Even if you don’t believe in the power of prayer

This is still worth doing.

We invite everyone to please come join us to petition God for Chris’ life. Please join us – sign up to pray and fast for 24hrs… morning – morning on one chosen day of the week.

If you don’t know the Champion families story… please go to… http://www.championclan.blogspot.com

In short… John Champion (Husband/Father) in February pasted away from Brain Cancer after a over 2yr battle. 20yr old Chris Champion has also battled cancer over the last 2yrs in his leg and now it has spread to his lungs and brain. He is in a fight for his life and undergoing current Cyber Knife treatments to stop the lesions in his brain.

If you would like to join our Relay for Life team on Saturday, May 2nd… to support the Champions & Chris, please contact Kristina Ruch on FB or e-mail her @ Kris.Ruch@gmail.com.

A “Call” to Fasting and Prayer:
(From The Way Fellowship – MyChurch page)
http://www.mychurch.org/thewayfellowship

As a family, we feel that God is moving us into a season of continual fasting and prayer over Chris Champion. The recent news has not be the most encouraging, however, we will continue to stand as a united body and intercede for our brother, Chris, and our sister, Dawn. We know that God alone is in control and He alone determines the outcome of our lives.

“Though the LORD is great, He cares for the humble, but He keeps his distance from the proud. Though I am surrounded by troubles, You will preserve me against the anger of my enemies. You will clench your fist against my angry enemies! Your power will save me. The LORD will work out His plans for my life– for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for You made me.” – Psalm 138:6-8

Here’s the goal… We want to cover Chris w/prayer and fasting around the clock until Jesus directs us otherwise. We desire to see a different family in the church, take a day and fast and pray together (this is similar to the way we provide meals to families in our church).

Please post below to let us know which day you will be taking. If you would like to take the same day every week, please feel free to do so.

*(Facebook – Please respond to invitation with what day of the week you would like to sign up for)

We MUST rally around each other in prayer, through the Holy Spirit and by the work of Jesus, in order to help see our brother through.

“We are in this fight together. You have seen me suffer for him in the past, and you know that I am still in the midst of this great struggle.” Philippians 1:30

We will fast and pray on Wednesday.

Chris is the brother of my best friend. They both lost their father to cancer in February. Let’s not have another member of his family die to this terrible condition. Please have Chris in your thoughts even if you don’t believe in prayer, and if you can – fast 1 day in your life – it might make the difference in his. Thanks.
