Inspiration Needs Prayers...

Before I can write anything about our latest adventure to New Mexico over the weekend, I have a quick prayer request from a friend...

I came home to an email from a dear friend Natalie who writes:

I write this email with a heavy heart.... my best friend Melissa was diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes late yesterday afternoon. Many of you know her, and some on this list do not. She is a 33 year old mom of two young boys D__,age 1 and D__ almost 3. She is beautiful on the inside and out... I am asking all of you to please send this to as many people you know who will be willing to pray for her and her family. The only known fact is that she has a mass tumor in her lymph nodes in her chest and that her liver is enlarged. She underwent two surgeries today to find if the cancer has spread to her bones. My specific prayer request is that we pray that the tumor is encapsulated and has not spread, and that her liver is not affected by this cancer. Please also pray that God gives Melissa the strength and courage to fight this long battle.
Again, please forward this email.... we need MANY MANY prayer warriors.....


I'm asking that you all please include Melissa and her family in your prayers. Thank you.
