10 hour drive and a uncooperative back
« on: September 26, 2012, 12:46:10 PM »
Please pray for me, I have a back that doesn't do well in long car trips.  Tomorrow and Sunday I will be in a car for 10 hours or more each way.  I'm visiting a monastery for the first time and would very much like to be able to be out of the bed while I'm there. 

Thank you!
BethAnna
In His Mercy,
BethAnna

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.

Throught the intercessions of the Theotokos, may your back do well and your driving time be short.

Thank you everyone for praying!! Our 10 and a half hour trip turned out to be a 14 hour trip there and a 12 hour trip back due to a lot of construction - but it worked out for the better as the time spent with my sisters in Christ was . . . wow. . .priceless. 

But to beat all - my back was fine all the way up and all the way back!! I'm actually able to walk today!! I'm amazed.  Utterly amazed. . . this hasn't happened before!!

**grins**

Glory and Thanks be to God who hears His children!!

Thank you for your prayers!
In His Mercy,
BethAnna
