Prayer request..... for me, this time.


Hi there there, for the past twenty years or so, a few invaders have decided to come and visit my body.

So with that in mind I would be very pleased and genuinely thankful if any member would remember me just once in a while, in your prayer list.

I don't really think of these invaders every single day, besides I am sure I heard God tell me one time I have another 25 years ahead of me.
At 74 years of age...25 years will do me nicely.

OK....
High blood pressure.
Internal bleeding.
Enlarged Prostrate.
Type two Diabetes.
Bleeding Polyps in the bowel.
A heart attack in 2006 has
left me with Unstable Angina.
Several small ulcers in the stomach, they just refuse to heal.
Sciatica in my back and hip.
Nerve damage at the base of my of my spine.
Enlarged Prostrate.
Crushing tiredness, caused by diabetes.
I used to have severe migraine headaches just above my right eye accompanied by terrible bouts of throwing up. I later learned the yeast in alcohol was the cause.

I just laugh at all these invaders who decided to visit me, though.
Other than God, laughing at them all is the only way I know of coping and, providing this request is acceptable to Him and\or in His plans for me, a prayer or two on my behalf would most assuredly be beneficial and greatly appreciated.

In closing, I always knew some day in the future there would be a heavy price to pay for abusing my reasonably young body with alcohol.
That day began twenty years ago, so I prepared myself..... it came as no surprise at all.
I would still like to request some prayers on my behalf, though.

I pray that you, and all of us, have as many years ahead of us as possible to glorify our Lord and savior.
