Saturday Prayers

Loved Ones,

We have some answers to prayer and some prayer requests. Ray's vomiting has been much better, praise the Lord! He had a comfortable day and night last night and it has been controlled by medicines, without the need for any further procedures.

However, Ray's MRI taken last night showed that he had a very small stroke. Ray did not have any symptoms so we probably would not have caught it, but this gives us an opportunity to see what may have caused it and prevent future such events. Ray will have a battery of tests to look at causes tomorrow. We pray that the cause can be found and anything else prevented.

We have not yet heard the results of the scans taken today to determine the chemotherapy effectiveness. Ray's liver numbers, which had risen in the past few days, came down a little last night so that was good news. We pray so strongly that these scans will show that the chemotherapy has made progress against the cancer.

We pray for God to sustain us here in the hospital and for his healing hand to rest on Ray.

We are so thankful for all of your prayers and we know that God hears.

“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit.” Ephesians 3:16

not alone and not afraid --
