Hi! DAB Family!
This is Deborah in Raleigh, NC!
I have been following the Daily Audio Bible since January 1 four year ago (going into my 5th year this week!)
I love this group and pray often for the prayers that are mentioned.
I have never called in a prayer request (too shy), but would like to ask for prayer for my husband, Joel.
Joel is having huge problems with his blood sugar and has lost a lot of weight lately.
He just turned 60 and has been a type 2 diabetic for about the past 5-7 years now.
Initally he took off his excess weight (40 lbs.) and he was exercising, but his blood sugar continued to be a problem from time to time.
Joel’s system cannot tolerate milk or cheeses (He can’t digest one of the milk proteins, he’s not lactose intolerant), so we eat very plain, all-natural foods, and his body is still having problems.
He eats healthy all-natural foods (not many carbs, no sugar), but he still cannot get his blood sugar under control.
His blood sugar is regularly in the 300’s (should be 100’s) and he has days where hits the 500’s, no matter what he eats or does.
Lately he seems to be hungry all the time and eats plenty of meat, salads and vegetables, but is losing more weight.
Joel is not taking insulin and we hope that he can avoid having to do that, but I don’t know what to do to help him nor how to cook for him any more.
The doctor sent him to an endocrinologist who says Joel’s body seems to be having some kind of auto-immune reaction which is causing this issue, but we don’t know what to do for it.
Our bodies are made to heal themselves, if we take care of them and put the proper nutrition in them, but something is not working for Joel.
I am asking everyone to pray that the Lord would show us what is going on with his health and what we can do about it to heal Joel.
I want the Lord to show me how to cook for him and what we need to be eating so his body can heal and we can both live in health.

Felt Luke 8:17 was important
Dear Lord Jesus,
Shine your holy light on this situation, Lord peel back the darkness, and enter with light. Lord if you are willing shout a command for your voice is like rushing water, it is like a lion’s roar and all evil is stopped. Lord let that what is unseen be visible and remove all evil from this situation. Lord let there be a path for healing and a road for restoration, let them be complete healing, call back this illness Lord and make it retreat, bind it Lord and cast it out I pray. Lord thank you for your kindness and love. Even if what I hoped for was not give I would still only hope in you, for your love and grace covers all things. Help us see it more clearly and love you more dearly each day. Amen
