Prayers requested
« on: February 26, 2008, 09:31:15 PM »
I humbly ask that you pray for me as I have been having severe pains near my abdomen/lower back since this morning.  I've ruled out a UTI via testing, but I'm praying it's only a kidney stone and not appendicitis.  Thank you.

In Christ,

Gabriel

In Christ,

Gabriel

Ooh, painful. But not as bad as it could have been. I had a friend who went through appendicitis, and that was one of the worst experiences of my life. It had to have been the worst for him.

Ooh, painful.
During my Kempo days, I was kicked in the head (explains a lot, huh?), thrown into walls, and punched in the chest and groin, but this was like being hit in the back with a Louisville Slugger over and over. :D  Thank the Lord it's over.

Lord have mercy!  I've heard doctors say passing a kidney stone is as close to the pain of childbirth as a man can get.  Having done the latter, my deepest sympathy.   ;)

Lord bless the health of us all and raise us up above the concerns of the flesh so that we may be overcome with the ways of the spirit.

Extend good health to Gabriel and for all thy people...Amen.
