God, Your ear is not too heavy to hear, Your hand is not too short to deliver; we call on you to divinely intervene in this case. O Lord! may you render the heavens and come down and heal this dear one. Father, healing is our divine right. Jesus, by His stripes, secured healing for us from all manner os sicknessees and diseases. Do it we pray, that our dear one will receive a iracle for your glory. Thank You because you say “Call unto me and I will answer”. We receive your report, we believe it and we thank You in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. It is done!

I’ve been praying for Dave, and will keep praying for him. I’m focusing my prayers on all the cancer cells being removed with the surgery, and that God gives Dave the strength he needs.

I’m not sure what Dave’s schedule is for today ... but I want to thank you for your prayers. I know he and his family appreciate them.

Hopefully he will have time to check in sometime today.

It was a labor of love for a truly special person. Except for prayer, we all feel so helpless when illness befalls people we care about. I am glad I could do something to help.

I believe in the power of prayer and I just have a good feeling that he is going to be okay. :-)

DiverDave--You are a most stalwart conservative and superb Freeper!

As a 4 year cancer survivor, I pray that God will grant you strength and perseverance through your personal battle with cancer. May the Good Lord guide your health care providers with keen evaluation and management skills. May your family and friends provide you comfort and support during your recuperation.

Please get to feeling better pronto! We need your help for this ongoing battle with goofy liberals. If there is anything I can do to help, please give me a yell! {{{hugs}}}

Is he having the procedure today or tomorrow? I thought it was to be on Wednesday, but I could be mistaken about that.

The procedure is scheduled for Wednesday. It will be performed in Sacramento. I’m not sure if they will be going there this morning or later today.

Hopefully he will be able to check in with us before his surgery.

Again .... Thank you again for your Labor of Love.

Well, of course, now I see that is exactly what you said in the opening of the thread, that the procedure is going to be on Wednesday. I need to pay better attention. :-(

Thanks, Amy, for all you do on and for FreeRepublic. You are a treasure.

Pain No More

For a good portion of my life, I shared the perspective of those who rail against God for allowing pain. I could find no way to rationalize a world as toxic as this one.

As I visited people whose pain far exceeded my own, though, I was surprised by its effects. Suffering seemed as likely to reinforce faith as to sow doubt.

My anger about pain has melted mostly for one reason: I have come to know God. He has given me joy and love and happiness and goodness. It leaves me with faith in a Person, a faith so solid that no amount of suffering can erode it.

Where is God when it hurts? He has been there from the beginning. He designed a pain system that, in the midst of a fallen world, bears His stamp. He transforms pain, using it to teach and strengthen us if we allow it to turn us toward Him.

He has hurt and bled and cried and suffered. He has dignified for all time those who suffer, by sharing their pain. But one day He will gather the armies of heaven and will unleash them against the enemies of God. The world will see one last terrifying moment of suffering before the full victory is ushered in. Then God will create for us a new, incredible world. And pain will be no more (Rev. 19:11–22:6).

He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace!
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race. —Wesley

Pain will either turn us against God or draw us to Him.

Good Afternoon to all of you.

I’m brought to tears with this outpouring of Love and Prayers.

I’m awaiting a call from the hospital as to what time the procedure will take place tomorrow. They may keep me overnight tomorrow or they may send me home on Wednesday depending on the time and recovery.

I’ll provide updates as things progress.

Again, thank you all so very much for your prayers for me and my family.
