4 July 2009 - Special Prayer Requests
Please pray a prayer of thanksgiving for the independence of our country. Pray for those who have given their lives to make this independence and freedom a reality. Pray also that the people may follow God's will, not weaken and follow the Prince of this World who promises the impossible and delivers no good. Freedom is not free. It never was. It never will be.

Vera Zimmers is having surgery on Monday for early stage colon cancer. They will be doing it via laparoscopy where she will have 3-4 1/2 inch incisions and the one that will be 3-4 inches, where they will remove the portion of colon they will perform the resection on. They feel it is in stage 1 or 2 and if all goes well, they will keep her about 6 days to ensure there is no leakage or infection. The CT scan preliminary reading has all the other organs looking good. They will remove the portion of the colon and the lymph nodes to verify it has not spread. Please pray for peace of mind for Vera and her family; for guidance and perfection on the part of the surgical team and a good recovery.
