Prayer Requests 10-15-16

Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 18:1-6

¹I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.

The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.

In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

  1. For those who may not have seen it, Ann posted this early this morning on yesterday’s daily thread:

    Good morning, all. Good evening, Jo.
    Yesterday was hard….My dad called at 6:30am to tell me my mom had fallen at eight pm the previous night. She refused to go to the hospital until morning….well….by midnight, she was moaning in her sleep and my dad–who’d never gone to bed–called EMS. They took her to the Kerrville hospital. Turns out she’d broken her tibia completely off–she had surgery yesterday at 2:00…..They replaced broken tibia with titanium. My dad was exhausted and terrified she’d die on the operating table because she’s still quite weak after her back surgery in late June. Miraculously –she’s still with us–but she’s got a long and difficult recovery in front of her.

  2. I am feeling quite down today, partly because I had to try to be so upbeat yesterday for my friend. I am concerned about her surgery on Wed. She has so many health issues. The surgery will potentially help her feel better than she has for sometime. She is in heart failure and will not last long without the surgery. I am like a sister to her. I so much want her to have a great result from surgery.

  3. Janice – Last night on yesterday’s prayer thread, you mentioned how exhausting it was as an introvert going to that big hospital. This isn’t the exact same thing, but Hubby & I were at the hospital (not a big one), in the one-day surgery center, surrounded by other patients & the nurses, for almost six hours (except for the time I was in the operating room). There were delays, so all the cataracts surgeries were backed up. By the time we left, I was exhausted. “Just waiting around” can wear one out.

    *************

    I called Dr. D’s answering service this morning, as I wondered if I really should wait until Thursday to see her again, with no change (that I can see) in my eye. Another doctor returned my call, asked me some questions, & said it sounds like I can wait until Thursday, that sometimes it takes a long time for the eye to clear up.

  4. I let my anxiety about my eye get the best of me, & haven’t slept well the past couple nights. 😦 I’m usually the kind of person who doesn’t think a health problem is actually serious, & won’t call a doctor until I absolutely have to. But this eye does have me worried.

    Prayers for patience & trust appreciated. Thank you.

  5. Oh, I always assume the worst with health problems. 🙂 Right away. Terminal.

    But it sounds like the vision isn’t out of the real of what’s typical after these surgeries — glad you called the doctor, though. Keep on it.

  6. I still remember one of my uncles who was something of a hypochondriac (at least the family thought so and always talked and laughed about it). It was like he always had a mystery illness but no doctor could ever find anything wrong.

    One day my aunt and uncle were getting ready for church (this was the Catholic side of the family, uncle was my dad’s brother who converted when he married into the faith) and he literally collapsed and died a couple days later, an aneurysm. He was in his early 50s.

    We always wondered if that as what had caused him some to be vaguely unsettled that *something* was wrong. Of course, back then (in the early ’70s) they didn’t have all the high-tech diagnostic tools we have now that might have figured it out.

  7. DJ – I have a similar story about my maternal grandmother.

    From what I was told, Nana was a hypochondriac who also hated going to a doctor. So when she’d been complaining for a while that her stomach hurt, no one took it seriously.

    Finally one day she did go to the doctor. She died a few days later of stomach cancer.

    No, I don’t think what I have going on with my eye is typical, but maybe not to worry about either.

  8. I’m sure there’s a range of recovery experiences that they typically see. I think I remember when my good, late friend Norma had her cataract surgeries that one eye was more of a problem than the other one, but they both wound up fine.

  9. My oldest brother has been with my dad the last couple of days. He has to be back in court Monday, so I’m headed to Bandera today at noon….staying until Friday. Please pray.

  10. Update on Paul the retired Coast Guard helicopter pilot, still in serious/critical condition at Stanford hospital. They amputated his right hand, all the fingers on his left hand and all his toes. They are hoping to save his feet. The infection continues to rage, the doctors would really like to remove the source–the knee replacement–but he is too frail to risk it right now.

    I haven’t told my husband yet, but I think we’ll be stopping by Thursday afternoon on our way home–it’s not that far out of the way–to at least give his wife Linda a hug. Pastor said he’s not contagious, appears to be handling it okay, but a visit would be terrific.

    Pray for us to be whatever they need Thursday afternoon. Thanks.

  11. My Chickadee needs God to do a miracle in her & for her, for many reasons. My heart aches so bad for her. (And Nightingale needs the Holy Spirit to get through to her, too.)
