Update

As of 11:00 p.m. eastern, my brother is still in the emergency room. He is not allowed visitors. His immune system has been compromised by a raging infection in his kidneys, bladder, and prostate. Doctors found a golf ball sized tumor on his prostate. A specialist in infectious diseases has been called and is on the case.

Thank for your kind words and prayers.

It will be a long night.

  13. Dear Lord,

    You know his brother so much better than I do. You know his sickness and the burden he carries. You also know his heart. Lord, I ask you to be with him now as you work in his life. Lord, let your will be done in his life. If there is a sin that needs to be confessed and forgiven, please help him to see his need and confess.

    Lord, I pray for his brother just as your Word tells me to pray, for healing. I believe you hear this earnest prayer from my heart and that it is powerful because of your promise. I have faith in you, Lord, to heal him, but I also trust in the plan you have for his life.

    Lord, I don't always understand your ways. I don't know why he has to suffer, but I trust you. I ask that you look with mercy and grace toward my friend. Nourish his spirit and soul in this time of suffering and comfort him with your presence.

    Let him know you are there with him through this difficulty. Give him strength. And may you, through this difficulty, be glorified in his life and also in mine.

    Amen.
