God Reveal the Answer
« on: September 24, 2009, 01:32:33 PM »
Could you please pray that God reveal an answer to my spinal disk degeneration problem and related problems.  I've had it for several years now and the pain is constant.  I've prayed for miracle healings from the saints, and I've also gone to several spine specialists and doctors.  However, they haven't been able to do anything to help with the pain and stiffness.  The shots did not work, and the pain medicine didn't really help me feel better.  I've looked into alternative medicine for a possible solution, but I haven't found anything on this route that helps me.  The pain and stiffness significantly affects my life, my relationships with friend and family, and at the workplace, where I have to interact with people in a customer service manner. 

So, if you could please pray that God clearly reveal what medicine or medical option would best heal my spine and mind, I would greatly appreciate it. 

Thanks,

George

Lord, have mercy and heal Your servant George.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Holy Unmercinaries and wonderworkers visit our infirmities. Freely you have recieved, freely give.

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

Have you been anointed with the holy unction?

I received holy unction at the Holy Unction service last Lent.  I also a few months ago went to a St. Panteleimon service where I was anointed at the end with an unction that only Orthodox Christians can receive (I'm guessing that was also the mystery of unction).  Thanks for your prayers.
