Will You Please Pray For Me?

Will You Please Pray For Me?

Okie dokie, I’m going to be completely shameless and ask you all to pray for me. And ask everyone you know to pray for me. And ask everyone they know to pray for me. Okay, just kidding, well sort of.

My upcoming surgery has me thinking a lot about my Mom. I keep thinking how I wish my Mom was the one going in for a surgery that would save her from a battle with cancer that ultimately took her life. But she’s not. She’s in heaven now.

When she was battling cancer, I would have given anything to trade places with her. Anything. But I couldn’t. I stood completely helpless. Completely powerless. The only thing left to do was pray.

No one believed in the power of prayer more than my Mom.

And I know with certainty in her final moments, that she felt the prayers that were pouring in for her. Countless churches, homes, communities, prayer groups, friends, relatives and strangers were all praying for my Mom. I will forever be grateful at the outpouring of love and support for my Mom.

I too believe in the power of prayer. Which is the reason for this post.

I ask that you please pray for a successful surgery for me with no complications and a quick recovery. Please pray for the surgeons, the operating staff, the reconstruction team, the anesthesiologist, any and everyone you can think of involved in this procedure.

Please pray one silent prayer or Tweet it, Facebook it, Blog it to ask others to do the same. Whatever you are willing to do, I would really appreciate it.

I feel a little silly asking for prayer for myself but to be completely honest, I’m scared.

This surgery is so deeply personal. And this surgery is so very important. It is critical to get every possible cell that could turn into cancer. I figure it couldn’t hurt to ask for prayers to ensure that happens.

So if you wouldn’t mind sending a prayer my way, I would be most grateful.

Thank you.

Love, b

    You got it, girl! Praying that God leads all the surgical staff throughout your process and that you have a speedy and uneventful recovery!
