Prayer for Tricia

Tricia asked me to post the following:

> Tricia's lungs have been hurting for the past few weeks. It's hard to describe, especially since most of us (myself included) have never experienced this kind of pain, but it's usually a sign of an infection, even though the cultures have yet to really show anything. The pain can be debilitating (even for her).

> Tricia has been taking some sleeping meds at night the past week, but it is not helping very much. She needs her sleep at night so that she can be as active as possible during the day.

Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers for us!

Nate

Praying for you extra hard now, Tricia!

I get lung pain every so often and they almost never find infection. They prescribed 800mg of Ibuprofen (to reduce swelling) per day and that did the trick for me. I haven't had lung pain at all since I started taking ita few months ago. Just something else for ya'll to think about. :)

"Abba, Your Word tells us that you give rest to those you love. We know you love Tricia.I ask you now according to your Word that you would in fact clear up any infections or conditions that are causeing Tricia discomfort so that she may rest. Lord strengthen her body to be able to recieve her transplant and recover from the operation. Lord we thank you that you have been so faithful and that you have spoken words of life over this family. Jesus sustain them for the things that are yet to come. Encourage them when they feel discouraged. Help them to trust in you when them feel afarid. Continue to use thier lives as a testimony to the world of Your love and grace. Provide for them according to Your riches in glory. Thank you Lord that you have choosen them to publically acknowledge you and that they have been obedient. Thank you Lord for precious little Gwyneth.Thank you that you love her even more than her parents do.Finally Jesus, thank you that I have many brothers and sister who will read this and agree with me in prayer for these things. Thank you for the Body of Chirst

Your always on my heart. Our lives are very much the same and I can understand a lot of the things you are or have gone through. I know exactly how you are feeling with your lungs hurting, that pain is more with me then not. Hang on there, I'm praying for both of our "new" lungs to come soon. God's timing is never too early and never late. Thank you for holding onto Christ and shining so brightly.
"Because he loves me, "says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation." Ps.91:14-16
