Prayer For My Ill Mother
« on: February 25, 2012, 02:07:43 AM »
I need urgent prayers for my mother. I know that I have had many issues with her regarding my conversion and all, but, I love her and I don't want anything to happen to her. Very often at night she is randomly waking up multiple times choking for air not being able to breath properly. This has been happening for about sixteen months now since she gave birth to my baby sister. I know that there are also some issues with her spine right now. Her spine has been slightly dislocated since she had my sister and this causes her to get chronic migraines very often and could possibly be linked to her respitory problems right now. She has a doctor's appointment this monday, I ask that you will all pray for her and say a good one instead of just a 'Lord have mercy'. I worry that one day in the morning I am going to get up to check on her and that she is going to be dead like she died in her sleep from lack of air. Please pray for me, I can't go on if my mom dies. She is all I have. My dad is a recovering drug addict and my siblings are too young for me to really relate to and share a special relationship with.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

Lord, have mercy.

James, can we know your mother's first name, so that we can indeed pray a "good one"?

Lord guide the doctor, bring comfort and healing to Jennie, grace and peace to James, and be merciful to them both.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

May the Lord show mercy to Jennie and grant her a complete recovery!

Praying!
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.

James, how did your mother's appointment go yesterday?
