Default Power of Prayers

I want to thank everyone who has prayed for my friend who was critically ill .She had been to the point where her family was told prayer is the only option .Today she is responding to the medications and treatments and her doctors hope she can return home in about 2 weeks .

I am sorry I missed the original posting about your friend and I am happy that she is doing much better and will be returning home soon! The very power of prayer is visible and comforting and the results are a blessing! Add my prayers to her regaining her health!

My friend is a resident of Texas . She was born and raised in NY but relocated to a Dallas suburb approximately 2 years ago . She and her husband are Tea Party members . We debate politics in a civil manner .

Two years ago I had spine surgery and she and members of her church prayed for me.

A few weeks ago she was diagnosed with cancer .I have personally prayed more than I ever have in my life ,possibly because of certain questions I have with religion ,questions I was tempted to post on CM but I fear I would offend too many people.

One person on CM contacted me and asked for my friends name so that she could pray for her ,as opposed to praying for "Lakers Fans" friend .I truly appreciated that .

Like Mehawk, I also missed the original post, and reflect his comments.

I pray for her continued and full recovery.

Alan.

I too will continue with my prayers as I really don't know what I would have done had it not been for all of your prayers when Fran died.
