Andy and Nix

Andy and Nix

Tuesday, 8 May 2012

Nix & I have been humbled by the response to our Blog published one week ago.  Over 5,000 hits in the first three days.  Strangers to us taking the time to pray, fast and write to us with powerful words backed up with scripture.  Thank you is inadequate.

The words to a Martin Smith song "Waiting Here For You" ( have been on a constant loop in my head for months.  The first two lines are my anthem.

If faith can move the mountains
Let the mountains move
We come with expectation
Waiting here for you, I’m waiting here for you

You’re the Lord of all creation
And still you know my heart
The Author of Salvation
You’ve loved us from the start

Waiting here for You
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Alleluia

You are everything You’ve promised
Your faithfulness is true
And we're desperate for Your presence
All we need is You


Singing Alleluia
Alleluia, singing alleluia, alleluia


Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
We're singing Alleluia

I'm singing Alleluia
Waiting here for you
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it's You we adore
Singing Alleluia
Singing Alleluia

This is a call to prayer.  We have a mighty Father, the only one who can save. We have Jesus, who gave His blood to heal us.  We have the Holy Spirit, who is with us.  
Despite the fact the doctors say they can do no more, we are full of hope that Nix can still be healed of cancer.
The prayer is simple, for the power of the Holy Spirit, the blood of Jesus and the eternal love of the Father to destroy every cancerous and pre-cancerous cell in Nix's body now.  
For the full and complete restoration of Nix's body, in this lifetime.  For the cancer to wither and die, for it's power to be disarmed.
For this illegal occupation to cease immediately and for the rightful landlord to reclaim what is His, and His alone.

God, you did everything you promised, and I'm thanking you with all my heart. You pulled me from the brink of death, my feet from the cliff-edge of doom. Now I stroll at leisure with God in the sunlit fields of life.  Psalm 56 12-13

Andy & Nix ask that you, one: join us in this prayer and two: forward the Blog onto any like minded person.  To people in your family, your friends, pastorate, home group, cell, church, The Royal Albert Hall.  We have a sense that the prayers of 10,000 will tip the scale and Nix's healing will come.  

"10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)"

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

The sun comes up, it's a new day dawning
It's time to sing Your song again
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

You're rich in love, and You're slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Bless the Lord, O my soul

O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name

Jesus, I'll worship Your holy name
Lord, I'll worship Your holy name

Sing like never before
O my soul
I'll worship Your holy name
Jesus, I'll worship Your holy name
I'll worship Your holy name

Through Jesus you are 100% loved and worthy to receive all of God's blessings. God is on your side, therefore we declare that you cannot be defeated, discouraged, depressed or disappointed. You are the head and not the tail. You have insight. You have wisdom. You have ideas and divine strategies. You have authority. We declare that your angels are carrying out the Word of God on your behalf. We speak to the raging waters in your life; peace, be still. We say to your mind; peace, be still.

We speak to this day and call you blessed. And we declare that we all serve a mighty God who today will do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all that we can ask or think. We say you are a GOOD GOD and we eagerly anticipate Your goodness today.

    I pray in the name of Jesus that cancer be lifted off from you now. Jesus paid for it all. He took cancer upon Himself so you could be totally free of it. We declare life, life, life, life life, life, life, life, life, life, life into every cell of your body and we release hope, hope, hope, hope, hope, hope, hope, hope, hope hope, hope over you and your family knowing that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD!!!

  11. “ Dearest Nix and Andy We are praying and claiming healing in the Name of Jesus for Nix SO much Love to you all Tiggs and Gaile xxxx

  12. Dearest Nix, I am sending prayers all the way from Johannesburg, South Africa. Praying that our dear Lord Saviour would touch your body and bring healing so that you may enjoy many more years here on the earth with your family. May you feel His arms around you right now as you read this prayer and feel a warmth surging into your body and spirit. I just feel a sense of Psalm 23, cooling water, refeshing water, drinking in His restoration. I also had a picture of God touching your body as when He is at work knitting a baby together in our womb. Never before have I felt such a closeness to God as when he knitted my babies together in my womb. I pray that you may feel his restoration and knitting together in your body as He bring healing to the point of being fearfully and wonderfully made again. Praise be to Him, Praise be to God.

  13. shoulder to shoulder with you.

  14. hi there our 7 yr old had a brain tumour and after being told there was nothing more they could do we went home and got stuck in... we posted all the scripture God had given us around our house, listened to teaching on healing like desperados esp the Couplands 10 day healing action plan and paul yongi cho's 4th dimension. We repented when He showed us how this thing had gained entry and then moved forward knowing He is willing to heal. We imagined life with Celia well and then let the Holy Spirit help us imagine even more, we gulped at the fear and fought sometimes minute by minute to keep it swallowing us up. We broke bread with those unafraid and confident that she would be alright because they had overcome themselves. Until one evening God arrived in our living room and we were given the words to speak over celia to deliver her healing to her... it came as a seed and we watered it with the command from God to praise, thank, speak the blood of Jesus, shout victory and then finally to proclaim a blessing. We are grateful eternally to be 2 years away from her death prognosis with the consultant saying her scans are incompatible with one another. Dont give up, sometimes the battle is fierce, but its worth it and all those who put their hope in Him will NEVER be put to shame! Hope this helps and gives you some ideas for war. Love to you guys, Viv x

  15. has amazing scriptures for healing on mp3

  16. Nix
    To finally find you and make contact after all these years, then to read this news. Deeply shocked and saddened.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family through this very difficult time. Be strong in faith.
    Love Paul Mulligan & family.

  17. Nix - Steffy Frizzel - You Tube - Bethel - "Our God". No weapon formed against you will prosper. He has plans to prosper you and not to fail you, to give you hope and a FUTURE. Love you Nix. Jess H xxxxxxxxxx

  18. Praying you Nix, you have been on my heart and mind daily, continuing to wrestle with God in all of this and pressing in.

    Colossians 1 v 15-20

    We have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way; bearing fruit in every good work, growing in knowledge of God being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might, so that you may have great endurance and patience and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the son he loves in whom we have redemption for the forgiveness of sins.

    Lots of love Michelle

  19. we are praying for you
    love emma and danny

  20. As Moses prayed over Miriam (a verse we were given by Noemi yesterday along with the reminder that its Nix's middle name!)
    "O Lord, make her well" and she recovered in seven days (Numbers12)
    Lord this is our prayer that our Nix would receive this heavenly healing NOW!!

    And we also pray the encouragements of Lamentations 3 over the whole family
    "Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
    Because of the Lord's great love we are NOT consumed, for his compassions never fail.
    They are new every morning : great is your faithfulness.
    I say to myself "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him"

    This is indeed what we are doing "waiting for the lord" to bring his healing on our dear nix. Bring it on lord

    We proclaim this and we love you all
    Jules & Erik and family xxx

  21. Romans 8 v 37
    'No,in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future nor any powers, neither height nor depth nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.' Love and prayers to you Nix and to your family. Always Paul, Amanda and Phoebe xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  22. Nix, we were with you round the fire on November 5th, watching fireworks on the distant hills.
    Just praying for you and all your family now, for God's love to burn brightly.
    With love, Jacky and Andrew Parsons

  23. Praying for you and with you all Nix, HE is able to do IMMEASURABLY MORE than we can hope or imagine...Loads of love Amanda, Rupert, Benjy and Barney Edwards xxxx

    If you are following this blog, I hope you might be stirred to join a growing number who are sensing Holy Spirits nudge to pray and fast for Andy and Nix. There is no compulsion and you should not participate out of a place of 'should, ought or guilt', we only want to show the Lord that we are serious, we are prepare to do anything that might release the blessing, not to try and twist his arm into responding, but to show him that our desire is to have our hearts beating in time with His, for Nix.
    And His desire is to see her well.
    But I just wonder as we fast and pray in pursuit of the presence of the Lord whether we might see or hear from our Father the word that unlocks the...'on earth as it is in heaven'....
    If you sense the Spirits nudge to join in, we would love to hear via the blog, what the lord is showing you or saying to is between you and Holy Spirit how long you choose to fast.
    The Lord is always good.
    God Bless.

  25. Dear Andy and Nix,
    We are continuing to pray and will take up the call to fast as well.
    Our love and prayers are with you.
    Tiggs and Gaile

  26. This is from a good friend of Andy and Nix from Cape Town.....

    Dear friends
    I just spoke very briefly to John now and heard there has been a flare-up in Nix's liver. I don't know all the details but I do feel strongly that this is a direct attack from the enemy in response to the call for prayer sent out on the blog. This is designed to attack our faith as pray-ers and cause us to doubt and give up hope.

    May I dare to suggest that the enemy is being backed into a corner and getting desperate? Let us stand together in faith and if it is too hard for you so close to it, there are plenty of us to stand in the gap for you and we will do so. I have been praying already wtih my friend, Glenda Baker, along these lines and we will continue to pray LIFE for Nix today and faith and strength for you, nearest and dearest.

    "I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills his purpose for me.
    he sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me;
    God sends his love and his faithfulness."
    Psalm 57: 2

    much and dearest love

  27. A hearty Amen to all that the fabulous Mrs Cowley wrote!


    'I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his people, and his INCOMPARABLY GREAT POWER for us who believe. That power is the same as the MIGHTY STRENGTH he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that can be invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come' (Ephesians 1: 18 - 21)

    I pray that the Lord's will will be done in your life, safe in the certain knowledge that his will is without doubt the absolute best that I could pray for.

    With love from Rachel Robertus x

  28. We too feel 'stirred' to pray earnestly and fast with others - to press in to the Lord most urgently and seek his healing onto Nix's body NOW.

    We will stand together, with our brothers and sisters in Christ and wait on the lord for his mighty power to come and for 'Heaven to touch earth' and his mighty hand to wipe out all that comes against Nix's health.

    With all our love
    Jules & Erik x

  29. Dear Nix and family, we are praying with you. He makes everything possible. He will hear our prayers.

    We place Nix in Your hands o Lord.

    With love from Ola and Yemi Solaja

  30. Another peach from Gil in Cape Town ....

    Hiya Andy
    My friend, Glenda Baker, sent me this amplified version of Numbers 6:24-26, using the fullest sense of the hebrew original.
    We are praying it together over Nix and all of you.
    much and dearest love

    May Adonai bless you, release you from restrictions and limitation and infuse you with unlimited potential and empowerment.

    May Adonai zealously cherish, diligently defend, guard, keep watch over, protect, treasure, save you and make your Divine Destiny His highest priority

    May Adonai’s Face shine upon you which is the illuminating power of His Face as warming power, healing power, soothing power, restorative power, constantly renewing power and empowering energy and shower you with grace.

    May Adonai give you whatever it takes to bring you to the point of full covenant participation and enjoyment, and to the fulfillment of your destiny.

    May Adonai lift up His countenance upon you to transcend the flames and to experience spiritual reality as it is.

    May He give you wholeness, wellness, security, completion, purposeful living, joy, abundant provision, peace, harmony, safety and Covenant enjoyment.
    NUMBERS 6:24-26



    How wonderful is this, as under the New Covenant we believers are all Kings and Priests(Rev 1:6). To God be the glory.

  31. Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits
    – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases.
    Psalm 103:2-3

  32. Dear Nix

    Driving home last Wednesday night after praying at yours,the Lord reminded me of the many battles faced by Joshua,taking the promised land which did not go uncontested: destiny usually comes with a battle,whatever that looks like. the lord said to Joshua and he says to you "Be strong and very courageous" Joshua was a strong and accomplished warrior but he needed strength in his inner man from the Lord as you do now.There is a destiny over your family which we all need to stand for in the Lord.

    I wanted to remind you of a healing testimony from my own family to encourage you at this time.
    When I first became pregnant with James, a miracle in itself, as I had been told from an early age that I couldn't have children, the pregnancy was clearly ectopic.The hospital in London that admitted me wanted it removing quickly as i was in acute pain and approaching the critical time.I remember being last in line for theatre and the call came to take me down.Jay and I in desperation cried out to the Lord for a miracle.Suddenly Flo arrived with a different surgeon,who agreed to re scan,he found a tiny egg, barely visible to the eye, after much heated debate between the medics, surgery was cancelled and James life saved.
    In the last 4 months of that same pregnancy I had 3 car crashes, each resulted in an ambulance rushing me to A&E and each time delivery was avoided. The Lord has planned for James and his life did not go uncontested.
    The Lord was mighty for Joshua, mighty for James and he will show himself mighty for you in Jesus name.
    When I first saw the beautiful pictures on your blog my first thoughts were,that they looked like pictures of a "Book Cover" when I heard the prophetic words about writing it, it was if it was a done deal in heaven.

    Standing with you in prayer
    every blessing

  33. Dear Nix praying for you and your beautiful family love Wendy Jackson, Debs neighbour xx

  34. We're continuing to pray every day for all of you and are aware of our wonderful God whose love is beyond measure. Cameron & Caroline, Bonnie, Jamina, Fergus, Katrina & Ralph.

  35. Hi My lovely friends!

    Isaiah 55 vs 11
    so it is with my word that goes out from my mouth: it will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it

    Felt reminded this morning that what The Lord has foretold will be accomplished !!

    Continuing to stand and battle with and for you



  36. Gil, I think I want you as my friend too. Keep them coming, we will be joining you by praying those verses over Nix and Andy tonight (Wednesday) in their home...Yes LORD.

  37. Praying and fighting in the heavenly realms daily. May the precious blood of Jesus flow through you bringing healing to every single cell in your body. May His peace reign in your body. I had a picture yesterday of all your family, friends and supporters standing around you, facing outwards, holding shields. We were all shoulder to shoulder as Bill said, but standing so close that there was no gap, no chink in the armour for any enemy arrows to fly through. I pray His guardian angels watch over you, His warrior angels do battle for you and His Holy Spirit be always by your sides.

    Sending lots of love to you all, Carolina xxxx

  38. dear dear nix

    praying for you - you very very special lady. xxxx

  39. Hi Nix,

    In 1990, when I attended my first ever (of very many to come) Zam Hols camp at Ruzawi, you collected me from the bus (Ajay Motorways). Thank you for playing that part in bringing me to God. Your dad, mom and brother then deposited directly and hugely into my life and have positively shaped who I am today.

    I thank God for you today and pray that you be healed in the name of Jesus!

    Mpi Ndebele, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe

  40. Psalm 107:20

    New International Version (NIV)

    20 He sent out his word and healed them;
    he rescued them from the grave.

  41. To those following Nix's blog, do please read again the entry posted by Jim and Viv on 10th May...testimony is HUGLY powerful, Rev 19 v 10b says ...'For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy'... in other words, what Jesus has done before, He will do again, so we say, Lord we are waiting, knowing you will do in Nix what you did for Celia, we are going to see it at any moment, and Nix will have scans that show not a trace of cancer in her body, This is not wishful thinking, this is what Father has said.

  42. Sending you all lots of love vibes from Texas, Lx

  43. Psalm 116:8 For you, O LORD, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling,

  44. Dear Nix and Andy,

    I'm praying for you guys. Psalm 40 is on my mind - I started to highlight some of it but it ended up all highlighted! U2 sang it and I love it.

    Much love to you all,

    Jim Rennison

    Psalm 40

    1 I waited patiently for the LORD;
    he turned to me and heard my cry.
    2 He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
    out of the mud and mire;
    he set my feet on a rock
    and gave me a firm place to stand.
    3 He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
    Many will see and fear the LORD
    and put their trust in him.
    4 Blessed is the one
    who trusts in the LORD,
    who does not look to the proud,
    to those who turn aside to false gods.[b]
    5 Many, LORD my God,
    are the wonders you have done,
    the things you planned for us.
    None can compare with you;
    were I to speak and tell of your deeds,
    they would be too many to declare.
    6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire –
    but my ears you have opened;[c] –
    burnt offerings and sin offerings[d] you did not require.
    7 Then I said, ‘Here I am, I have come –
    it is written about me in the scroll.[e]
    8 I desire to do your will, my God;
    your law is within my heart.’
    9 I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly;
    I do not seal my lips, LORD,
    as you know.
    10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
    I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help.
    I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness
    from the great assembly.
    11 Do not withhold your mercy from me, LORD;
    may your love and faithfulness always protect me.
    12 For troubles without number surround me;
    my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.
    They are more than the hairs of my head,
    and my heart fails within me.
    13 Be pleased to save me, LORD;
    come quickly, LORD, to help me.
    14 May all who want to take my life
    be put to shame and confusion;
    may all who desire my ruin
    be turned back in disgrace.
    15 May those who say to me, ‘Aha! Aha!’
    be appalled at their own shame.
    16 But may all who seek you
    rejoice and be glad in you;
    may those who long for your saving help always say,
    ‘The LORD is great!’
    17 But as for me, I am poor and needy;
    may the Lord think of me.
    You are my help and my deliverer;
    you are my God, do not delay.

  45. Dear Nix,

    Praying for you and your gorgeous family everyday! All our love and more,
    Min, Aaron, Ava and Zac xxx

  46. Dear Nix,
    I have not known you for long, but during that time I have come to realize what a lovely kind and caring person you are. You are strong and have so much faith, that I hope and pray that together with the prayers from so many people will give you strength and hope in your fight. Every day I think of you and pray for you, Andy, the children and your family.

    Rob (and not forgetting Shane)

  47. "...then I will restore her...and make the dale of Trouble a door of hope" (Hosea 2 v 15)

    Nix, have been reading a book by a lady called Catherine Marshall think she was writing in the 50s-70s (before Alpha...)and she went through a period of prolonged sickness with TB. I have been asking for words for you and felt it was right to share the words from her journal.



  48. Hebrews 11:1

    King James Version (KJV)

    11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

  49. Dear Nix and Andy,
    This we know - we have a God of the impossible who knows you and loves you more than we can begin to imagine. He will be hearing every cry, every prayer on your behalf and as a family we will join in with those intercessions knowing that Jesus can wipe out every trace of your illness as He has done before. We look forward to tea in the Wragg's garden again!
    love Julia Clive Tiffany and Jeremiah

  50. lovely Nix,
    Continuing to stand with you for complete healing from our awesome heavenly father...
    I came across this quote this morn and thought of you:

    Proverbs 4:20-22 (NIV)
    My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. [21] Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; [22] for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body.

    2 Thessalonians 3:3 (NIV)
    But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.

    He replied, "Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.

    Mark 11:23-24 (NIV)
    "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. [24] Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

  53. Dear Nix, hello from us. I was deeply saddened to hear this update about your condition, something we are as you know, all too well aware of (although for us more optimistic). I think of you every day and can only imagine how hard it must be. Amazing things can happen and I truly hope for a miracle. Can it be nearly 20 years since Zimbabwe 1993. They were good times. I hear you are strong and full of courage. You are an inspiration. We are also really thinking of Andy and his strength and courage. Much love to you, Aled & Tamsin xx

  54. May God be with you both and the children in particular at this time more than you have ever felt Him. We are crying out for you Nix. xx

  55. Our prayers for you and your wonderful family continue and we join with all your friends and family in praying for your healing Nix.

    Your faith is such a lesson to us all and we are in awe of your amazing strength which can only have come from your trust in our Lord for his blessings and grace.

    With love to you all

    Douw and Liz Buys

  59. Isaiah 26:3 You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You and hopes confidently in You.
    V4 So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope CONFIDENTLY in Him) forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting ROCK (the Rock of Ages).

    John 11 May God help you to believe (to trust and rely on Him)

    We are excited to see you standing up at Focus and giving your testimony. Praise Jesus!!!

    Dear Nix
    When I saw this scripture posted on your blog the other day,
    "God, you did everything you promised, and I'm thanking you with all my heart. You pulled me from the brink of death, my feet from the cliff-edge of doom. Now I stroll at leisure with God in the sunlit fields of life." Psalm 56 12-13

    Something really connected with the last bit, about strolling at leisure with God in the sunlit fields of life, this was a picture I had of you when praying for you some months ago and as I read that bit of the verse I knew that was what it meant. The feeling I had at the time of seeing the picture was of you and your family strolling through wheat fields in years to come, even into your old age.

    We have been so touched by your and Andy's standing in faith on this journey and are standing with you, excited and expectant at what God is going to do, "He watches over His Word to perform it". I felt Him say another time that He will honour your faith and you will not be ashamed.

    The other day I had an impression while praying for you that your healing will spark off a revival, which will spread out from where you are.

    We are standing and trusting with you and pray for God's peace to wrap around you and your family and extended family.

    Lots of love from Cape town

  61. Dear Nix

    Ephesians 3 v 20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

    He is working
    Much love and infinite blessings
    God bless

  62. Dear Nix and Andy

    These are some encouraging and powerful testimonies to uplift your Spirit. James 1:2-4 Let patience have a perfect work. The power of patience is necessary to undergird faith. Faith and patience together will produce every time.Patience without faith has no power to call into reality the things desired. Faith is the substance of things we hope for. You will have what you have asked for! Be blessed beautiful Hendersons. We love you and continue to pray and praise our Mighty Lord Jesus!!

    Continue to speak LIFE!!!

  63. Dear Nix & Andy,

    You are in our thoughts often. I cannot help feeling, when reading all these posts and talking with Foz & James, that the most incredible thing is going to take place. So much of what people have shared here, and what I've gathered from others points to something extraordinary. I know I've only heard a fraction of what the Lord has spoken to people, but I have that sense too that others testify to, that God will have his way and that his way will be beyond belief. I cannot begin to imagine how tough it must be to live in that tension between a hopeless medical prognosis and a faith that can move mountains and even raise the dead. You are both so inspiring in the way that you are dealing with your situation; the faith that you have generated in people through your blog is nothing short of miraculous.

    The word that constantly comes to mind when I pray for Nix is the word "Arise!" It is as if it's a call to the Lord to arise and cause His glory to be revealed in this situation, a call to me to arise in prayer, a call to your friends and family to arise in prayer, but also, and perhaps most significantly, I sense it is the call of the armies of heaven upon Nix and that this call will come at a designated time as prescribed by the Lord himself. Isaiah 60 verses 1 & 2 say,

    "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
    See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you."

    This is the heart of my prayer and declaration of faith for you. "Arise Lord! Arise Church! Arise Nix, for your light has come. The darkness of this cancer will be no longer, for the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you!"

    Coupled with this I get an image of Nix surrounded with this glorious light as she goes about the Lord's business. It is the glory of the Lord which is manifesting through her and it's as if Nix is passing it on to others.

    May King of Kings Arise and may His glory be revealed!

    With our love,

    Jim (and Dolly) xxx

    Faith, that will last through eternity.
    Faith, to endure, till the end of time.
    Faith, as he puts his hand in mine.

    Standing with you, with hope that the Lord will protect you & heal you.
