Prayer for Bev

My wife, Bev, needs your prayers!

After struggling with sciatica for four month, Bev had an even more excruciating series of back spasms. Yesterday morning they were so painful that we went to the ER at our local hospital. After an x-ray and CAT scan, the doctor came back with the diagnosis: three spots on the spine!

He believes that Bev’s breast cancer has metastasized to her spine. Today and tomorrow she will undergo four tests so her oncologist can make a determination.

The past 30 hours have been a roller coaster of emotions for us: surprise, concern, tenderness, and faith. We thank the Lord Jesus Christ that He has proven His consistent, faithful love and care for our family for more than four decades. Hebrews 13:5 contains one of the Lord’s precious promises: “I will never leave you, nor will I ever forsake you.” We also know that He is able to do anything, As Jeremiah said, “Nothing is too difficult for Thee.” And our God is in complete control of this challenge, “We adore you has being in control of everything” (1 Chronicles 29:11).

We would be incredibly grateful is you would join our family and the Compass family in praying for Bev. Specifically, that (1) the spots would not be cancer; (2) if they are cancerous, that they would not have spread to any organs; (3) that the Great Physician would completely heal her.

May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus!

Love in the Healer,
Howard Dayton
