The Power of Prayer, You beat it once

Jimmy, you beat it once
but now it's back, full force
Now we shall see the power of prayer
to remove the threatening dark horse

Cancer is a vile disease
we were with you then
and we are with you now
to practice the power of prayer

Though this time is not as the last
for one who is in Priestly study,
to show compassion as a friend
and pray as a theology student

yes one can do both, perhaps
that may make it more powerfull
that power of prayer, that we share
I want you to know that it is there

you beat it once with the power of prayer, you can do it again.

May the Lord grasp that cancer and pluck it from your body, and bring you back
to the wholeness you were, for yourself and Linda my Q10, my best friend.......

In the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit We Pray.............

    Hey Taz.. the Bible says.. Isaiah .. He was wounded for our transgressions ..He was bruised for our iniquities.. the chastisement of our peace was upon HIM.. AND BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED... ALREADY HEALED.. JUST RECEIVE IT.. will keep Jimmy in prayer and tell him to repeat this scripture every moment of every day and whatsoever u believe in your heart and not doubt.. u shall have what u SAY... Amen.. with luv..
