Pray without Ceasing

In early 2021, I wrote this post asking the readers of Broken Believers to pray for Bryan. Once again, I am asking you to pray for him. Although doctors have determine what the issue was that seemed mysterious for so long, they are not much closer to bringing him healing. He is currently hospitalized in Alaska and has asked me to fill in here at Broken Believers when I can.

I believe the Lord still has much for Bryan to do and that He can bring healing if that serves the greater good. I also know that Bryan is not alone in the hospital because his friend Jesus is by his side. And so I offer this prayer, similar to the one I lifted in early 2021.


Heavenly Father,

I lift up to You Bryan, Your dear son and loyal servant. You know exactly what is going on in his body and in his mind. I pray for Your healing touch, for Your comfort and peace, and for Your wisdom for the doctors treating him. Lord, help him to find the perfect balance of medications and to feel well again. Return Bryan to his home with a refreshed spirit and strength to continue to serve You in whatever way You are calling him to do.

In the meantime, Lord, give Bryan rest for his body and rest for his soul. Help him to draw closer to You, Jesus, and feel Your very real presence. Lead him in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Make him to lie down in peaceful pastures and restore his soul. Let him truly know that this time of illness has not been wasted but is being and will be used by You for Your glory and his good.

I ask all these things in the precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, amen.


I hope that you will join me in praying for Bryan. I know over the years he has faithfully prayed for many of you and continues to do so. He has a heart to serve, but serving is difficult when illness strikes. Please pray that he has peace. If you would like to post your prayer in the comments, I know he would be blessed.

Your sister in Christ,
Linda K.

  1. Thank you, dear Linda, as you bring Pastor B comfort by filling in for him, and also comfort and minister to all of us.

    Hi dear Pastor B!
    Thank you for all you do, for all of us. You are a very precious child of God. Thank you for asking me if I wanted to write a post for you! I did, but sent it to you through messenger . . .and I’m not sure you got it. So sorry! So here is a little poem, for you, for now . . .

    Pastor B is leaning in
    close to You, Jesus

    placing his head
    upon Your chest

    to hear
    the Father’s heartbeat

    saying, “in Me
    you’ll find your rest”.

    1. Hi Debbie,
      Love your poem. If you have something else you’d be willing to have posted on BB, you can message it to me and I can post it. I’m sure many would be blessed.


  2. Praying for you Bryan!! I have shared your “Braided up with God” post with so many people over the years I have lost count. Abba Father speaks through you in powerful ways. No doubt He wanted to speak to many through you right there in the hospital!
