Need to move to first floor apartment

01 April 2019 - 09:33 PM

Dear Lord,


TY that overall the hip replacement has helped a lot, but stairs are still a problem. I'm looking all over the place for a 1st floor apt. + it's taking longer than I'd like. Please guide me to an affordable, safe place that's in good condition. Also, due to the prevalence of carjackings in our area, I need a garage to be available.


I'll have to pay a surcharge renting month-to-month since I'm not renewing my lease. I pray I don't have to do that more than a month.


In Your precious name, amen.

Pray for safe travels for son-in-law

Dear Lord,


Marty will be out of the country for a week for training with his counterparts in another country. He'll leave in about 10 days.


Keep him + everyone else who is traveling safe. May the training go well + help him in his job.


TY for this opportunity.


In Your precious name, amen. 

Please pray for blessings for my daughter's wedding/marriage

03 March 2019 - 10:17 PM

Dear Lord,


May all go well when A gets married, + may her marriage to Marty be =yoked.


I'm thankful he's been going with his Gma to church, + pray he will keep attending. He doesn't really like our church- it's quite large + he prefers smaller churches. There are other reasons, but I pray he will ultimately know + confess You as Lord. I'm really not sure what he believes. I pray for a chance to talk to him about it.


I pray that A's dad will let go of any anger or bitterness that may still be in his heart. For A's sake, I pray he will be civil at her wedding + reception.


May there be no snow or ice that day, + may no one be injured or get sick (or worse). A's one remaining Gma is 90 now.


Keep them safe on their honeymoon + as they travel in + out of the country. May no evil befall them + may they have a good time.


In Your precious name, amen.

Endoscopy-esophageal ulcers won't heal

15 January 2019 - 03:58 PM

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.

Please pray for SH

26 October 2018 - 12:40 PM

Dear Lord,


You know SH's story. His parents refused to abort him even though the docs said he was not worth saving. They said he had no brain + too many medical problems for them to deal with.


The parents honored You, + You honored their faith. SH does have a brain after all, but he has heart, lung, neuromuscular, speech, + other problems. He can't walk-just scoots around in a little scooter- + can't really talk, even though he is about 6 by now. He has to go to a special school + has a lot of trouble swallowing. The problems are monumental for anyone except an almighty God.


This family has been through tremendous trials, but they continue to put their faith in You. Please keep them strengthened as this journey goes on + on. I esp. pray for the older brother, who likely feels as though his little brother comes first. They're aware of this + try to give him the attention he needs too, but it is very hard.


I can't imagine what kind of medical bills they have, either. Little SH has had multiple heart surgeries + other procedures. 


Bless this family + give them great strength + hope. May SH continue to do much better than expected. May laser surgery on his tongue be a possibility so that he'll be able to talk- or whatever it takes to make this miracle happen.


In Your precious name, amen.
