"So these are your treatment options..." I choke back a sob and let my voice trail off. How do I present a 30 year old mother of 5 with the fact that we've already done all we can do? "...I will support you, whatever you choose." I turn so she doesn't see me blink back the tears.

"For me, I would like to choose life." The words are steady, certain. "My children are still so young. I would like to live."

I choke with all the times I have taken this breath in my lungs for granted. The tears burn hot but I try not to let them fall. Not yet. Its not over yet. Yes, dear friend, oh yes, how I want you to live.

There are days we stare death in the face around here. Sometimes the right diet and medication just isn't enough and the heart pumps too hard and the chest heaves for breath and we see it coming. Other times we blink and a life is gone. Sometimes friends cling tightly to life and are given a miraculous second chance. Other times they cling to my hand as I whisper that Jesus is right on the other side and they slip away to be with Him. I feel it coming, but I don't want to. I watch her smile at her children and I can't help but hope. I know the God who works miracles, the One who calls things that are not as though they were. I know Him, and I can't help but ask it, "Oh Lord, might she live?"



I think of a few men carrying their paralyzed friend on a mat, desperate to lay him at the feet of Jesus. I think of how cumbersome it must have been to try to get him up on that roof, how difficult it must have been to remove the tiles so they could lower him down through the ceiling to the Lord, into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus (Luke 5:17-25). I think I know the desperation they must have felt, the urgency to get him there. I remember that because of the faith of the men, Jesus forgave their friend's sin, and for His glory alone, He healed that man's legs as well, told him to get up and walk.

I know this God.

And I, too, want to choose life.
And even when I have seen one too many die of this horrible, life-sucking disease we call AIDS, I want to choose to fight. And even when temptation and despair is overwhelming, I want to choose hope. And even when man's sin and depravity threaten to be all consuming, I want to choose the victory that is in Christ Jesus.

I want to choose Life.

I know the prognosis. I read the reports and the chest x-rays and the liver panel and I knew the doctor's speech before he gave it, that the antiretrovirals meant to save her life were tearing her stomach apart and that 80 pounds is just too small for a woman of five and a half feet. I know what the world says.

But she would like to live. And I know the Life-Giver.


I want to show her. I want to show her how we hope against hope, believe against all the impossible that He who died to give us life is making all things beautiful and perfect. I want to show her the One who is Life and how we know that His ways are better and higher and that He is working all things for our good, but still we can ask for a miracle; we beg for it.

I clasp her hand and I close my eyes and tonight I want to bring her into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus. I tuck them all in and I hand her a glass of milk with her medicine and we watch her children's chests rise and fall with sleep on these mattresses all over the floor as hers heaves hard for each breath.

I know the Life-Giver. So tonight I lower my friend Katherine through the roof. I beg on her behalf, on the behalf of her children that she might know Him more and that for His glory alone He might heal her, call her to get up and walk.

Would you join me?

Most Holy God, hear the prayers for this precious mother today. Breathe life into her body. Hear the cry of her heart to live and care for her children. We accept your ultimate will, but also know that we can come before you and ask...we ask for life!

Also, be with Katie and those caring for her and her children. Bring them strength and wisdom...and peace. Allow them Your super-natural and super-abundant strength. Show Yourself strong, Father.

I am praying for this precious woman and her children!

I have no idea if you will read this, Katie, but perhaps if it doesn't help this woman, the many others who suffer from HIV/AIDS that you come across may find help? There is research showing that enzyme therapy can be effective in treating HIV and AIDS patients. I will link you to a short article as just a summary, (I am not associated with this website or anything to do with enzymes, I'm just a mama whose heart breaks for the precious people and families affected with HIV/AIDS! ) Just came across it on a web search as it contains a good explanation.

Maybe there would be a way to obtain this type of treatment in Uganda? It is natural, unlike so many of the harsh drugs that have to be taken, and it looks like it may be promising. It's something to look into.

Just thought I'd write and offer what I'm beginning to learn about! :)

Oh, beautiful lover of God, I join you in praying for this precious child of God and for her children. Precious Lord, take the hand of this one you created and have known before the foundation of the world...lead her right to the throne room of God, right into the center of your heart. Father, give her enough strength to let go of her will, of her lack of understanding of who you are, of fear that this disease will take her life soon and allow her to listen to Your mouthpiece, Katie, as she offers her Your eternal life! Lord Jesus, grant Katie the time and patience and discernment to speak at just the moment you would have her! May the sweet Holy Spirit fill her body, soul and mind...and those of her beautiful babies...so that if she is to be absent from this earthly life they all KNOW she is living in Your presence. May Your will be done "on earth as it is in Heaven". I ask this humbly in the mighty and powerful name of Jehovah-Rapah, our God who heals. Amen!

I am standing with you, sister. May the Lord's healing hand be stretched forth this day. In His precious Name!

O Holy Lord God Almighty, Giver of Life, I boldly pray in the Name of Jesus the Christ. Hear my prayer, O Lord, as I join with others around the world as we lift to YOU the name and person of Katherine - a dear sister in Uganda. I pray for Your will to be done. I pray for her children. I pray for her salvation. I pray for her very health and life. O GOD, if it be Your perfect and holy will, give Katherine healing; give her life. Please accept some of the words from Your Holy Word as I try to emulate and learn how to pray from the Scriptures. First,words taken slightly out of context, but in a fitting and personal way, hear the words of King Solomon as he prayed: "and do whatever the foreigner asks of You, so that all peoples of the earth may know Your Name and fear you..." (1 Kings 8); next,again, slightly out of context, but in a miraculous fashion, please accept the very words of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of Mark (5): "Don't be afraid; just believe." ... and "Talitha koum" (little girl, I say to you, get up!); and from Your servant Paul, as recorded in the first chapter of Philippians: "Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. I eagerly expect and hope that I will in no way be ashamed, but will have sufficient courage so that now as always Christ will be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain." Oh heavenly, merciful Father in heaven, as your servant Katie Davis lowers her friend from the rooftop praying for a miracle, we join her in prayer. May YOUR will be done! In Jesus precious Name. Amen

Hello Katie,

I will pray. One of my favorite chapters in the Bible that has helped me hope in the God of the impossible - the God of the resurrection is 2 Chronicles 20 . . .

2 Chronicles 20:12: O our God, will you not execute judgment on them? For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.

May your eyes always be on Him.

Katie said...

We can always trust Jesus to be who He says He is. And if He says He is Jehovah Raphah, our Healer, then we can trust him to be that. Jesus never turned away anyone who came to Him asking for healing. And he can be trusted to be the same Jesus today as he was in the New Testament. We know that He CAN heal, and it is His desire and delight to heal. I will be fighting in prayer for her life.
Psalm 103:1-6 "Praise the LORD,my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD,my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and HEALS ALL YOUR DISEASES, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed." (Emphasis added)

I will choose life with you and Katherine. I will, I am, praying for her. Having just finished reading this, my heart is filled with a heaviness that I know comes from God, pressing me to pray. That doesn't always happen, so I notice the distinction.

Yes, we do know the life-giver. I don't pretend to even understand when/how/why miracles sometimes happen and sometimes don't, but I will ask. I know I don't understand the power of God that I don't see often here in America. But I ask to see it, I ask for His power and glory and life to be revealed in Katherine's life and body.

Heal Katherine's body-- for Your Glory! Let her experience You as the Healer, Our Healer. Wrap Your Arms around her, let her know that you are there with her. Let her feel Your Healing touch as she reaches out to You. You are SO beautiful, SO overwhelmingly good. All that we can do is come, kneel before you and surrender sweet Katherine to You. We want her to be healed, to be able to see her children grow up. We ask for Your kingdom to come, for Your will to be done in this situation. Let Your power and Your love be felt! Oh, be there, Sweet Jesus. And hold Katie's heart, too, as she loves, lives, and serves as Your Hands and Feet in Uganda. In Jesus Name, Amen.

After the lame man was healed and Peter and John were commanded to speak no more in the name of Jesus they prayed, "...And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal and signs and wonders are performed in the name of your holy servant Jesus..."

God I pray that you would heal Katherine in the name of Jesus, that you would demonstrate your power and the worthiness of your Son, and that all who know Katherine would recognize her as one dying, but that she now stands before them whole, and that they would praise you and that your gospel would be proclaimed, and that thousands would believe.
