It's been an amazing couple of weeks in which God has encouraged us by letting us know we're being prayed for. Here's a few examples:
1) As I was dropping some books off at the library drop box, a mailman (who goes to our church) bikes by and calls out, "How are you? Our family's praying for you."
2) When I was getting my haircut by a hairdresser that had cut my daughter's hair before, but not mine, she found out more details of our illness and encouraged me to keep praying fervantly. She gave me a "praying" pep talk as she shared her struggle with cancer and God's faithfulness as she leaned on Him. She said she'd pray for me and asked if she could have her church pray for us the next Sunday. She insisted I keep her updated.
3) When I was getting my treatment yesterday, the lady that gives it told me that she prays the whole time she gives my daughter her treatment.
4) We've been prayed for during worship the last couple of weeks and our parents have told us we're prayed for consistently at theirs.
We know we've been prayed for by so many friends and loved ones throughout this long illness, but lately, it has felt that the prayers are pouring over us. The peace and encouragement received by knowing that we are soaked in prayers is upholding us. Thanks be to God!
