The Power of Prayer

When I broke my leg just before Christmas, my doctor told me to expect to be on crutches for 6-8 months and to give myself a year for total recovery.
Today I had a check-up with him and was dreading it because I have been having a lot of pain on one side and a bump had formed there over the past few days.  I had fears that some sort of complication had happened and was worried sick about what this was going to mean as far as my recovery.
Prayer is so powerful....We hear that all the time, but goodness, it it just plain true.
After looking at the x-rays, my doctor came in so excited, "I can't believe how much it has healed!  It just looks great!"
I've tried to keep a positive attitude through this ordeal, succeeding at times and failing miserably at others, but the reality is this has been really hard for us.  We are so blessed to have friends, family, nighbors, and a church who have lovingly fed us, transported kids, played with babies, ran errands, folded laundry, and everything else a stay at home mom does.  Todd has had more on his plate than any one person should have, not to mention dealing with a very frustrated patient.
So, to hear that my leg is healing beyond expectation and that I can now begin learning to walk on it again....all i can say is I am grateful beyond words for a God who loves us, listens to our prayers, and heals us beyond all expectations.

Amen! What lovely news. I have been amazed by the power of prayer many times. Sometimes people think that prayer is the "least" one can do, but honestly, I think it is the MOST important thing we can do in the face of the tribulations in this world. You are a mama that needs to be mobile!
