    Hi All,

    This was posted on the prayer request board at Christian Forum, I thought I'd pass it along to you. The number is a real one.

    Child with cancer


    I received this e-mail today from a co-worker and wanted to share it with you all, because there is power in prayer.

    I just did this today. What a nice thing for this little boy to
    experience others lifting him up in prayer!


    This prayer request is for Joe William Sheffield, a 9 year old boy from
    Tifton, Georgia. He has been diagnosed with cancer and began his Chemo
    on
    Christmas Eve. His mother is a teacher and they attend First Baptist
    Church in Tifton. First Baptist has a program called the Prayer Beeper.
    When you pray for this child, call this toll free number 1-877-546-0248.
    Listen to the recording and input number 733#.) What happens is this
    child
    wears the beeper and every time it vibrates he knows somewhere someone
    is
    lifting him up in prayer! What a wonderful ministry. I just did this
    myself--what an awesome blessing for this little boy every time he gets
    a
    buzz...and what a blessing for us to know that we are showing him God's
    love in such a quick way. Please take a minute out of your day to say a
    prayer for Joe William...I am sure it means a lot to him and helps keep
    his spirits up every time he gets a "beep". Please pass this along to
    all
    of your friends so Joe will know that even people that don't know him
    still care enough to say a prayer for him.

    I also checked the story out on snopes and found it is a really true story (I'm such a skeptic!). Let's all lift this little boy in prayer . .

    In His love, Jeannette

    It does work and what gracious idea for passing thisalong. I will certainly be praying this child of God. May he be cured of this cancer and may many blessings come his way. Thank you Takesha. Bless you.

    Another neat thing...if you do a google search for the First Baptist Church in Tifton Georgia...you will find the website for this church and a picture and update and even an email for this little boy.
    That way you can keep track of his progress.

    This really works, Oh what a wonderful way to let this precious child know that we are all praying for him.

    I'm certainly praying for the Lord to lay His healing hands upon Joe and heal his precious body.
