I just received this email. Please pray.
“Rachel- i’ve been reading your blog for awhile and love your style! I cant tell you how much i appreciate you taking the time to put together this prayer blog. God is doing amazing things through you. If you could please pray for me, I would greatly appreciate it. I’m a 26 yr old preschool teacher who has always felt as if i was born to raise a family. last year i was diagnosed with cervical cancer and had a radical hysterectomy last month. All hopes of me having my own children were crushed. Two weeks after the surgery, my fiance ended our engagement. Just this morning I found out I have stage 3 lung cancer and i’m considered untreatable. I’ll be learning my prognosis within the next few days. I’m not really sure what my prayer request is at this point. I’m having a very hard time seeing what God’s plan is through all this. I guess i’m asking for peace and not to lose faith through this as this all unfolds. I thought I always knew what my purpose was and now i’m just not sure. Please keep my request anonymous if at all possible, i would appreciate it very much. I hesitated to send this as i know what you are going through with your dad and i’m praying this does not strike a chord with you. As i mentioned, i just found out about my new diagnosis this morning and have not been able to bring myself to break the news to my friends or family just yet. I suppose its strange that I’m confiding in a stranger, but I feel like somehow putting this out there in hopes of receiving prayer is just the first step of my healing process. I will keep your father in my prayers as well. Thank you so much. “
