You Must Ask: Day Three

Prayer Freedom’s devotional. READ IT HERE. We truly believe that God is moving in the lives of people around the world. Today our guest writer  is  Gail Morris an amazing woman of God who loves bird watching. Did you know that 76-100% of female survivors of sex trafficking report being physically assaulted and 67-10% of the same group report being sexually assaulted while they were trafficked?


My Prayer

James 1:2-8

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”

Dear Kyle,

This was the verse I marked in my Bible that first year when you were so sick. It reminds me we don’t have because we don’t ask. Sometimes God says no. I know this and I trust that He can see things I cannot. But sometimes I don’t take things to Him because I assume He’ll be too busy, or too unconcerned, or His answer will be no anyway. So today I am asking.


Lord, I come before You now and ask for complete reversal of whatever happened during chemo and radiation. I am asking You to put Your hands on Kyle and make him better than he was before. Smarter, more focused, and more clear. Let him read the material, take notes, go to class and remember everything he learns. Then, when he sits down to take those exams, help him pull it all out again in an organized way that makes the test feel easy. I pray for amazing grades. Incredible friendships. And kind professors who will step out and help Kyle when he needs a hand. Thank you for bringing him to ORU where he can learn and love You at the same time. You are an enormous God, able to move mountains, and please don’t ever let me forget that.

  1. Lori,

    These words are so inspirational even for those who have gone through triumphs.
    I am happy that we have authors like you in our lives.

    Another thought. Have you thought about sending a pitch to HARO quiries to see if your book can be given or promoted in a holiday gift guide? Using people give gifts like your book for gifts and new year ideas. Just a thought!

    Thank you-

  2. I realized the other day that I have a family member who has a health issue that is from a birth issue. I had never thought to ask God to heal the person of the problem. I am now praying for the issue to be taken care of. Sometimes we just accept the way things are and don’t think to pray for their removal.
