Schizophrenic sister wants to move closer to me

16 June 2018 - 11:00 AM

Dear Lord,


I don't think B is thinking this thru. I'm afraid she is letting her paranoia drive her away from the support system she has in a city an hour away bc she thinks "they" have certain expectations of her; moving is one-- among other things. You know all the reasons it concerns me to have her move. If this is the wrong decision please hold up a stop sign for her so she will rethink this.


She's already looking at an apt. today. It is more expensive to live here + I don't think she realizes what a drastic change it will be. But some of my concerns are selfish.  It's hard enough to cope with her verbalizing her paranoid ideation to me in divided doses. What would it be like if I were bombarded with it more often? That's what I'd like to avoid. Forgive me for my selfishness + help me to do what is best for her.


In Your precious name, amen.

Please pray for K

23 May 2018 - 12:15 PM

Dear Lord,


K is a young boy with Down syndrome. He has had at least 2 surgeries, I think, + now has to  have another. May all go well + may the surgery be successful. May he heal quickly + completely.


His parents have 2 other children + I'm under the impression their marriage is rocky. Please help them to work out their problems by following biblical principles + always treating one another kindly.


In Your precious name, amen.



Please pray for Bill

23 May 2018 - 12:12 PM

Dear Lord,


Bill had chemo a while back for Hodgkin's lymphoma + now he has a new throat tumor. A permanent trach was done the other day. He is worried bc his wife does not get around well + shouldn't be alone. If/when he dies, she may have to go into a nursing home.


Lord, so often cancer treatments do more harm than good. The cancer returns, either in the same or a different place. The treatments are toxic + debilitating, not to mention horribly expensive.


I pray Bill will recover quickly + heal from this. May he + his wife enjoy more years together. May they rely on You for all their needs.


In Your precious name, amen.

L hip replacement surgery in September

12 May 2018 - 03:36 PM

Dear Lord,


The L hip joint is pretty well obliterated d/t arthritis caused by long-term damage after a fall over 30 years ago. It is no longer manageable + there is a lot of pain, limping, + decreased mobility. At this point it seems there is no other choice or further damage will be caused.


The surgery is scheduled for September. Help me to get much stronger by working in the pool + swimming. Protect me from injury to nerves, uneven leg length after surgery, blood clots, infection + other complications. May all go well + may the surgeon, nurses, + everyone involved be given great wisdom, knowledge, skill, compassion, etc.


May I recover well + regain full mobility w/o pain.


In Your precious name, amen.
