I believe that if I seek God I can find a better way to live and I ask Him daily to assist me in living a [balanced] and sober life. (Daily Reflections, 6 May)
Lord, today and the in the days ahead we ask that you give courage and strength to our friend as he submits to heart surgery. Guide the surgeons hands and the health care professional hearts. Comfort and give courage to family and friends. We give thanks for the skills and tools of modern medicine which make such surgery possible. We ask this in the name of Jesus, who, in his time and to this day, brought healing to so many.
