Prayers for Co-worker Kristen Balla
« on: May 07, 2012, 10:25:10 AM »
I very dear co-worker, Kristen Balla suffered a pulmonary Embolism Saturday morning while visiting a friend in Maryland. EMS had to resuscitate her 15 times and since then she has been in 4 surgeries at the University of Maryland Hospital to remove 2 Blood Clots and to close up internal bleeding.

I ask for all to offer up prayers for Kristen Balla and her family. Thank You.
St Basil the Great (330-379 A.D.): “I think then that the one goal of all who are really and truly serving the Lord ought to be to bring back to union the churches who have at different times and in diverse manners divided from one another.”

May the Lord be merciful and grant her a complete recovery, with no damage sustained during the numerous periods without oxygen....and grant her family strength.

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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy on Kristen and her family.
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.
