You are the group that I am asking help from. Only Christians. What is the definition of that!! Well. James 5: 16b speaks to this. “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” John 14:10-14 speaks volumes. (I do not have room to print it all out but you can read it) Matthew 7:21 reads, “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord shall enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father in heaven“. On to vs. 24, “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man….”On to vs. 26b, “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them will be like a foolish man….” (This is just a sampling of the definition I am using to call for your help.)
Some of you out there (here in the States and in other countries) have MS. My daughter has MS. It is a cruel illness. Meds on the market today are cruel in their effect on a person and their pocketbook as well.
(Let me deviate for a moment) When I moved to Prescott over a year ago, my g’daughter couldn’t sleep one night and went to her computer and began to look for the help that I was in need of to relieve the back spasms that had “graced” my back for a very long time. Urgent Care told me it was not to be found on the mountain. But Tori found it !!!! I no longer have the spasms.
Tonight, rather this morning, it is my turn, only I am coming to you Christians who have been followers of my Blog for almost seven years to ask you to pray fervently for a very small Company in the UK called LIFNano. I want to print out for you a bit of what they say.
“The LIFNano approach to MS provides therapeutic synergy for (i) suppression of auto-immune attack and (ii) repair of myelin within damaged CNS tissue.”
“LIFNano’s lead indication is to treat Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a disabling incurable auto-immune disease of the central nervous system (CNS) commonly affecting young adults and involving 100,000 people in the UK alone. Inflammatory damage to the nerve’s protective myelin sheath – demyelination – is the hallmark of MS that progressively or intermittently causes a wide range of symptoms as specific nerves become inflamed. Currently available therapies are mainly limited to immunosuppression and do not prevent progression of disease that is linked to the irreversible loss of nerves.”
“There is still a lot of work to do before clinical trials can commence (provisionally scheduled for 2020). Currently we’re remaining tightly focused on targeting Multiple Sclerosis, but we are optimistic about potential applications in the future. We are a small company and it is unlikely that we will be able to broaden the scope of our work before a couple of years.”
Those of you with MS, can keep up on clinical info by going to http://www.lifnano.com
Why I feel so strongly about this is because my husband participated in a clinical trial many years ago for Celebrex. I know from personal experience with him that the clinical trial was a God-send for us. Without Celebrex, Loren would not have been able to walk in his 80’s and 90’s. NOT AT ALL!!!!
Every trial will be different of course. I am speaking only of our experience. Not knowledge, but experience. All during the clinical trial there was no cost AT ALL to us. He did report into his Dr. twice a week so his progress could be reported to Washington. First 4 months, then 6 months, then a year, then 3 years. All this time, no cost at all to us. But constant progression in a positive way for him.
I am asking christians to please pray fervently for LIFNano. This small, little company, and also for Su Metcalfe PhD, Founder. Su discovered the role of the stem cell factor LIF in immune tolerance followed by a second discovery of the LIF/IL-6 axis in T lymphocyte lineage determination. (Don’t ask me what I have just written.). All that I know is we need the fervent prayers of Godly people who know the Lord, believe in prayer without question, knowing that we always receive our answer – sometimes it is yes – sometimes it is no – sometimes it is later. But for Christians we know and depend upon the Word of God and regardless of “how” He answers WE KNOW His way is best and we wait on Him and know that He knows already the outcome of when, where, why, how, and with whom.
A verse comes to mind and I adamantly believe it. “I want you to trust Me in your times of trouble so that I can rescue you and you can give Me the glory” Psa. 50:15.
One week from today will be my last post on my Blog so i will never again be able to speak to you as I have these moments this morning. Please. I beg you! Keep LIFNano in your prayers because somewhere, somehow, someway, some day there will be hope. Is it possible that through the fervent prayers of God’s people, we will see it in our day.
Believing with all my heart and being held in His hands, Marge
(I have emailed the Company and told them I would be praying for them and their work. If you feel led, email the Company and let them know you are doing the same.)
