Urgent Prayer for Lori

I'm asking all my followers to pray for my cousin Lori Harmon. I have told her story several times &'s very urgent that we pray. Just to catch a few of you up here are the basics...
Lori was diagnosed with melanoma cancer last October & given 4 to 6 months.
She has taken 12 rounds of chemo & a year later she is still here with us! PTL!!
Lori's husband passed away 2 years ago from Cancer
Lori has 3 children...Austin 16, Jacob 18 & Lacy 21. 
Last Wednesday Lori started Radiation for her bone cancer & was taken to the hospital for dehydration & has not been able to go home since because she can not walk due to the extreme pain in her legs. 

Today...the doctors came in & told her that the cancer has spread all over her body. It's doubling in size each day. could be a week or less at this point. She is able to talk & is in good spirits...but her body will begin shutting down. If you have ever watched someone die from this awful know this road is not an easy one. I have to tell you....I have had several conversations with God about this & how I do not think it is fair...AT ALL that these kids will lose both their mom & dad to cancer at such a young age. My flesh is wrestling with this to put it plainly. Then I hear Him telling me that He is in control of this situation & I need to just lay it at His feet. Trust in Him...Our God & King...Healer...Ruler of Heaven & Earth...Redeemer...Master...Savior. I know Lori is ready to see Jesus. I know she loves Him & is covered in with the blood of Jesus & that gives us all a peace that passes all understanding in His Name!

Pray for Healing...Lori needs a miracle. Pray for her children...that no matter what happens they will continue to Glorify God in their lives. I know each of you will pray for her.

Also...if you have any verses or words of encouragement that I can pass on to her children or to Lori I would love that. Thank you precious friends in Christ. I love you all!


  1. She has been in our prayers constantly and will continue to be. Praying for a miracle again!

  2. With a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes, know that we are praying for Lori, her kids, and all of you! That is so hard!

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us. Romans 8: 18

    Also thinking of Romans 5: 1_5

    Much love and prayers to you all!

  3. So glad I stopped by today... I will definitely keep her in my prayers. Praying already for a heavenly touch!!!
    Much love to you too, as you deal with the heaviness.

  4. I've been praying and begging God to work a miracle. I know you can't wait to get back and be with her, prayers for YOU and your family too:)

  5. my heart just hurts for Lori and her children. i am so sorry that she is having to go through this, but i know that God is Sovereign and that He will be there to comfort her and give her peace.

    "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away" (Revelation 21: 4)

  6. Hi, just came across your blog. I would say by accident, but I truely believe it wasn't by accident. I seen the request for prayer. As I stuggle with some issues right now in my own life,family,and with God. They seem so less in important after reading this. I will uplift Lori and her children in prayer. God is still a miracle working God. He is always on time.


  7. Oh Steph, I am so sorry!! I have been so wrapped up with my aunt passing that I haven't even been by to catch up with you!! We are all praying for Lori and her kids! That is a horrible thing to watch and have to deal with!! Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

    Love you!!

  8. I am so sad to hear this. What young ages. I lost my grandmother to cancer when I was 18 and it was hard. I cannot imagine losing both parents. I am praying for those children.

    Sin is the result of Satan, not God. I think God is going to do BIG things in those kids life. The trials are going to make them STRONG. A great adversary to Satan. They can make such an impact for Christ in this world. I know it.

    Blessings to you for supporting and loving them.
