Here's a special prayer request for my dad. As stated in the subject line he reminds me a lot of Jim Bramlett. He is a very godly man and raised his 5 boys in the way of God's word. He's 75 . . . . sorry Jim, no reflection on your age . . . (grin).
I've sent this email to a number of other groups requesting prayer so I've pasted the rest of the email below.
Thanks to all who pray.
Leonard, I have a prayer request for my dad, Stanley. He's had a recurring prostate infection that has been going on now for almost a year. As any man knows who's had a prostate infection, they are very difficult to heal due to the location and the amount of limited blood flow that reaches that area. Not only that but the infection is often very painful and affects quite a number of other areas of the body. Often the infection is accompanied by a lack of energy, overall lethargy, sometimes nausea, sweats and a number of other symptoms that come and go over time. Dad has had the whole range of them. Like I said, for most of a year. Considering his age, 75, it has taken a toll on his health. If you would, please put him on the prayer list until further notice. We serve an awesome God Who is our ultimate Healer. I know Dad will appreciate the prayers and I will too.
To all prayer warriors. Thanks for praying. I will update as God works. . . . and He ALWAYS does.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a persons strength.
