Will you please fast for me?

Many of us are fasting this weekend because of General Conference next week. If you are, would you mind adding me to your list of purposes for your fast? Maybe it’s not right for me to ask for it myself, but I am. I know it helps; I know God stands ready to bless me. He has promised me healing, and I’ll get it at some point. I’m going back to the doctor the next week, and I would really like to get an accurate diagnosis. Would you fast for that for me? Thank you so much.

I had a dream this week that’s got to mean something significant. In my dream, I had one of my “attacks,” and it got so bad that I had Roger take me to the hospital. After lots more contractions (and my attacks really do feel like contractions, only in my chest instead of in my uterus) at the hospital, I suddenly delivered a baby! Immediately I felt lots better. On the way home from the hospital, with the new baby in a carseat, I said to Roger, “The only think I can’t figure out is why I was so skinny the whole time.”

So, what does it mean? I asked Roger if it meant that if I have another baby I’ll get all better. (More than one person has suggested that, by the way.) He said, “No, it means that we’ll get the right diagnosis, find the correct cure, and it will be a quick and final healing like being delivered.” Sounds good to me.

Of course I will.

I'll be honored to fast for you.

I can't really fast since I'm nursing a baby, but I'll pray for you. I think it will count even though we haven't actually met!

Wow.

I am breathless with gratitude for you people. Thank you so much. (And Laura! Praying for a stranger! Thank you so much. I actually consider it fasting when you have a fasting attitude during a "fast," though you can't skip food. Thank you.)

I fasted too. I'll be praying for you and the doctor this week!

I fasted for you, even though you have no idea who I am. I linked here through Segullah and I read your blog occasionally.

I hope you feel better and find answers.

Thanks, Melinda! My doctor's appointment is tomorrow. I feel like the Lord will bless me, with all of you fantastic people fasting and praying for me. Thanks so much.
