I believe in the power of prayer. I have seen too many things in my lifetime that proves there is. On this date, I am asking that everyone pray for my father, Lee Van Hayes. He received some extremely bad news from his doctor today. I think we were all expecting it, even dad, but hearing those words are not easy. WordPress Blogs are full of love and kindness, with a few freaky things added in. I’d love it if I could take my computer to Pop and show him all the well wishes received from my fellow bloggers.
WordPress reaches tons of people. It would be such a wondrous thing to get at least half the people, in our blogosphere, saying a little prayer for one special man. I know he is not special to everyone, but he is to my family and his friends. My dad doesn’t meet strangers, he likes everyone. He is just the biggest sweetheart on earth! My family, as well as Barry and I would greatly appreciate any small wish of good health or just a hope you are feeling better soon.
We are to the point that prayer is the answer. Dad is in God‘s hands and he will take care of him. Thank you in advance for anything you say!

Dear Barry and Jill,
I was really touched to read your post this morning. I’m praying for your father and your family and for a miracle to happen. You see, a couple of months ago, my father started having some problems with back ache and he (and all of us) ended up in an ugly situation. It’s treatable and not lethal but you can never know. So far, the ordeal he’s been through in order to start treatment has been hell and we all try to be supportive but we all carry his cross, too (I’m not saying this in a bad context; we worry and suffer too and I’m sure you know how that feels) and however cheerful or happy we try to seem for his sake, it is really really hard. My heart goes out to you and especially your father and I wish from the bottom of my heart that everything turns out the best possible way.
You ‘re in my prayers all the time (since praying is my refuge and hope).
May God be with you.
Your words are inspiring this morning. We hope your father is doing better and we will be praying that the treatments ease his pain. The family has a lot of hard decisions ahead of us. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. We are worrying far too much and need to remember that God is in control. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Jill and Barry
It’s really “comforting” (in a weird way) to find other people who can understand exactly how you feel. Thank you. I hope everything goes well for all of us.
You are too kind!
Thank you! I understand where you are coming from.
Jill…My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. When my mom was diagnosed with leukemia in 2002, I thought my world had come crashing to an end. Not so, Said The Lord, for through that most difficult of all circumstances , He Gave me glimpses into His Heavenly world…sending His Strength, Comfort and Peace to each of us, as well as to my mom. Your description of your dad reminds me so much of her…she knew no one as a “stranger”…all were her immediate friends.
In the time leading up to my mom’s diagnosis, I had kept hearing the words “Faith isn’t faith until it’s all you’re hanging on to”…in retrospect, I know The Lord was preparing me for what was to come…as I would come to the realization that Faith was all I would ever need to sustain me…and so it was…and so it will be for you…
My prayers for Lee will be on my lips throughout my days . . . . May our Great Physician reach down His healing arm and touch your father at this very moment. Amen and Amen!
Thank you for your kind words. I look forward to passing them along. You are too kind! Bless you, Jill
Praying for your father…
Thank you for your kindness! Jill
OH, I am able to comment on your blog now. You are so sweet! So happy I seem able to comment now and praying for you all especially Dad right now. Hugs and blessings!
I don’t know what happened with the comments, I’ve had WordPress working on it!
Reblogged this on In Love With The Lord Poetry and Prose and commented:
I am so sorry for the battle you are all facing here and am praying right this minute for all of you but especially your Dad whose heart sounds so very much like my late Daddy who loved everyone and called them pal. I know that Jesus is holding him close in His healing hands. Healing will come in the special way He has planned and I pray you feel that love and peace wash over you in and out, Dad! I know my blog readers will pray for you as well so I am reblogging this!
You are there and as sweet as usual, Martha! Thank you for your kindness.
Bless you, Jill
