Dear Lord,

 

As you know, I've had Barrett's esophagus for probably over 10 years, along with ulcers that won't heal + a recurrent stricture. The doc brought up the idea of removing part of the esophagus again. but it's a huge + risky surgery, even for a healthy person. Supposedly it would help prevent cancer, since I've had high grade dysplasia at least some of the time. 

 

Please guide me. I'm still recovering from the hip replacement, + finally getting more mobile. The last thing I want to do is subject this poor ravaged body to ANOTHER surgery that could take up to 6 hrs. That would be another big stress on the transplant kidney, + there can be plenty of problems afterward that make people regret they ever had the surgery done in the first place. I heard of at least one woman who had to have a 2nd surgery bc the first one caused her so much trouble. I can't see putting myself through all that. 

 

My strong inclination is not to agree to surgery. You've protected me from cancer all these years, so I'm praying you'll continue to do so. If for some reason You want me to have this surgery, then please speak to my heart about it. Otherwise, I'm not going to do it.

 

There are 2 more tests in the works to assess swallowing + pH impedance. We'll see what those show.

 

TY for taking care of me so wonderfully all these years.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

God,

My impression is that dreiBohnen should not have the surgery. Please guide her  to make the right decision. Let peace be her umpire. I pray that she will live a long and fruitful life for Your glory. In Jesus' name, amen.

Father in heaven,

Please heal 'D.'

Give them guidance and wisdom in this matter.

If they should have the surgery then let this person know this & give them perfect peace about it.

If this person does not need this surgery, then give them perfect peace about not having it.

Send healing into D body, giving divine health.

Cast out all diseases in that body, never to return again.

Thank You our Lord for answering these prayers. Amen.

Dear Lord,

 

It seems like all the medical tests, procedures + surgeries are a part-time job. It gets very tedious, as You know!

 

I'm not looking forward to 3 more tests coming up. I pray the pH impedance test won't be too uncomfortable + will provide useful information.

 

May the ulcers finally heal. It's been years.

 

Let me not forget to praise + TY that the biopsies showed only Barrett's--no cancer or dysplasia. That is a miracle.

 

In Your precious name, amen.

My sister I am sorry that you have had to deal with this for so long.  I currently have and esophageal ulcer.  It is time for you to heal. 

 

Father I lift up Drei to you.  You know all of her needs better than I.  She has suffered with many ailments and yet you have brought her through this far.  I know that you have a plan for her.  I ask you Father to grant her prayer for healing.  She has prayed faithfully for herself and others.  Let her open her heart and mind for a complete healing to take place.  Remove this stricture, ulcers and other problems.  Let it be done.  

 

In the precious name of Jesus. 

Amen
