Prayer SOS for one of our Best LPM Buddies

Hey, Siestas! I am so grateful for your kindness. This is from an email I got from Trav and Angela last night:

“Thanks so much for the call to prayer you gave. Ang and I were overwhelmed as we read all of the sweet prayers and messages. Too much! What an amazing community. I am proud to be a MIESTA. Their prayers are already working…”

Then a text this morning: “Hey! On the plane right now. Thanks to the prayers of sweet siestas…I am much better! Worst of it pretty much gone. Just feeling a little run down. Thanks for sending the SOS!”

Let me tell you how much impact you had through the power of Christ, Girls. The man I talked to yesterday – even last night via text – was in no shape to get on a plane this morning. But he did. God be praised! Never underestimate the power of prayer!! When you band together to believe God, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. God LOVES the faith and unity so much.

Original request:
Siestas, I wonder if you’d quickly jump on the prayer train with me for our dear friend and ministry partner, Travis Cottrell? He is really sick (nothing serious but pressing and almost travel-prohibitive – fever, etc.). He’s got several huge things coming up at once that need his utmost attention. First of all, it’s his and Angela’s darling Levi’s fifth birthday (that’s their baby) and they have his party today, then EARLY in the AM he’s got to board a flight to Puerto Rico for work with the International Mission Board THEN he goes straight into a city back in the States to serve at a church later in the weekend. I told him this morning if he didn’t get dramatically better soon, to consider allowing me to unleash the Siestas before the Throne of Grace in his behalf. Just got a call from him saying, “DO IT!” So, Siestas, DO IT!!!! Thank you so much. We have no dearer friends than he and Ang to LPM. I love you!

PS. You guys are the best. I just got home from Bible study and checked your responses, praying in agreement with you. Travis is the kind that will be really touched and humbled by all the support and so will Angela. I cannot even express what a wonderful woman of God she is. You’ll never waste a prayer on her because she is the one holding the three-children fort down (complete with home-schooling) when Trav is away. I loved the prayer for Travis that one of you related to the Scripture in Mark where Jesus raised the woman from the fever and she immediately began to serve Him. YES! Very appropriate! That’s what we need to happen. I’ll get you guys an update as soon as I hear one from him. Look at the top of this same post hopefully at some point over the next twenty-four to forty-eight hours. Keep praying until we get him to Puerto Rico and feeling strong! I am so thankful for you. You really came through on this. I knew you would, Christ be praised!

    I’ve taken this prayer out of a favorite book of mine on prayer.

    Heavenly Father, giver of life and health, comfort and relieve thy sick servant, and give thy power of healing to those who minister to their needs, that Travis, for whom our prayers are offered may be strengthened in their weakness and have confidence in thy loving care, I ask this in Jesus Christ, your loving sons name AMEN

    What a privilege to lift up Travis in prayer. To get my eyes off of myself and on the pressing needs of another. May God’s will be done and may that fever break miraculously!

    Definitely praying here, too. I’ve been very sick myself lately and know the power of prayer for healing.

    May God touch Travis and bring him back to wholeness as well as protect the rest of his dear family from illness.

    Thanks for the privilege of allowing us to pray, dear Beth.

    Father, I bless Travis with your healing power. As you were on earth and healed every single person who came to you, let Travis come to you and receive your great gifts of strength made perfect in his weakness and restored health in place of sickness. Let the fever be gone. Let healing rest come over him the moment his head hits the pillow. Let new, abundant life flood into him. Send your angels to minister to him and lighten his load as he rests. May he find that your burdens are light, as he sets his mind and spirit toward the good works you have prepared in advance for him to do. Thank you for a testimony that gives glory to You above all. In Jesus’ name.

    Healed By His Grace says:

    OK, let’s pray:
    Sweet Jesus, we thank You that You are the Lord God Almighty and that You alone can heal the sick with just a thought. Lord, we praise You for the blessings You pour over the Cottrell family and You know how hard Travis and Angela work for Your kingdom. So Lord, in the Mighty Name of Jesus and by the Power of His Blood, I bind all spirits of disease in Travis and send them to the place that Jesus desires and I ask You, Holy Spirit, to fill Travis up to overflowing, filling every tiny crevasse left vacant by the enemy, with Your healing love and strength. We love You, Lord, and we thank You for this healing of Travis. And we give You, O God, all the honor, all the praise and all the glory. In the Name and Power of Jesus, Amen and Amen!!! Believe and be healed, in the Name of Jesus, Travis!

    Be blessed, sweet Beth, and rest in the healing power of Jesus! Much love to all!

    Sorry I got this so late Beth, I’m on it! After the encouragement Travis ( and by extension Angela) has given me in his praise of our Lord, I owe him lots of intercession! Heard In Christ Alone again today and was goosebumpy all over again. Hang in there Travis and family!

    We did the first introductory session to the Stepping Up study tonight, and Travis led us in “My Passion.” I came home and read this prayer request, and my prayers go out to Travis, Angela and little Levi.

    Father, I pray that your hand would be on Travis … that out of your strength he would be healed. By Your hand that he would be held, and that by Your will that he will go out and serve. Lord, we know and believe that You can do all things and we bless Your name for that. Please bless your servant at this time by miraculously healing him.

    In Jesus’ name,

    Travis I am praying for you.

    Lord I ask for Jehovah God our healer to touch Travis’ physical body and make him well. Satan
    take your hands off this man of God for the power that is in him is greater then the power that is in this world! Father, place a holy hedge of protection around Travis and around him as he travels. Bless him and his entire clan and may God be glorified through their lives in Jesus Name

    Love to you all,
