Re: Prayer Stretchers/Requests A special Tribute to a dear friend, learnt of the passing onto glory of a very special lady who i got to know through some friends at church. She was diagnosed in 2004...Brain Tumor...we had prayed and believed God for the tumor to shrink and dissappear. It did shrink, but later the medications stopped working and she was in so much pain. I've never apart from Nigeria, Africa seen the kind of faith exercised by her and the husband .....even when she's in pain, she struggles to attend bible studies, always smiling. They left for another Province last year, we kept praying and believing God for healing........just got word from the husband that she's gone to be with the lord....part of the bible passage and song of Praise (he's forever praising God)he sent round to us his friends through email is this:- To God be the glory, great things He has done; So loved He the world that He gave us His Son, Who yielded His life an atonement for sin, And opened the life gate that all may go in. Refrain: Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the earth hear His voice! Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Let the people rejoice! O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son, And give Him the glory, great things He has done. O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood, To every believer the promise of God; The vilest offender who truly believes, That moment from Jesus a pardon receives. Great things He has taught us, great things He has done, And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son; But purer, and higher, and greater will be Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see. And A.... IS seeing Jesus! In the hospital A... always seemed to rally on Sunday, it was the best day for her in the whole week. THIS PAST SUNDAY WAS HER VERY BEST and everyday thereafter forever.........>>>>> Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?" John 11:25-26. Her soul will rest easy with God. It is well, for the God we serve is the all seeing God and the all knowing one, nothing catches him unawares.
