Prayer Request for Jessica

Prayer Request for Jessica

  |   From Merle & Theresa   |   221 Comments

“Dear fans and friends, Merle and I have a friend”

Jessica Easley

Jessica Easley – From Jessica’s Website

“…a very special friend. Her name is Jessica Easley. She is 10 years old. Jessica has terminal bone cancer. She recently had her leg amputated. Her doctors have sent her home because they say there is no more that they can do . They have given her 2 to 3 weeks to live.  SHE NEED ALL OF OUR PRAYERS OF HEALING! “THAT IF IT BE GOD’S WILL” JESSICA CAN BE HEALED COMPLETELY and  go on to  live her life fully and healthy like  she was meant to.

So I post this letter in  total faith that together we can ask Jesus to touch Jessica Easley and make her whole again. We ask of this healing in Jesus name.”

Sincerely,
Theresa Haggard

“By my stripes you are healed”Isaiah 53:5 “

    May god richly bless you for your phone call to Jessica. When I visited her Friday evening they told me you were going to call her. Our God is an amazing God. Your kindenss to Jessica has touched my heart as I see all the prayers being prayed on her behalf. She is a very sweet girl. I have learned so much from and through her and her family.

    I pray to the Creator that he will look over Jessica – I am Native American (Akwesasne Mohawk) and i will burn some sacred tobacco and ask the Grandfather spirits to watch over her and if it is the will of The Great Mystery to take care of her. Niawen

    Someone once told me, when you look into the eyes of a child you can see God.
    May god bless you Jessica.

  • Haggard fan in Ireland | Sep 10, 2009 at 2:55 pm

    All things work for good to them that love the Lord. Its hard to understand that, but its true. God does have his purpose in allowing this illness, a purpose that we may never understand this side of eternity. But Jesus is the name we honour and Jesus is the name we praise, and in our Lords name we pray healing. for Jessica.. If its the Lords will, then it will hapen.

    My thoughtd and prayers are with you Jessica, and have been with Merle too. I will be praying for you.
    Thank you Theresa for Posting.

    All our love.

    God bless.

  • Kevin Sumpter | Sep 10, 2009 at 12:15 pm

  • Gary Keck | Sep 10, 2009 at 11:48 am

    Theresa, thank you for posting this and bringing it to our attention. I am praying for you Jessica, like so many others, and we know that prayer is a very powerful thing. Keep your spirits up!

  • Bill Bentley | Sep 10, 2009 at 10:27 am

    My God take care of Jessica, and show her His love and blessings and give this wonderful girl special healing.
    Amen.

  • Jeff Siemon | Sep 10, 2009 at 9:36 am

    Our Father, you hold the world in your hand. You are powerful and mighty and spoke the world into existence. Nothing in all the world or the heavens above can resist your will. Therefore, Lord, we bring little Jessica before your heavenly throne. Our desire is that you heal her, Lord, and demonstrate your power and glory in the midst of it. But we also know, Father, that we await a time of a recreation of a new heaven and a new earth — a time in which sin and evil will be no more and when the creation will be restored to its original intent. And we know, Lord, that this is the future hope of all who have trusted in the Lamb Who was slain for the sins of the world, and, most specifically, for our sin. Therefore, Lord, we know an “ultimate healing” awaits Jessica on the other side but, if it be your will, might You arrest her cancer also in this life, Lord. For we pray this in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

  • Monique, Wilseyville,CA | Sep 10, 2009 at 8:55 am

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    I pray that your hand would be on Jessica. Only you know what’s best for us in every situation. I pray that you would heal her from this cancer that is destroying her body and make her whole again. I pray for her family to trust you though this difficult time. Please bring peace and comfort to them. Your Word says you will never leave us or forsake us. Where 2 or more gather together in Your name, YOU are there. Thank you Lord for your forgiveness and unconditional love. AMEN!

  • Rickey | Sep 10, 2009 at 8:40 am

    In the name of the Father,Son and Holy Sprit I pray that God will remove all sickness from this child and make her as new. Amen

  • Rick | Sep 10, 2009 at 8:34 am

    UPDATE: I received an email from Teresa, Jessica’s Mother and was able to post more information about Jessica – thanks Teresa.

    Jessica, may Gods healing overcome bone cancer in the name of Jesus. God bless you Jessica, and your family.

    If anybody can beat this, Jessica can! I work on the cancer unit at ACH and have had the pleasure of knowing Jessica and her family since she was originally diagnosed. She is a fighter and a believer, so I truly believe she is wrapped in the comfort of God’s arms and she will be ok, no matter what! We love you Jessica!

  • Nick K | Sep 10, 2009 at 4:10 am

    God’s almighty love is with you little Jessica.

  • Deanna Wrinkle | Sep 9, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    I stopped by to see Jessica last Saturday, and she was so excited to tell me how she had talked to Merle Haggard! She was posing to have her picture made with an autographed photo of him. It was so sweet, just like Jessica. She is the sweetest child who has fought this cancer over 3 years, and has done so with a smile on her face and a never ending faith in God. I know the doctors say there is nothing that can be done, that she will not survive.. but I also know God is much bigger than any cancer, and if it’s His will that she is healed, He will grant her a miracle and the cancer will be gone. Praying for a miracle. OUR GOD IS ABLE!

  • GREGG | Sep 9, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    HEAVENLY FATHER,LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, We cast this cancer out of Jessica in the name of YOU’RE SON JESUS CHRIST. We believe from YOU’RE WORD that YOU’RE CHILD IS HEALED. WE THANK YOU FATHER GOD IN THE NAME OF THE ANNOITED ONE JESUS THE CHRIST.

  • Sherrie T | Sep 9, 2009 at 6:03 pm

  • Jackie Burckhard | Sep 9, 2009 at 3:53 pm

    As one who has spent many hours with loved ones at The City Of Hope (Duarte Ca.) I do pray to the Lord for his special healing powers to heal all his sick children, who have been stricken with this terrible disease. I will add little Jessica in my prayers, I also prayed daily for Merle for I lost my husband to Lung cancer, we did have 46 beautiful years together. Merle’s songs have always lifted my spirits.
    God Bless you, Theresa and Merle.

  • scott wikle | Sep 8, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Jessica will be in the prayers of myself and my family. It is so sad to hear about this, especially someone so young. But as we all know, there is a higher power and with prayers she will make it through this.

    I would also like to extend my prayers and thoughts to Bobby Wayne. Bobby was a “Stranger” for many years. He is in a Texas hospital with aggressive Leukemia and not doing well.
    I know we will all keep praying for both Jessica and Bobby

  • TC | Sep 8, 2009 at 6:01 pm

    This is a wonderful opportunity for the body of Christ to Pray for Complete Healing. We must have Faith, Believe and Speak Out with our mouths what we want for Jessica. Meaning, God in the name of Jesus, I ask that you restore Jessica to Godly Wholeness. I cast you out spirit of cancer in the Name of Jesus Christ Lord and Savor. You said Believe and you shall receive, ask and it shall be given to you pressed with measure. Lord I THANK YOU FOR HEALING JESSICA AND I THANK YOU, THAT YOU ARE MERCIFUL, THAT JESSICA IS YOUR CHILD. I ASK HOLY SPIRIT AND HEAVENLY ANGLES TO PROTECT JESSICA AND HER FAMILY. IN JESUS NAME AMEN.
