Definitely!!! A man at my moms church had bladder cancer and chose notti do treatment and it just disappeared with lots of Prayer from many people. And I heard a story on klove awhile back about a lady who had ms severely and with lots of prayer and positive thinking it slowly disappeared on every scan. God truly does perform miracles and is a healer.

God can heal people completely and does everyday. I just wanted to mention that its hard for us as humans to kind of seperate what we think about God from what He does or does not do. Maybe you guys don't have a problem with this but I did at first. I would pray for someone to be healed and when they weren't or if they weren't, I confused and felt betrayed. I thought, why would a good God not answer my prayer? I was being told that if I only believed that person could be healed, than they would. No. God has HIS perfect plans and sometimes that involves something bad being allowed to happen to someone. He doesn't cause it. Regardless of healing or no healing, God is still God and God is still good. It was important for me to learn that. It was a crisis of belief. So with that being said, I will definitely pray for your friend, but I just wanted to say this because it reminded me of my uncertainty.

Thanks for the prayers. And I know what you are talking about. I've seen the other side of it as well. And you are right...God can take anything and work it for good.

When my grandpa died I had an epiphany and it changed the way I viewed prayer for the sick or dying. At my grandpas funeral the pastor mentioned that he prayed with my grandpa on many occasions (he was very ill for awhile, lost both legs, been through kidney failure, heart attacks, the whole 9 yds). He said they prayed for God to take him when it was his time, not too soon and not too late. My grandpa didn't end up dying from any of those things that should of killed him. He died unexpectedly in a house fire. God had a plan, he didn't take him too soon nor too late. He didn't suffer from his illnesses, and he got to spend his last days happy, alert, and lively. While its not how any of us expected it was His plan and we have to accept that. I know God won't make us suffer longer than we can endure an won't take us before our time is up. But it really hit me when the pastor said that. It changed the way I pray. When people are near death I pray the same thing for them. I prayed it when my cousin had an aneurysm at age 19. While I don't want to pray for death on anyone, I also don't want to hold God to unrealistic standards. I want him to know that I accept his plan and pray he takes them at the right time and helps their family and friends accept His plan and help them through the difficult time. As I held my cousins hand I prayed for her. I prayed for God to make the right decision as to which path to take. It's hard to do. I never want to have to face that with my own children. My heart still breaks for my aunt when I think about it. It's coming up on a yr and it still hurts like It was yesterday. I hope I am able to keep my faith if ever faced with that kind of situation. It reminds me of the song dee posted awhile back of her friend singing the song she wrote on YouTube. I thought a lot about my aunt during that song. She is a woman of strong faith and I pray she is able to keep her faith in what God has planned. (sorry I may have veered away from the exact topic but I couldn't stop haha

Reminds me of my Grandma. When my Grandpa died in June she told me about how her daughter died when she was a little girl. I don't know all the details, but she was very ill and my Grandma, also being a women of very strong faith, said she never once prayer for her daughter to live, only that His will be done. I couldn't imagine having to pray that for my own children, but I think if that situation came to me, I would pray for the strength to say that prayer, and for anybody I love and care about. And when my Grandpa died and we asked her how she was doing, she was very composed and said "What is the blink of an eye compared to an eternity together in paradise?" I've never known a woman of stronger faith. She never cried about it, she was genuinely happy about it and knows that this is only a second they're apart and before she knows it they'll be together again for eternity.
Guess I got away from the subject also, lol. Couldn't stop.

:( Its hard because we want control, but we don't have any. At all. And that's for the best really. I like what your pastor said. That's more realisitic than the "I want this so God needs to give it to me."
