A short while back, I asked my readers to pray for "Abigail", 19, a niece of one of my dearest friends who was just diagnosed with stage IV cervical cancer that had spread to her liver. I'm pleased to report that my friend told me today "Abigail's" last pap smear came back with no trace of cancer. She still has a very small spot on her liver, and she's going to start chemotherapy in hopes of getting rid of it. Worst case scenario: the doctors will remove that very tiny part of her liver.
I believe in miracles and the power of prayer. I cried and thanked God over and over again for touching this young girl with His healing hands. While He will get all the glory (and rightfully so), I'd like to thank everyone out there who said a prayer, lit a candle, or just wished nothing but the best for "Abigail". I can't tell you how much it means to me.
In that post, I also asked that you pray for "Martha", the mom of a close friend of mine who is waging her own battle with cancer. Please continue to pray for her and for her family as I haven't had any recent updates. Pray that God puts his loving arms around all of them and gives them the strength to deal with this. I truly appreciate it.
I hope we can go 2 for 2 on this!!! May God bless each and every one of you.
