Nix & I have been humbled by the response to our Blog published one week ago.  Over 5,000 hits in the first three days.  Strangers to us taking the time to pray, fast and write to us with powerful words backed up with scripture.  Thank you is inadequate.

The words to a Martin Smith song "Waiting Here For You" (http://martinsmith.tv/en/store/product-detail/1274) have been on a constant loop in my head for months.  The first two lines are my anthem.

If faith can move the mountains
Let the mountains move
We come with expectation
Waiting here for you, I’m waiting here for you

You’re the Lord of all creation
And still you know my heart
The Author of Salvation
You’ve loved us from the start

CHORUS
Waiting here for You
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Alleluia

You are everything You’ve promised
Your faithfulness is true
And we're desperate for Your presence
All we need is You

CHORUS

Singing Alleluia
Alleluia, singing alleluia, alleluia

CHORUS

Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
We're singing Alleluia

I'm singing Alleluia
Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Alleluia
Singing Alleluia

This is a call to prayer.  We have a mighty Father, the only one who can save. We have Jesus, who gave His blood to heal us.  We have the Holy Spirit, who is with us.  
Despite the fact the doctors say they can do no more, we are full of hope that Nix can still be healed of cancer.
The prayer is simple, for the power of the Holy Spirit, the blood of Jesus and the eternal love of the Father to destroy every cancerous and pre-cancerous cell in Nix's body now.  
For the full and complete restoration of Nix's body, in this lifetime.  For the cancer to wither and die, for it's power to be disarmed.
For this illegal occupation to cease immediately and for the rightful landlord to reclaim what is His, and His alone.


God, you did everything you promised, and I'm thanking you with all my heart. You pulled me from the brink of death, my feet from the cliff-edge of doom. Now I stroll at leisure with God in the sunlit fields of life.  Psalm 56 12-13


Andy & Nix ask that you, one: join us in this prayer and two: forward the Blog onto any like minded person.  To people in your family, your friends, pastorate, home group, cell, church, The Royal Albert Hall.  We have a sense that the prayers of 10,000 will tip the scale and Nix's healing will come.  

"10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)"

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

You're rich in love, and You're slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

Jesus, I'll worship Your holy name
Lord, I'll worship Your holy name

Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I'll worship Your holy name
I'll worship Your holy name

Matt Redman
