Steve, Thx for the encouragement. Amen, Amen, and Amen on your response to "the Lord brings healing". He is still the Sovereign! Amen!? DG -----Original Message----- From: Steven G.

Praying for Charlie's friend as well. Dale I thought you were one of the 'old' guys on the forum (or perhaps I should say 'more mature'). 20 years out of HS, you are just ahead of me. You often display wisdom beyond your years. I agree that the Lord brings healing, sometimes despite the circumstances and in ways and for reasons we will never understand. E.g. take Bob's situation below - if the church folk were praying for Bob's healing and he died and no one was praying for the drunk and he is healed and lives - we must trust that God has His reasons and purpose and ultimately He will be glorified in all things. Jeff, you raise a good question -that I have not really thought about. I believe Satan has power to work wonders - but does he who is the father of death have the power and authority to heal or can he only destroy (ultimately).
