Prayers for a friend in surgery
« on: December 08, 2006, 12:25:46 AM »
Dear All,
This evening I learned that one of my best friends has been taking to an emergency room and it sounds like the surgery will be really needed this night. I do not know anything myself at all. I just have his voice mail from an emergency room with the summarization of information. Neither location, nor tipe of surgery, illness or accident, etc. A couple of days ago we had a telephone conversation and he was completely healthy.
Your prayers will be really appreciated. May God bless you!

Lord, have mercy!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Your prayers are greatly appreciated. May God bless you!!! Thank you very much.
My friend had an infection with suspicions for some things much worth. The complete observation eliminated these concerns. The surgery has been avoided and he feels much better. Thank you again.
