Think on this! “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, WITH THANKSGIVING let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God that transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Messiah Jesus.” … “No matter how many promises God has made, they are all YES in Messiah Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7; II Corinthians 1;20)
Pray on this! Gracious Heavenly Father receive our thanks giving and gratitude for all the blessings you have granted us. For salvation in Jesus our Savior and sustaining grace sufficient for all our trials — for those we love and those who love us — for the gift of faith and the joy of our salvation and the overflowing hope we have for the future — for keeping us safe from even the touch of the Evil One. Grant us that same sustaining grace for the days ahead what ever challenges they may bring. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
Just to add a personal word – Certainly it was a shock to learn of peritoneum cancer. I didn’t even know what a peritoneum was nor that I had one!! I have lost my hair. I’m experiencing some fatitue, but able to keep up with the office work I do – from home. Able to keep up with the meals and dishes. Able “sit up and take nourishment,” as Jimmy says.
I am committing myself to believing God for healing. I am listening to tapes daily. I am memorizing Scriptures, and quoting many I already know. When the enemy whispers, I remind him that I have only One Shepherd and I do not follow the voice of a stranger.
Our precious children and grandchildren, and our friends and neighbors have showered us with soups, meals, tears, love, visits and promises of prayer. Our partners (you) have sent such encouraging cards. I was SO grateful to Joan M. who reminded me of the verse in Jeremiah 30:17, where Yahweh God himself says, “I will restore you to health and I will heal you of your wounds.” I wept off and on for days just to hear that incredible voice of my God and Savior – sent to me by a loving friend who has gone down the same path. One of our best friends from Chicago (Orley) called and said, “Oh Patty, I am so sorry you have to go through all this crap – Donne and I are praying with you.” People have given us wonderful faith building books, tapes of encouragement, do-rags, scarfs and hats to cover my few strands of hair. Jesus is so near I feel sometimes I can reach out and touch him. Jim joins me in reading and prayer each night before bedrime. I call out to Abba before sleep – “speak to me in the night – your servant is listening.” I havea memorized James 1 and I quote it frequently – I want to be one of his children who thanks Him in every circumstance. Now is the time. When it is over, it will be easier to praise and thank Him – but Jim and I want to do it by faith NOW. My dearest love and blessing to each one of you friends and family. Luv
Pat, We love you and are praying for you every day!
My love and prayers are with you and Pat. My heart is sorrow as hear the news. The Lord is with us and hear us and He will be near to Pat at this time of need. Blesses and G-d peace.
Your sister in Yeshua Rosemary
Although I have not personally met you, I have seen your heart through your touching art which not only witness the atrocities of man but shows the triumph of the spirit of man through the deliverance of Yahweh through His precious son Yeshua. I believe that Spirit lives in you and trust that The Lord will not only see you through but allow you to create greater works to His Glory.
I am placing you on several prayer chains and praying Psalm 100:1-3 for you: “Bless Yahweh, O my soul and all that is within me bless His Holy name. Bless Yahweh, O my soul and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all our iniquities and heals all our diseases.”
Trusting that Yahweh will not only heal you but strengthen you both during this trial.
Blessings to you both. My prayers are with you during this new exercise of your faith. I pray it works in you both the good it was ordained to serve. And I pray you are healed quickly. Thank you for your great work on behalf of fellow lovers of Israel, like myself.
I am hoping not to sound trite, but “enjoy the season. Even winter has its glories.”
Thank you for your service,
What a difficult week it must be for you, but you sounded the right note and call with Jim’s and your message.
I shall now be including you in my list of special people that I am praying for.
” Bring healing to her,” it is written. May Yahweh respond to all of our prayers!
No fear but only Jesus’ Grace – AMEN
My heart and my prayers are with you. You are such a lover of Israel, of God’s chosen people, of my people! God says in Genesis 12:2-33 to Abram ” I will make you a great nation;I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you.”
God’s Word does not return to him void. I pray that He blesses you now with supernatural health and healing to the innermost part of your being. I curse that cancer and call it null and void. Cancer, you have no place in my precious sister! The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, Pat, to bring life to your mortal body. You shall not die but live, says the Lord God Almighty!
With the love of Yeshua,
O, Dear Pat, I consider it such an honor to have met you and Jim at the International Pastors/Leaders Conference this past October and marvel at how God kept ‘placing’ me near to you. When I returned home, I took great joy investigating your website and reading all about the miraculous preservation of the Auschwitz album that led to your commission from God to honor those who perished in the Holocaust through a series of paintings. You became a precious “friend in my heart” as I got to know you through those articles as well as the 700 Club/CBN interview. The Jerusalem Connection came in my email today, and I’m just so glad I picked it up immediately instead of waiting a day or two. As usual, I clicked on the video to hear Jim’s Spot Report, and was deeply touched by his news concerning you. After reading your personal word, I am “charged” to “charge the gates of hell” and see them topple right over! Surely, they shall not prevail in this “building work” Jesus is doing. He is building your life … and building His church at large (of which there is only ONE!) As I stand with you, in faith, I too am being “built” by His living, active and powerful Word. We stand together as one body, and are being built by the “AMEN” of His promises/His faith/His hope/His love … with resultant JOY. Yes, “Joy unspeakable and FULL OF GLORY!” YES! … we shall see the GLORY OF THE LORD for HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL! Hold Fast, Dear Sister. The Lord thy God in the MIDST of you is MIGHTY! He will SAVE! He will REJOICE OVER YOU WITH JOY! He will REST IN HIS LOVE! He will JOY OVER YOU WITH SINGING! Obadiah 17 declares: “…upon Mt. Zion shall be deliverance (they that escape), and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.” YES! You shall possess your possessions … in holiness … escaped from the fowler’s snare! … in ZION! So, SING dear Daughter of Zion! Shout! … be glad and REJOICE WITH ALL THE HEART, O daughter of Jerusalem! (see Zeph.3:11-17) YES!! …”And in that day shall ye say, PRAISE THE LORD, call upon and proclaim His Name, declare His doings among the people, make mention that His Name is exalted!” God is your salvation …the LORD JEHOVAH your STRENGTH & SONG! “Cry out and shout … for great is the Holy One of Israel in the MIDST of thee.” (Isaiah 12:2-6) I am joining in that great chorus of PRAISE … exalting our Savior & soon-coming Bridegroom & King … JESUS! Remember Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20: how he appointed singers unto the LORD …and praisers that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, “Praise the LORD; for His Mercy endures forever.” When they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against those which were come against them. The LORD had made them to rejoice over their enemies! I love you.
Dear Jim and Pat:
I was saddened to hear that Pat is facing a fight with cancer. Jim I agree with you, God is in control. We pray that our gracious Messiah and Redeemer will continue to encourage and watch over you both as He has done and I know He will continue to do.
Yeshua, I ask that you will be with Pat and Jim, I ask that your Holy Spirit will go to Pat and comfort, strengthen and give her a peace that does in fact pass all human understanding. Do the same for her gracious and loving husband Jim. Watch over our dear friends Lord and we thank you in advance for all that you will do on their behalf. In the precious name of Yeshua HaMashiach, Amen!
Love you both and God Bless…
Shalom v’ahava b’Yeshua HaMashiach
(Peace and love in Yeshua The Messiah),
Bro Stef & Karlyn
My heart is so touched by each and every comment and prayer. Jim and I are bonding even more than ever around God’s Words and Power. Thank you each one for your prayers. I am counting on them all…..and I have so much to do to stand alongside Jim and to finish the paintings and continue in our work in the Jerusalem Connection! Specially in these times when our beloved Israel is so under attack. God bless each one of you!!
My prayers will be with you. The Lord will be at your side to protect you. Rey
