I have a very urgent, unrelated prayer request for anyone who is reading this.
I was sitting on my bed when I got the text. “Please please please be praying for Daphne… She’s in the hospital in Chicago with an extremely serious lung issue and has been put into an induced coma.”
A thousand thoughts rushed through my mind. “Lord, don’t take Daphne!!!” was all I could get out. I’ve found out she’s become ill with a very rare form of pneumonia. She was put on a ventilator this past week, and though she was doing better and using the machine less to breathe, she was put into a medically-induced coma a day or so ago because the infection got worse. She has put on the list for a lung transplant.
To my limited knowledge, she and her family do not know Christ personally as their Lord and Savior.
I have seen many seeds sown deep into Daphne’s life this past year. I know that the Lord is working in and through her. As I’ve been praying and seeking the Lord about her, He has confirmed to me and others praying with me in our church that He is, as we speak, moving in the life of Daphne, her family, and her dear friends and bringing both her family and friends to Christ.
While going through the word and trying to encourage a friend in the Lord yesterday in the midst of praying for this, Christ gave me this verse:
“Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.” (Genesis 2:7).
It is His breath that she is breathing. He is the God who breathed life into us, dust! Who made these dry bones to come to life! (Ezekiel I pray that the Lord will bring these people to know Him, as He is, and that they will know without a doubt that they are breathing His breath.
He will save them. He is redeeming this situation as we breathe. They will breathe His breath for Him and Him alone because of this.
Pray that He would make the dry bones to LIVE! That He’d make the blind to SEE! The deaf to HEAR! The hard-hearted to be given NEW HEARTS, hearts of FLESH! That these beloved people would come to know Christ, that they may be called His bride, His children!!
Pray that Daphne would be given immense favor and in His grace, the Lord would present Daphne with available lungs, and that she’d be brought back into complete health; more than this, that by the Lord’s touch ALONE Daphne would be completely healed. May she breathe again, a deep breath, HIS breath, and may she PRAISE Him with it! The Holy Spirit is moving! Please email me if you would want updates for this situation!
