In Topic: Please pray for sponsored children in Bangladesh and Brazil

Yesterday, 03:13 PM

Dear Lord,


Help me to be more faithful in fulfilling Your command to meet the needs of others. TY for the opportunities You provide.


Please bless these precious kids + their families. Protect them physically, spiritually, emotionally, financially, etc. May all their needs be met. May they do well in school. May they be rich in faith + learn to rely on You for everything. 


Protect them from natural disasters such as flooding + disease. May disease + injury not touch them. May their homes + livelihoods be secure. May crime, alcoholism, drugs, or loss of livelihood not come near them.


I esp. pray for Nielly, who is no longer in the Compassion service area. May she be able to attend church + school + may her faith grow.


Please give them hope + a future. It is a blessing to know they have faith in You.


In Your precious name, amen.

In Topic: Seeking Christian husband for daughter

Yesterday, 03:10 PM

Dear Lord,


Please bless A + Marty as their wedding gets closer. May Marty be moved to seek You as his Lord + Savior. May A feel Your Spirit guiding her + seek to serve You with all her heart, soul + mind. Order her footsteps + both of them wisdom, discernment + clarity of vision.


Protect them both from false teachings + from being deceived by the many behaviors/lifestyles they are being told are now acceptable + even honorable--despite what Your Word says. TY that A goes to church with me much of the time, but Marty rarely goes. May he want to go with her.


May they both eat right, exercise often, + get enough sleep.


Give them financial + job security. TY for the ways You've provided for them so far.


In Your precious name, amen.

In Topic: Please pray for functioning of 2nd kidney transplant

Yesterday, 03:00 PM

Dear Lord,


TY that the creatinine came back down to baseline. It is technically normal, but Dr. S said since my muscle mass is so low it's probably 1.2 instead of .81. That would mean state 2 chronic kidney disease, but that is not bad. The only way to know for sure is to do a 24 hr. urine collection + measure the creatinine clearance. I may ask to have him order that in January, after recovering from the hip replacement. I'd like to know what it really is.


Otherwise, the labs were OK except the sodium was low again. I am probably over-hydrating in this hot weather.


I pray for Your protection of this kidney. The transplant is almost 4 years old. May it work well for the rest of my life. May all the other issues be manageable + may I regain better mobility once the hip replacement is done. It's getting harder to do stuff with the damaged hip. May all go well with the surgery.


I pray I won't lose any more muscle mass from the type of neuropathy I have. It is scary to see how thin I am. Help me to rebuild muscle in spite of the odds against it.


In Your precious name, amen.

In Topic: L hip replacement surgery in September

Yesterday, 02:55 PM

Dear Lord,


I am equally scared/looking forward to getting this hip replacement. I hate to subject my body to another major surgery, but there is no help for it. There is no cartilage left + it hurts to walk. It's only gotten worse. I pray this makes a big difference in my quality of life.


TY that I can at least swim for exercise; I can't do anything else. There is still pain with swimming, but it is manageable. May it make a difference.


Give the surgeon extra skill, knowledge + wisdom when he does this. May he do it all himself + not let his residents practice on me. I don't care if they do the final sutures but everything else I'd prefer he do.


Protect the kidney now, during + after the procedure.


In Your precious name, amen.

In Topic: Daughter has severe muscle strain in back

Yesterday, 02:51 PM

Dear Lord,


A seems to be prone to issues with her back + hips. Bless her + help her to make time to get the right kind of exercise + do it often. May she also eat right + be conscious of what can aggravate this condition.


TY that her back is better right now.


In Your precious name, amen.
