also to everyone who fasted and spent time in personal prayer in the time leading up to the healing service.

It was also a privilege for us be able to share the time with others in need of prayer, and to be able to pray for their needs as well.  It's comforting knowing that we can cling to God's promises, and trust that He who created the world, the God of Jacob, our Heavenly Father, will answer. 
Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.  James 5:13 - 16
Above all, we thank God for hearing our prayers; for the healing He has done already in Kol's life; for bringing so many people, from all over the world and from diverse backgrounds together in a common purpose; for the lives that have been touched and changed through hearing Kol's story; for the plans He has for Kol's future.

  1. It was great to attend the service last night, and all the love and support surrounding the family and Kol is a huge blessing to everyone. I am constantly praying.
