Dear Lord,

 

TY that April's labs were pretty good. The May labs get drawn tomorrow. I pray all will be well + nothing will be out of normal range. May this kidney work well for the rest of my life.

 

TY that my energy level has been better the past few mos. Praises! May this continue.

 

May I cont. to heal where the L hip was replaced. It's taking so long to get stronger. TY that at least I don't feel so tentative walking + don't need the cane anymore. I pray soon I'll be able to go up stairs normally.

 

I pray for all the other health problems. TY for helping me to cope with them. I pray for healing, according to Your will.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Drei, Jesus said “according to your faith be it unto you.” If any person believes it’s God’s will to be sick, have disease and be in pain, then that’s what they will experience, even though God has revealed His will through Jesus. Isaiah 53, Matthew 8:16,17 and 1 Peter 2:24 reveals the will of God for you. Kick the devil to the curb and declare that by the stripes of Jesus you are healed! Jesus came to set the captives free. You are free. BE FREE! Be Healed! Be Whole! Live that abundant life Jesus said He came to give...In the HERE and NOW.

Take the Word of God in your mouth and execute the judgment written against the devil then praise and thank the Lord for His goodness, grace and mercy over your life. YOU ARE LOVED!!! God is your Father. Jesus said, “You’ve seen Me, you’ve seen the Father” Jesus went about DOING GOOD and healing all that were oppressed of the devil for God was with Him. You see that. God said healing is doing good, and sickness and disease and pain was called oppression.

Dear Lord,

 

I haven't called to get my labs bc of the busyness with moving. I'll call tomorrow. May all be well + may this kidney work well the rest of my life.

 

TY for the energy You've given me lately. That is a positive sign in terms of kidney health.

 

I cont. to pray for all the other innumerable health issues.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY + praises that the labs improved overall! I'm beyond thankful. May they remain good in the coming months + years + may this kidney work well for the rest of my life.

 

I cont. to pray for healing from the neuropathy, arthritis, muscle atrophy, weakness, the hiatal hernia, the esophagitis/ulcers, + every other malady that plagues me.

 

I pray for better sleep as well.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

It's that time again- monthly labs will be drawn Sat. The last set was pretty good. I pray the next set will be at least as good, if not better.

 

TY that I have a decent amt. of energy. I still have a great deal to do to settle into this new apt., in addition to other pressing details. Help me to have the energy to take care of them all + not overlook anything.

 

Protect my esophagus from cancer- it still has an ulcer + isn't healing. Protect the kidney transplant- may it work well for the rest of my life, + may that be a good amt. of time yet. Part of me wants to depart this earth--it's so dreadful seeing what's happening to our country--but I want to be here for B + A. Keep me as healthy + independent as possible.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Father in heaven,

 

I stand in agreement with DB prayer.

Please bless this person with good health, and heal them.

Bless this kidney to work well for the rest of their life.

Bind up that cancer spirit and let no cancer or plague come nigh this person.

Heal them totally and give them long life and Your salvation. Amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY for all the miracles You've given me over the years. We are told to pray boldly, so I ask for good health in spite of the endless obstacles standing in my way.

 

May tomorrow's labs come back with good results, + may this transplant work well for the rest of my life.

 

TY for protecting me from cancer thus far. The risk is high d/t immunosuppression + acute + chronic inflammation/ulceration in the esophagus. May I remain cancer-free.

 

TY that the L hip area is slowly getting stronger since it was replaced. It seems to be taking forever, but I'm grateful I can swim as much as I have been doing + grateful not to feel so tentative walking.

 

May my balance improve + may I not fall or fracture any bones.

 

May I remain independent + functioning well for the rest of my life. Protect me + B from familial vascular dementia.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY that the lab results are about the same. I'd like to see a couple of the values change a little, but overall, they're pretty good for a cadaver kidney transplant that was done almost 5 years ago.

 

I have a lot of doc app'ts  coming up. May they go well. I'm a little concerned I'm having more sleep apnea at night, even with a CPAP. I pray this resolves. I also wake up too often during the night. It's not good for sleep to be disrupted like that. May this resolve as well.

 

And of course there are the endless endoscopies. The doc seems weary of dealing with me, since the esophagus is not healing. TY for protecting me from cancer- that is the most important thing. But the hiatal hernia came back, even after surgery, so that makes acid reflux pretty much a given.

 

I don't want to repeat the hiatal hernia repair- it would be tricky to do it now, with adhesions + scar tissue. The surgeon is reluctant to deal with it unless my symptoms get worse. They really aren't that bad, considering how much inflammation there is.

 

I cont. to pray for all the other health problems. May the kidney work well for the rest of my life, + may I remain mobile + independent that long too.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

Bless my app't with Dr. S. this week. May I be able to witness to him + may he be receptive.

 

May this kidney work well for the rest of my life. 

 

Help me to manage all the other debilitating health issues. Ease the pain from neuropathy + now the R hip, which I will likely have to have replaced within a year. Heal the ulcers in the esophagus + protect me from cancer.

 

Help me to get stronger each day + build muscle mass. Improve my balance.

 

TY for Your boundless grace + mercy.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY that the July labs were decent overall. May the creatinine stay down + may this kidney work well the rest of my life.

 

I pray those pesky esophageal ulcers will finally heal. Protect me from cancer.

 

May the hiatal hernia resolve on its own. I don't want a revision.

 

Another worry is the spinal stenosis. I'm concerned I may need surgery. I don't want anyone near my spinal cord with a scalpel. I do need to see a specialist to find out how much it's progressed. My symptoms are worse, + I don't want the nerves to be damaged further. Show me which specialist I should see. Bless my encounter with him + give him great wisdom on how to handle my complex health issues.

 

The neuropathy has been worse, too. Help me to cope. May I always remember Your grace is sufficient.

 

May I remain independent + cognitively sharp the rest of my life. Protect me from dementia.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

It seems there is constantly another surgery looming on the horizon. Now I'm due for cataract surgery, in addition to needing a revision of the hiatal hernia repair, possibly spinal surgery + likely a R hip replacement at some point. Will it never end? There have been dozens of surgeries + procedures over the years. I'm beyond tired of it all.

 

Still, I have to be thankful these things can be done to improve my quality of life. You've gotten me thru all of them, so I can't forget that.

 

The cataract surgery is a concern d/t me taking an alpha blocker for BP- the drug can cause intraoperative floppy iris syndrome. Severe damage can be done to the eye in some cases. Surgeons can alter their technique + take some preventive measures, but it's still a risk. Please protect me from this + other complications when it is finally done- I'll know more after my appointment.

 

I know no matter what struggles we go thru, we can't ever give up. Our entire lives we will wrestle with physical + spiritual + other problems. Give me strength.

 

Please cont. to protect the kidney, esophagus, spine, nervous system, etc.  TY for all You have done for me.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY for this 2nd transplant lasting almost 5 years. May it continue to work for the rest of my life, + work well. I pray for the next set of labs to be good-they will be done in Aug.

 

There's always another health problem popping up. Now I have to have cataract surgery (already!); the transplant meds accelerate cataract formation. I'm seeing an eye surgeon in a couple of weeks, but am concerned bc one of my BP meds can cause the iris to prolapse during surgery. Stopping the med doesn't work, bc I've been on it for years + it changes the structure of the iris. I pray for an excellent eye surgeon who has experience dealing with potential problems related to this drug. I also pray for a great outcome when the surgery is done.

 

Then, of course, there are the non-healing esophageal ulcers that I've had for years, + the hiatal hernia-even though it was repaired, the repair failed in a short time. I'll have to have that revised, too.

 

One doc is pressuring me to take a bone density drug, but I refuse bc it can cause fractures. Stupid, huh. Why take a drug to prevent fractures if it can cause fractures?

 

At some point the other hip will have to be replaced. TY that the first hip replacement went pretty well, + that leg is almost as strong as it was before it became a problem. I pray I have at least 2 years before that has to be done.

 

Please cont. to protect me from rejecting the kidney transplant, + from cancer. May I remain independent + mobile for the rest of my life. Protect me + B from dementia.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

It'll be time for labs again in a week. I pray they are good + this kidney will work well for the rest of my life.

 

TY for Your protection these past 2 weeks. First, one tire goes bad + I replace it, but no one notices the valve stem is damaged. So the new tire went flat + I drove on it at least 5 miles to get to the repair place. I ruined it, of course. But u kept me safe, so thank you so much! I hate having to spend up to $400 when it's all said + done- 2 tires, a sensor, labor, etc.--but at least no one was harmed.

 

Help me to make the right decision re: this car. Should I replace it? It's getting old + things are starting to go wrong.

 

I cont. to pray for Your blessings on my health. You've done so much for me that I'll never deserve. May I remain mobile, independent, + mentally sharp for up to 10 years. I don't really want to stay on this earth the way our society is going, but I want to be here for A + B.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

Dear Lord,

 

TY that overall I feel pretty well, + my energy level is pretty good. This is usually a good indicator that the transplant is OK.

 

May this kidney work well the rest of my life. Protect it from rejection, infection, fibrosis, renal hypertension, + everything else that can go wrong.

 

I have many co-morbidities. May I remain as healthy as possible for the rest of my life, independent, + cognitively sharp.

 

In Your precious name, amen.
