Dear DAB Family,
My name is Guy Desjardins. Have been a DAB listener for about 4 years now…
In summary, ITP is a rare autoimmune condition that can be as challenging to pronounce as it is to live with. Characterized by low blood platelet counts, you may hear ITP called by its original name of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura. Historically, “idiopathic” was used because the cause of the condition was unknown. Today we know ITP is caused by the body’s immune system destroying healthy platelets that leads to easy or excessive bruising and bleeding, in addition to initiating a daily roller coaster of emotions and ongoing medical management.
I was diagnosed with ITP since November 2017 and been on treatment since that time. Doctors say the “workaround” solution is to have my spleen removed. Have been putting that off since the doctor made that recommendation in early 2018. I have been praying for complete healing as the removal of the spleen is only 78-82% successful as far as the platelets go.
Going back to the hospital every Friday to get a “shot” to keep my platelet with a safe range, has been tiring and it really ties me to staying locally and not doing any traveling.
Please pray for me and for a COMPLETE healing of this disorder that has afflicted me. Ultimately its God who has the perfect plan for me and I do accept what ever that may be. Thank you DAB Family for praying for me.

Heavenly Father, I stand beside this son you created in your own image to glorify and serve you as only he can. I pray that you would heal this son of this autoimmune disorder, fully and completely, as he has requested. I further pray that you will give him your mind, that you would speak your wisdom to his heart so that he can discern your will regarding the pathways to healing that are yours. Give this son the ability to be still and hear your voice. Grant him clarity about his beliefs concerning healing. If the suffering he is enduring is something you have allowed for the perfecting of his faith, then I pray that you would reveal this to him. Father, we place the life and health of this son on your holy altar, asking for your healing touch on him and for your anointing of him for the calling you are placing on the rest of his life. We praise you, Lord, that you are our Healer, our Comforter, our constant Companion, as we suffer any kinds of affliction. We thank you for the gift of your Son, Jesus Christ, by whose stripes we are healed.gsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17

Rak Chazak! we cry as we go into battle on behalf of our brother, Guy. Standing in agreement with these prayers. Lord, we ask for Your divine touch on our brother’s body. Heal him completely and give him a ministry through all this suffering. Bless and encourage him. We also pray that one day, soon, he will be able to travel more than one day’s away from his home medical team. ~gailgsimoninPrayers: 2260Requests: 17
