prayer

I had another post written and scheduled to post, and then something was brought to my attention.

My college roommate, Amanda, and her family need your prayers right now. Her mom is not doing well and hospice has been called in; no one is sure of the amount of time she has left. Pray that she finds relief from pain and that the family can have comfort in these hours. There are several small grandchildren in the family who don't really understand what's going on.

And then my Dad is scheduled for prostate surgery this afternoon at 1:30 EST. He and Mom were both planning to go to work a bit this morning and then he will pick her up and head to the hospital for 11:30EST.

Pray that the surgeon will be able to preserve as much of the prostate as he can, while also being able to get all of the cancer. And for Mom, that she will be at peace while she waits out the surgery.

God is good, and He knows best.

Thanks, friends!

I'll be praying! My dad is scheduled for the same surgery on Sept. 17th. Believe me, I know what you're going through. Prayers for you too, friend!
