Faith in the Fight

Today, surgeons will chip away at my friend's body, while mothers and friends and husbands and sisters sit in the waiting room and pray for mercy.

Today is a day for getting low.

147 I rise before dawn and cry for help;
   I have put my hope in your word.
148 My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,
   that I may meditate on your promises.
149 Hear my voice in accordance with your love;
   preserve my life, LORD, according to your laws.
 - Psalm 119:147-149

Thank you, Father, for this sister you have given to me, who loves without restraint and allows me to see your perfect Grace

Thank you for giving me a friendship that reminds me of the playground days, and fills me with giddy joy and fierce dedication. 

Cover her with your peace today,
almighty God.  

Because today is the day when none of our hands can do anything for her except when folded,
and the day when Yours can do everything.

50 My comfort in my suffering is this:
   Your promise preserves my life
