Default My brother, a 24 year military veteran needs the power of the TBH Prayer warriors....

My friends....I come to you asking for prayers for my middle brother, Jeremy... The power of the TBH prayers warriors has come through many times and I hope for the same here. As I have posted in here before, in several military related threads, Jeremy is a 24 year military veteran and he did two tours in Iraq. He retired, went to work in the civilian world and had been enjoying living the civilian life, when life served him up the toughest battle of his life.

As many of y'all have seen a few weeks ago, I started a TBH PSA thread on getting your colonoscopies done if you were due or have some family history. I have been on several of my buddies and TBHers after having my own done and "fears of the prep" squashed. However, the main reason for my starting it was that some of our worst fears as a family came to pass and are no confirmed. About a month ago, Jeremy (age 50) started experiencing bouts of stomach pain, and through a diagnostic colonoscopy the large mass was found. Subsequent scans showed that it had also spread to his liver and he has some abnormal lymph nodes. He recently underwent a successful colectomy to remove the mass and part of his colon as well as biopsy anything they needed.. It was not an easy surgery. Due to the mass' location and subsequent complications, the doctors could not use the laparoscopic technique. He has a nice set of stitches from his sternum to his waistline now. The recovery has been difficult due to the invasiveness of the surgery, but he is working hard to regain his strength to begin the next step of his fight. After speaking with his oncologist, he has been listed at Stage 4 and will be going through chemotherapy treatments at MD Anderson in Houston. He will also be having additional surgeries on his liver to remove the cancer spots. This will all be followed up by further treatments of chemotherapy to hopefully KCA. The whole initial battle is estimated to take the better part of a year.

We as a family ask the prayers warriors to do their thing here as it has been successful so many times before......and with Mary and Michael's permission, I am going to add a gofundme link below created to help him and his new wife to ease the burden of this battle with additional medical costs, travel, hotel and time away from work. This is his story... please pray, share, donate ....whatever you can do to help him in his fight. God Bless you all and thank you from the Smart family.

Hate hearing that Jason and know the feeling well of a very close family member going through cancer. I've been running back and forth with my wife to Houston all summer long with surgeries with her cancer and still am. Prayers on the way up for your brother and tell him I said thank you for his service!

Prayers sent for Jeremy and the Smart family. My mom beat Stage 4 colon cancer and is doing great today. Your brother is obviously one tough man and with God, family and many prayers, he’ll KCA.

And you’re spot on about spreading the word about getting your colonoscopy. It’s not that bad at all. And it can save your life.

Father, we know that you alone are sovereign over all things. You created all things and you are sustaining all things. We know that our life came from you and our healing comes from you. The very air we breathe belongs to you. We believe that you hear the prayers of your children and that there is power in prayer. That the fervent prayers of your children can activate powers from heaven and we can see your miracles being released and changing lives. So Dad, we are lifting up your son, Jeremy Smart, and asking you to move Father. We are asking that you would stretch out your mighty hand and remove this cancer from him. That you would destroy the abnormal cells causing these growths and that you would strengthen his immune system in the days ahead so that his health may be restored. Father, we are standing in faith, with full expectation, that we will witness your healing powers whether they be supernaturally or through the hands of your creation. We ask that you would bless and guide the medical staff and be with them as the treat Jeremy. We ask that you would pour your Spirit out over the Smart family and that your presence would be so overwhelming that anxieties and fears would have to flee. That you would flood the atmosphere around them with your love and your peace. We ask the things and are believing in these things. In Christ name, Amen!

Lord God in Heaven and Creator of the universe and all that is in it, we come to You Father asking for a great healing and for overwhelming mercies upon the Smart family. Lord we thank You for raising up brave men like Jeremy who are willing to give themselves up for our freedoms and the liberties that we enjoy. We ask You Lord to heal this man and restore him to his family as a witness of Your power and authority. Father, guide the hands of his care team to do Your healing work. Give them wisdom to lay out a plan according to Your will and the skills and tools necessary to carry that plan of healing out to its fullest. Lord we ask You for an extra measure of peace over this family that they may be calm and at peace with the coming trials knowing that You are working Your plan on Jeremy. Give them strength to persevere and yet lean upon Your strength to guide them through these coming trials. Lord we thank You for our brother Jason as well, for the healing work You have done for him, and we ask Lord that You give him strength to lead the family through and maintain the eternal family bonds with You Lord. Guide him as he leads his family through this that they all may be witnesses for You Lord. Keep them from harm and give them that extra measure of protection as they spend long hours traveling back and forth on the roads to be at Jeremy's side. We ask these things in the powerful healing name of Jesus our Savior, Amen.


Jason, you holler brother if I can be of assistance.
