Today I have felt the prayers of the faithful. Once again I am lifted by you all. A few years ago, when the family was going through the time from heck, I first felt the upswelling of prayer, care and love from friends, family and others. Today good things like comfort, joy and laughter filled the air at Vacaville Kaiser. The surgical staff were a bunch of fun folks. The surgical nurse asked for prayer. The surgeon didn’t but received lots none the less. I gave Susan annointing prayer. Always remember the richness of the Prayer Book at times like these. Page 597, in the Family Prayer section, has the prayer for one about to undergo an operation, just above the birthday prayer. Use the BCP often for daily office, scripture reading and especially the prayers.
