I Prayed have prayed
Lord, help us speak up and challenge policies that cause harm to ourselves and our family. Give us Your wisdom and the boldness of being led by the Spirit.

I hate confrontation.  It is not how I wanted the day to go. But it confronted me and left me no choice.

My daughter and I arrived at a local hospital for a test that had been postponed since early March, due to COVID19.

The day for answers had finally arrived.

Looking around as we pulled into the parking lot, I knew something wasn’t quite right. There were vehicles everywhere full of people…waiting.

“Bre, don’t panic,” I gently said as I looked around and summed up the situation. “They may not allow me in.”

Glancing around nervously, I turned off my vehicle and got out.  Breanne took a deep breath, slid her purse on her shoulder and opened her door.  I silently prayed under my breath, not knowing how this would go.  Our eyes met as we began the walk to the door. The hospital door slid open, my daughter looked over at me, visibly shaken.

The nurse who greeted us put her hand up to stop us.  “Do you have an appointment?” She asked Breanne.  Before my daughter could answer, the nurse turned to me and sharply repeated her question. “Do you have an appointment?”

“No,” I responded.  “I am with her.”  Breanne repeated what she was told, that I could come with her.  “I don’t care what you were told, she is not going in with you.” The nurse said, as she folded her arms across her chest.

My daughter turned to me with wide eyes that spoke volumes.  “Bre, if at any time you become uncomfortable, just come out,” I said, as I tried to reassure her.

Breanne started to take a step forward, hesitated for a moment and turned back to me.  I knew she was trying to decide if she could go through with the procedure alone.  Had the nurse been kind, it may have been a different story, but she was cold and rude.

My daughter battles anxiety.  Knowing this, she had called the day before and secured arrangements with the head nurse for me to accompany her.  It was the only way she had enough peace to move forward with the needed procedure.

After Bre walked inside, my heart dropped as I walked back to my vehicle where I sat down and quickly grabbed my phone to call a friend to help me pray for Breanne.

“How will we ever stop this?” I began after I explained the situation, still trembling from the frustration of the encounter.

My friend, Karen’s answer, startled me for a moment.  “It won’t stop unless we stand up and demand answers.”

She then began to encourage me with a list of steps to take. “Kim, go back in there and get those answers.  Start with the nurse at the door.  Get her name and contact information. Then get the names of where this rule is coming from.”

She cautioned me to remain calm and at peace, but to not give up until I had answers.

I took a deep breath and prayed.  The prayer the disciples prayed after they were persecuted for preaching the word of God came to mind. They prayed for boldness in a time of crisis.

I silently prayed the same prayer; “Lord, grant me boldness to speak up for my daughter.”

I love how the Passion Translation says it, “So now, Lord, listen to their threats to harm us. Empower us, as your servants, to speak the word of God freely and courageously.” (Acts 4:29)

I knew the hospital’s action, which kept me outside, was harming my daughter mentally and physically. I looked around at the full parking lot as other family or friends were anxiously waiting in their cars like me, separated from their loved one who was forced to endure their procedure alone.

I took a deep breath, got out of the car walked back to the door.  “Can I help you?” the nurse barked as I opened the door.

“May I have your name please and your job title?” I asked as politely as I could. She reluctantly gave me her name and position.  I wrote it down without a word.

Once again, I explained that I wanted answers as to why we were told one thing, but now it seemed everything had changed.  “I would like to speak to someone who can tell me why,” I finished. The nurse supplied me with a few names, and informed me that the guidelines were changing daily.  Wanting rid of me, she promptly handed me a flyer that she said would explain everything.

By this time, I could see the curious looks of the other people in the parking lot watching me from their cars. I’m sure they were wondering what in the world I was doing as I went back and forth from the hospital lobby to my vehicle, writing down notes.

Back in my car, I made several phone calls. Eventually I connected with the head of the department my daughter was in.  She was wonderful. I explained the situation and asked her for answers as to why family were not allowed in with their loved ones when we had been told we could.  I explained to her that I talked with several of the personnel who could not give me answers, neither were they kind.

“Ms. Potter, are you still in the parking lot?” she asked.  “Yes, ma’am, I am.”  She then said the words I had fought to hear… “I am coming out to get you. You can come in.”

As I entered the waiting room, I looked around at the people all alone.  Fear and confusion was all I could see. I said to the head of that department, “I don’t understand this!  It is not right for these people to be enduring this alone.”  She quietly replied, “Most of us agree with you.”

What I discovered from this frustrating episode is this:

  1. No one is asking questions.
  2. Everyone at the facility was simply abiding by these new ‘guidelines’ that change on a daily basis.

This same scenario is happening all across our nation as we politely comply. Yet this goes beyond just the refusal to allow us to be with our loved ones. Officials over the medical community (I’m not referring to doctors and nurses, but licensing boards, CDC, etc.) are also now mandating that medicine and/or procedures be withheld if compliance to their manipulation is not strictly adhered to. This is wrong.

So why is no one questioning these outrageous restrictions?

I thought of the dozens of people in the parking lot compliantly waiting in their cars. They could have made the same demand as I and been allowed to sit in the waiting room with their loved one. But they didn’t.

I can’t help but think about the frog in the pot, put into cold water as the heat is turned up.  The frog doesn’t even know what is happening.  He doesn’t know he is slowly dying.

It is time to wake up.  It is time to ask questions.  It is time to understand and remember our rights and kindly insist they be enforced.  I am not advocating angry outbursts, that will get us nowhere.  I am simply saying we must speak up!  We must ask questions.  We must not settle for this blatant tyranny.

Tyranny is defined as; cruel, unreasonable, or arbitrary use of power or control.

That is exactly what is happening.  It is cruel and unreasonable to force people into medical emergencies alone, without the support of a loved one. Or to withhold medicine or procedures if we don’t comply with the ever-changing rules. It is wrong. We cannot allow it to continue.  However, unless we stand up and fight, it will continue.  Someone has to say something.

That day, it was me.

This mother didn’t want her daughter in fear and panic.  I know every mother reading this would feel the same way. I so wished others had followed me in, but they didn’t.  They remained in their vehicles; their loved ones remained alone.

As I sat in that waiting room, looking at the patient’s faces, I wanted to hug them and tell them it would be okay.  But we were not allowed to do that. In retrospect, I wonder if I should have ignored it and given them a hug anyway.

It was God who said it was not good for man to be alone.  He set this precedent.  We must fight to keep it.

As I said, I am one who hates confrontation. It goes against my nature. I am writing to those of you who, like me, would sit in your car compliant.  Are we really willing to let this continue? Or are we going to start asking questions and standing up for the rights of our loved ones?

How can we pray?

  • Pray that unreasonable guidelines are abolished.
  • Pray for the leaders of these facilities. That their eyes will be opened, and they will acknowledge the need for the sick to have someone with them.
  • Pray those enduring these situations will rise up and begin to ask questions.
  • Pray that fear is cast out and peace comes to reside in its place.
  • Pray that each hospital, doctor’s office, and clinic will put the well-being of the patient as a priority.

It’s now time to speak up. If not now, when?

Thank you for this inspiration! I, nor a loved one, is in this situation; however, I am immensely grateful for this message of direction and hope. I too have a daughter with high anxiety levels at times like Brianne’s. I appreciate knowing I can help my child as well as others in a given situation with the help and hope of Jesus!! God Bless you!!!

I just went through similar situation. My daughter 29y/o cancer survivor 5 times was in hospital 2times 12 of 15 days was spent in hospital alone. They refused numerous times to let me see her. She was having meltdown’s daily. I have been there with her every step of her journey over the last 12 years. My heart was broken I felt as though I let her down. Now I can’t sleep I’m always checking on her. If she needed to return to hospital she would refuse which scares me because her weight is still at 72 lbs and she is still throwing up daily. What is one to do if the hospital refuses. Do we have any rights?

Thank God for this precious young lady, thank you that you were bold enough to stand up for the rights of others. A good lesson for everyone who reads this and has the faith and trust in God’s Word and His Way. Bless you dear lady, and thank you.

I knew something in the health industry had drastically changed on January 27, 2020, much earlier than everyone wants to admit when i took a sick person to hospital in a big city.

The sick person was admitted to the hospital for a few days after going to the ER.
We had been to the same hospital ER and admitted to the hospital for 4 previous years:
2016 November for a few days with flu
2017 October a few days for pneumonia
2018 December a few days for the flu
2019 for flu.

Under normal circumstances there is a list of patient requirements before release.
There was always a follow-up phone call from a hospital staff member a few days after patient release checking status of patient.

The requirements to go home (and not to a nursing home or rehabilitation facility) ARE:
1. drink liquids without vomiting
2. bowel movement
3. walking patient to make sure they can walk to bathroom and maintain balance.
4. Follow-up phone call from a hospital staff member.

We know this was the procedure, from going to the same ER and being admitted to the same hospital, for limited number of days in 2016, in 2017, in 2018, in 2019.

So why would it have changed in January 2020 if they did not already know about the virus that came from Wuhan China.

In January 2020, I was still allowed to sleep in a chair next to patient to make sure everything is done on the up and up. I would advise every person going to any medical facility for any reason to have an advocate with them at all times, DEMAND IT.

Patient advocacy must not change.

The problem we had with the BIG CITY HOSPITAL was perplexing.
For 3 days, the sick person was not able to take a sip of liquids without vomiting. As soon as he was able to take a few sips without vomiting we were asked to leave. They didn’t care if he had a bowel movement. I can live with that. He hadn’t been out of bed for the length of the stay and days at home and almost had to be carried out. There was no follow-up phone call. Also the prescriptions for medications to get well at home was inadequate. From the experience and knowledge gathered from the FOUR previous hospital stays, he was able to get well.

These changes to our healthcare system are profound.
The overlords of these changes are hidden from the public.
At some point, all the people in the healthcare industry, I am guessing, will be fired if they don’t follow direct orders and keep their mouths shut.

BUT these doctors took an oath:
The Hippocratic Oath is one of the oldest binding documents in history. Written in antiquity, its principles are held sacred by doctors to this day: treat the sick to the best of one’s ability, preserve patient privacy, teach the secrets of medicine to the next generation, and so on.

Nurses took oath also:
The Nightingale pledge: a Hippocratic Oath for nurses
I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug.

The doctors and nurses participating in EVENT 201 at John Hopkins University and all the lies put forth after clearly violate their oaths.

Public records in china reveal, a three block radius around one of the Wuhan Labs was shut down in October 2019.
In addition, cell phone usage came to a complete Stop for THREE DAYS in the three block radius around the lab.
The Wuhan virus obviously left the lab in October

The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, with the World Economic Forum and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, hosted Event 201, a multimedia global pandemic exercise on Friday, Oct. 18, 2019, in New York City. This group of public-health experts gathered for a simulation. Their objective was to determine how industry, national governments, and international institutions could work together to respond to a hypothetical “pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences.”
The so-called EVENT 201 claiming that it was A FICTIONAL EXERCISE AND DISEASE is so obviously a lie.
Back in 2015 the NIH under the direction of Dr. Tony Fauci gave a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Behind the scene deals, money, and manipulation has infected the USA healthcare industry.
The government getting involved in USA healthcare is dangerous.
We as citizens of the USA, must advocate for local small town hospitals and offices.
Please know your small town doctors and nurses personally.

Haha! I can relate! And praise God, like you, he gave me boldness in a similar situation. My oldest son has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. I suffer from lightheadedness due to migraines and I knew that at his appointment for an x-ray followed by a follow up with the general surgeon I would need my other son to help lift him. (For alas, the hospital will not allow personnel to lift patients due to the liability). I also called radiology ahead of the appointment to make sure my son could come with (as he usually does, but with the pandemic I felt the need to check). They said, “yes, ma’am that will be fine.” So I had peace everything would be okay. When I got there, I was not greeted by a rude nurse (thanking God for that wonderful mercy) but I was greeted by a woman who was part of security and a couple assistants who were helping with security and very kind. However, she told me that she did not think my son could go up to x-ray with me. I assured her that I called and it was indeed okay. She then told me that she had to check because they would get in trouble if she allowed us all to go. I told her to call and take her time. I waited. I knew time was wasting and my appointment time was approaching, but I told her I would wait until she got through. She kept apologizing for the wait. I kept reassuring her that it was okay, I will wait. 20 minutes later she could not get through upstairs to authorize. I did not give in. But after her seeing how patient I was and that I WAS NOT GOING TO LEAVE MY CHILD, she proceeded to say “You know what? Just go.” She said “Whatever happens, I will tell them I tried to call.” I told her not to worry, that I will take full responsibility for what happens. When I got upstairs, the reception recognized my name from the phone call and we went straight back. The nurse then recognized us and said, “Oh yes, we remember you!” She told me not to worry, everything was fine. After the x-ray, we went back downstairs to tell the lady from security that it all went well and I even gave her the name of receptionist in radiology if she needed to speak with her. His other appointment not only went well (and on time), but my son was discharged from general surgery because the x-ray got a good report! I did not have rude people to confront but had I not stood my ground, who knows what might have happened? I thank God that it worked out like it did. He is a buckler and he paved the way that day! Praise the Lord!

Amen and amen for so many replies. I’ve been waiting for many months now to see a doctor for a condition that was questionable after an ultra-sound. They wanted me to have a biopsy on my thyroid after a neck surgery. Now the appointment is coming up, and this information is something I’ve prayed to have wisdom and knowledge about. Thanks so much to Kim’s article I feel well informed and armed to deal with this appointment.

Thank God for answered prayers, and a community of prayer warriors to help us all navigate these treacherous panic driven rules, made by many that have absolutely no faith in God, for the most part.

We live in a Republic with a constitution that provides us with God given rights, we need to stand up, and fight now against, what has quickly disappeared during these last months, and has started to look more like a Socialist State. We all need to stand and vote this year for those that would return in full our Republic and our constitutional rights, before they are gone for good.

We haven’t been given a Spirit of Fear, but a Spirit of power, love and sound mind.

I think this is a great time to look at ourselves too. How old is her daughter. She must be an adult, thus, I encourage her to stand in Christ in power, love and a sound mind. We all need to learn to stand! And in this case it sounds like an internal evaluation would benefit both the mom and daughter.

    I doubt from your comments that you have ever experienced severe anxiety or a panic attack (many people feel they are having a heart attack). Nobody wants to experience those feelings which are far beyond feeling merely nervous, but it is a great blessing when people who suffer from this are treated with compassion and gently encouraged to move forward.
    There are many causes: sometimes chemical imbalances in the body, possible spiritual attacks, emotional traumas, etc. Memorizing Scripture and reciting it can help, also prayer covering, counseling, behavior modification techniques, medication, etc. Praying for God’s wisdom and direction to find the unique path to individual healing is essential.
    In my case, we finally discovered I had a mitral valve prolapse which was causing rapid heartbeat. I was also tested for hypoglycemia and overactive thyroid, However, these medical tests were only done after I had seen a counselor for several weeks who finally said, “Everything you are telling me is physical. We just have to find out what it is.”

Thank you for writing and sharing this article. It is important that people speak out about actions that harm not only our loved ones but others no matter how well intentioned. I have been a caregiver for my parents since 2010. My dad passed away in 2016. During that time I have learned how important it is to advocate for my parents at doctors appointments and during hospital visits–to make sure they understand the questions medical professionals are asking as well as understand the information they are being given. My being with them was also important to help ease their anxiety. In my dad’s case in particular as he suffered from dementia and was nearly deaf in one ear. He could easily become agitated and anxious around strangers, so my being present with him did much to help him remain calm and feel safe.

Also from my own experience having undergone surgery some years ago, I recall how knowing my sister and sister-in-law were present in the waiting room helped to greatly ease my own anxiety. I had never had surgery until that moment and was prepared to cancel it after having already been prepped. My sister was the voice of reason in that moment, which I had been for her just 4 years earlier when she had her first surgery. I remember feeling particularly comforted seeing my sister’s face in my hospital room after being brought back from surgery. She stayed all night in that hospital room reading Psalm 91 to me, and occasionally calling for assistance on behalf if I seemed too uncomfortable. I have done the same for my parents when they have had to stay overnight in the hospital.

When we are sick, it’s not just our bodies that are affected; our minds and emotions are impacted also. And many doctors and health professionals were beginning to recognize this aspect of our being and advocated for treating the whole person–spirit, mind and body. I pray that patients and their families will begin to speak up along with medical professionals to let those in leadership know that it is vital to improving health that we make the well-being of the patient as a whole a priority.

Heavenly Father- PRAISE YOU as you continue to teach us to SEEK, ASK & KNOCK, Knowing that YOU hear us and answer. I shed tears of joy for the fact that as difficult as these times are, you are awakening us to the full power of Ephesians 6:10-20 as we learn to discern and STAND as the victory is already won in your name. So much of what evil has been doing is now being brought to light and many are having the scales removed from their eyes so that they can clearly see YOUR HAND and YOUR PROVISION. Please help us continue to declare your victory, knowing that there is much that must be exposed and broken off as there are many false idols that must be tossed down. Give us continued peace, joy that surpasses all understanding and the continual girding of 1 TIM 1:7 as we walk through this time. In the name of your son, AMEN.

Kim I agree family related patients should not be facing a medical challenge alone Makes no sense to be compliant to this. My daughter in law facing huge challenges as she is 7 mos pregnant and my son is not allowed to be with her as the options for her & first baby for them are discussed She is young & not from this country and anxious & frightened to the core This isn’t right. Any suggestions

Kim, ABBA says change your confession of faith as a mother concerning your daughter’s condition.
Then see how Peace surpasses all understanding as she lays hold of Truth about what GOD is saying over her through you.
Change will come by the grace and mercy of the Spirit of God, Himself, angels working along with you as you do.

Thank you Ms Potter, for this article and for your courage to stand up for your daughter! I have been SO concerned about the seeming “submission” to all “authority” that I am observing everywhere. We must be very aware of what is really happening and willing to question and to also challenge these unrealistic orders. The “frog in the pot” is an excellent warning!

My daughter is professional advocate. She has been in situations I didn’t agree with since I am a reserved person. However, the Lord has shown me it no longer works to quietly pray. HE is showing me how to speak out and when. Being locked up for three months felt like I went to a prison of someone else’s instigation. I don’t like being left in a prison with no options so, ” I appeal to the Father, the Creator of Heaven and Earth.” This situation of compliance expected has extended to police, car repairs, department stores? I am Now being gifted in this area of non-compliance as the Lord directs.
I can’t emphasize along with you how important your message is at this time.
I see swastikas and military weapons in the hands of ” civilians” and know the war had arrived in my city and nation. ARISE

My 90 year old mom and myself were stopped at the door of the xray facility yesterday, because we were told by her doc that she didnt have to wear a face mask, as she has COPD and it is very hard to breathe through a mask. we made phone calls and were able to enter with the stipulation that she wore a mask while in contact with the tech and any other staff.(just for short periods of time) Funny they kept saying”saying” it was for her own good .

Yes we need to stand up, and we need to know what our constitutional rights are. I was told that was an ADA violation to make her wear a mask, but when I called the ADA I was told that it was a case by case determination and that the facility would probably win, if they were consistantly checking everyone. Well they werent. A lady just went walking by as they were there “fighting” with us. When I asked them about her, they just said that is was an oversight. HMMMMM My mom said then why cant we just be an oversight.

I was really proud of my 90 year old mom fighting for our rights. I was allowed to go in with her , but had to wear a mask and be screened to do it.

Any thoughts or suggestions, since we have to go back again Thussday?????

    I have provided face shields for my employees who cannot breathe well with masks. They are inexpensive or can be made with a sheet protector and reduce or eliminate the passage of “particles” from the wearer. I purchased mine from Ameri-shield. May God bless you next visit as you are armed with more experience AND boldness. (I too have a feisty 91 year old mom who does not like people telling her what to do!)

I am an RN and can attest to this. Patients have faced cancer surgeries and procedures alone without family members. Dads haven’t been allowed to hear the heartbeat or view sonograms of their babes in utero, and worse, for a few weeks they weren’t allowed in the delivery room. Sick and vulnerable patients had no one to hold their hands in ERs. It’s unconscionable. But it’s real. And it’s sad, and from the inside, we feel as helpless as you do. Our hours are being cut and we are floating to different areas, wondering too, when and how will this end. Thank you for your prayers! For being ‘confrontational’ and protecting your rights, and your families.
I do work at a faith based facility but even here, we feel the oppression that COVID enacted ‘guidelines’ have imposed. I became a nurse to help patients and their families, this season is one in which I’ve been made to be an ‘enforcer’ as well, under the guise of ‘best for all’. But clearly, it isn’t.

Father God, Thank You for the pressure You are putting on us to choose this day whom we will serve. Thank You for shedding light on the foolishness of this world’s experts–showing us the battle between good and evil, giving us the opportunity to drain the swamp in our hearts, homes, Churches and Nation. Thank You for preparing us for the times ahead. All things do work together for good. I pray for all those who suffer from anxiety to be able to trust in Christ as sufficient to supply courage for every moment. Thank You for toppling the idols in our lives. You love us and are so merciful to us. We pray as Jesus prays for us–for boldness and unity. May we be unified under submission to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. May our devotion to Him unite us. May we all be Spirit led and thus unified in word and action and may the world see our unity and Joy and give glory to You. In Jesus’ Name Amen.

This is soooo on target!! My mammogram in January showed a growth. I had to wait until May to get a surgical biopsy! It had become invasive from the first mammogram until the 4 month wait. My husband died 5 months ago and I was dealing with being alone. I have panic attacks before surgeries, but had to go through it alone. I had a partial mastectomy, and my son had to drop me off and wait in the car 6 hours! It seems our freedoms and comforts have gone!

Father God we lift all those who are enduring isolation and medical conditions without the support of their loved ones to you. We pray for the boldness to oppose the condtions that leave our loved ones alone and unprotected from arbitrary rules set by those who have no love for those who are vulnerable and afraid. Father in the precious name of Jesus open the doors for us where they have been closed and soften the hearts of those who don’t believe to receive your wisdom in these chaotic times.

I can’t imagine going through that with a child of mine! Thank God you were led to pray then confront!
During all this my husband drove me to ER in intense chest pain thought it was heart attack. He had to leave me at the door, went back to the car and waited for hours. The staff at the door had no concern that I was writhing with chest pain. I was told to go in and have a seat as if I had a bad cold. I sat on the nearest bench and thank God a nurse walked by, noticed my distress and immediately took me to the back. I was hospitalized for 5 days during which time a pacemaker was placed.
During those critical moments no one thought to confront or question. I will share this article.

Amen. We have been held captive long enough. It is extremely cruel to expect people going through medical procedures alone with no support. Why do you think that before covid so many in the ER had people( family , friends) with them. We are not meant to be alone. It is fear that is driving away our freedoms. Enough already.

Well said and even better done Kim. I am a former hospital administrator and I realized from early on that We The People were being lied to and manipulated by too many in “suppossed” positions of authority. Among them – I have caught both the CDC and NIH in numerous lies, which is extremely sad since 30 years ago I could typically rely on their pronouncements.

Were I still in my position, I would have ignored these organizations and based my decisions on many others in the medical community who were speaking out. Course, since so many hospitals are now part of a larger group, doing that could have put my position at risk, but then I took that risk in the past.

Just know I am with you as a brother in Christ and in health and for the truth. I have long realized we in health care are here for the PATIENT AND THEIR FAMILY.

Bless you for this article.

      Dear Kim,

      I posted your article on Facebook and it is already being seen and distributed by others. These much needed changes will only take place when those who work in the health field realize and begin to once again live the “caring” and “love” part, for those are much more important than any tests or machines. And a great part of this is allowing family and loved ones to be close by.

      Thank you for what you shared.

      May God continue to bless you in your writing.

      Bob

        Bob- As another former hospital administrator who has had the privilege of working internationally, I completely concur with your assessment and the continued lie of FEAR that is being used to control. I believe the most critical thing we can do at this time is to continue to show people that they are empowered with Power, Love and a Sound Mind (2 TIM 1:7) and that as they seek wisdom to discern (James 1:5) to TRUST that discernment and STAND according to Ephesians 6:10-20. I keep seeing the scene from the movie “War Room” where Claire (elderly woman) dancing in her kitchen with the quote, “Devil, you just got your butt kicked!”

Hallelujah!
My friend, Keith, is a young, single father of a nine-year-old boy. He recently had a heart transplant, and due to medical air is now battling a fungus that he’s trying to take over his body. The doctors have told them they can’t save his life but they will try on Thursday, a last ditch attempt with a 70% chance that he won’t make it. His mother, friends, and son have not been able to visit him! My brother asked if he could please take his son on Wednesday, because it might be the last time he sees his father, and the hospital relented!

But they only did so because they expect him to die. We speak life to Keith every other person in our hospitals across this nation who need the HOPE OF HEAVEN to bring them through! We speak life to our hospitals, we break the death mentality, the spirit of fear, spirit of death, the spirit of infirmity that has taken over our nation! By faith we break off the spirit of fear and death across our nation, in the name of Jesus. We cover this nation with the blood of Jesus, the wisdom of God, and the anointing of the Holy Spirit to battle for us!
Set us into position, we pray! Let us know where to speak, when to speak, how to speak, and with Wigan force and tone!
We submit ourselves to the control of the Holy Spirit into Jesus Christ our Savior, and not to systems in men, who don’t love You, Heavenly Father!
And while we’re at it, we bless the nations of the earth with the same prayer this morning, especially your beloved Israel!

Thank you for sharing your story. It is an inspiration to everyone. We all need to be a lioness! “Be bold, be strong for the Lord thy GOD is with us” As long as we have a quiet spirit and we hold our stand God will make a way.
You were a true testimony to your daughter as well. She will always remember you beside her in the waiting room because you pushed through, stood your ground and “leaped over that wall”. Psalm 18:29
Cry unto the Lord in your time of trouble and HE will always hear our cry!!!!
