Urgent prayer request
2-16-2010 | self

Posted on 02/16/2010 8:01:35 AM PST by rightly_dividing

Please be in prayer for our sister in Christ, Betty Brooks. Betty went in to a small hospital in Ms. yesterday for a fairly routine procedure on her heart, done through the veins under her armpit.. Things did not go as planned and it turned into open heart surgery. Long story short, she is on a heart pump machine and they cannot get her stable for transport to a another hospital that has the equipment that she needs. Only an intervention from the Lord is going to help at this point. Betty is a Bible believing Christian. Her and her husband are the hosts of our Thursday night Bible study in their home, and are truly God loving, wonderful people.

Thank you. It was really a shocker to us. She walked into the hospital yesterday looking healthy, feeling good. She was at church Sunday.

Though I do not know her or her need, our Father in heaven does and "He doeth all things well". Asking that God's perfect will be accomplished in this need. Who knows but that God will use her to melt a cold heart by her testimony among the staff.

Thank you so much. Prayer is the BEST thing that we can do for her.

She is a person that never complains about anything. If she were conscious right now, she would say "I'm doing just fine, how are you"

Thanks again to everybody.

I'm with you. They dont call Him the Great Healer for nothing. I am a brain aneurysm surgery survivor. My surgeon said that I was supposed to be dead. God had a differant idea.

Prayers for Betty. I had a similar procedure to zap a part of my heart — out patient surgery, but they went in through the femoral artery.

Prayers up for Betty and family.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Thank you everyone.

She and her hubby of 40+ years were very close and loving. I used to see them walking into Sunday service holding hands and thought how sweet that was after all these years together. They had no children, so she was everything in the world to him. He has really taken it hard.

FReepers, please pray for her husband and their large, extended family.

There is no such thing as a routine surgical procedure, thing can go wrong. Even the 2 Drs that operated were crying rivers of tears. No fault of theirs, it could not have been forseen that her heart would not restart.

Again, thank you FReepers at this tough time.
