For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)

This picture is from their mothers face book page.

Ellie & Grace are identical twins.  The only thing that Ellie has that Grace doesn't have is cancer.  This child has fought this battle so hard, and Grace has stood by her side in fear for the last two years.  I can't imagine what it would be like to watch someone that looks just like me struggle with life.  Even worse, Ellie has been given 3-6 weeks to live.  How is Grace going to look in the mirror every morning and see her sister looking back at her - how is she ever going to get through this? 

My heart is so heavy right now.  I ask you all to pray - pray for a miracle that will heal this precious child.

you can look her story up on caring bridge (Ellie Potvin) or on twitter (lift up Ellie)

Please God I lift this child up to You, I beg You for complete healing.  I am asking for a miracle.   I know that the Dr.'s have only given Ellie 3 - 6 weeks on this earth. That is why I come to You today on behalf of Ellie Potvin.  Father our Bible tells us that “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27), we hold strong to that verse Lord, because we know that You alone can heal Ellie. "For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. (Jeremiah 30:17)  I ask You today to please allow Ellie to grow up to be a woman, to stand with her twin sister on this earth for years to come.  I ask that You Lord will please remove the cancer that is hurting her little body and make her well and whole again.  I also ask You to be with her family, and her sister as they walk through this valley of darkness.  I pray that You see them through to the other side of this valley, and I pray that Ellie is still on this Earth with them and healthy.

I ask these things in the Holy name of Jesus Christ
