Praying With The Pastor “Diabetes”


“In 2015, 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes.  Approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes…About 193,000 Americans under age 20 are estimated to have diagnosed diabetes…Diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the United States…”    – American Diabetes Association

Dear Friends,

Join me this week in praying for all those in our nation, and throughout the world, who suffer from diabetes, and the many health complications it causes.

Blessings, Pastor Basile

“But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the LORD.”  (Jeremiah 30:17)

A Prayer

 Lord, I come before you today in need of your healing hand.  In you all things are possible.  Hold my heart within yours, and renew my mind, body, and soul…You gave us life, and you also give us the gift of infinite joy.  Give me the strength to move forward on the path you’ve laid out for me.  Guide me towards better health, and give me the wisdom to identify those you’ve placed around me to help me get better.  In your name I pray, Amen.
