Prayer Request


Christian is scheduled to have surgery on both eyes (due to glaucoma) on Monday, April 28. The doctor will do a thorough eye exam to see if surgery is even necessary before she proceeds. Please pray for the following areas.

1) Christian stays healthy for the procedure.
2) He possibly won't need surgery in both eyes.

3) Guidance for the doctors as they insert a stent in order to control his eye pressure.
3) There will be no complications, but a quick recovery.

4) If surgery is necessary, pray that he will have peace having to wear patches on his eyes for 24 hours.
5) This procedure will result in long-term improvements of his vision for God's glory.



Thank you so much! I'll keep you updated.

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer.
I Peter 3:12a

Not only will I pray during regular devotion, but each time I think of Christian, which is quite often, I will pray for him. He is my "first" grandchild and has a very special place in my heart.

We have been praying for Christian. Sara told us at dinner that she prayed for him at school when she was in the bathroom. I don't need to convince her she can talk to God anywhere or anytime! Hope all went well.
Love,
Jackie
