Special Prayer for Glenn

Glenn has asked for all of us to say a special and specific prayer of healing for him today. We praise the Lord that he has experienced some very significant improvements over the past week, such as healing in his mouth and an encouraging increase in his neutrophil levels. We also praise the Lord that his stem cells are reportedly engrafting!

But right now Glenn is experiencing problems with his lungs. Doctors have been unable to identify the source of the problem--all they know is that it seems to be some kind of infection. It is causing Glenn to have severe coughing fits and it is also making it very difficult for him to breathe. He has to sleep sitting up because when he lays down he feels as if he is drowning.

Pray that the Lord will heal Glenn's lungs by the end of today. We do not always offer our Lord such specific or such time sensitive prayers but we cannot forget that we serve a God for whom nothing is impossible.

So please, pray that today will be a day of healing for Glenn and that the Lord will rid his body of all problems and infections.

I have only been reading this blog for a few weeks, but I have prayed and will continue to pray that God will reach down adn touch Glenn. May he heal him quickly and completely.

Thanks, Adele. We're definitely praying. Because it's been posted publicly, I've taken the liberty to put the prayer request on our church's prayer chain.
