When it seems as though all hope is lost, there is no more powerful tool to utilize than prayer. I have seen firsthand the result of a multitude of prayers. Our church that we attend now is the most praying church I have ever been a part of. I’ve never seen a congregation weep and pray over other members like this church does, and I’ve never seen more miracles than in our short time with this church.
Now I’m coming to my church family and my internet friends and family. One of my very dear friends came to me last night with a heavy heart. Her 4 year old nephew, Matthew Schulz, was diagnosed with kidney cancer on Monday. Yesterday, they staged it at a 3 with lymphnode involvement. The tumor has ruptured and it is a miracle he didn’t bleed to death.
This morning, (12/23), at 9 am (pacific time), they are doing surgery to remove the tumor, the kidney, the lymphnodes, and anything else.
He will have to undergo extensive radiation and chemo afterward. My friend, Lisa, is calling in all of her prayer warrior buddies on this one, and I know that many of my blog readers also believe in the power of prayer and will lift up a few words for this dear little boy.
I am praying for divine healing, for peace for the family, for the doctors to be alert and do their best work. Praying for a miracle.
Thank you so much for your prayers for this sweet little boy. Our God is an Awesome God. He can do great and mighty things. We just need to ask.
Earlier this evening, I received the following message from my friend Lisa:
We have had an answer to prayer!!! My nephew had the surgery and when they got in there, they realized that the tumor had NOT ruptured and the cancer had not spread throughout his abdomen.They removed the tumor and the kidney. They think he may be Stage 2 rather than Stage 3 which is wonderful news.He is in the PICU, still on a vent, but hanging in there. He’s a little trooper!Thank you SO much for your prayers. I know that God’s hand was on him during the surgery and believe He will continue to watch over Matthew’s recovery. We are praying for that now as he has a long road to recovery.
