Shining For The Lord ~ Prayer Journal for Caty M

Yesterday Caty was scheduled to have her 4th Chemo treatment. This got re-scheduled for Saturday because she has ear and sinus infections and was put on antibiotics. She was released to go to school today but will be back in the hospital Saturday morning through Wednesday.

The story of Caty's journey is spreading and her courage is touching many lives. Recently she had the opportunity share her story through a video testimony during a Youthquake Wednesday night service. You can see that video by going here.

This past Sunday she was also in the newspaper showing off her beautiful 13 year old portrait. That picture was part of an article about photographer Laura Nikas's recent project titled - Embrace Your Age. If you missed the article you can see it here. Laura is amazing!

Next week I have invited Caty to be one of my guest at our Ladies Mug N Muffin Fellowship Event called - This Is My Story, This is My Song. There will be two other ladies sharing their testimonies of hope and courage. If you want more information about that you can go here.

As you can see she is staying busy and God has already been working through her young testimony. Lets take this weeks scripture and thank the Lord for giving her the strength and opportunity to shine for Him! We will also pray a guarding over her health and her family.

PRAYER JOURNAL

GIVE THANKS ~ PSALM 145: 1-7
I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever.
Everyday I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom.
One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.
They will speak of the glorious splendor of Your Majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works and I will proclaim your great deeds.
They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

HEALING SCRIPTURE ~ PSALM 77:13
Your ways, O God, are holy.
What god is so great as our God?
You are the God who performs miracles; You display Your power among the peoples.

PRAYER ~
Lord, You are the God who performs miracles! We continue to pray for complete healing to take place in Caty's body.
Thank you for all the open doors that you have given Caty to share about your power and love.
In the days ahead we ask that you give her strength to tackle this next round of chemo and wisdom for the doctors as they take care of her. We pause Lord and give you personal thanks for our own blessings...May we increase with greater love for others. AMEN!

Your prayers and encouragement are making a difference in her life and efforts.
Thank you for Cheering and Praying for Caty!

Be Inspired!
Vern

Wow Caty! You just amaze me. I watched your testiment and it made me cry tears of joy! It makes me realize how awesome it is that at age 13 you have already figured out your calling in life. I pray for my children each and every day that they might find their true calling from the Lord. I am sorry that some of the things that you may be going through aren't very fun but GOD IS GOOD! His reward is great! Stay strong and remember that we love you and are praying for you! Love Kim Yetterberg and family

Hi Aunt Vern, I just received your comment on my blog. It was really nice to hear from you! Seems like we only see each other on Holidays, which is right around the corner. I have just been training for a 26.2 mile marathon, to find a cure for Blood Cancers. It is something I never saw myself doing, but it makes me feel as if I am doing something to help others. It's the least I could do. Raising $2000 isn't as easy as I thought, but neither is the running part! If it was easy, everyone would do it, right? My race is on November 16th, perhaps you can go and show your support if you aren't too busy. It is the Rock N Roll Marathon, if you're interested in reading up on it. Miss you, Love you...hope to see you soon. -Cbella

I finally got around to your tag, and then I put your link down wrong....I was doing it from memory and put Inspired Room instead of looks. I just got it fixed, so hopefully, you'll have new friends you will come and see how wonderful you are.

Are you going to She Speaks again this year? I am seriously considering it.
