Prayer Request

I want to thank-you for reading my random ramblings! You’re a large part of why I do what I do. Well, that and the voices in my head… But they don’t like it when I talk about them. 😉

Anyway, that’s not why I’m writing today. Some weeks ago, I asked you all for prayer for my wife, Lisa, because she had a “frozen shoulder” (or adhesive capsulitis). Wanted to let you know that her shoulder still hurts, but it’s getting better. She’s been undergoing physical therapy 2-3 times per week for sometime.

For my dear Baptist brethren (and sisters), your prayers for grace during this time of tribulation are being answered–cause she’s using the shoulder, but it hurts! As for my dear Pentecostal/Charismatic brothers and sisters, pray harder! Cause your prayers for instant healing haven’t been answered yet!

Yes, the the preceding paragraph is (mostly) facetious. I say mostly because I think–at least for myself, anyway–we often want God to answer our prayers the way we want–rather than accept His grace during our times of tribulation. It’s altogether clichĂ©, but nevertheless true, that “sometimes He calms the storm, and sometimes He calms His child.”

With that in mind, I would like to request your continued prayers for a surgery my wife is undergoing tomorrow morning. We have to be at the hospital at 7:30 A.M. tomorrow morning so that she can have a cyst removed from her urethra. Please pray for wisdom for the doctor, and a quick healing for her. (We are hearing conflicting reports on whether she will, or will not, need to catheterized for three days post-op. We strongly prefer not).

Once we get her through this season, I have some health issues of my own to attend to–a worsening sleep apnea, a recurrent staph infection in one nostril–and would appreciate your prayers for those things.

Thanks so much for reading! And for making RandomlyChad what it is!

God bless you!
