Requesting prayer...

UPDATE: 2/24/11 -- Thank you ALL so much for your prayers for my surgery! Everything went so well, and we sensed the Lord's presence and peace in a very real way!! God has blessed with a good recovery, and we're also praising the Lord that all my tests came back clear. Please rejoice with us! Thank you, again!
"Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD." Ps. 31:24

Well, this isn't our typical blog post...but this has not been a 'typical' week for our household!! In fact, it's been a week filled with visits to the doctor, emergency rooms, and now a surgery scheduled for this coming weekend! On this past Sunday morning, I [Abi] awoke with severe abdominal pain. Upon arriving at the ER and having several tests run--it was discovered that I have a 4 inch in diameter cyst inside of me. Surgery is scheduled for this Saturday morning (Feb. 5th). We would appreciate if you...our blog readers would be willing to uphold us before our Heavenly Father's throne! Specific prayer requests would be 1.) For God's peace to surround us 2.) Wisdom and skill for the doctor performing the surgery 3.) For my surgery, and recovery to go well!

Thank you in advance for supporting us in this way! We appreciate it!!!

"But you, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the one who lifts up my head. I cried to the LORD with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill." Ps. 3:3-4

I will pray for you, Abi. I remember my first major surgery and I know without a doubt that the prayers I knew were being said for me is what got me through. I had a peace about everything around me and confidence in the surgeon to do what he needed.

Praying for Josiah too, as I'm sure he is very concerned about you and the surgery too.

We're praying for you, Abi! I believe I had the same surgery as you did, just take it easy for a while and don't try to do too much. Praying you feel better soon!
