Today Is A Big Day – Pray.

Cancer: noun. a malignant tumor of potentially unlimited growth that expands locally by invasion and systemically by metastasis B) an abnormal bodily state marked by such tumors C)something evil or malignant that spreads destructively.

I believe I can say, in 100% confidence, that everyone I know has been affected by this word.

Everyone reading this.

Everyone you know.

Everyone I know.

Somehow.

Everyone.

There are few things in this life I say “I hate.”

I hate cancer.

There. I said it.

But today is a day, set apart for prayer.

Intercession: noun. prayer, petition, or entreaty in favor of another.

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Today I, approach the throne of grace, with confidence, interceding on behalf of a sweet sister in Christ. Petitioning in her favor. For healing.

Some of you reading know my friend and her situation. You also know today is a big day. I have attached Scripture to pray on her behalf.

For those of you that don’t know her, these Scriptures are available for you, too. For your loved ones. For yourself.

Be blessed today. And well.

In Jesus Name.
