The power of faith and intention

September 2, 2014
healing-prayerImagine every cell in her/your body
is dancing to her/your favorite song
moving in perfect harmony
to the uplifting melody
that makes her/ your body come alive
and frees her/you of all worries and fears
releasing all illness and pain
as healing, energy, hope and peace
become the rhythm of her/your heart and breath

I interrupt my regularly scheduled blog posts today to ask you for a special favor.

Many of you, like me, believe in the power of faith, of intention and possibility.

Today, I’m asking you to help me harness as much of that faith, intention and possibility on behalf a very special friend, who starts an intense treatment regimen for a cancer she’s battled for years.  She has refused to give it power and has lived every minute since her diagnosis fully and gracefully.

She has been strong. She has been courageous. She has been inspirational.

Today, she must begin to marshal every bit of remaining strength for a big, hard push-back of this disease.

She could use our help.

If you believe in prayer and affirmations, it would be wonderful if you could post in the comments below (please–not on social media) your own prayer or affirmation for healing, on her behalf and on behalf of the millions of others who are battling disease. If you are so inclined, I would be so grateful if you shared this post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and wherever, so as many prayer and affirmations as possible could be posted her to wing their way out into the Universe on her behalf.

I would love to be able to show her how much her own faith and power are being multiplied by others who believe as we do.

On her behalf, I thank you. And I thank you for me, too. Because this is a friend who means the world to me and has since the day we met three decades ago.

Looking forward to all the wonderful prayers, thoughts and affirmations I will see below, for her and for all who suffer.

    Faith is the only one that make this world a world of relationship. No matter this relation is between God and Human or between Humans or with any object. Faith transform a stone into God. It is Faith. Human life is full of weakness and only our faith takes us out of this. Disease makes our body weak but faith keeps our mind strong that combat and defeat every weakness.
    At time of need your friend holds her faith like knight holds his sword and defeat every obstacle.

  8. A section of my daily prayers are for those who need healing…I will add her into that group. Always a privilege to pray for those who need Christ’s healing power.

  9. I never ask my God for more than strength, because it seems that everything we need starts with that. So, for you and your friend, I am praying you’ll have the strength to discover courage and hope you didn’t realize you had. I pray your strength will shrink your fears enough to let faith run the show. I’ll be asking my God to look in on both of you today.

    Dear Friend of Carols,
    A prayer for you:
    God in heaven, in our human bodies we are weak and frail and susceptible to illnesses we oftentimes cannot understand. We ask that at this time in this persons life that you would provide healing in all ways possible. That her body would heal and fight this disease, that her heart would be healed from fear and disappointment at life’s struggles, and that her sold would be healed to strengthen her relationship with You. And God, we ask for wisdom for the doctors, the family, and this friend…to guide each step. And above all, we ask that you would be her “balm of Gilead” and draw her so close to you that she feels your presence every moment of her day.
    It is in the name of Your Son that I come to you…Amen
