I need your covering

Hi, faithful friends!

I have a request to make of you. Tonight, Brian and I will be making the trip to Houston for my check-up at MD Anderson tomorrow and Thursday. Would you cover us with your intercession?

I'm speaking at a women's fellowship tonight, and when it is complete, we'll get in the car and drive to Houston. Then, tomorrow I'll have a variety of tests/scans/labs, and on Thursday, we'll meet with my oncologist there to receive the test results.

Now, I'm not asking for prayer because I expect to receive bad news. On the contrary, I fully plan on coming back to this spot on Thursday afternoon, rejoicing in God's supernatural healing for me. He is a miracle worker, the Bible makes no mistake about that. He's proven it in my life already, and I am fully confident of His healing in me.

But...

Satan is also the Father of LIES. I never experience more spiritual warfare than I do when I'm enduring medical tests and waiting on the results. So, I need your prayers for my feeble mind.

Would you pray that....

1. God's presence would hover over my heroic husband.
2. The peace of God would overcome the mind games of the enemy
3. We would turn deaf ears to the lies of the enemy
4. God's healing power would be evident, once again
5. We would have the opportunity to proclaim the name of Jesus over and over and over again as we go about our way at MD Anderson
6. This trip would be more about telling others about Jesus than it is about me
7. God would grant us safe travel

Thank you for your faithfulness to us!

I found your blog several years ago - not quite sure how although it was probably via my sister who had breast cancer at age 29. I have prayed for you several times over the years, but could never fully understand the anxiety that comes while waiting for tests until I was diagnosed 6 months ago with stage 3c ovarian cancer at age 35. Now I get it so much more than I ever imagined. Just wanted you to know that I prayed for you and that I can fully understand how Satan fights for our mind and fights for the fear he can plant in us.
