The Power of Prayer has never been more apparent, especially to Internet Marketers this week.
It has been a very difficult week for many, as a community gets hit with the reminder that the time to live is right now, and tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.
It also drives home the message that your health is above all.
It started with the news that Jason Oman, my personal mentor for my drive for an Amazon bestseller, had been taken to the hospital, and rushed in for emergency surgery.
It started with a few head aches, and revealed a Brain Aneuryism. This is the same type of disease that struck John Ritter down in a few hours, and resulted in his death.
The word spread out Internet Marketing style, and multiple messages appeared in our inboxes with the fury and determination of a typical product launch. Only in this case, it Location Cache Valley Bank was the news, the appeal for prayers, and then a mass appeal for a concerted effort with details of a mass prayer session.
It would be my guess, no matter what your beliefs, that you jumped immediately on board, to give your prayers and powerful thoughts and positive energy. Together a community banded to send Jason what he needed most – which was our love.
Throughout the days, and during the surgery, we continued our vigil, until at last the news was released 4 days after it started, that he was in recovery. We had all ignored the possibility of death, and 30% chance of recovery, and let prayer take over.
This was a fabulous example of not only the power of prayer, but something I have eluded to before, and that is the power and care of the internet marketing community.
Then, during this same time as I attended the Bookwise and Authorwise Bestseller convention and conference, Robert Allen gets struck with a serious eye issue. As his baby and company launch for its first ever convention, he undergoes mini surgery just to attend the President’s supper, as an interim solution to the surgery he will undergo the next day for a detached retina.
That evening the prayers start, over 1 million messages go out on behalf of Bob through powerful prayer chains. It is an amazing experience. The next day, as the conference opens at the time of his surgery, we all pray. We band together to create a combined effort for his immediate recovery.
And again, to our gratefulness, not only does he recover, and show up that very evening like a pirate of the carribean, he is in full form, and the surgery results are being called miraculous.
It has been a wonderful week for our community, and I was honoured to be a part of it.
Prayers and blessings for all who need them.
