More "prayer polish" for Lorelei
Prayer changes things.
I’ve heard that said many times over the years and I’ve come to believe it. Someone else I know believes in the power of prayer — and that steadfastness has helped because she is facing the challenge of her life.
I’m talking about Lorelei Decker, the 17-year-old featured in my story on the cover of today’s Life section in The Oklahoman.
I looked forward to meeting Decker and her mom Andrea and I discussed my anticipation with a few of my colleagues who sit near me at the office.
I already knew the recent Putnam City graduate was a thoughtful and optimistic person. Battling Hodgkin lymphoma with a grace and dignity far beyond her years, she began collecting ”prayer polish” earlier this year. She said so many people wanted to help her in some way when they found out she was fighting cancer. She said she decided to ask for nail polish and said it was an easy way people could show her that she was in their prayers. In turn, Decker said she began praying for them, painting her nails different shades each week to remind herself of peoplewho gave her the polish and their specific prayer needs.
