Prayer for my Daughter-in-Law.

There are times in each of our lives that rain falls, hard times come and it helps to reach out to our friends and to our God for a little support. This is the place to express those needs, concerns and situations so others in the AAPK family can keep you in their prayers.

Prayer for my Daughter-in-Law.

Postby djknife13 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 12:14 pm

My Son was deployed again this past week along with my Grandson. My Daughter-in-Law has faced this several times before and once before when both her husband and son went off together, but this time it has really hit her hard. It's not a long relatively speaking deployment (months, not a year) but this one has really hit her hard. She is also dealing with her Mom who just got out of the hospital and still has some serious issues. Her Mom was hospitalized for nearly a month. I'm struggling a little with my son's deployment myself because my son and I work together as carpenters, and at 70 years old I've grown to depend on him more each year and I really miss working every day with him. I have several buildings to put up this summer and it just hasn't worked out to find someone to replace him for the summer. I'll be fine, but it's hard to see my kids struggle and there is little beyond prayer to do to help. We want so badly to tell God how we want Him to handle our prayer requests and His ways are so far above ours, that it's hard to see Him leading us on the road ahead sometimes and it gets scary to walk it. Thank you for your prayers. ___Dave

“True prayer supplies God with work...God has not to be coerced, persuaded against His will to aid His children. He is more anxious to help than we are to ask.”

Will you post their first names, so we can better pray?
Or, just post their initials.

Thanks.

Prayers for those deployed and those left at home. Was their deployment far away or down here to the border?

Dave, we will be praying for your family and of course all of our troops wherever around the world. God bless those deployed and those they leave behind.

Dave, I pray for your son and grandson as well as your daughter-in-law - may God be with them. Having relatives in the military, I know deployment is often more difficult for family members than for those deployed, and all serve in their own way. May God's everlasting Grace comfort your family.

That's tough to feel helpless in a situation like this. While I was never deployed overseas, I was TDY a lot my first year of marriage, and my wife had a hard time with it.

I will pray for the safety of your son, and for God to watch over your daughter-in-law and put her mind at ease.

Thanks guys. I went TDY back in my Air Force days about every other month but they were one to two weeks trips and never outside the country. I might have stayed in the military if it wasn't for the travel and being away from my kids so much when they were growing up. Thank God for people who are willing and able to do some of these jobs that our country depends on. ____Dave

Another development with my son and his family; my daughter-in-law had a heart attack last night and the Dr's put two stints in to correct an 80% blockage. She will likely be in the hospital only for a short time because they caught it so fast. She is really carrying a load with her husband and son both deployed and her Mom still sick and on dialysis with kidney failure. My daughter-in-law Melody, is an only child and her Mom isn't married so everything with her Mom falls on her. Us old people are suppose to be getting heart attacks, not our kids. I'll be really glad when this summer is over and my kids are back home. Thanks again for your prayers. ____Dave

Oh boy, that is really tough, she is not getting any breaks. I'm glad they caught it fast. Really sad though...

I was gone most of this week visiting my mother and father. Sorry I missed this, AAPK just doesn’t look the same on a cell phone and I miss stuff all the time.
I will be praying for Melody, her mom and your whole family. Something this huge kind of affects every!
I will be prayers for healing, prayers for safety and prayers for quick and safe returns home.

Thanks guys. Jane and I both went to the hospital yesterday morning. Melody was up sitting and in good spirits. If all goes well through this morning she may be going home today. It was a classic heart attack with chest pains and then radiating down her arm. The Dr said the heart vessel was more like 90 to 95% restricted. Prayers and quick decisive action by my Grand-daughter saved her life. This really shook up my son and grandson being so far away and not sure what all was happening. ___Dave
