I shook all over as I phoned her immediately, I sobbed as I said, "Jeanine, I prayed for you on my face before God over and over when you lost those precious children! And now you are praying for me!" I insisted then as I still insist now that our losses could not possibly be compared. Michael is still very much alive. My name doesn't belong in the same paragraph as hers. In no way was our suffering similar. What was similar was our resolve to make it in Christ no matter what came our way. We have built a long-distance friendship on that similarity. Neither one of us could fathom how the Lord had woven our lives together through praying for absolute strangers...yet sisters in the body of Christ. When I began this book and planned this chapter, I knew I couldn't do it without Jeanine. She is proof positive that we can survive any loss and trust God to sustain us, restore us, and eventually even grant us joy, purpose and abundant life. When I asked if I could use her tender story and the Scripture to which she cleaved in her devastation, she wrote: I consider this a joyous occasion to be able to share the Scriptures that God has used to bring about healing. . . I asked God many years ago to please use me in any way that might glorify His name and in a way that would bring comfort to those in pain. At this point in my life, I feel that God has brought me to a place where 2 Corinthians 1: 3-4 is very real and a part of who I am: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received." That's part of what my ministry on this earth is all about. I can never say that I am glad to have lost my children or even that I think God planned it this way. But I can say that my losses have turned out to be strengths in my life and I do consider it a privilege to serve God in the matter He has seen fit in my life. What I want more than anything is to know God in an intimate way, and to serve Him and to share with everyone I possibly can that Jesus Christ is Lord and that this can be a wonderful life on earth, but nothing compared to what is ahead for us in glory. This time the letter was signed, not by a stranger and not just by a friend, but also by a hero.

Love, Jeanine

What Is A Personal Intercessory Team

A P.I.T. Crew is a team of intercessors providing God guided prayer coverage for you and your ministry on a regular basis.

If you say, “Well I don’t have a ministry.” Then be transformed by the renewing of your mind, (Romans 12:2) because YOU HAVE A MINISTRY. You just need to step into it by faith and God will open it.


  • We are called by God to Pray For One Another (James 5:16)

The first part of this remarkable Prayer Story, I’ve just shared, clearly demonstrates what God did when both Beth and Jeanine were immediately obedient to pray for one another. Establishing your PIT Crew invites people to pray for you and you will see God brings huge Boomerang Blessings~ ones that come right back~ when you pray for someone.

  • Your prayers have impact beyond what you can ask or imagine. (Ephesians 3:20)
    Watch for IGNITE next month as this story unfolds into the next generation! This is one that we get to see a little of what God does when His children pray! Be inspired at what God is doing through your prayers and your PIT Crew praying for you that we do not see in the physical realm but know by faith that God is doing in multi dimensional realms.
