A Very Special Prayer Request

We have developed a wonderful
friendship and business relationship
with this couple.
Ken is a Lutheran minister 
and he is very sick.
Very.Sick.

He needs lots of prayers right now
 his wife, Lisa, and his children also need prayers.
He has been struggling with 
a debilitating illness
for several years.
Sometimes he is in the hospital for weeks at a time.
Right now he is in terrible pain
and they can't get it under control.
Ken may need another liver transplant
but that has not been decided as I am writing this.
He is funny, quick-witted and kind.
He's a good husband and a good father.

Please, please pray for all of them
Pray for the doctors to figure out 
WHY he is so sick.
Pray for his children that they are comforted.
and, last but not least,
please pray for our good friend, Lisa.
Pray that she stays strong and that she
finds some serenity in the midst of the chaos.

Thank you!
I will keep you updated on his condition
when I can.

  9. I hate that bad things happen to good people. I hate that people are so often in pain. I hate that their families suffer too and feel helpless and afraid. It's not fair.

    Praying for your friends Diana. (((Hugs)))

  41. I'm praying Ken will receive total healing. No pain and at rest. God is the comforter, healer and gives peace that passes all understanding. God, give the Drs. knowledge to find the answers needed we pray in Jesus name. Comfort his family and give them all strength. Let them know you are the answer for every situation. Amen.

  45. Diana, after reading your post and seeing how desperately Ken, Lisa and their children need prayer, I immediately stopped and prayed for this family. I will continue to pray for them as they struggle daily to cope with the effects of his illness and for Ken's doctors and care-givers, that they will be able to discover the cause of his illness and be able to do what is necessary to help him. I know, only too well, what such an illness can do to the entire family unit. They all suffer in so many ways. Please let them know we are lifting them up in prayer.

  46. As I began reading this post, my stomach began to churn. It's so reminiscent of my own life a few years back. Though my husband went through kidney disease and transplant, I know many who live the transplant life. So many things can happen and there are just no good answers. I, unfortunately lost my husband but I am praying and believing the KEN will be healed and stronger than ever. Praying for Lisa and their children as well!!!

  56. I have come to add the group of intentions from all members of our blogging community to my daily prayers. I will include Ken and Lisa. You are an angel for soliciting on their behalf. They are a beautiful family. God will hear "the prayers of the faithful" as he has promised.
