***Thank you so much for the prayers that were lifted up to God on behalf of L and A. Praising God for His goodness and mercies. For His hand of protection and for His love and strength. L came out of surgery around 7:00 this evening and will be in the ICU overnight. The surgery was deemed a success by the neurosurgeon and all of the tumor was removed without complication. The tumor is believed to be benign and a complete recovery is expected. L is in a great deal of pain. If you feel lead, please continue praying for his healing and pain managment. He will be out of work for approx. 3 months recovering. Please pray over this family for their needs to be met by our gracious and loving Heavenly Father. I am so humbled and honored to serve our mighty Lord. I stood hand in hand in His presence today with dear sweet sisters and brothers in the Lord. To You alone, God, is all praise and honor given!
"For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." Hebrews 4:15-16
"And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up....and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." James 5:15-16
For any of you who pass through today, may I ask you to please pray for my dear friends. They are part of the body of Christ and have two small children. L has a brain tumor at the base of his brain and will be in surgery this afternoon (Wed. 10/1 @ 1:00 pm EST) to have it removed. The doctor's believe that it is benign. The surgery will take about 4.5 hours. Please pray for healing. Please pray that the doctor's would have steady hands and that all of the tumor would be able to be removed without damaging any part of his brain. Please pray against complications. Please pray for all of the hospital staff that will be operating and assisting with L. Please pray for a quick recovery.
Please pray for A, his wife, as she will be waiting: that God's strength and peace would remain upon them all. Please pray over this surgery and the details of the day, their children at home, their unsaved family and friends....that God would be magnified in and through A & L....as He already has been. All praise and honor be given to Him. He is the great physician.
I will be with A tomorrow at the hospital. Please pray that God would give me the words to speak to her, to minister to her, to encourage her and that I would be used however He pleases.
Thank you so much. It is an honor and a privilege to pray for one another in the body of Christ. May we go boldy before God's throne of grace.
In Christ's love and amazing grace-Stacy
