Prayers

  • December 8, 2017 2:44 PM PST
    Nov 2014 was my last day of Home PT after a 5 hour surgery 5 hours in the recovering room and what turn out a week in the Hospital , all done now just continue healing. Still NO pain and have stop taking 4 pain MEDs. Wow, it for the Grace of God that I am healing without the need for these MEDs that I had been taking for years. Being able to relax in HIS healing has been such a transforms in my heart and mind as to how HE is in control of our needs if we come to HIM. When I left the hospital, I told Diane my wife that GOD was going to be my MEDs/ pain pills.   Pray often to GOD and ask HIM to help us in our efforts to grow our faith and to live as Christians, Prayer plays a vita role in our relationship with GOD and with HIS son Jesus Christ (1 Peter 3:12 ). Prayer, and the need for us to pray appears throughout the Bible and we need to rely on GOD such as I did after my surgery and make prayer a big part of our life.(James 5:16) tells us that the prayer of a good person has a powerful effect. These are not just "ask for prayers", but prayers where we thank GOD for everything HE has done, for use . When we pray we sense the presence of the Holy Spirit within us.

    Glad you are doing better. The spirit carrieth the flesh along and we have to remind ourselves not to over-do it for a few days. Getting home is so good.
    I had a patient many years ago (cancer) that didn't need pain meds? I have seen plenty resist them and hurt along a little to avoid them, but never one of those "no complaint of pain" enigma people we hear about who should have a lot of pain. He never mentioned faith or Father, but he resonated down to earth, unexpectant simplicity and with the exception of 2 shots of whiskey a day, lived an entirely wholesome life, farming until he was 80.
