Joel is waiting, as I write (27th. April), to go down to surgery to have a catheter stuck in the big vein in his groin and have it pushed through his body, up to his heart, so they can look around and see what's going on. He is nervous (scared).

And, as for my part, I will pray by going to visit a 94 year-old friend, another friend in hospice and conduct a funeral this afternoon.

I pray also for F,B,B,S,K,R,M, for the family whose 8YO daughter lost the war on cancer and won eternal life --for her family, friends, teachers and school community, for A,F,L.

Today (27th. April) is the fifth anniversary of my sister Gayle's passing. With courage, she fought off lymphoma 17 years before she died from pancreatic cancer. Please pray for her husband, Frank and her three children, two grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Please pray for me and for her many friends who still miss her.



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

Eight U.S. troops and an American contractor were killed early Wednesday when a veteran Afghan military pilot fired on trainers during a meeting in a military compound near Kabul International Airport. The Taliban claimed responsibility.



Israel has ruled out negotiations with any Palestinian government that includes Hamas group, just hours after the militant group agreed to join its rival Fatah in an interim administration.


From UKPA:

Twelve protesters were killed when Yemeni security forces opened fire on a massive anti-government demonstration in the capital Sanaa. Another 190 were injured as about 100,000 opponents of the government filled a square at the centre of the uprising on Wednesday, spilling into the streets around the state TV building.

THE PRAYER LIST – 28TH. APRIL 2011 — 6 Comments

  1. Prayers ascending.

    For Joel, I have had an angioplasty, and while the description is sort of scary, the event is not. The procedure does not even qualify as “surgery” and the doctors who do it are “interventional cardiologists,” not “surgeons. I felt fine the next day.

    The really good news is that they can do a lot of repairs through the vein route without any additional cutting. I have a copper coil (yes think bootleggers!) in an artery that was implanted that way. It massively changed the circulation in my heart in a good way.

    Special prayers for Joel.


  2. Thank you Jim –and yes, good news –Joel is home tonight –walking up and down the stairs like a champ! He had a stint put in one of his ascending something or others, and now feels pretty good!

    Thank you, MP, for this continued circle of prayer.
