So, I’m working on something in my head and no, it’s not math.
Danny can tell you that math is not my strong suit.
You see…I’m tired of this..this, this battle. I’m tired of Satan creeping into my family and worming his way into Danny’s mind. I’m tired of the attack and it’s time to pull out all the stops.
So, I’ve been thinking, praying and trying to figure out the best way to do this and I keep coming back to one thing.
Now, I realize that some of you may not be Christians and I certainly hope I do not offend you. However, without Christ, I am nothing. Without the relationship I have with Him, I could not walk this journey with Danny. With God, all things are possible. So, please bear with me.
So, back to prayer.
When Danny got hurt, the Community, the Church, everyone rallied around us. People poured out blessings on us from every direction. It was an email here, a card delivered, money, food, encouraging books and visits from our circles.
Know what happened? Most of it went away with time.
Know what didn’t happen yet? The end of our story.
Know what we need? Some troops.
Picture, if you will, the famous Uncle Sam U.S. Military poster. WE NEED YOU!
So, I’m starting a campaign and I think it’s going to go something like this:
Join us on the 10th of every month for “PRAY DAY FOR DANNY.” Will you commit to 1 minute, 10 minutes, an hour to pray for Danny? Will you be so bold as to pray all day? At midnight? During your lunch break? Will you fast too?
How about giving $10 on the 10th to contribute to Danny’s therapy expenses? or $100 and dare I say, $1,000?
This is not our normal. This is not as good as it gets. This is not the end of our story. It’s just the beginning of a new chapter; a chapter in which you help on the battlefield.
Here’s how you can pray specifically:
Every hear the saying, “It’s all in his head?” Well, it’s all in his head. It’s a brain injury people! The brain is the central part of this play and demands center stage.
However, I will not cover up the fact that Danny’s spiritual healing is just as important. In fact, I feel it’s more important. I feel when there is a spiritual restoration within Danny, the physical will manifest.
Just think…head and heart, head and heart, head and heart. And, let the Lord lead you.
Call me Crazy. I’m ready for Crazy. I’m ready for radical.
You know what? One time, long ago, there were some friends of a paralyzed man. They did a crazy thing to help their friend. They cut a hole in someone’s roof to place their hurt friend in front of the only One who could help him. And, you know what Luke 5:20, 24-25 says?
20 When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.” Emphasis is mine.
24 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man, “I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.” 25 Immediately he stood up in front of them, took what he had been lying on and went home praising God.”
What crazy thing will do you to place Danny in front of the only One?
Will you pray on the 10th of each month?
Will you give on the 10th of each month?
Will you fast on the 10th of each month?
Will you call him, visit him or email him on the 10th of each month?
Will you get crazy with me? I can’t wait to see what God is going to do when His people rally.

I AM IN ALLISON…LOVE,KENT LUMM.
Wow, Allison! Yes, I’m making a note and I will stand with you in prayer on the 10th! I have been inspired, amazed and encouraged by you throughout this entire journey of Danny’s. . . .and now, even more so. It is a battle, and prayer is the chief weapon to battle the enemy who thought this would be the end of more than one testimony for Jesus Christ! Be richly blessed, sweet sister in the Lord!
Allison…i think you you often..now i will pray for you and Danny DAILY.
Hi there, you don’t know me, I came through via eWomens prayer but I will be praying for you, Danny & your lovely family! God Bless!
Allison, I hope you know that your family is praying for you,Danny and Corbin, but I wanted you to know for sure ( Danny Day – 10th of every month). Love you all!
Should we title this capter The Crazy Troop? I’ve been in. Funny I had a dream last night and I had not read the blog until now. I was at the Mount Paran sactuary, it was empty, just Danny in his wheelchair near the altar I do not know why and myself like five or six rows from the pulpit. I told Danny “well, let’s go” and then he turned his chair around, looked at me and just got up and started to walk. I woke up! It was a dream but I know, that I know it is going to happen!I’m in this. I am part of the troop.
Just put it on my calendar for the 10th of every month. Let’s watch God work!
I am in….praying for healing on the 10th of each month. I know God is
able and I believe you both are ready for a miracle. Let’s go for it!
Let’s believe God for the impossible!
All in, dear one. . . always and forever.
I will stand with you, Danny and Corbin on the 10th. I love you and am inspired by you. Nothing is impossible with God. Remember, nothing is impossible with God. I believe that and will pray it for him and you.
It’s in my date book!
What can I say? I’m a troop member as well (perhaps having been in the trenches) and KNOW our God works miracles. I pray for you, Corbin and Danny each day, but now on the 10th, will dedicate time (+) to prayer. And now, that effort is doubled with my dear Stan. Love and healing to all!!
Allison you amaze me even more so the progress Danny has made is amazing!!! I’m seeing a 24 year old female who was in a go cart accident. I thought about Danny when I first started seeing her. I shared Danny’s story with her and her family to encourage them and to give them hope because you are so right the story has not ended and It keeps getting better and better. Joining the troop in prayer on the 10th. Be Blessed!!!
Just put it on my calendar. The 10th, the 10th, the 10th . . . Love you. 🙂
yes, we will pray and do so all of the time. whenever you guys come to mind, which is very often, we pray! we will pray that God will bless you financially to meet the continued bills that come and pray for strength for Danny’s body, strength for all of you emotionally. the stress is sometimes too much! prayer can help all of this. God bless you as you walk in his continued recovery……
“Danny Day” is in my calendar on the 10th of every month…. I am believing and excited for what our Heavenly Father is going to do! We love you Danny, Allison, and Corbin!
We’re in! Can’t wait to see what God does.
I’ll be praying on the 10th and will also take this request to my prayer group of 12 women who meet at Lee in the Chapel on Tuesday mornings. He is the God who Heals!
I’m in!! I’m so very proud of you both!! Love you!!
