A cousin of mine, Teri, daughter of Bill and Shirley Scott, is having surgery at the St. Vincent Medical Center, in Los Angeles, CA. She went to California today, will have testing tomorrow, and will have surgery Friday, the 24th at 7:30 am. Teri has a tumor lodged between her ear and brain. Supposedly it is benign, but needs to be removed. The surgery is risky because of all of the nerves that are also in that area behind the ear and she will loose hearing in that ear. Will you pray for God to guide her surgeon, and for a steady hand in removing it?
Also keep three of my high school classmates, Barry, Doug and Stephanie, in your prayers as they are undergoing chemotherapy for cancers found in their brain, colon and breast. Another cousin, Christer, is now in hospice or awaiting getting into one in Sweden. He has been battling cancer since the beginning of the year and been in the hospital for over three months.
Thank you for joining me in prayer for these people, their families and anyone else in need. When we pray passionately and purposefully, according to God's will, God responds powerfully! The power of prayer should never be underestimated.
