My sister, Angela (Angie) Lynn Gallet, is in the hospital in Lubbock as I type this with lung disease, heart failure, and pneumonia. Please pray for God to have mercy on her. She was taken to the ER on the evening of February 7 and was admitted on February 8.
Angie has suffered from a condition called scleroderma for years. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disorder that can result in tissue damage. Her fingers turn blue when they get cold due to lack of oxygen. Over the years, this disorder has caused lung damage. In response to the lung damage, the right side of her heart must work harder to get the blood through her lungs. This is called pulmonary hypertension, and she was diagnosed with it on January 31, 2012.
In April of 2008, Angie nearly died of a Staphylococcus infection that she contracted when getting a hysterectomy. However, God saw fit to heal her and give her more time on this earth.
God uses prayer for His will and purposes. We do not pray to change God’s mind; indeed that cannot be done. Rather, we pray because the Holy Spirit shows us what to pray for. Prayer changes us. God answers all prayers, either with a yes, no, or not right now. We are to be diligent in praying and trusting that God’s will shall be done, not ours. What ever God chooses to do is right.
Heavenly Father, You are the creator and sustainer of all things. Indeed, you created the entire universe and have declared its end from the beginning. We pray for Angela Gallet. We thank you for making her be a part of our lives. We ask, Lord, that you would have mercy on her. If it be your will, would you heal her body? Would you give her more days on this earth? We ask you to comfort her through her suffering and cause her to seek refuge in you. You are our refuge and our strength. Father, you are holy and we have sinned against you. We thank you for sending Christ to bear the punishment for our sins. We pray that you would be glorified in all things, and ask all of these things in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and for His glory. Amen.
