Wanda’s Hand (Updated)

Today, Wanda needs all the prayers that can be prayed. I appeciate each of you that have prayed and continue to go to the Father on her behalf. Last night as I was in my prayer room/library —the words would not come. Only the tears. But some time in all the mumblings of words, the Holy Spirit came in the room and interceded for me. As I type this the tears begin again. Can’t help it. It happens. The girls at work are very sweet. I have told them I couldn’t talk about the situation much at work due to needing to keep my “face” on, and my mind on my job.

Today they will give her a unit of blood—we need much prayer during this process. It is lengthy and can be accompanied by difficulties. Tomorrow they will give her another unit of blood. Her blood count is low, but this is not a surprise to the Father. They have her on a strong medication to pull the fluid off—pray that it works. She is weak—but He is strong.

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthiansn 12:9
If you are curious as to why I put the “hand print” of Wanda on this page, go back and read here. Thank you for your prayers. I appreciate each of you. You have left me some precious e-mails. Many of you have e-mailed me prayers which I am saving to take to Wanda. Thank you for your love and kindness. God is good—and we trust fully in Him.
(Update: She is resting right now, recieved a unit of blood around midnight last night, which, the process takes approximately 4 hours—so there was not much rest last night at all. There has been no fluid loss — actually a gain—but we are counting the blood as being that gain.
Today, pray for rest in between all the activities and tests. Continue to pray for the fluid to come off. She is weak and weary. Pray for them all to be bathed in the annointing of the Holy Spirit—as He gives comfort—exactly what the Bible says He came for —-our Comforter. Pray for guidance in the doctors making the right decisions for Wanda. We pray for peace and comfort. Rest for the weary and annoited strength for those watching over her.
God is good and we continue to trust Him….even in the hard places. I will update as there are changes. She will receive another unit of blood at some point today we understood last night, but not sure when, since the first unit came so late last night. Thank you for your prayers. The Father hears.)

    Oh Angie, I am praying for your sweet sister! Even before I got to the end of your post, the verse you posted was in my mind. His strength is made perfect in our weakness – it is so true. May you and your sister feel the closeness of His presence today. I will be checking your blog daily to update my prayer list.We may not know what the future holds – but we know Who holds the future!

    Hi Angie, as I am pretty new to your blog, I am not sure what Wanda is fighting, but I am praying for her. As I read this post I thought of the verse “life is in the blood” Lev 17:11. The need we have for Christ’s blood parallels Wanda’s need for blood. Life. Healing. Cleansing. May He heal and cleanse her body of all impurities and bring new life to her. May her story be for His glory and I pray for your’s as well. That you will be held as you stand in faith for your sister.Love, Kathy

    Wanda has been on my heart all day. So I decided to pray and fast for her and all the family. I asked the Lord to grant all of you great peace, mercy, lovingkindness and compassion. Psalm 103:13 – “Just as a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.” Lamentations 3:19-24 – “Remember my affliction and my wandering, the wormwood and bitterness, surely my soul remembers and is bowed down within me. This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope. The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, says my soul, therefore I have hope in Him.”Praying Dear One.

    What a beautiful lady. I followed you here from Chris’s blog. My name is Jenny and I believe and worship our Lord Jesus Christ. Please know that I will pray for Wanda. I will lift her up daily in my devotions to our Savior. A candle will be lit for her at my church. HE has said…”where two or more are gathered…I AM THERE”
