Prayer Request
« on: November 03, 2008, 11:29:09 AM »
Hi everyone,

As you might know, I'm currently on chemo/radiation. I now have 2 more weeks to go. The radiation is really starting to accumulate and cause me pain, burning, stinging, and discomfort. I simply don't know how I'm going to continue on with this.

Please remember me in your prayers. Please pray that my healthy tissue will be miraculously protected throughout this onslaught.

Many thanks.

God willing, these next 2 weeks will go by quickly for you.

"O Lord Jesus Christ, our Saviour, Physician of souls and bodies, who didst become man and suffer death on the Cross for our salvation, and through thy tender love and compassion didst heal all manner of sickness and affliction; do thou O Lord, visit thy handmaid in her suffering, and grant her grace and strength to bear this sickness with which she is afflicted, with Christian patience and submission to Thy will, trusting in thy loving kindness and tender mercy.  Bless, we pray Thee, the means used for her recovery, and those who administer them.  Amen."

With much gratitude I thank you for your prayers! Please forgive me for being a pest about the prayers. But I testify to the great power of your prayers: I went in to the radiation unit today feeling unbearably ill, and now I am feeling much better. Many, many thanks, for being there during these tricky moments, my friends.

Folks,

another plea for prayers...I'm in the last week now of treatment and the radiation is causing some distress. Burning in the pelvic area, generalized distress, bowel problems-I can't sleep at all. They say everything gets worse the last couple weeks, but I beg your prayers to help me through this difficulty.

Thanks!

Lord have mercy!

You are in our prayers, Rosehip!

Oh, you are all so kind...thank you, thank you.

I don't deserve your kindness, but I'm really grateful. Monday is the last day of treatment, but the doctor says I won't begin to feel myself until two weeks later.

Thank you one and all. Stashko, your pictures are so sweet.
