Urgent Prayer Requests

I just received an urgent phone call from Marsha concerning her daughter Missy. As some of you know, Missy had a hysterectomy and bladder lift on Monday; it seems that the surgeon must have nicked her bladder and she has been leaking ever since. This means that the nick had most probably collapsed her bladder! Missy will need to go back into surgery for the surgeon to repair her bladder. Missy’s husband Stacy is beside himself because he is unable to take off from work to be at the hospital. If he does, he is told he will lose his health insurance! Marsha is distraught because her heart is in several different places at once. She feels guilty because she is unable to be with her daughter during her time of need, but Marsha is also certain she is where she is suppose to be right now; that being with our step father and mother as he passes to glory any day.

Please pray for Missy’s healing, peace, comfort, and mercy; along with the doctors to be able to repair her bladder completely with no more complications.

Pray for God’s peace and His tender loving arms to wrap around Marsha and our mother as they sit vigil in the hospital watching a dear loved one deteriorate and die before their eyes. There are some other immediate concerns that Marsha needs to address as well concerning Chris’s continued care and mom’s welfare. Please pray that the Lord will grant Marsha and our brother wisdom to acquire the right answers so mom and Chris will be taken care of properly.

Pray for or 86 year old mom, we are very concerned for her health as the strain of all this is having its toll her as well. Please pray that God will grant her peace, comfort, rest, grace, and mercy during this most difficult time in her life.

Pray for my sister’s husband, Michael who has been ill for over a month. Tests confirm that he has diverticulitis. The doctor also removed 8 polyps (small). And he has an ulcer in the small intestines. Pathology report should be in sometime this week. Again, Marsha is quite concerned and somewhat anxious because he has had to go through all this without her by his side.

Pray for me as I patiently wait here in Phoenix Arizona. My heart is heavy because I wish I could be with my family during their time of need. I will not be able to be with our mother until May 29th when we hopefully arrive to be with her for much of the summer.

When we endure the tests and trials of this life, without knowing as Job did, for example, we are left with only one thing in which to trust—God Himself. When life simply does not make sense, we must look to Him who is the Author and the Finisher of our faith, to Him who has a immense plan, a plan to reveal His glory and to accomplish that which is good for His children. We must trust in Him who is all-wise and who is also all powerful.

Thank you all for your continued prayers.

Gosh, when it rains it pours or so it seems. I am so sorry about the challenges your family is facing at this time. I'm sure it's hard for Marsha to know where to be. I will pray about this situation and that the Lord will provide you with peace and wisdom.
