Jesus Christ, Name above all names
The One who took on all our shame
By His stripes we are healed
This promise His Word revealed
He conquered death and the grave
For all who believe, He came to save
He healed all sickness and disease
From Him all demons must flee
Cancer, the dreaded word in this world
A powerful dart the enemy hurls
The disease that brings so much fear
Striking the ones He holds so dear
A battle that too many must face
Affecting unbiased across the race
Taking victims by the thousands
Appearing in many forms and strands
Too many times we battle this alone
Thinking we can handle it on our own
The devil takes delight in this deception
And is the author of this misconception
No more! I say against the devilís lie
It holds no power and Iíll tell you why
Thinking youíre alone, youíre mistaken
Know you are never left nor forsaken
This battle is between only two
For there is One who intercedes for you
This tool of the enemy has a name
All that is named is under the same
Jesus Christ has full authority of all things
That authority is what He brings
Available to believers this very hour
For this battle He has given you power
We do not battle in flesh and blood
But with power that flows like a flood
Power to cast out demons and heal disease
The Big C defeats the little cís
Brothers and Sisters,
I have a prayer request. There is a little girl in Texas by the name of Andrea. She is four years old and has been diagnosed with Leukemia. Pray for Andrea and her family. Also pray for her father is my first friend here in Japan. Please pray that the military helps arrange for him to be stationed near his home so he can take care of his family during this crisis.
The title of this poem is borrowed from another dear friend of mine named Donnamarie who has proven the same.
The Lord is changing me on the inside. I remember having a conversation with my brother in Christ about the natural knee jerk reaction we get when we hear that someone has cancer. I have been just as guilty as anyone having lost too many friends and family to the disease.
When Rob got the word about Andrea, he told us a few minutes after he collected himself (we were putting in a late night at work). My first reaction was sympathy for him, his daughter, and his family. My second reaction was a righteous anger towards this disease. I went into prayer with a conviction of using every Spiritual weapon I have available. I just wished it was corporal enough to reach out and grab it and beat it down.
Christ is bigger than cancerÖwhat else do you need? I wrote this a few hours later. Big C wins in straight sets each and every time. It is time that we believe this fully and boldly apply it to those who are engaged in battle.
I write this with tears Christian, having lost my brother this past August to cancer and it is much hated and despised. God is always the higher power and i have to trust in that. The poem and your thinking is having faith and authority. I will be praying !
