Don't Stop Praying

Jeremiah 17:14
Jeremiah 17:14

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;

Save me, and I shall be saved,

For You are my praise.

Jeremiah 17:14


I got my first migraine headache when I was 20 years old. Over the years got progressively worse. To the point of spending days in bed. Many doctors later and lots of different meds, they found a combination to help me to be functional. A monthly injection, that was extremely painful and pills, with some pretty awful side effects. (see Make It Stop post for the full story.)


I started a prayer journal in 2021. If you don't have one, I encourage you to start one. It's encouraging to look back at all the answered prayers, knowing that God is faithful and hears the cries of our hearts.


On 2/23/21 I wrote in my prayer book:


Lord, I pray that I am healed of my migraines and all side effects.

Thank you Lord for healing me of my migraines and ALL side effects 6:30 am.


I continued to thank Him every time I read through this journal, which was almost daily. I had faith that my healing would come. After all:


The Lord is far from the wicked, But He hears the prayer of the righteous. Proverbs 15:29


Six months ago we had a guest speaker come to church, Dr. Marylin Neubauer. She has the gift of healing, so I had her pray for me. Honestly, I have been prayed for many times in the past. I remember looking at her and saying,


"I can't do this anymore."


This was not the first time I uttered these words. God always showed up and got me through.


A few days after I had Dr. Neubauer pray for me, was time to take my monthly injection, which brought tears to my eyes. I told Rich (my husband) "This shot is killing me." I prayed about it and stopped taking my meds, that was in August 2023.


And....


I have been 6 months migraine free!


I praise God that He is good in everything! He was with me over the past 29 years headaches. He heard every prayer. He saw every tear I cried in pain. He was with me through it all! In His perfect timing, what I prayed for in faith, I experienced in my physical body.


If you find yourself praying and crying out to God for healing; physical, mental, or emotional, know that God is listening and He is with you. He sees you, He hears you, and He cares for you. Cling to Him through everything, even when you are at your "I can't do this anymore," moment. Always remember the words Jesus said to Paul 2 Corinthians 12:9


"My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness."


I was so blessed; this song came on the radio as I was writing this; God is so, so good!


Don't Stop Praying, by Matthew West


What's your impossible? Your "I need a miracle"

What's got you barely hanging by a single thread?

What looks so hopeless now? What weighs down your heart with doubt?

You beg for a breakthrough, but no sign of breakthrough yet

When you've cried, and you've cried 'til your tears run dry


The answer won't come, and you don't know why

And you wonder if you can bow your head even one more time


Don't stop praying

Don't stop calling on Jesus' name

Keep on pounding on Heaven's door

And let your knees wear out the floor

Don't stop believing

'Cause mountains move with just a little faith


And your Father's heard every single word you're saying

So, don't stop praying


He's close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit

The Alpha and Omega knows how your story ends

When you've cried, and you've cried 'til your tears run dry


The answer won't come, and you don't know why

And you wonder if you can bow your head even one more time

Oh, do it one more time

And don't stop praying


Don't stop calling on Jesus' name

Keep on pounding on Heaven's door

And let your knees wear out the floor

Don't stop believing

'Cause mountains move with just a little faith

And your Father's heard every single word you're saying


So, don't stop praying

Oh-oh

(Don't stop, don't stop praying) oh, don't stop praying

(Don't stop, don't stop praying)

Oh-oh

Don't stop praying for the prodigal

Don't stop praying for the miracle

Hallelujah, hallelujah, and amen

Don't stop praying that addictions end

Don't stop praying for deliverance


Hallelujah, hallelujah, and amen

Oh, don't stop praying for the sickness healed

Don't stop praying for His power revealed

Hallelujah, hallelujah, and amen


No, don't stop praying for the Kingdom come

Don't stop praying that His will be done


Hallelujah, hallelujah, and amen

Don't stop praying

Don't stop calling on Jesus' name

Keep on pounding on Heaven's door

Let your knees wear out the floor

Don't stop believing

'Cause mountains move with just a little faith

And your Father's heard every single word you're saying

So, don't stop praying

oh, don't stop praying


(Don't stop, don't stop praying) hey, don't you give up now

No, don't stop praying
