I'm believin'!

Dear Sweet Saints,

on February 27, 2012

Thank you for your prayers both today and everyday. I am so extremely grateful. I am adding an “Amen and amen! Let it be Lord!” to your prayers. I am so full of faith today I feel like I could move a mountain. And because of that I want to ask if anyone has any prayer requests of their own I would be honored to pray for you as well. You can either post it here or send a personal message to me.

I am reminded of a scripture in Romans 8:11 that says “And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.” I believe that my body is completely full of life. I pray death and disappearance to any cancer cell in my body and life abundant to every good cell. In Jesus’ name.

In Romans 10:9 it says, “That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” I believe 100% that this is true!! I have eternal salvation because of my BELIEF that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. And therefore I also want to BELIEVE the very words of Jesus in Mark 16:15-18 that say, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever BELIEVES and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not BELIEVE will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who BELIEVE: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, AND THEY WILL GET WELL.” I’m BELIEVIN’!  I BELIEVE Jesus for my salvation and also for my healing!

I say this all to encourage you that your prayers will be answered and I will be healed. Again, if there is anything I can be praying for you please post it or message it to me and I will be happy to join my prayers to yours and pray in faith for whatever you need. Thanks again for lifting my request up to heaven. I have complete peace about everything and know His presence is right here with me. There really is no better place. May God bless you all back for your sacrifice and prayers. Love and hugs to you all. Lana

    Hi Lana. What a powerful testimony, GOD uses HIS angel “Lana” to give hope to the world.Lana please pray that GOD will provide a break thru in my Job situation. My wife and I believe that GOD will provide me a permanent job and income. He is a faithful GOD and thru HIM all is possible. You “are” healed and I do have a permanent job and income! Glory to GOD! AMEN

    • Lana Elder says:

      Amen Deon! I love your faith and God does too. I love all of Hebrew Chapter 11 but I even like the last verse in Chapter 10 that says, “But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.” Yes, Lord! I pray now for Deon that you would provide a job for him that is a perfect fit for him. One that uses his talents and giftings and is completely satisfying to him. I pray for financial blessings as well. Provide in abundance for him and his wife. Give them the desires of their heart and make all their plans succeed. We will shout for joy when they are victorious. Grant all their requests God. We love you Lord and know you have great plans for Deon and his family. In Jesus name. Amen.

  2. Eddie Erlank says:

    Wonderful that, in these troubled times you are thinking of other who may need support and encouragement. May the Lord Bless you and Heal you. This comes with my most sincere good wishes – and by way of a special prayer on this day when so many around the worls are praying for you.

  3. Becky says:

    I would greatly appreciate your prayers for Patricia Carpenter in Nebraska who is also battling cancer. She tried standing in faith at the beginning, but as the circumstances did not seem to change in the natural, her faith gave out and now she is also battling doubt about God and his love.

    Thank you!!

    • Lana Elder says:

      Yes Becky, I will add my prayers to yours and others for Patricia. Lord, I ask for healing for Patricia. God, heal her heart especially. Show her how much you love her. Help her to know how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ. You died for her sins Lord and I know you want her to live for You! God I know how hard it is to have faith when we don’t have the physical change that we want to see accompany it. We just ask that you would heal her completely and miraculously. Continue to hold her in the palm of Your hand. We ask this all in the name of your son Jesus. Amen. I will keep praying. I would love for you to read Eph 3:14-21 to her. It is so good. I’m praying those words go deep in her heart. Here they are….Ephesians 3:14-21
      “For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

  4. Dwan says:

    As I fast and pray today, along with everyone here, I am believing with all of you that Lana shall be healed in Jesus name! I also pray for all who have cancer and illnesses today including a couple of people I know: Kenny Craig, Tanh Bui and Johnny Osler that they be healed in Jesus name! I pray the following scripture over all of us in faith:
    “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation. (Psalm 91:14-16 NKJV) In this scripture it says twice “I will deliver him”. I pray that Lana and others will be delivered from the cancerous cells that has attacked the body of Christ and plead the precious blood of Jesus over all of your DNA and restore all cells back to health. So as Jesus is at the right hand of the Father free of cancer, sickness, lack, poverty, etc. So are we in this world! I claim it for you Lana and all of us in Jesus name!!!

  5. Cheryl Zacek says:

    My biggest prayer is for salvation for all my extended family. My sister and I are the only ones with faith in Christ. Also, for my husband’s family. He’s the only believer in his family. Thanks so much!

    • Lana Elder says:

      Ok Cheryl, Lord, I pray for Cheryl’s extended family. I pray that you would bring them to know you! I know that you desire that even more than they do. You will is that none would perish. Reveal yourself to them again and again. May they come to know you as Savior and Lord soon. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

  6. Jan says:

    Your faith is so inspiring. Please pray for my cousin Elaine. She has renal cell carcanoma stage 4 and my pastor’s wife/friend Ginger. Her breast cancer is in her brain and throughout her body. She has 18 and 15 year old daughters. She asked God to let her live to see them grown, seven years ago. My brother, David, has conjunctive basal cell carcanoma in his eye. Please pray for God’s healing. I am not sure my brother is a believer. Please pray that God will be glorified in all things. I am praying for you and your family.

    • Lana Elder says:

      I will pray Jan. Father, we thank you in everything. We thank you for cancer because through it we can draw closer to you. We know you are a God who cares about us and what we are going through. We also know you are the God that heals. And I pray right now for Elaine, Ginger and David. I pray you would heal their bodies of the cancer that is in them. I ask that the cancer cells would die and be replaced by healthy normal cells. That the cancer would be exposed to the light of your truth and that darkness would flee. Your word says that by your wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5). I believe you were wounded for both our sins and our diseases and I ask that you would heal Elaine, Ginger and David. Reveal yourself in undeniable ways to David that he would have to acknowledge you as his Lord and Savior. Hear our prayers and answer them. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

  7. Tim Taylor says:

    Dear Lana,

    I am praying for you today. Every time a read a post, I say a prayer for you. May God heal your body of this cancer and grant to you the Peace that passes all understanding. I pray these prayers for you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer! May God continue to bless you and your beautiful family.

  8. Kerstin says:

    Dear Lana,

    I’m praying here in Germany for you. A sister of my church posted me about your desease. Me, also I live with this deseasenow for three years.
    And GOD made a blessing out of all this.
    You are such a wonderful woman with a very beautiful family. And you trust in our God.

    HE will never, never, never leave you, Lana! Like in Josua 1, 5:

    No-one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.

    One thing, which is helpful for me – sometimes in weak moments – is: write this bible-vers (or your favourite encouraging vers) on a piece of paper – and then put it on the floor and then stand with your feet on it – on the holy WORD of GOD! And proclaim it! — This gives new power and hope to me:

    “Here is what I am commanding you to do. Be strong and brave. Do not be terrified. Do not lose hope. I am the Lord your God. I will be with you everywhere you go.” Jos. 1, 9

    Father in heaven – I come to you in Jesus’ name. And I thank you for your wonderfull daughter Lana – oh Lord, you love her so much! She is your child, your princess and I thank you for her salvation! Thank you, Jesus, you are so beautiful! You are the Lord! You are holy and we praise you! I cry to you, Father, for my sister Lana – take away from her every cancer cell – which has NO right to manifestate in her body, because she is under your protection. So, we all together, all the believers, who are praying for her command to these cells, we command to this attack at her life – LEAVE HER BODY in the holy name of JESUS!!!! Father, we thank you! Amen.

    • Lana Elder says:

      Dear Kirsten, thank you for writing and praying! Your words are very encouraging and I am going to try “standing” on the word also! 🙂 I want to pray for you too. Lord thank you for my sister Kirsten and her great faith in You! I ask that you heal her of this disease as well. Remove every cancerous cell and replace them with perfectly healthy ones. Heal and restore her body to the way you created it to be. Give her life abundant. Bless her all the days of her life and continue to allow her to be a blessing to others. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. Thanks again Kirsten!

  10. Sandra says:

    I am sitting here in Hong Kong airport waiting for a flight to Bangkok and thought I would check your developments – Lana your courage and faith take my breath away. I said my prayers for you on the plane yesterday and I keep praying although I am not as familiar with the bible as the other folks! When my holiday is over I am faced with some tests but you have helped me already by your stong committment to God. As we say in the South Wales valleys (UK) “fight the good fight with all thy might”. God Bless and keep you safe.

    • Lana Elder says:

      Thank you for praying for me Sandra and I’m glad I could help you. I will pray for your tests too. Lord, thank you for Sandra’s life. I thank you that she knows You and You know her so completely. You know everything that is going on in her life and her body. God, I ask that You would be with her as she goes through her tests. Let anything that is in the dark be brought into the light so that something can be done about it. We ask for your truth to be revealed and wisdom for Sandra if anything else needs to be done. In Jesus name I pray. Amen. I will keep you on my prayer list Sandra. I always find it helpful to memorize scripture. There’s a list of the top 100 scriptures on website. Maybe you could find one that really speaks to your situation and try to memorize it. Hope it helps. Love, Lana

  12. Susan says:

    God is so amazing and so powerful! Blessed be the name of the LORD!
    Jeremiah 17:14 is so simple and yet says it all:
    Heal me, O LORD and I will be healed;
    Save me and I will be saved,
    for you are the one I praise.

  13. Noelle Lawson says:

    I pray for God’s healing and favour to be poured out on your body. I ask that He remove all traces of the nasty cancer from your otherwise healthy botry and we will be careful to give Him all of the praise, glory and honor. “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”2 Cor. 4:17

  14. Sheri says:

    Continuing to lift you and your family in prayer. The Lord spoke this scripture to me this morning as I was reading your update.
    Isaiah 43:18-19 (NIV)
    18 “Forget the former things;
    do not dwell on the past.
    19 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
    I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland

    May you continue to feel His peace, and presence in your life. I stand with you and your family. Complete healing is already done through Jesus! Amen.

    You asked if any of us had prayer requests. Please keep my business, Lighthouse Hardware, in prayer for a financial breakthrough. God called me here so I believe He has a great plan regardless of the circumstances.

    God’s love, peace, joy and abounding grace be with you always,

  15. Liezl says:

    Hi Lana, what a privilege it is to look at your progress in the name of our wonderful Father! It’s lifting my spirits also! Thank you so much for all of your encouragement and thank you that you are still thinking of everyone else in your situation. Every request made to the Lord is important to Him! So, I’m sending you my prayer request in a very humble way, because I already gave it to Him. The reason for asking people to pray with me is that it’s said in Matthew 18v19 “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.” In 2010 we lost our baby at 21weeks of pregnancy. We went through a lot of tests, praying and hoping. I do believe that He will come through for us. Thank you and God bless
