Question Of The Day

This is what kept me up in the middle of the night:

I was given a gift, a huge, ginormous, monumental gift, am I allowed to pray for more? What are my expectations to be?  Since I am a recipient of a "biggie" do I dare ask God for more?  Like, "Dear God, please let things work out good for Colleen for college - choice, loans,financing, etc".

Is that selfish?


  1. Peggy, NO it is not selfish! Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will open! Keep on keepin' on! love you, kirsten

  2. I don't think he has a book and keeps count of who got You keep on praying Peg cause everybody needs prayers=)


  3. Peg-I truly believe that prayer is the gift that God wants us to keep giving. He already knows us "Since before we were born" so its understood that HE already knows our fears,hopes,dreams - about everything. I think He would want you to continue praying for Col's future, your 20+ more years, and everything in between. I truly believe He knows how GRATEFUL you and we all are for your successful battle this past year. You,more than anybody I know, has more than earned the right to pray for "more!" We haven't stopped praying that you receive "more"-why should you? We love you!

  4. Remember...the bible says, "you have not because you ask not" and so go ahead...ask away!

  5. Hi Peggy
    I've been following your blog with interest. I had a much 'easier' cancer to deal with but I still found chemo, surgery, radiation, etc not so much fun. But to hope that you survive to see your children grow and to hopefully watch their children grow isn't too much. We all hope this.

    As for chemo when you have no evidence of disease. I'd say go for it. You'd hate yourself if it came back and you want every opportunity to survive to see those grandchildren someday.

  6. You are ALWAYS allowed and encouraged to pray for more - if you don't ask, how will he know?
