me to put a discussion up here about a family friend's son who needs our prayers. The lady's name is Sue. She's a really nice lady and we're all glad to know her. She has three sons however, only one turned out to be a good person. The other two have been in trouble with the law in one way or another. Anyway, I'm trying to find the right words here, the good son has been diagnoised with leukemia and his prognosis doesn't look good. Mom asked me to post this on here and ask for prayers on his behalf. Sue's son's name is Willie. Will you please pray for him and that he recovers completely? You see, this is his second time around. He had leukemia before a few years ago and was able to beat it but then he relapsed and this time it doesn't look good BUT, with prayers being sent, things can change! Please, will you pray for Willie's recovery and that it be once and for all?! Thank you and may God bless you all!!

I prayed for Willie immediately after reading this discussion and will continue to pray for him. I am at this time being carefully watched and tested as I have a suspected Leukemia diagnosis hanging over my head.

Thank you so much I really appreciate your concern and I am a true believer in the power of prayer so every prayer helps. I have at this point two more tests the next one on April 6th. I did not post this as a discussion, actually I think this is the first time I have mentioned it.

You really should post it on here to let others know so we can ALL pray for you. Some will be hurt if they're not told because some of us care. I can do it for you if you want? I mean, I understand that you may not want to draw attention to yourself but this is some serious stuff and friends will want to know so they can pray for you too. I'm going to mark my calendar when your next tests will be so I won't keep asking you when it is.... I don't have much of a memory. lol But please do let others know so we can all pray for you!!

Awwww thank you!! I know that God will hear all our prayers and if it's His will, He'll make Willie whole again. However, the more prayers that are sent up to Him, the better Willie's chances will be.

Of course I will keep Willie in my prayers honey. Going through this awful disease once and beating it must be hard enough but to succumb to it a second time must be very difficult. I pray that God gives Willie the strength to fight and to stay positive during his fight against this horrible illness and that he beats it again, fully and quickly! xxxx

I cannot imagine being in this man's shoes having already gone through this awful disease already once and now having to go through it again. God has His reasons even though we may never know what it is, He still has his reasons. Thank you so much for your prayers!!

Yes absolutely prayer for willie, his family and also for your mom and the rest of your family for trying to help. It's important to know there is power in prayer and let hope and pray Willie won't give up. Loss of faith warrants poor prognosis. Let us pray for the remission of Willies leukemia.

Thank you so much Grandmaof2! Like my mom says, the more prayers that go up the more that will be heard and the power to move this mountain with God's help will be done, if it's His will. Thank you so much!

You came to the right place, let your momma know that her idea was a good idea. We at Mylot are honored to be asked to pray for people. I just said a prayer for Willie. I have asked for prayer from all of you before too. Just knowing that prayers are being said for you is such a comfort. Keep us posted on Willies progress and feel free to remind us to say prayers for him.

Thank you Polly! I tell mom about mylot all the time and how I've met some wonderful friends through here and of the things I've learned so she knows how important this site is to me and making money while having fun to boot!! lol She's quite amazed at the mere idea of such a place. BTW, I've really backed off from helping them because it just got to be too much and not really appreciated. I think they're feeling it too because when we do talk, she calls me a stranger in a joking way. lol I just wish they'd defend hubby and I but they won't so it's best that we take that step back. As for my brother, we haven't spoken since that last fallen out over his lieing son and I don't intend to either.... not until we get an apology which hell might freeze over before that happens and we say "so be it" I'll just keep on mylotting to give mom to help her out because finances are so tight for them still due to their house still hasn't sold. Hopefully it will be this spring or summer.

Life can be unfair when the bad guys get what they want and they are healthy, but then the good one always has to suffer for it. I will keep Willie in my prayers and I hope all the best to him and that he does get better, and that the leukemia doesn't turn out any worser. As long as Willie has lots of moral support, which I'm sure he does, it will make it much easier for him to fight leukemia. Once again all the best, and keep me posted on his progress! :)

Yes, life can be so unfair but it is life nonetheless. I feel that it's God's way for the good to carry the cross so we can enter the kingdom of heaven some day and the bad, well.... lets just say there's a place for them. Thank you so much for your prayers!! And yes I will keep you updated!!

I will most definitely pray for Willie and for Sue so that she has the strength to be there with her son. Hopefully things will turn around for her and her family.

I will send prayers out for Willie and his Mom. I also think that a prayer should be said for the other two sons, that they might see the error of their ways! With God's help they could turn their lives around. May God be with the whole family, guide them, strengthen them, and keep them in His care. God Bless!

My prayers are with him. I'll also pray for his family. Maybe,just maybe, this will be God's way of reforming his brothers. LEt's pray for that.

That is sad. It's unfair! Why does it have to be him? Most people would say that. I've already prayed for Willie before posting this. I really hope he makes it again like he did a few years ago. God bless.

I will definitely put him in our prayers! You just feel helpless, we you have no control over things. We are headed for my son's surgery on Wed.. His surgery is Thursday. Please add him to your prayers too. We will be gone at least a week. Good luck to Willie, and hope things turn out good for the second time for him.

Of course CatsandDogs you have my prayers being sent for his healing, and while the prognosis doesn't look good, if he beat it once he may again. (((((((hugs)))))))

I will certainly keep Willie and his family in my prayers. I will not only pray that he makes a full recovey, but also that he never has to face this again. You are right, prayer is a powerful thing and mant things have changed as a result of prayer.

Hi CatsandDogs! I'm sorry to hear that. You could sure count on my prayer for Willie. I hope he gets well. Sometimes, that kind of thing makes me believe that life is unfair but we couldn't just question it that way, everything happens for a reason and maybe, God has a better plan for him. I'll pray for Sue and Willie and stay as kind and nice as you are, you and your mom. Hope he gets well soon. God bless.
