Please Pray

This is my last post until after my husband's surgery, which will be on December 27th at 7:00 a.m. I would appreciate your prayers for Todd, for his surgeon, and for all the hospital staff who will be taking care of him. Please pray that God will watch over every aspect of this event, that the surgery will be uncomplicated, that it will go quickly and that Todd will have no problems with recovery. Please also pray for me and my kids, as we'll all be there, staying in a hotel. The hospital is 2 hours from our home, which will make it more difficult for us but we'll manage. My in-laws will stay in the same hotel for a few days and Todd's uncle will meet us at the hospital on the day of the surgery. We hope to be able to come home in 4-5 days. Pray for good health, cooperative children, good traveling weather, our safety and my sanity. I'm kind of running on auto pilot these days, with Christmas nearly here, but then I need to plan for the days following. Pray for me to buck up and stop being in denial. I have to be strong.

Thank you so much. I appreciate your prayers. To God be the Glory. May we see His mighty hand doing great things this next week.

I sincerely wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year!

Oh, come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!!

You may be certain I'll pray. 7.00am is very early but the operation will be over & done with quicker. You'll probably be able to find out how he is in the afternoon. I'll try to work out when 7.00am, Dec 27th, is in our time zone so I can pray for Todd as he goes in.
May you all feel God's love & protection more than ever during these few coming weeks and I'll be glad to read your post around New Year telling us all that everything went OK.
Blessings,
Paula

I'll be praying with you. You are not alone. He will never leave you nor forsake you.

The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord shine His face upon you and give you peace forever.

Will be praying for you from this end of the world my friend!

Make sure that you have a wonderful Christmas, pack heaps of dvds & games for those kiddies & be brave in Him as you live in your hotel while Todd recovers.

Look forward to a good report.
bless you,
