...a special request for a local couple who is struggling right now. I received this email this morning and although I don't typically cut and paste things like this into this blog, it really seemed like the best way to ask people to take a moment and pray for this couple -- and the millions of people who need prayers of healing.
This prayer request for Gary and Cindy Hogman by way of Faith Presbyterian Church, Emmaus PA. Gary is serving in Iraq while his young wife is fighting cancer here. See his request below.
My name is Gary Hogman. Some of you receiving this know me, some do not. My wife, Cindy, is 32 years old and has just been diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer and her chances for survival are very slim. She was pregnant with our second child and had miscarried recently at 3months, and now we know why.
This is a request for you to forward this e-mail to everyone you know asking for prayer. The more people that pray for her to be healed, the better. Pray and forward. It only takes a second to hit 'forward'.
Please do it and don't delete this, your prayer can, and perhaps will, save her life. Please pray and ask everyone you know to pray for the HEALING of Cindy and the removal of all cancer in her body, so she may enjoy all that life has to offer, and to continue to be the wonderful mother to our 5-year-old son Michael. The power of Prayer is unsurpassed. I want the whole world to have her in their prayers the next few weeks. God will hear our cry. Please do not be offended by my plea. This is only a request for your help.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this and helping with our request for healing! No words can express the power we have when we each do a little to come together.
Regards, Cindy's husband - Gary
Thank you, and please send it to the far reaches of our world.
