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.
