  4. Lord, we know Coleman is in your hands, but we desperately desire that You touch him now and heal his body. Please allow the bleeding to be controlled. God, You know exactly what will do it - give the doctor's the wisdom to know what to do.

    Isaiah 40:28-31
    Do you not know?
    have you not heard?
    Yahweh is the everlasting God, the Creator of hte whole earth.
    He never grows fiant or weary;
    There is no limit to His understanding.
    He gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless.
    Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men may stumble and fall,
    But those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength;
    They will soar on wings like eagles;
    They will run and not grow weary;
    They will walk and not faint.

    may it be

  5. Father God,
    Moses pleaded with you on behalf of the Israelites...we, Coleman's brothers and sisters in Christ, plead with you on behalf of Coleman. The Drs. are perplexed not sure where to turn...but we know the ONLY place to turn is to you, our Healer, our Savior, our Lord. Please place your healing touch on Coleman. Amen

  15. again, I tell you that if two or more people on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. where two or more come together in my name, there I am with them. Matt 18;19-20.

    Mark 16:17&18 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name, they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

    Jer 30:17 For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, saith the Lord.

    Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    1 John 4:4 Greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.

    I believe if everyone puts their faith together, this whole situation will turn around. Speak the Word to Coleman. Command the devil to take his hands off of Coleman's body. I pray Coleman will be healed from head to toe.


  16. Lord, please bring Coleman through this. We need him to stay here with us. Please strengthen him and his family through this time of need.

    Amanda K.

  17. Father, I lift Coleman up to you for healing in this moment. Keep him with us. Keep him fighting.

    In Jesus' name, Amen.

    Belinda and Eric, I am thinking of you and praying for you in every moment. Hang in there. God's hands are still wrapped around your precious boy!

  18. We are praying each and everyday for your recovery. We believe that the bleeding is going to stop and we pray that the doctors will help pull you through this tough road you and your family are going through.

  19. Eric and Belinda, the words to this song keep coming to mind, perhaps they can give you (as they have given me in many dark times) a measure of comfort and strength.

    Every day the Lord himself is near me
    With a special mercy for each hour
    All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me
    He whose name is Counselor and Power
    The protection of His child and treasure
    Is a charge that on Himself He laid
    "As your days, your strength shall be in measure"
    This the pledge to me He made

    Help me then in every tribulation
    So to trust Your promises, O Lord
    That I lose not faith's sweet consolation
    Offered me within Your Holy Word
    Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting
    E'er to take as from a Father's hand
    One by one the days the moments fleeting
    Till I reach the Promised Land

  20. Monica (Wallace) BriscoeDecember 15, 2008 at 8:14 PM

    Belinda, I am praying for you to have strength and peace in the midst of this anguish. You have always been a WONDERFUL mother-- someone I watched from a distance and admired. I know God is pouring Himself into you at this time as He has done so many times and for many different circumstances. Coleman is so blessed to have you at his side. I know he is drawing strength from you and Eric. We continue to pray for all of you. Our church family is also lifting you up. Hang in there.

  21. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:14-16

    Praise the Lord, O my soul and forget not all his benefits - who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion Psalm 103:3-4

    Coleman I lift you up in prayer and ask God to heal your body, to strike out the disease and toxins, to stop the bleeding to heal you completely, that you may be a testament of God's grace and mercy, I ask God for the miracle of your healing for he is a merciful God.

    Coleman I'm just waiting on you to bake the Christmas cookies that you, Jordan and I baked together last year. You have to remember the huge cookies that were shaped as a C and a J for you and Jordan, and after they were done, you couldn't stop eating them, I believe that you probably ate about 20 during the day, just couldn't stop eating them is what you told me. So, son I'm waiting for you to help Jordan and I again this year, keep up the fight, we love you and are praying for your healing.

    Please come home to us.

    Belinda & Eric,

    I pray for your strength and guidance from God.

    Debbie & Mike

  22. Dear Jesus please be beside Coleman in this struggle. Please keep him with us.I ask you to please take Coleman into your hands and heal him of all. He needs you more than ever.

  23. Coleman, if you need to rest, then rest; if you can fight, then please fight. My world will be forever missing something if your smile is not in it. You are so loved. I want to ask you to stay. I want you to come home, get married, and live a long and happy life. I am asking God for this constantly, but if I am being selfish, then please forgive me. You have fought so long and so hard. So I ask God to hold you tight, and to hold your Momma and Daddy tight. I ask Him to take away your pain, to strengthen you spirit, and to comfort you. Dear Father, give Coleman such a sense of the presence of Your love that there is no room for fear. Help him, in every sense of the word, to feel Your love, his parents’ love, his families’ love, his friends’ love. Heal him with Your love.

    Father, I worry so over Eric and Belinda. I know they have been chosen because their faith is so real, so strong, and so beautiful, but You are asking so much of them. Carry them, Father. Renew them. Comfort them as they comfort Coleman. Give them the wisdom, strength, and endurance to finish this race, as long as it takes. Help them, Father.

  24. I don't usually pray,
    But I have for coleman.

    hang in there.
    Jordan's not the only one who needs you.

  25. Heavenly Father, I lift up Coleman to you. I ask that you would heal his body. Give the doctors wisdom, and discernment. Cause him to be healthy Lord, and to recover quickly. Give him long life. In Jesus name, Amen.

  26. Coleman, Belinda & Eric,
    My love is surrounding you and I am holding you in my arms. I love you all so very much. You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that God will stop this excessive bleeding in Coleman's body. Coleman is being loved, prayed for and held up to the Lord by so many people. I hope and pray that you all feel comforted in this your hour of need. Keep fighting and being strong! You have an army of love and prayer fighting with you. I LOVE YOU! Cindi

  27. Lord, please place your hands on the doctors to guide them in the right direction for Coleman's healing. Give strength to Belinda and Eric. Bless the family and many friends that await the good news that Coleman will soon be out of danger. We love you and praise you!

    Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

    Lori S.

  28. Coleman, this is Grandma Shirley. I know that you know how much I love you and how proud I am of you, but I wanted your mom to tell you that again for me. God is with you always.

  29. I doubt Coleman remembers me, but I've been praying for him & you, Eric & Belinda. I've also rallied many prayer warriors to pray for you all. Per Ps 46:1, May God be your refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. In His Love, Lois Gregg

  30. Belinda,
    Karol and I are praying for you and Eric so much. You are a wonderful mother and Coleman is so blessed to have you in his life. We pray God gives you all that you need in these incredibly difficult times. We love you both.

    Your journey through this illness has undoubtedly changed so many peoples hearts. You are a hero! We are praying for you constantly. We love you so much.

    I love you and am praying for you to continue to find the strength to be faithful and resilient. Find comfort in all the wonderful times you have had with Coleman(you guys were always having so much fun). If you need anything, I'm here.

    NYC is "Rooting for Coleman"!

  31. Coleman,
    You don't know me, my daughter Jordan is a friend and fellow cheerleader of your Jordan's. Please know there are so many people in Coweta praying for you. Several coworkers, our family members and friends are praying around the clock for you. We pray for your strength as well as your family's... and for Jordan's.
    Even though we have yet to meet you, you have touched our hearts!

    Please get well and come home!
    Kim Murphy

  32. Eric & Belinda - I'm a friend of Beth's here in Enid. I've been praying for Coleman. My son Tommy and Cameron are best friends and Tommy has met Coleman several times. I have a former minister that is a missionary in Berlin, Germany. His wife has been in contact with a Dr. that is a very strong Christian. Dr. Paul will be coming to see you at the hosspital on Tuesday to pray for Coleman. I've been trying to find someone that would be able to come be with you for some hands on spiritual comfort. My missionary friend has been in fervent prayer for Coleman and believes that God wants to show his power in his healing. I pray that Dr. Paul will be able to connect with you on Tuesday and you will all be blessed by his fellowship. -Kay DeWall

  33. -By His Stripes we are healed.
    -For I will restore health unto you and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saidth the Lord.
    -Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all of his benefits: who forgiveth all thine inquities: WHO HEALS ALL THY DISEASES: who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with kingkindess and tender mercies; who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

    We are standing on the Word of the Most High God, Jesus Christ. We pray in agreement, claiming and affirming in Jesus Christ's name for the complete and total healing of Coleman's physical body from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet. In the name of Jesus Christ, we rebuke the disease, sickness, and all matter of evil that comes upon Coleman and his family. We bind all evil and cast it along with the disease and sickness into the fire pit. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray for the healing of every cell, every tissue, every organ, and every bodily system so Coleman will be restored to complete and total health. You are a miracle God and we know and believe and trust that You can bring to past this that we ask of You. We also pray for this dear mother and father. Oh dear, Jesus Christ, please hold them in Your Arms asa mother holds her child, tender and close. Please dear Jesus Christ send Your Angels to minister to Coleman and this family. In Jesus Christ's name, we ask that Your Most Powerful and Strongest Guardian Angels will encircle and protect Coleman and his parents right this minute. In Jesus Christ's name we ask all of these things. We will be careful to give You Lord the Honor and Praise. In Jesus Christ's name we pray. Amen

  34. Heavenly father, we lift Coleman up to you, and we know that you died on the cross for us and by your stripes we are healed. I pray for wisdom for those who are treating Coleman, and a supernatural healing that is taking place in his body. We give you all the praise....

    May Belinda and Eric be comforted and be at peace.

    May all his family be given a peace in their spirit father. It is in JESUS mighty name that I pray.

    Teala McKenzie

  35. May God hold Coleman and his family in the palm of his hands. Comfort them, guide them in the choices they have to make and give them hope.

  36. Lord, I pray for Your healing touch on Coleman. Make every part of his body function the way You designed it to. Guide the doctor's thoughts and hand to do Your work.

    2 Kinds 20:5 I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears, surely I will heal you.

    Lots of love!

  37. God,

    No words will express the fear, pain or worry that anyone here is dealing with right now. Our hearts scream out in this time of need, lay your hands on Coleman and his family tonight. Reassure your children, give them peace of mind and let them breath deeply. Comfort these people right now, lord.

    We ask right now, God, that you take these illnesses from the body you've giving Coleman- that you hold his hand and keep him strong though this trial and that you show his loved ones the peace that we know only you can give them. God, I pray that you take away all the fear that this family is fighting against right now. Show yourself to them, help them to hand this situation over to you, God.

    Coleman, we love you. We all know how strong you are- but everyone needs rest. This worldly body is nothing compared to the one we will all receive in heaven, and as badly as we all want you to stay here- we all want you to be happy and free. Smile, sweetheart. Whatever happens, we're all with you and you hold a special place in all of our hearts.


    Hold your head up high, take pride in the impact that your son has made in all of our lives. Know that God will keep your family in his arms. Smile, because all things are planned. Cry, because it's your right as a mother and a caring person. But I think that the most important thing that you can do right now is to Let go and let God. My thoughts, prayers and love is with you.


  38.

  39. Coleman,

    This is Amanda K's mom. Myself, Amanda, Pete & Brittany have had you in our constant thoughts. It is quite evident how many lives your personality has touched in this world. You are a unique, strong, brave young man. I know that if anyone can pull through this, it is you! I have all the faith in the world that you can do this. Stay strong & keep fighting!


  40. Dearest Lord,

    We praise you and thank You tonight that there is but one Mediator between God and man, our Lord Jesus Christ. We thank you that we know without question that our prayers go straight to You because of Jesus Christ.

    We praise You and thank You for giving us the confidence of knowing that no matter how hard we are praying for Coleman, that Jesus sits always at your right hand, praying for him too. Oh, to hear those prayers, Lord! How awesome His words to You must be!

    Dear Lord, we praise You and thank You that the world is watching tonight, and that there may be countless people reading this blog who do not know You as their Lord and Savior.

    They have not surrendered their lives in obedience to Jesus Christ, yet they are getting to see what a true walk with Him looks like, as they witness the faith of this community of believers.

    Lord, draw them to you, won't you please. Connect them with someone on this blog who can share the good news of Jesus Christ with them in Spirit and in Truth. Let them know how precious they are to You, and that You sent Your Son to pay their sin debt so that they would have the assurance of eternal life, just as Coleman does.

    Coleman knows, as do his family and friends, that if he is called from this body, he will be present with You.

    Lord, sustain Belinda and Eric tonight...let them know that there are so many praying with and for them, Father.

    God, please be so close to Emil and Heather and Erica and Hailey and the Larsens and Mary Ann and Kelly...and all of the many family and friends whose names You know. Lord, help Coleman's sisters to understand and to trust in You.

    Lord, be with Coleman's grandparents, please. Comfort them tonight.

    And Father, please...hold Jordan close to You. Let her know without question that You love her and will never leave her nor forsake her. Surround her with people who love her, Father.

    It's in the life-changing, precious name of Jesus that we pray, You be the glory!

    Belinda..I love you.

  41. Lord may you give a double portion of the gift you gave to Elijah onto Dr. Paul. May we see You and trust only in You. At the speaking of your name, the great I AM, may all our knees bend and our hands raise to the heavens glorifing our Lord and Saviour. I thank you for each doctor and nurse that have been in your service. Give them your heavenly peace.

  42. hey buddy i know you are a fighter keep it up you are going to get out of that bed even if i have to come help you out of it you mean so much to me and my family you keep dreaming about that supra you always talked about when you called me.

    this is my prayer for you

    Lord, thank you for your loving kindness and tender mercies towards your children. Thank
    you for being a God who wants His people to be whole. Lord, I ask that you intervene and help Coleman.I am confident that you will deliver him because you not only hear but
    answer prayers. Thank you for the answer in Jesus Precious Name. Amen

  43. Psalm 62:5-8
    I find rest in God; only He gives me hope.
    He is my rock and my salvation. He is my defender; I will not be defeated.
    My honor and salvation come from God. He is my might rock and my protection.
    People, trust God all the time. Tell Him all your problems, because God is our protection.

    Eric, you have always exhibited integrity, grace under pressue and compassion, and I know you and Belinda are now being stretched to your limits. Please know that your family loves you and stands by you now in spirit and in prayer. May God be your protection, and Coleman's protection.

  44. Prayers are being sent from Sydney and I. We want to let you all know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    -Mary and Sydney

  45. My prayers are with you and him.


    You are one strong woman to stay by his side. My prayers go to you. I'm a fellow military fiancee and I can only imagine being in your place. Stay strong. My fiance is in the Air Force and I told him about Coleman. His entire flight and dorm is praying for you, him and his family.

    Stay strong, It's in God's hands and he WILL make sure that he is okay. Have faith and stay strong.

  46. Lord, you are Able. You are mighty. You are all-sufficient, all-knowing, all-powerful. Without You we are nothing. Thank you that You saw fit to send Your Son to die in our place that we might be forever in your presence. Thank you that you have called Coleman "Beloved". Thank you that he means more to You than even those that love him most will ever know. Thank you that You are touched with the feeling of his infirmities. He is not alone. You have counted Coleman worthy to suffer for Your sake. Bear him up, Lord. Please, Most Gracious Heavenly Father, be glorified in his healing. Fill the hearts and minds of his family and his Jordan with Your perfect love which casts out fear. May they know Your peace. Lord, please minister especially to Jordan's heart right now. Her pain is great. Give her strength to endure the unendurable. Please Father, allow she and Coleman to glorify You in their lives TOGETHER! You are ABLE. In the precious name of Jesus. Amen.

  50. Coleman, Belinda and Eric,
    I lift up my eyes to the hills- where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

    Lord, Jesus we lift Coleman up to you tonight for the healing of the many areas of his body that continue to fail him or cause other complications. Lord, we plead with you to give the doctors Your divine insight that only you can impart that will allow Coleman's body to be healed. Lord, God Almighty carry Coleman, Belinda and Eric through this battle. Wrap your arms around them and give them strength, comfort and peace that passes ALL understanding.

    We pray for all of your family that they too will find comfort and rest in our Lord Jesus Christ's When we pray for Coleman we see his sparkling eyes and his precious "smile."

    Blessed be the name of the Lord.
