Very urgent prayer request
« on: January 23, 2012, 12:02:59 PM »
Dear brothers and sisters

Please pray for Paul N. He is a family friend from my own youth, and he is now in Intensive Care after having a brain haemorrhage. He has been up and down, there were signs of organ failure and then some recovery. But now his breathing has grown worse.

Please pray for Paul and his young family and ask that God would have mercy on Him, in accordance with His will.
Lord have mercy upon me a sinner

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

May the Lord have mercy upon Paul, and grant him a complete recovery!
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.

Lord have mercy on Paul, and upon his family and friends during this trying time. Guide the hands of his surgeons and the hearts of his caregivers, and bring him to a full recovery under your protection.

Your prayers are an encouragement to Paul and his family, do please continue to pray. He is an evangelical Christian and I believe that having so many Orthodox praying for him is a powerful witness.

Dear friends, there is some slight improvement but many serious conditions. I know that Paul has been conscious enough to be touched by the thought that folk are praying for him.

Do please continue in prayer as you recall his needs.

May the Lord have mercy on Paul and facilitate his recovery. May He send his angels to console Paul's family and friends!
Do not want things to turn out as they seem best to you, but as God pleases. Then you will be free from confusion, and thankful in prayer.
