Hello everyone,

I'm writing today to ask your help in healing my brother. I went home recently to spend time with him and my parents. It was a heavy emotional experience to say the least. We are desperate for hope right now, especially since his last two treatments were shown to be ineffective against combating the cancer. I haven't spoken up much about his condition, I guess somehow it was a coping mechanism -- I didn't want to really believe that my 23 year old brother, whom I love very much, is still battling this vicious disease. After over a year and a half of this, I want to try and multiply the power of the multitude of people supporting and praying for Matt all over the world. Whatever your beliefs may be, I know that visualization has a lot to do with how we as humans connect on a spiritual level. I took this picture of Matt from an overlook in our neighborhood while I was in Tennessee. I ask you to print out this prayer card (It fits perfectly on an 8 1/2" by 11" sheet of paper) and put in it in your daily sight. Please have it in your presence when you pray, send loving thoughts, or any similar meditative activity. I have also included a high resolution photo if you want to use it in another form, and a smaller photo if you want to have something to print that will fit in a book or wallet. Please print any or all of these, forward this message to friends, notify your support groups, and through this collective network of love, I know we can help heal this amazing person. I love Matt Fay, odds are you do too.

I will be praying for Matt and your whole family. Betsy, from St. Mary's, sent me Matt's blog this evening. I didn't realize all that you guys had been through the past couple of years. I will pray for God's peace that surpasses all understanding to guard your hearts and minds.

It is a privilege to pray for healing for Matt! The picture is such a poignant reminder. I am also praying that God's presence will be very real as you walk through this time as a family. I have asked my church (Monte Vista Baptist) to join you in praying, too. May you sense his Power all around you.

ian and mrs. fay - thank you for the updates. i'm praying for you and your family too.

"And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will."
romans 28:26-27

I am praying that God will heal you! I pray that your pain goes away. I pray that we will treasure everyday we have on this Earth. May you turn to Christ during this time of suffering for He is the ultimate Healer. "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life" Romans 6:23 I pray that you will draw closer to Him.

I have recieved your sight from my friends the Jewetts! My daughter Emily was diognosed with Osteosarcoma at age 16. Emily is now 21 and in her 4th year at Utica College in New York. The Lord is faithful I know! We have added Matt to our list. Hope that it's a comfort just knowing that so many are praying.

Matt's picture is on our fridge as I write. Praying that Matt is doing ok. May it be a comfort today.

Catherine said...

The Jewett family are dear friends of mine who have posted your prayer request on their blog.I want you to know the same God who touched so many people thru Sharon's blog is now hearing the prayers of those who prayed for Sharon. Remember...Jer 29:11
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" Matt I will pray for your healing.

Ian - my son Chris Estes is a friend of Matt's and I used to do some retirement work for CUB (your Dad). I've been watching this blog from the beginning and praying for Matt. I forwarded the picture and your narrative to several friends today - my whole family is praying for healing, as are our friends.
