Love Medicine Miracles

Posted: October 15, 2010 in Facebook, In the News, Living With

There isno greater healer than our Lord and God and when the medical fraternityunderstands this their potential to heal is even greater. I was reassured whenmy doctor once suggested that I pray at a time when all else was in thebalance. I am happy to be here today to report that crisis is no longer animmediate threat. He is the physician who now has most of my trust of allearthly men. For the real serious stuff I consult the greatest of allphysicians. With His Love He direct all others with the Medicine to make hisMiracles our reality.

 

Love Medicine Miracles

 

Lord our
God you are to us

Our
strength and salvation and thus

Vulnerable
times we turn even more to you

Earnestly
pray and know our prayers will come through

 

My God, my
savior, my Father and friend

Every day
I’ll pray to you and on you I’ll depend

Disease
may trouble the body but need never touch the soul

If in you I
trust and have faith and give you control

Caring God
you gave us the freedom of choice

In times
you hear us even before we can voice

Needs,
desires, wants, wishes and prayers

Every
choice we made you’ve been there over the years

 

My friend
chose a path from a very young boy

In front
to lead and our dragons destroy

Raised his
hand for justice and served your will

And now
his steps are slowed his body is ill

Come to
his rescue Lord his choice was a difficult one

Lord he
understood what was required and as his office begun

Ecumenical
services he held that you could direct his way

So Lord be
his strength and salvation, heal him today

Never a “t”uncrossed nor an “i” not dotted. Our Prime Minister has always kept a watchfuleye on things that will affect those in his care. When he said close friend andconfidant I am very clear what he means. His is a true friend and has alwaysbeen a confidant.

 

       Dear Loving People of St John

 

Did you read his letter, did you feel like me

Engrossed in his manner, wrapped in his sincerity

And did you fall to your knees to pray

Right away asking the Lord to cleanse him, today

 

Looking back it was since ’87 that he represented St John

Over 23 years shared drinks, jokes, visit homes, churches and took on  

Very many roles and still had time to relax

In the parish with his constituents who he enjoyed the max

Not enough to just speak through his addresses to the country

Got too strong a bond from face to face visits in his constituency

 

Personalize letter he hoped would better suffice

Even though page limitations forced him to be concise

On hard courts at Gall Hill, on the streets of Cherry Grove

Places like Society, Venture, Edgehill and where he drove

Like Massiah Street, Mount Tabor and Wilson Hill

Eagerly he hope to do it all over again and pray it’s God’s will

 

Our PM promised St John “I am yours and you are mine”

Faithfully selecting deputies to continue his design

 

St JohnBe comforted in the knowledge that” in his difficulty

This experience has brought him much closer to the Almighty

Join together and continue your prayers for God has smiled

One day He will “bless …every family of St John; each and every child

He remains not just our caring Prime Minister to the very end

No, he is our dedicated representative, confidant and true friend.

 

 

 


Psalms 23
is a very familiar one to most. We all learned it at school or at church
reciting it regularly until we committed it to memory. I was careful not to say
knew it by heart because I am one of those kids that never really understood
what I was saying.

 

The LORD Is Our Shepherd

 

That means
He watches over me and you

He watches
over everyone, our Prime Minister too

Everything
can be ours, we lack for naught

 

Lays His
abundance before us as the Word has thought

On
righteous paths He leads us for His name sake

Restores
our souls from what stress and illness make

Danger
lurks in the shadows that we may walk

 

In these
valleys we fear no evil, no rumor talk

Staff and
rod are there LORD to comfort us all

 

On you
LORD we wait because you come when we call

Under
weakened times as he lays his head

Rumors of
the Prime Minister take root and start to spread

 

Such
dangerous words devised to impede those who pray

Has no
effect because such weapons forged will wither away

Enemies
abound but in their presence you Lord faithfully

Prepare a
place of solace for those who live righteously

His head
you have anointed Father and his cup runs over

Every day
you’ll bless our PM until clearing the cancer

Rid of its
threat and benefiting from God’s goodness and mercy

Dwelling
in the house of the LORD for all eternity

 

 

 

Today I amassured that my old school friend and Prime Minister is comforted know that theLord is there by his side to guide him through this very dark time.  We do not know how the Lord does the things hedoes, it is beyond our understanding but we can have faith that what ever Hedoes is best done. 

 

One Set Of Footprints In The Sands

 

Our Father my friend promised faithfully

Not to stray from your path and you would loyally

Escort him through life’s troubles and fears

 

So he can lead his people for many years

Every turn he took I can see in the sands

That you walked side by side and guided with your hands

 

On this path he walks it’s the most difficult he has been

For this time the troubles are personal and deep within

 

Father you had promised to always stay

On the path with him and never walk away

Only it is disturbing what I see

There is only one set of footprints behind my old school buddy

Prime Minister of Barbados now wants you more

Return to him Father where you were before

I feel you walk with me everyday

Now walk too with my Prime Minister, all the way

This is the time he needs you the most

So Father please go to my friend and draw close

 

I don’t understand why you left him when he needs you near

Not when you promised him to always be there

 

Tell me Father what would make you go away

He is a generous, unselfish leader who prays every day

Even when he was most busy he followed you

 

Shared his revelations with close friends he knew

And so Father why, why are you not by his side too  

No, no my child, you don’t understand the thing I do

Don’t be troubled my child, the Prime Minister understands

See now I carry him there’s only One Set Of Footprints In The Sands

 

 

 


They werenot mere fleeting words but words of reassurance to His most faithful, to hisstrongest believers. Yet even as He spoke with them there were still questions thatshowed their uncertainties. We understand why you then are uncertain, you didn’twitness the miracle they did and still hd doubts. But friend some choices areclear, do nothing and get nothing or do something and open the possibility thatthe Father can help.

John141:14

If yeshall ask any thing in my name, I will do it

 

 

Ask Any Thing In My Name I Will Do It

 

And Let
not your heart be troubled: ye

Should
believe in God and believe also in me

Kingdom of
my Father has many mansions, one will be thine

 

And when I
go and prepare it for you, I’ll return that you’ll find

No place
you go I wouldn’t be there

You can
call on me any time, any where

 

Then He
said He is “the way, the truth, and the life”

He is God’s
mediator to man or woman even as husband and wife

If those
that were with Him were filled with doubt

Notice Thomas
and Philip questioned Him  to check
things out

Got ye no
faith after this time we had spent

 

In such
close togetherness and all the places we went

Nothing He
had done wasn’t done in the Father’s name

 

Me and the
Father are as good as one and the same

Yet
mankind has remained troubled in their work today

 

Notice how
many doubt yet kneel to pray

Ask any
thing in my name I will do it

Make your
requests to the Lord and then fully commit

Every trouble
you take to Him you can feel

 

It will be
made right just give Jesus the wheel

 

When you
prayer have faith that something will be done

If you
will trust in the Father then you have already won

Let not
your heart be troubled believe in He

Live in
faith, obedience and live righteously

 

Did you
pray that the Father heal our Prime Minister

Once you
had done your part sat back and encouraged no other

 

If you
want to help friends then to others admit

That Jesus
said “Ask any thing in my name, I will do it

 

 

 

It’s hard for me to understand the intricacies of Government and therefore I am not able to comment on the shifts in Ministerial portfolios and so I will leave that to those who can. My comment about the Prime Minister and my very dear friend is that I am very touched by the way he continues to put the interest of all Bajan foremost. His sincerity is astounding and his integrity top notch. My Acrostic is a collection of some of the phrases he used that thrilled me and made me very proud of him

   

 

Greatly
Blessed Highly Favored Deeply Loved

 

Glorious legacy for our children is our aim

Renew our special relationship and reclaim

Every partnership
to build a better democracy

And a better Barbados this land
of Sun and sea

Together we can uphold each other
and build

Lord you’ve made our people
determined and well skilled

You who have responded with
overwhelming love

 

 

Brought your well wishes and prayed
to our Father above

Little can I return but deep
gratitude at best

Every one of you have made me feel
fully blessed

Seeing your compassion
towards me and my family 

Sharing your prayers and well wishes
for me

Even though I opted to broadcast and
not in live to televise

Didn’t want the portent of
my message
be deceived by your eyes

 

Have occasioned obvious weight loss from medication

I would rather… you… be concerned
about the message than
my manifestation

Got little control
over what will happen to us

How we respond to what happens is easier
and thus

Let me assure you that my family and
I

Yield to the medical teams here and
in New York
to comply

 

Fully cooperating, determined
to battle this illness

All that’s humanly possible is done
to arrest

Verily, fellow citizens we are humbly
recognizing that ultimately

Our future rests in
the hands of the Almighty

Recognizing this truth,
I continue to solicit

Everyone for your intercession and
prayers
and well wishes you submit

Divine Lord said to Paul “..my power
is made perfect in weakness”

 

Dear Lord you are my, strength and
salvation, audibly I confess

Even now I am able
to rejoice in hope

Even now I can be gracious
through faith
to cope

Premier and people in fact all
relationships
in existence

Live times of
closeness and times of distance

You were appreciated in either
circumstance that came

 

Lets hope your
experience has been the same

Our energies must be refocused on
what is best for the island

Verbosities and actions wrapped in
the flag, with better brand 

Earnest prayers we’ll make for my
healing and another to Father above

Dear Father my fondest
wish for Barbadians
is they Unite and Love

 

 

 

 


My friends, I say good morning to my parents every day. I kneel and give God my praise everyday. Eat, drink, bath and lots of mundane things I do everyday too. Reminding and asking others to pray for our Prime Minister is a far more important daily thing I do. I call on you to pray with me and the thousands of others because some things do need your daily attention and this is most certainly one. The following Acrostic poem was inspired by a true life story shared with us by Kim on Facebook

 

He Felt Like God’s Intercom

 

Heart
attack was massive and he was pronounced dead

Emergency
shocks didn’t revive him, he flat lined instead  

 

Forty
minutes had now gone and he started turning blue

Extremities
turned black so all present knew

Life had
past from the body that laid motionless

Though the
lone doctor upon leaving turned back relentless

 

Like he
was drawn by a compelling voice telling his say a prayer

It felt
silly and embarrassing but there was no one to be aware

Knelt and
said “Father..I cry out for this man’s soul”

Excuse his
past, raise him up, give him new control

 

Give him another
chance that that he might know you

One more
shock he begged the returning ER doctor to do

Did and
regular rhythm came back immediately

So to his respiration
and color in his body

 

It was a
miracle and to God be the praise

None of his
colleagues believed prayer heals nowadays

The
blatant truths came years ago when his son got leukemia  

Enquiries
back in 2000 found none sympathetic in the academia  

Reality
has shown us the power of prayer

Call on
the Lord our Savior asked Him to drawer near

Our Prime
Minister needs you to believe because prayers heal

Miracles happen
all around us so please hear this appeal

 

 

 

1My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
 2For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
 3Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
 4So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
 5Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
 6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
 7Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
 8It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

 

Mister Prime Minister The Lord is Here

 

My son, forget not my law; but let
thine

Inner man keep the commandments that
are mine

So shall they add length of days, long
life and peace to thee

Truth you must not forsake nor should
you forsake mercy

Engrave them upon the table of thine
heart

Round thy neck you shall wear them from
the start 

 

People will favor you

Respect and understand you too

It will be the same with the Father up
high

Man and God will favor and understand
if these you’ll apply

Everything now you must

 

Make God’s purpose and trust

In Him with every fabric of your being

Now you must lean not to thine own
understanding

In all thy ways acknowledge the Father

Show Him your praises and after

Trust that He will be there

Encamping around you everywhere

Rely on Him to guide you

 

Trust that He will see you through

He shall direct your paths

Effectively restoring joys and laughs

 

Let not illness cause you to despise

Or be not wise in thine own eyes

Rather understand He does things His
way

Devote you life to the Lord and His
words obey

 

If you can truly trust the Lord and in
Him fear

Sins and evils from these depart and
forever forbear

 

Health to thy navel, and marrow to thy
bones

Earnest prayers and obedience will
realize the unknowns

Rest now Mister Prime Minister The Lord Is Here

Each one of your well-wishers called
and the Lord has drawn near

 

 

If I had the opportunity to sit with the Prime Minister I would tell him of all the ways he made me laughed and all the ways he made me admire him. They were times that he may have been of questionable conduct but that may have been my harsh judgment because he often laughed until he was red like a cherry with the support of many others around 
Jeremiah 33:3 
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

 

Call Unto Me, And I Will Answer Thee

 

Confined
in the courtyard of the guard Jeremiah heard

A second
time it came to him, the Lord’s word

Lord who
made the earth in His wondrous way

Lord who
formed it and established it had these words to say

 

Unto me
you can call and I will answer you

Not of
things known to tell but things great and unsearchable too

Today we
call on the Lord and we will say

Our leader
needs your help to rid his cancer away

 

Many join
in prayer and many

Earnestly
pray at home individually

 

All the
same, we know all can’t get out

Numerous are
ailing, unable to get about

Don’t
diminish your involvement and the part you play

 

It’s
important where ever you are to earnestly pray

 

Where ever
you are call on the Father above

Invite His
mercy upon this one we love

Let Him be
in control, say that we

Lord call
upon you that you will be

 

Allaying the
threat upon our Prime Minister

Negate the
fear of Prostate Cancer

Shush the
worries of his family

Wipe out
this darkness brought on our country

Every man,
woman, girl and boy

Restored
to serenity that they can enjoy

 

The
leadership our Hon. David Thompson brings

His role
in Government, family and many other thing

Eternal
God heal our Prime Minister, your Word says that if we

Earnestly “Call Unto Me And I Will Answer Thee

 

 

 

 

 

The Master’s Hand

Posted: September 25, 2010 in Facebook, In the News, Living With
The new today was that the Prime Minister was feeling better. I am glad that he is in greater comfort and was able to receive calls and visitors. I know how important it is to have visitors and calls that disrupt the otherwise long days of looking around the same room, after a while you know each crack. You see when your mind I still active and the body is weak there is a natural conflict. 

 

The Master’s Hand

 

There is a healer greater than physicians we know

He can remove all maladies and to Him we can go

Earnestly call upon Him that he can draw nigh

 

My God and your God extends His healing hand when He hears our cry

And for those who toss and turn in their sleep

Shushes their fears and dries their tears should they weep

Those afraid and full of doubt

Elevates their hopes and gets disbeliefs out

Restore dear Lord good health to our Prime Minister

Save him from the ravages of this pancreatic cancer

 

Heard the Prime Minister was feeling better today

And I felt better too and more encouraged to pray

Now we can’t stop, our prayers are getting through

Dear friend, The Master’s Hand has been listening to you
