A Call to Prayer and A Call for Prayer

Today, I'm posting over at Naptime Diaries about the prayer movement I posted about last week (if you missed what I'm talking about, just click here). I am incredibly honored that Jessi has given me an opportunity to post on her blog, she as amazing woman of God who I truly look up to. I hope you'll head over to Jessi's blog to read my post. 

I have been so blessed by all of your comments and prayer request submissions through the prayer page. It means a lot that so many of you trust me with your inner hopes, desires, and fears; and it means even more that you trust me to carry these things to our Lord.  
Please remember that this prayer page is available 24/7. You can access this page by clicking the "prayer" tab up top and filling in the form. Again, your submission are only visible to me. 

Today, I am asking for your prayers for my Dad. About 3 weeks ago he went in for surgery for a severe case of diverticulitis. He was supposed to spend a week in recovery, but that week passed and more issues occurred. Unfortunately, multiple abscesses (spots of infection) have been found and drained, and there is still more to get rid of. He will undergo another laproscopic procedure this week to get rid of an abscess near his lung.

I don't want to get into a lot of detail for the sake of the privacy of my family but I would most certainly appreciate your prayer. My Dad is sick and we're just ready for him to be home. We're ready for the doctors to figure out what is causing the infection and if I'm being honest, I'm a little angry that they still haven't figured it out. I know I'm not a doctor, but I feel like it's taking too long. However, griping does nothing, but prayer can do a lot. I ask that you prayer for my father and his health. I ask that you pray for his doctors as they continue to treat him. I ask that you pray for my family, and specifically my mother, as we continue to deal with his sickness and time in the hospital.

Thanks to all of you prayer warriors. 
Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated more than you could know.
