Please pray for my employee Tom. He's been bleeding for a week, been to the doctor but no conclusion yet still running tests.

Lord, have mercy on him.
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.

O Lord, Physician of our souls have mercy on Tom.
Not everything I type or have typed in the past is reflective of the teaching of the Orthodox Church, or may not reflect my contemporary views on a subject. (5/30/2015)

I am scaling back posting because the crack in my computer screen makes it harder and harder to type.

Thank you Maria, he's doing a little better but still not well, still doing tests as they can be scheduled, which I suppose is good in and of itself. If it was too bad the doctors would clear their schedule and do the tests immediately.

Continued prayers. Lord have mercy.

Thanks Cyrillic.

Update: They're still running tests and while they see something that could be something they're not sure it may be nothing too. He's fasting all day today. No food for 24 hours before the next test.

Talked too Tom today, everything has worked out well for his health and this issue is behind him now.

However, his wife had a miscarriage, didn't even realize she was pregnant before the miscarriage. She is recovering physically, but slowly. It's effected both of them emotionally. They're stable but it's hard.

Lord, have mercy.

Some of my questions might appear patently stupid to those well-versed in Orthodoxy, but I'm brand new, having no background in the faith.  Please grant me a great deal of patience and consideration as I learn the basics.

Thanks for all the updates.  It is nice to hear the outcome of some of the prayer requests posted.

May the Lord grant both husband and wife physical and spiritual healing, and many healthy pregnancies and children in the future.
