    Prayer Vanity
    A few years back my mother had a pair of silent heart attacks, leaving her heart 90% obstructed. I asked Freepers to pray for her recovery, and she grew new veins in her heart returning her heart to 80% capacity. Such adventitious growth isn't unheard of in heart medicine, but the doctors were floored by how much happened and how quickly. I thank Jesus and the Freepers who prayed for her recovery. So now I'm coming back to ask for a special prayer. My boss's wife is a very special woman. And although I can't say who he is, anyone...

    My son is in great spiritual and emotional pain right now. His faith is strong, but he does not understand how he is allowed to suffer without relief. He interprets all of his suffering in spiritual terms, which is probably a mistake. I do not fear suicide. My son and I have talked about this and it is not in his mind. I do ask your prayers, that his doctor find medication that works, that my son be able to deal with his sadness and anxiety, and that he be guarded from all evil spirits.

Marie writes, “this is not good, as the this procedure is super risky, and means that the stroke is very very bad, because this is their LAST RESORT method.”

We’ve never really gone to church much but she began talking about religion quite a bit so I bought her a bible (NKJ) and she devoured it. She was reading it all the time and one day I noticed she was crossing parts out...
