Surgery Tomorrow
« on: January 21, 2009, 04:41:03 PM »
Please remember me in your prayers as tomorrow is my surgery. It begins at 8 am. Please pray all will go well and pray for God to guide and direct the surgeon and his team so that he can do an excellent job! Pray for me that I shall have a smooth recovery. So many thanks in advance to all!

Lord have mercy!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

O Lord Jesus Christ our God, Who did patiently endure the scourging and wounding of Your most holy Body, that You might save the souls and bodies of Your people, look graciously, we beseech You, upon the suffering body of Your servant and give her strength to endure patiently whatsoever You shall see fit to lay upon her. Bless the means employed for the working out of her cure, granting that she may so endure her sufferings in the flesh that the wounding of her body may be to avail for the correcting and salvation of her soul, for Yours it is to show mercy and to save, O Christ our God; and to You do we send up Glory, as to Your Eternal Father and Your All‑Holy, Good and Life‑creating Spirit, both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

We will be thinking of you tomorrow! Please keep us informed!

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

O Christ, Who alone art our Defender: Visit and heal Thy suffering handmaiden, delivering  her from sickness and grievous pains. Raise her up that she may sing to Thee and praise Thee without ceasing, through the prayers of the Theotokos, O Thou Who alone lovest mankind.
Domine Iesu Christe, Fili Dei, miserere mei, peccatricis.

Nope.  :(  Though based on how invasive the surgery sounded, I would expect the recovery to take some time, especially before she is comfortable enough to sit at a computer screen.
