I just received an email from one of FOTM’s friends, PatriotUSA.
He’s asking us to pray for a fellow patriot named Dave (“Thirdwavedave”), of the blog Radio Patriot.
Dave was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in late February 2007. He is now clinging to life and desperately needs a miracle — and our prayers.
There is a more detailed account of Dave’s ailment and condition on Radio Patriot. Click here.
PatriotUSA didn’t ask for it, but I’m asking you all to also pray for him. This is what PatriotUSA wrote in his email to me:
“My apologies for being a bit scarce form FOTM but I have taken a very bad turn for the worse due to my failed spinal fusions and the last two weeks have been literally hellish. I have barely been able to work and had a huge interview this past Thursday for a position with senior disabled services that took me several days to prepare for. So I am on a razor’s edge but I am blessed beyond measure and rich with treasures from Jesus with each day I have even if I feel like roadkill.”
Prayer for Thirdwavedave and PatriotUSA
Dear Heavenly Father:
You are a stern but merciful and loving God.
We know that you love us in spite of ourselves. You love us so much that you sent your only Son to suffer and die for us, so that we may be saved.
Your son, Jesus the Christ, told us that not a sparrow falls on the ground without your knowledge and your will; that we must become like little children again; and that “if you have faith, everything you ask for in prayer, you will receive.”
Therefore, it is with a childlike trust and innocence that we come to You. We humbly ask that you bless Dave and PatriotUSA with your healing grace, love, and peace.
In the name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Update (August 8, 2012):
Sadly, I received an email this morning from PatriotUSA that Dave had passed away. PatriotUSA writes:
“ThirdWaveDave is now home with Lord. We must all be sure to vote Obama out of office in honor of Dave, it is the very least we can do. I am numb am going to pray as I know not else what to do.”
This is the email I wrote PatriotUSA:
“I am so sorry for your pain and loss. Above all, our prayers always had been that we do in accordance to God’s will.
Though gone from this mortal coil, Dave is now with God and will continue to fight the good fight — but with Angels and Saints by his side. I know that, should I be so blessed as to ‘go to Heaven’ after my body dies, I would want to continue as a little soldier in St. Michael the Archangel’s army.
So wipe your tears away and rejoice, PatriotUSA. Heaven just welcomed a new angel named ThirdWaveDave.”
