Cancer Surgery
« on: March 11, 2013, 01:58:52 PM »
Hello,

I'm having surgery this Thursday to remove a cancerous tumor in my small bowel.  This tumor was discovered last summer in an unrelated surgery.  This upcoming surgery possibly will involve multiple resections of my small bowel.  Please pray that the operation is successful.

Please also pray that the general symptoms of fatigue and  other pains, which I have suffered for years, have been a result of this tumor and are resolved through this surgery.  Thank you.

- George

Lord, have mercy and grant you a speedy, compete and painless recovery!

I pray this was the source of all your back and other pains, and that you finally are pain-free!

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.
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.

Through the prayers of the Most Holy Theotokos and St. George the Prince of Martyrs , Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
