Prayers for my father-in-law
« on: March 30, 2012, 12:02:38 PM »
I am asking prayers for my father-in-law BiWen Liu, we found out this morning that he is in the hospital for an enlarged heart and some other conditions which could lead to his death. My wife will not be able to get home to China until the evening of April 11th.

Lord have mercy!
We all have an El Guapo to face. Be brave, and fight like lions!

Form a 'brute squad' then!

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.

Lord have mercy!
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

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

God have mercy on BiWen Liu.

Lord have mercy.
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.

So my father-in-law is in great spirits, healed on the swollen heart and ready to be released from the hospital tomorrow night with the only lingering problems being high cholesterol and high blood pressure, which he was unaware of before. Thank you for all your prayers. They have worked! Alleluia! Glory to God in the Highest!
