David is in agony again

David's blood test result from yesterday's medical appointment was good. Platelets count is up and if the count is good during next Monday's appointment, he would be ready for his next cycle of Velcade (Chemo). He would then need to stay in the hospital for a week or so to monitor the effects of the chemo.

However, after feeling good for 2 days, David started coughing last night and he was feeling quite unwell today. He experienced numbness in his legs which worsen in the late afternoon. He described it as being like Rheumatism kind of aching. By late evening, he was feeling quite miserable, started having running nose and his temperature was 37.4. He took panadol and tried to sleep but the body aches was tormenting him, causing him to be in agony. Please pray that the Lord will bring comfort and healing, that David's spirit be lifted up and that he will experience a sense of well-being.

As I typed this prayer request, I remembered last night David had a fitful sleep. I heard him speaking in his dream - the kind of warfare prayer which I heard before. While I am careful not to associate every pain or discomfort to spiritual attacks, I just pray that the Holy Spirit will lead us to pray and if it is really some spiritual battle, that the Lord would give us victory in every spiritual warefare. We have triumph in Christ!

"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Chrsit, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place." - 2 Corinthians 2:14

Please also pray for me to have the wisdom and discernment to do what is necessary besides praying. I need to monitor his condition, and if fever gets higher, will need to send him to A&E. Covet your prayers!

Thanks & God bless,
