The Power of Prayer – for Ella Cain

January 7th, 2012 | Posted by Bryn in Faith - (Comments Off on The Power of Prayer – for Ella Cain)

I believe in the power of prayer. Do you?

This week in Quincy, IL, a family lost their home to an electrical fire. Their 15 month old daughter suffered severe burns and will likely be in the hospital for several months. If you believe in the power of prayer, please pray for Ella Cain. You can join the Facebook group to pray for her and receive updates here.

In addition, if you’d like to donate clothing, toiletries, other household items or make a monetary donation, please visit help-ella.com.

I have never met anyone in this family, but I do believe in the power of prayer that this little girl’s tiny body may be healed. If you don’t know how to start your prayer, just pray with me now.

Psalm 30:2 –¬†O Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and you have healed me.

Almighty Lord, I praise you and adore you. You are my creator and you rule over all things. You are everything that is, was, and shall be.
I am truly sorry for everything I have done wrong lately, and I know that I am not worthy of your love and mercy. Please forgive my sins. Thank you for loving me and all your children anyway.

Lord Jesus, thank you for all the blessings in my life and for the blessings you have shown the Cain family. Although Ella is hurt, she is alive, she is the care of excellent doctors and nurses, and she has given so many people a real reason to hope and pray. Please heal her tiny body, lay your healing hands on her, Lord. Be with her doctors and nurses; guide their hands as they perform surgeries and procedures, and give them the knowledge on which paths to take in her recovery. Lord, be with Ella’s parents, her brother, her family, and everyone who loves her. Give them comfort in their times of need. Give them strength in times of weakness. Give them hope when things seem hopeless. And let them feel your love and the love of the thousands praying for them. Please also bless all those suffering for any reason, especially children and their parents. I ask these things in your holy name, Amen.

See? It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, just a quick prayer will do.
