Please lift me up prayer friends

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.

Please lift me up prayer friends

Post by Meridian_Mike » Mon May 03, 2021 8:24 pm

Hello everyone!
Nothing really serious. I just had surgery last week for a hernia and I was expecting to waltz home from the hospital like nothing had happened.
WELL... I sorta underestimated the effect the surgery would have on me. I guess at 65, am just not superman anymore....LOL.
It has been a good bit harder to recover from this surgery than any I can remember.

Getting old ain't for sissies!

Could y'all please join with me in asking God to help me recover from this surgery so I can get back to my normal life (such as it is).....
I have work to do and knives to fix!!

God bless you all!!!!!!

Mike

Praying for you Mike. ::tu::

"Then shall your light break forth like the dawn, and your healing shall spring up speedily;
Sixyour righteousness shall go before you, the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard."

Thanks you so much for the thoughts and prayers my friends!

I am finally back at work today. I had to take a detour by the dentists office this morning but I am much better in general.

We had some nasty weather move through our area yesterday but God took care of me and my family!

God is GOOD!!!

God bless you all, my friends!
