Please Cover Me In Prayer
Woke up this morning no worse than I laid down last night. It was a rough night of off and sleep. I think I’ve gained back some mobility in my neck & left shoulder. I just keep having to ice, ice, and ice. This area is so sore, but fortunately trending the right direction. I thank God for any sleep I did get with this condition.
Now, the greatest challenge still lies ahead. Just a couple hours from now I’ve got to preach the first of two back to back worship services. I’m not freaking out because I’ve preached many times in a lot worse condition. Yet, this is an entirely new condition due to the pinch in my neck. I certainly can’t rely on my strength or power for things to be effective.
God has given me a powerful message that I don’t want to hinder in any way. My medications of course have me a little groggy this morning. The pain is very uncomfortable and could easily distract me from being able to focus. Please join me in praying that God will be glorified regardless of my pain. I thank you for any prayers offered on my behalf.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3:20–21).
