Please Pray

OK Folks, Here is another update. At the risk of Mom being mad at me for bothering y'all, I am asking for specific prayers tomorrow. The doctor just decided that Mom is having another surgery sometime tomorrow. She is really tired and a bit discouraged, so I pray for her to have peace in her spirit, and for God to renew her strength. I pray for her surgeon to make the best decisions possible, and for Him to guide his hands. Above all, I pray for this surgery to work once and for all so she can get back to her normal self. I know this blog is supposed to be fun, so I apologize for the serious tone, but I really appreciate all the help we can get.
Stacy

Stacy -
Even though blogs are for lots of fun with our blog friends, we also care very much about each other. Your mother is a very special lady to a lot of us in blogland and we feel SO privileged to be able to pray for her. Thank you for sharing an update so we know how to pray. She will be wrapped in prayer tomorrow as she goes into surgery. And we will believe that this will be the last one for her. Please give her my love and tell her I'm praying. For her and for you. I know what it is to be the daughter who supports and stands with the parent going through health issues. ~Adrienne~

Stacy, I am so thankful that you came to us for prayers and support. I stopped immediately to pray for your mother, each of you and her caregivers. As you look to God for guidance, He looks on you with love. I know how hard it is to wait through a time when someone you so dearly love is suffering.

Please give your mother our love.

Who says a blog always has to be "fun". To me a blog is somewhere you can go to for fun and also for times when you need to be on a more serious note.

Rest assured I will remember your Mom in my prayers.

Janera said...

Stacey, I hope you are reading these comments. If so, please email me. I live nearby and would like to run up to the hospital and bring something for bj from her blogging friends.

I won't interfere but I think we all want to reach out to our friend, and I can surely come up and run errands for you or just sit in the chapel at the hospital for awhile and pray for your family right there where you are. It would be my honor. I just need to know which hospital.

Click on my name and you will see that you can email me.

Blessings,
Janera

Oh Good Lord, Please bless our good friend B.J. and give her all of the stregnth, love, comfort, nourishment and ability to heal painlessly and quickly as possible!!!
Please bless her husband, children, grandchildren, family, friends and those who are nearest and dearest to her!
Please bless the minds and hands set forth to heal her!
I agree with everything that everyone has written, and I would like to echo it all... As I pray, I also want to thank the Lord for blessing me and allowing BJ's wonderful spirit to touch my heart and life! Who would've thought visiting RMS over a yr and a half ago, would've changed my life and brought such a wonderful lady and light into my life and heart?) See, there's proof right there that He's almighty, mysterious, and all is possible through him!
Thank you Lord! Thank you BJ! Thank you Stacy! Amen!!!

Stacy, I am so sorry that I haven't responded before now! My son broke his arm last week and was in surgery on Wednesday, so I haven't been blogging like I normally do! I didn't know your mom was sick and in the hospital until just now! Don't worry about your post being serious! Your mom is so much fun and I enjoy her blog so much, but we are also here for each other for the serious stuff too! I will certainly be remembering BJ in my prayers and I hope the surgery goes well! Please keep us updated! Tell her I am sending BIG NC wishes for good health, her way! :)

Hugs & prayers, Rhonda
