ANSWER TO PRAYER: Thank God it's finally over, after three months of worrying about this gland, the final report came back today from the surgical biopsy and it's negative for cancer. This gland was painless, irregular borders and a had point on one end. The radiologist was very, very concerned and scared me like crazy. I started thinking how radically my life would change with a diagnosis of cancer. When they wanted to do the surgical biopsy, I was terrified of it, and didn't want to do it because of the anesthesia (twilight sleep). I wanted to see spring, well it's warm out and the daffodils are in bloom. God is faithful. The surgery was a breeze, I had no fear going in the O.R. and I knew the Lord would take care of me. Praise Him, Praise Him, Praise Him!
I also know the Lord spoke to me when it first was made known and told me it was nothing, still I allowed fear and doubt to creep in, but still He is sooooo faithful. I don't know what that thing was, but I do know this, the Lord took care of it and ALL we ever have to do is trust Him totally. Praise The Lord, His Mercy Endureth Forever. God bless you and thank you for praying. Our prayers indeed have been answered, believe Him, believe Him, believe Him, He truly can be trusted.

Dear Prayer Warriors,
Praise God that the young pregnant woman that I requested prayer for last year had tests that came back surprising, indicating that her baby is in the very low risk group of major chromosomal abnormalities. The scan results have been good, with just one more to go in just over two weeks to check the baby's heart arteries. The baby is exactly on target in growth.

ORIGINAL PRAYER REQUEST (1/23/03): Please pray for our son Brandon to return home to us as soon as possible - tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. in Ontario, Canada we have a custody trial. We spent 5 years fighting for him, and had custody. We don't know what happened but Brandon is saying he wants to be with his mother - yet only a few weeks ago he never wanted to see her ever. Brandon does not belong there - she has 10 kids from all different fathers, and uses the children for her income- -welfare, baby bonus, child support etc. She has been manipulating and psychologically abusing Brandon and the other children. Please pray Brandon makes the right decision and God guides him back home where he is truly loved and wanted...he just had his 11th birthday and this is when his mother kept him.
I am so scared of losing Brandon and for his future. Please pray for us...Bless all of you. Jacqueline (Ontario, Canada)
ANSWER TO PRAYER: They did not find any cancer in my biopsy!! Praise the Lord!! They still want me to have it removed to be absolutely sure, but I'm already absolutely sure, God is awesome and I know this is OK. Praise His Holy Name!! Thank you for praying and keep it up please. Jane (Virginia)
ORIGINAL PRAYER REQUEST (1/11/03): Once again I come to you for prayer in your group. I had a mammogram last week, a follow-up from 7 months ago. At that time I had a swollen gland under my arm, the doctor said it was nothing, I had them look at it again this week with ultra sound and now they say it's something and I need a biopsy. Please pray that there is nothing seriously wrong. I know the devil is just trying to shake me up. Too bad, God is in control and I know He will bring me though this victoriously. Thank you and God bless. Jane (Virginia)

ANSWER TO PRAYER: A while back I asked if you all could pray for my mom her husband just died in November of 2002 and I asked if you all could pray for her to have amazing strength. Well, she has amazing strength and that's because of all the prayers you prayed, so thank you for reading my e-mail and praying for my mom and my sister. Happy New Year. Sandy A.
ANSWER TO PRAYER: Over the past year, I asked for prayer regarding my relationship with my brother-in-law Gary. I would like to tell you that those prayers Did make a difference! A year ago, we would just say Hello at family functions... this after five years of knowing each other. Today, not only do we socialize more, but we have become each other's best friend. Certain situations have confirmed that I heard God correctly in my spirit... that I was to ask for prayer to make this relationship blossom.
So again, I would like to thank you for your prayers over the past year regarding this request. God did hear them. I give this report as encouragement and so that we all may give the Lord Jesus the praise He so rightly deserves. He truly cares about the details in our lives... and I have seen that the Lord also reveals Himself to us, through the love and service of others (inspired by the Holy Spirit). So.. praise the Lord with me because HE is so worthy of our praise and service...Praise and exalt His name and being above all that has been created and is in existence ; He is so worthy of our love, adoration, and service;.. now and for all eternity. Jesus is Lord!
With lots of love in Christ Jesus, Rob L.

I want to thank you all for praying for my daughter, DeKina. She is so much better. I just moved her out here to California with me.

ANSWER TO PRAYER: November 6th - Hello! My friend G went to the check up a week ago and they found a lump. However, a biopsy has shown it to be benign. PTL! My e-mail to you is below. God bless, Sophia (Israel)
ORIGINAL PRAYER REQUEST
ANSWER TO PRAYER:
You prayed for my friend G., who had a
mastectomy almost a year ago. Because of her lupus, she was not able
to have chemo. She did have radiotherapy in Dec./Jan. and suffered
for a nearly six months afterwards, with burning, lumps/boils/abscesses
and extreme tiredness. They normally give iodine to alleviate these
symptoms, but she is allergic to iodine, so couldn't be given it.
She visited her oncologist in August and he said she is fine.
Praise report!!!!!!! I discovered my son was indeed depressed...and didn't say anything to me until last night. We spoke at length and prayed together. We re-dedicated our lives to Jesus, and asked the Lord to please draw us nearer to Him, and help us to trust Him more in all things, and to keep our focus on Him and not our circumstances. All of a sudden the Holy Spirit broke loose and a feeling of Joy and Jubilation came over my son and I, and even my 84 yr. old mother who lives with us...was feeling better than he has in months. Restoration has come from this in a most miraculous way for our family, and I wanted to share it with all who have been praying. Hallelujah!! Glory to God! There is much Power In Prayer!!!! Thank you from deep within my heart for praying so I could see the revelation the Lord has given to me, about growing in trust, and placing my focus on Him, and asking Him to help me with those things instead of meeting circumstantial needs...I love you Jesus. :) Love in Christ, Sister Joyce +
Monk William Back From China!
ANSWER TO PRAYER:
Dear Brothers, and Sisters,
(Monk William's "full report" is on our page: Monk William In China).
ORIGINAL PRAYER REQUEST (10/5/02): We will be in China for most of the month of October. We will be working with English students at a University. We ask prayer for this trip and for the openness of the people we encounter. This is an ongoing ministry and not a onetime shot. Through the years team members had built relationships with students and teachers at the University and the community around (****)*. Please pray for us as we travel, for the openness of the people we talk to, and for encouragement, ministry, and safety for the Church in China. I would also ask prayer for the Nigerian Church and our brothers and sisters there. I will not have access to e-mail while I am in China. Yours truly, Monk William (California/temporarily in China)
