Prayer Request

 Reflections - Sand Creek, WI
August, 2013


“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.” 

- William Nicholson, Shadowlands


And right now, I'm praying also because my best friend's son is in the ICU of a hospital in the Twin Cities. He nearly bled to death a few nights ago. It seems that the chest pains, which doctors had assumed were heart related, turned out to be a symptom of a bleeding stomach ulcer which had eaten through to his gastric artery. He has undergone surgery, but is by no means out of the woods yet. Please join me in praying for James and his wife and his parents. Pray that God will guide the doctors and nurses to be vigilant and alert and knowledgeable and accurate - and that James, God willing, will heal fully.

 

In you, Lord my God,
    I put my trust.
