Exiting Off Of Life’s Highway(Part 2):Going On To The Next Exit


Well, the results are all in. My wife has cancer and it can only be removed surgically. No radiation or chemotherapy for this type of cancer. “Surgery is the only weapon,” the doctor told us. “And the sooner the better.”

I personally believe prayer is a more formidable weapon and thusly many friends of mine and I are using prayer as the weapon of choice. I was reading (again) C.S. Lewis’s take on prayer. In his essay”The Efficacy of Prayer”, he wrote that; “Prayer is not a machine. It is not magic. It is not advice offered to God. Our act, when we pray, must not, any more than all our other acts, be separated from the continuous  act of God Himself, in which alone all finite causes operate.”

The refused prayer of Christ in Gethsemane answers many things about prayer refused. The important thing is that all prayers are heard. I believe that.

  1. Nevr have I read a blog post that made me pause my internet wanderings to pray. I’ve stopped to eat, I’ve stopped to sleep, I’ve stopped to write (I’m a blogger)…but never to pray…

    Until I read these last two posts.

    You folks will remain in my prayers as you walk this new path. None of us know wher it leads, but we know the destination is exactly where God wants it to be.

    • Bob,
      Thank you for your very nice thoughts. It means a lot as do your prayers. She is slowly mending and we hope to have her home 3-5 days.

      I do believe that to have a good life here on earth, we must not fear death.
      “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.” John 11:25

      I believe this and so does my wife.

      God bless you and thank you again for your very kind words.
