Prayer Update on Shian 7.22.18

Prayer Warriors, fellow Cancer Survivors and Patients, and dear friends who have been helping me to pray for my friend Shian since mentioning her prayer need back in December of last year when I posted Gifts 2017 #21 Prayer Warriors, I have a praiseworthy update and a request for continued prayer.

Shian has given me permission to share
her update from her Facebook page with you.
Praise God for the smiles on Shian and Darryll’s faces! 🙂
37271062_10215759539362892_214038234907279360_nFive months ago today, I finished my fourth round of chemo, and then we decided to stop treatments. I have been in remission since December, but the doctors remind us there is no cure and much more treatment is needed to keep the cancer away longer. We, and many of you, prayed for weeks about this decision. We know God works through medicine but we also know He can heal without it, it’s all miraculous. So today, we celebrate five months of leaving it with Him. We pray constantly for encouragement, for confirmation, for direction and we give praise for every single day my remission continues. Don’t stop praying over us and praising with us. #fullofGodnotfear

I am so excited for her good news and absolutely continue to pray with and for her. I LOVE her hashtag #fullofGodnotfear (Full of God, Not Fear). Many of you really loved her picture from her announcement of her diagnosis and the beginning of her battle. So I share it again below along with a link to that post for those who may have missed it or joined us since, as I know you praise and pray with me!
Thank you again for helping me to pray for her! Me & God love you! ❤shian.1Gifts 2017 #21 Prayer Warriors

❤ Me and God love you too, Shian!! ❤

 

Gifts 2017 #21 Prayer Warriors

Christmas Countdown: Prayer Warriors are a gift. They are such a blessing and so encouraging. I have many friends who are in need of prayer and encouragement this Christmas season. Please help me to pray for them.

shian.1Shian is dear to me. She led our bible study, and the Lord used her during a very challenging time of my life. I memorized the entire book of James. I cannot tell you how it helped me through multiple MRIs and other imaging, doctor appointments and procedures, and more. May the Lord return than blessing and encouragement to Shian. Her back fracture led to finding she has cancer (multiple myeloma) in her plasma cells throughout her body. At this point she is continuing chemotherapy and will prepare for a stem cell transplant. This is her with her husband, daughter, and son-in-law.

I do not know what God has ahead for Shian, but I know He is a God that can! Heal! Comfort! Just this week Crystal (my friend that you have been helping me to pray for during her chemo treatments this summer to combat her Hodgkin’s lymphoma) found out she is Cancer free! She is a survivor! Praise God!

There are still many others who need us to pray for them, including many of you on WordPress who are dealing with your own struggles. Christmas continues even though someone doesn’t feel well. The year will completely end and a new one begin. We need our prayer warriors… and we need to be one! May God bless you each one who prays. Lord, please be with my friend, Shian and her family. Help Crystal to continue to be well. Be with each one who needs you. Thank you for allowing us to pray for one another.

“Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
– James 5:13-16 KJV
