Pray for those with Multiple Myeloma


Carlton Mathews, Teresa's husband

This past week we learned our precious Teresa Mathews' husband, Carlton, has been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.  We are asking our readers to pray for Carlton and the Mathews family and to also pray for others who are battling this disease. On OWG we previously posted about how the Mathews family was given provision by God in 1999 to get through a great many trials, including when Carlton had cancer.

There are several organizations that address this illness One is the International Myeloma Association.  IMA has publications and something called the Myeloma Minute a free email newsletter.  The American Cancer Association also has a section for Multiple Myeloma. Of course we are directing our attention to the Great Healer and His Word, as well.

Will you join me in lifting up Carlton, Teresa, and their sons? Will you commit to praying weekly for them as God brings about full healing?  Let's also pray for other families battling this illness, particularly for those who need to know the Lord.  I don't know why God is allowing the Mathews family to go through this valley but I do know He will be with them. And I know He will use it for their good. Valley times are not fun times they are growth journeys in Christ. Please surround Teresa, Carlton, and their sons with prayers and an encouraging word.

Can you please leave a prayer for Carlton and those suffering with myeloma?

  1. Heavenly Father, you know how much we love Bro. Carlton and Sis. Teresa. They have blessed and encouraged so many and I ask you to encourage them through this dark time as well. Lord, grant them peace, strength, and healing. You're still the same God that parted the Red Sea, healed the blind man, and caused the lame to walk. You're still the same yesterday, today, and forever, and there is no shadow of turning with thee. We are asking you for a miracle for Bro. Carlton and all those suffering with Myeloma, and as your Word declares in Mark 11:23 to speak to the mountain, I speak to this mountain of sickness in Carlton's body and say, "Be thou removed you foul spirit of cancer and be cast into the sea" and You promised we would have what we say if we don't doubt. We thank you in advance for all that you are going to do, in the precious name of your beloved son, Jesus Christ, by whose stripes we are healed! Thank you, Jesus! Hallelujah!

  2. Lord comfort this wonderful family and be with Carlton as he fights this disease. Just as you brought me through BC almost 20 years ago, you can do the same for Carlton. Sometimes you need us to walk THROUGH the fire to show your mighty powers, but God is always walking beside us and/ or carrying us through. Prayers for Teresa's family, as well as ALL who must walk this path of cancer. We also pray that you will provide the money needed for these treatments...
    Amen

  6. Praying for your entire family, Teresa, and will continue to do so - prayers for complete healing, doctor's wisdom, peace, strength, encouragement, and finances. God's plan and timing are perfect, He is so faithful and tells us to rejoice and give thanks even during the trials - trials bring blessings and growth through Him. Praying you feel the Savior's arms around you and the love and hugs being sent your way by all those that love you!!

    KNOW Carlton and Teresa, YOU ARE LOVED!

    Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. I John 4:7-8

    Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; Deuteronomy 7:9

    Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39

    The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Jeremiah 31:3

    Ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Psalms 97:10

    And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, Deuteronomy 7:13

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3: 16

  8. O Father of mercies and God of all comfort, our only help in time of need: We humbly beseech thee to behold, visit and relieve thy sick servant Carlton, for whom our prayers are desired. Look upon him with the eyes of thy mercy; comfort him with a sense of thy goodness; preserve him from the temptations of the enemy; and give him patience under his affliction. In thy good time, restore him to health, and enable him to lead the residue of his life in thy fear, and to thy glory; and grant that finally he may dwell with thee in life everlasting; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
