A Prayer For Lydia

Sometimes, I go to the garden to pray. My niece has a flesh eating bacterial infection, a severe burn complication, that is not responding to massive doses of antibiotics which is limb threatening even life threatening. Please join me in a prayer for her.

A Prayer For Lydia

Oh, God, our Great Physician,
As you surround Lydia with your healing power,
let her be filled with the peace that passes understanding as her body restores itself.
Provide her with those physicians you have blest with knowledge and healing hands for this purpose.
Grant Lydia’s beloved family, who beseech you on her behalf, the desire of their heart,
for they long to rejoice in her wholeness and your glory.

    Hi Donna,
    I prayed with you as I read your prayer, and am glad for the update. I’m trying to remember if I’ve been on your blog before. I visit so many, and don’t keep up well. I love your blog!

    Thank you for the comfort of your prayers. Lydia’s culture report was negative/no staph. She must continue this round of antibiotics and hopefully be well.
