500 Prayers for Luke - Will you Pray?


Our friends son Luke, who will soon be 7 years old, was just recently diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. I was talking with Luke's Aunt the other day and she told me a story about how someone asked him what he wanted. He replied with two answers. He said that he wanted " 500 prayers." Then he said that "before he left the hospital he wanted a needle so that he could give every doctor a shot." Well, I don't think there's much we can do about the shots, but we can give him 500 prayers.

So here is the idea I have. If you already have been, or you will commit to praying for Luke and would like to be a part of his 500 prayers just leave a comment with your name, the state you live in and your prayer for Luke.

I am doing both of the following with all the comments:
1. Put your name on a blue star (Luke's favorite color is blue) and taking them to Luke's hospital room and hanging them on the wall so that Luke will have a visual reminder each day that he has his 500 prayers.
2. I am making a booklet for Luke with all of the names and prayers and bringing it to him to have in his room as a tangible reminder of his 500 prayers.

If you are a local...SHHHHH...don't tell Steve and Vikki. I'd like it to be a surprise. Spread the word! I'd like to get these to Luke as quickly as possible so that he can see just how many people are praying for him.

    When I used to work Peds, the kids decorated thier rooms all the time. If it were me, I wouldn't even ask. I would just go in there and do it with a big banner saying what all the names are. Those kind of things are a great witness to hospital employees. I would ask for forgiveness not permission :-)

  4. i pray for 'peace that surpasses all understanding' and complete healing in the name of Jesus.


  5. Luke,
    My prayer is that when you are older you will be able to look back on this time and see how God used YOU to bring 100's and 100's of people closer to Him and closer to eachother. We love you bud!!

    "Unto Thee I cry, my Savior.
    Don't be silent long, O' my Lord.

    When I lift my hands to Thee.
    Be my hiding place in times of trouble.
    Compass me about with songs of deliverance.

    "Blessed are You Lord, my Savior.
    My heart will trust in you, my strength.
    My soul will rise again, rejoicing,
    And I will praise Your name, my God.

  40. Dear Luke!
    I have not stopped thinking about you since I first heard you were in the hospital! Let me just tell you...our God is a God of miracles. He is BIGGER than any disease and bigger than ANY doctor! You see, my son was hospitalized last year, at nearly this exact time with an enlarged mass in his abdomen. There was talk of it being a tumor. We were eventually sent home and were told to come back in 2 weeks to see the "progress" of this unknown mass. So....after a long two week wait, we came back for more testing and ultrasounds and can you believe it....the mass was completely GONE! ONLY GOD! My Elijah was healed because people prayed and BELIEVED in our mighty GOD!!
    God can heal you too...and we are praying for you!! Hang in there! I know the needles hurt, but you are going to have one amazing testimony!!
    LOVE...Becky, Tony, Elijah, Amelia, and Micah Nelson
    Vancouver WA

  41. Our Loving Father and Creator,
    We pray for Strength and Joy for Luke and his family as he endures through this illness and all the needles and frustration and pain that comes with it. We ask that you will give him and his family Courage, Joy and Hope that will shine like a beacon to those around him. Encourage him, Oh God, hold him in Your lap -- put your arms around his parents and cradle them with Your Strength and Love. We know you love Luke and his parents so much more than anyone can comprehend. We give thanks for Your Power and Love and for Your ability to do Miracles. These Psalms are our prayers:

    Psalm 18: 1-2
    I love you, O LORD, my strength.
    2 The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
    my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge.
    He is my shield and the horn [a] of my salvation, my stronghold.

    Psalm 136: 1-9; 23-26 (Message)

    1-3 Thank God! He deserves your thanks. His love never quits.
    Thank the God of all gods,
    His love never quits.
    Thank the Lord of all lords.
    His love never quits.

    4-22 Thank the miracle-working God,
    His love never quits.
    The God whose skill formed the cosmos,
    His love never quits.
    The God who laid out earth on ocean foundations,
    His love never quits.
    The God who filled the skies with light,
    His love never quits.
    The sun to watch over the day,
    His love never quits.
    Moon and stars as guardians of the night,
    His love never quits.

    23-26 God remembered us when we were down,
    His love never quits.
    Rescued us from the trampling boot,
    His love never quits.
    Takes care of everyone in time of need.
    His love never quits.
    Thank God, who did it all!
    His love never quits!

  86. This is a beautiful (my favorite) prayer song (sung in Hebrew, but translated here for you), sung at every service, after which the congregation is given the chance to say out loud the names of those who are in need of healing. Luke will now be one of the names I speak!

    Lord, our Great Physician,
    We pray for your son Luke, that he would feel the power of your people praying for him. That when he begins to feel fearful, you would make yourself known to him. That he would feel your powerful love for him, that the warmth of your love would allow him to feel an overwhelming sense of peace. "Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world."
    God you live in Luke's heart, may all that come in to contact with him see your light and may his family be comforted by that very same blessing of seeing your greatness being lived through this amazing young man.


  118. Luke my prayer for you is complete healing from the Lord. That you will be a light shining for Him, for all the nurses and doctors to see. What a blessing you are to your parents. And I pray for strength and wisdom and guidance for them. My praise is that you are surrounded by so many loved ones and you have an army of people praying for you.

    We love you,

  120. Luke, I do not know you or your family but this was sent to me by a friend. I am blessed to have the opportunity to say a prayer for you. My Family and I will keep you in our prayers every night. So now you have 5 more!
    I would like to tell you a story.
    Sometimes you can spend your whole life dreaming of going to disney world. You imagine what every ride will be like. You know what you will say to the disney characters when you get there. You know this is going to be the best experience of your life. But When you get off the plane you realize you did not go to disney at all. You ended up in six flags. I know, this is terrible! It is not what you dreamed of at all. Then you realize, Six Flags has a lot of wonderful things to offer you. No, it is not at all the same as Disney World. But there are still some wild rides and great people to meet. You still have a blast. It is not the same trip you wanted or planned for but it is the trip God wanted you to take. He made it special for you.

  121. Luke,
    My family and I wil ask the Lord daily for your healing as well for strength to fight this battle and peace in knowing that you are firmly in his hands.

  122. Luke,
    We will be praying for you and your family and that you will feel God's presence as he holds you all close during this time.
