My Story of Healing - Scott Peters

I love this church. I love this place we call First Christian Church of Edmond.  Last spring I was faced with health issues that threatened my life.  Yes, this is a story of healing, but it’s also a story of love expressed by many.  As I prepared to write this story, I dug out the stack of cards I received leading up to and after my open-heart surgery.  I saved each and every one of them.  As I read through the countless cards, tears filled my eyes.  Please know these cards mean as much to me today as the day I received them - cards expressing love, support, encouragement, prayers of thanksgiving, comfort, peace and healing.  I received countless flowers and plants, which brightened our home during my recovery process, and a custom made pillow signed by Sunday school classmates and friends from around the church.    Your prayers and notes of encouragement accelerated my recovery process.

I am so honored to be one of your Elders.  I love being a part of the Tuesday morning Elder Prayer Meeting.  It gives me a chance to write note cards expressing my love and support for our congregation and their family and friends.  I know what it means to be on the receiving end of these cards.  I can’t begin to tell you how blessed my family is to be a part of this church community.  Amy and I are so grateful for what this body of Christ has brought to our daughter Alex.  I know this foundation of faith will carry us through life’s most difficult situations.  I encourage you to pray for one another - “let your request be made know to God” – Phil 4:6

"Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." - Philippians 4:6 NRSV

Reflection Question:
How do you experience the living Body of Christ?

Hearer of our Prayers,
Encourage us to trust you.
Teach us to support each other.
And in all things, help us to show Christ love.
