Prayer Request

A reader writes:

The father of a dear friend was diagnosed with a brain tumor last week. He is having the surgery to remove it today. The cause is unknown, and there are still many questions. The doctors are optimistic, but even with a perfect surgery, it will be a long recovery. It would mean a lot to have the prayers of you and your readers!

Father, hear our prayer for this man’s complete recovery in body, soul, and spirit. Give his caregivers grace, skill, understanding, wisdom, knowledge, skill, compassion, and the proper technology to assist his healing. Grant him and all who love him grace, peace, strength, faith, hope, and love. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for them. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    My brother, Joe, had a brain tumor removed about five years ago. Aside from a few lingering issues he’s dealing with, you wouldn’t know he had the surgery if you were around him. I know there’s no one-size-fits-all brain tumor, surgery or recovery process. Just sharing this as a means of providing a little hope – along with lots of prayers. God bless.

    Praying for your friend’s father and his family. Don’t lose hope. God has blessed medicine with some amazing abilities when it comes to dealing these situations. I had a vestibular schwannoma removed 3 years ago. Though the procedure was very invasive (nobody likes the idea of someone sawing a hole into your skull and cutting away at things around the brain), it has helped me immensely and I thank God daily for the gift. I do have some permanent side-effects from the tumor (mostly hearing loss, dizziness, ear ringing and some facial weakness). But, I have been able to continue with my job and better yet, I have the energy to do things with my family which was really suffering before the surgery. Tust Jesus no matter what, He is with you all.
