From Chris Hansen (posted yesterday):

Off to the quacks tomorrow to get my feet seen to. I hope they'll put them right. Every time I put on the orthopedic shoes they've made for me, it seems that they rip up a toe or the sole of a foot. I've had to hide them to keep myself from wearing them. If you could add my feet to the prayer list today I'd be grateful.


From Suzer:

Hi Jonathan. I thought you and your readers might enjoy this update about Alfred Real, for whom you posted my prayer request last year. A year ago yesterday, Al was burned over 80% of his body when he and a friend were playing with a gasoline can. This story in last week's AJC shows how amazingly well Al is recovering. There was also a spot last night on our local TV news, but I can't find the video version. Nice to have a bright spot of news now and then, right?

We went to dinner with Al's aunts, Endsley and Joan, the other day. They both remarked how they really felt that prayer made a huge difference in Al's recovery. Neither of them are particularly religious, so it goes to show how important it is to have folks praying. People feel it, even from a distance. Not sure how that all works, but I'll leave the mechanics of it to God.


Poor, old KJ. On top of all the other crap that's going down in his life at the moment he's had to visit the dentist for root canal work and the doctors for an "infection thingy." It never rains but it pours.


Spare a kind thought and a prayer for Sherry at A FEATHER ADRIFT who is suffering from a bad summer cold at the moment.



Pray for our young men and women who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, and for their families:

Sgt. Christopher R. Bell, 21, of Golden, Mississippi
Sgt. Joseph M. Garrison, 27, of New Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
Chief Warrant Officer Bradley J. Gaudet, 31, of Gladewater, Texas
Sgt. Joshua D. Powell, 28, of Quitman, Texas
Sgt. Jeffrey C. S. Sherer, 29, of Four Oaks, North Carolina
Spc. Devin A. Snyder, 20, of Cohocton, New York
Pfc. Robert L. Voakes Jr., 21, of L'Anse, Michigan
Chief Warrant Officer Kenneth R. White, 35, of Fort Collins, Colorado
Cpl. William J. Woitowicz, 23, of Middlesex, Massachusetts

Pray also for the fallen heroes also of our coalition partners, and for the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan who have died, unnamed and unknown to us, and for those who mourn ... and for an end to this endless war.


From AFP:

More than 100 Taliban armed with rocket launchers attacked a Pakistani checkpost near the Afghan border in South Waziristan on Thursday, triggering gunbattles that killed eight soldiers.

THE PRAYER LIST – 9TH. JUNE 2011 — 13 Comments

  1. Back from the quacks. Got one of the nicer podiatrists and, while she said that the wound was “clean”, she thought I should go on antibiotics just for safety’s sake. So, back on the -cillins, amoxi- and flucloxi-. I seem to tolerate them well but I hope that they will prevent any bugs from gaining hold.

    Thanks for the prayers, everyone.

  2. Suzer, I’ve had Al and his family on my daily prayer list all this time, and I’d wondered how he was doing. I couldn’t remember who had requested the prayers to ask, and I’m delighted to hear the the good news.

    Prayers for all.

  3. It’s wonderful, isn’t it, Grandmere? We are so happy and thankful that Al is doing well, and that his family received the support they needed. Thank you for including them on your prayer list. It definitely helped!

  4. And, as always, prayers ascend for all on the prayer list. May those who are ill find health and healing, may those who are grieving find comfort, and may God’s Mercy be with all who find themselves in need or want.

  5. My friend got her biopsy report – looks like surgery – may not be cancer but can’t tell yet. The tumors are taking her blood and making her anemic.

  6. I so hate to type this. My right leg was healed for all of one day. It is now open below where the last wound was. The new open spot is about
    2.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide — and bleeding.

    So back to the surgeon and probably the wound clinic. My gypsy fortune telling genes say another couple weeks in Una boot therapy. ;;sigh;;

    Please pray for healing as the alternative is titanium.


  7. Oh, what a bugger, Jim.
    Let us know if you do have to have more surgery.
    In the meantime, prayers from me today and I’ll add you to the Prayer List tomorrow.

  8. Ah, Jim, I’m sorry. Prayers for you, my friend. I’ll add you to my permanent prayers-for-healing list. You’re already on my prayers-for-jobs list. My lists are long, more’s the pity. So many people with so many needs….
