Lifted in Prayer

A dear friend has been sick for many, many years.  She recently went through a serious surgery.  I mentioned to someone that I was planning a visit.  Although I don’t know the person well, he paused and said, “my family and I will lift her up in prayer.”   Having never heard that phrase before, I was moved beyond words.  The thought of lifting her up in prayer felt so right.
I now visualize her literally “lifted” and “held” by everyone she has ever known, including her ancestors.  As I do this, I imagine the loving restoration of calm and her improved health.
