I need your prayers!

Goodevening to all my precious friends.I really need your prayers.I have been sick since thursday night.I went to the E.R early this morning.I went because I felt like I had a bug, and I could not get rid of it without seeing a doctor.They did several test on me and I thought all I need is some medicine and I can be on my way.They had me hooked up to all these machines and IV pumps.They were running fluids and steroids on me.I layed at what seemed to be forever.They was monitering everything in my body, I believe. I kept asking them what was going on,and the nurse replied, Now honey,You just lay here and rest.Do not worry about anything. Several hours later the doctor came in and said, Mrs.Blalock ,You have a mass on the back of your lung. You need to see a lung doctor, ASAP! I am scared.I do not know what this means.I do not know if it is cancer or what.Right now I feel numb. It is like I can not feel anything. You know last week I was working on a few crafts,and I remember feeling something like the size of a quarter between my shoulder blades.It hurt a little so I just stopped what I was doing and layed down.In my mind I figured it was a musle or something.I just need all your prayers.I hope this has made sence.I am still druged from today.I know God is in control,and he has a plan for me.That is what I am trying to hold on to right now.No matter what comes he is still on the throne.May God Bless You All my precious friends!


  1. Dear Faye:

    I am so sorry to hear of your health news. We are never really prepared to receive this kind of unsettling news. Your feeling numb is understandable. Please know that I definitely will be praying for you.

    Let me encourage you to dig deep into God's Word -- especially at this time. This is where you will find the peace, comfort, wisdom and strength to carry you through.

    Please keep all of us posted so that we can continue to know how to pray.


  2. Faye,
    I will be praying and will be anxious to hear updates.
    I'm praying God will keep you in perfect peace and that your mind will be stayed on Him because you trust in Him. (Isaiah 26:3)
    Praying for complete healing my friend.

  3. Praying like mad right now, Faye. Our God is faithful, this I know to be absolutely true. Cling to the certainty of his hem this night and keep me posted.


  4. Faye, I don't know you, but still I am praying fervently for you. Trust in Him, my sister in Christ.

  5. I don't know you either, Faye, but I sure know that if I'd had this kind of day, I would be wanting as many prayers as possible! We don't have to know each other to know that we share the heartbeat of the Father in the family of God.

    Praying and believing with you!

  6. Jer 33:3 call to me and i will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
    He is there for us ALL the time...breathe in His spirit of peace, may his angels wrap their wings around you and comfort you. Praying you fall asleep this night. We'll be lifting you up from here as well


  8. Faye,

    I found you through Elaine's blog. Please know I prayed for you tonight. Prayer for healing was my number one petition for you, and after that is peace in your heart and of course I do pray that God will show you miraculous things and people through all of this. He is with you...all.the.time.

  9. Faye,
    Please know that you will indeed be in my prayers tonight and always...It was so kind of you to leave such a sweet comment tonight when you yourself have so much on your mind.
    Blessings to you Dear Friend,

  10. Faye, I can't imagine what you're going through. Praying you will know God's peace and presence in your waiting.
    Praying for you,

  11. I'll definitely be praying for you. May His peace which surpasses understanding guard your heart and mind.

  12. Oh Ms Faye...I'm so sorry that you're having to go through this. I know you must be scared not really knowing what is going on, but it sounds like you KNOW that all will be well if you just trust in God. I will pray for you and your good health and for the comfort that only a loving Heavenly Father can give!


  13. I'm not sure if this will help you or not, but I feel compeled to share it with you....

    One day last week I was talking to my bestest ever friend, we have been buddies since high school. She tells me that she heard this new song and that I needed to listen to it to, because it describes me, she said.

    The song talked about climbing the mountain. Now I'm sure you have heard me say that I am not a very quickk study when it comes to spiritual things. But it was like a light bulb went off in my head as I listened to it. This whole time I kept praying 'Lord, just get me up this mountain! Why I am having to climb the same one over and over again?' But after listening to that song, I am absolutely sure that I have been praying the wrong thing! I don't need for Him to get me to the top of my mountain (what ever it may be)- I need for Him to let me see the lesson of my climb! This whole time I have been focusing on the top of the mountain, forgetting my climb. Now I believe that it's the climb up that is important, not the reward waiting at the top. It is what makes us stronger, it's how we learn what God is cabable of!

    I mean, He is the creater of the UNIVERSE, and He cares enough to send me up, teaching me all the way. Yes, He can scoop me up and set me right up on top, but (at least in my case) He has been trying to teach me so much adn I have just flat been refusing to learn.

    (Didn't mean to ramble, sorry) Also, the whole 'we are healed by His stripes, comes to mind. So don't forget to hold on to that- no matter what this next doctor says. They are only 'practicing' phasicians. We serve the Great Phasician!

    You will be in my prayers!

  14. Father,
    I lift Your child up to You, You Who created her and to Whom nothing comes as a surprise, because You knew all the details even while she was being formed. In light of your all-knowing, I know that You have gone before her and equipped her for all that is to come. In light of Your Word, You have said that we should pray for those who are sick. So, I fully entrust Faye to You, that You would heal her completely, that You would let Your holy love drive out any fear that invades. Guard her from incompetent care or diagnoses. As she surrenders to You, may You fill her with the peace that passes all understanding. Let her whole family feel Your Presence hovering over them all.
    In the mighty Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
    Now to Him Who is able to do more than we could ever imagine or ask for, to Him be the glory forever and ever, Amen.

  15. Praying for you.

    I enjoyed reading your blog today. I am still new to the land of blog, but so loving reading others stories. Everyone has a story and so many of them are so touching....
    Hope you will stop by for a visit.

  16. O Lord, we know you hold our life in your hands. And we know that when the plan is completely revealed we'll finally be able to see and understand. But on this side Lord, the view is blurry at best. Our eyes are glazed in human-ness and can't quite see correctly. Lord, can you help us see you more clearly? Can you give us glimpse of your eternal comfort? Place on Faye's heart the peace that goes beyond our understanding. And Lord when we don't know what to pray for, we hold on to the WORD where it says the Spirit utters on our behalf. in trust, Amen

  17. Faye,

    As soon as I got your message on my blog, I emailed you back. I have been praying. I will continue to pray.

    You are not alone.


  18. I want you to know that I am praying for you and your doctors.
    I thank the God of all peace that He is holding you right now. I thank Him that He is our healer and the God of all wisdom.I ask that He will open the eyes of your doctors and give them the wisdom to see and do what needs to be done.

    I will remember you in prayers.

  19. I stopped by from Elaine's blog today. So sorry to hear about the problem with your lungs. May God bless you and may you be able to feel His presence with you at all times! I hope that it will turn out to be something minor.


  20. Nothing will happen to you that God cannot handle.

  21. Followed a trail from peace for the journey (Elaine).

    Father God, I lift up Faye to YOU Jesus Lord God of all. I pray that You would fill her to overflowing with Your grace & mercy as she goes through this trial in her life. All things are from YOU and for Your purpose. I pray Father God for You to be glorified in this and that all those around Faye helping her through this will see YOU in it and give You honor & glory. In Jesus' name, amen.

  22. (((Faye)))
    You know you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Don't be scared my friend. Hang on to your faith. He is with you.

  23. I have rendered a prayer of healing and security for you. God is in control. Hold on to Him, rest in Him during this time....
    "Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders."
    ~Deut 33:12

    n His Graces~Pamela

  24. Lord I thank You that by His stripes Faye was healed. I pray that she will see the manifestation of her healing quickly and that through this the doctors' eyes will be opened to You and their hearts too.

  25. Oh Faye, Oh sweet friend I can only imagine what you are feeling right now. Please know that I am and so MANY others are just covering you in prayer right now! Hold onto your Faith. What good is it if we don't use it right? God is BIGGER than this. He is in control of our destiny. You know, God gave us tears for a reason too. If you need to cry it is ok but when you are done look up and see his arms stretched out to you. He is holding you tight right now and will not let go. You have a WONDERFUl family who loves you and blogger buddies who think the world of you. You are going to get through whatever this is. I am promising to pray you through this right now! Hang in there. Your only job right now is to breathe....God is in control! Big Hugs to you. Thinking of you~Robin

  26. Sweet Faye - I am praying for you now. Adding you to my prayer cards and to my prayer page.

    Things like this really put our own problems into perspective and we realize what things are REALLY important. I pray for your healing and I pray for peace and comfort that only He can provide.

    Rest in the arms of God. He is in control and He is still on the Throne.
