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'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.
