Prayer Request

by Frank Turk

I don't want people posting prayers in the meta or anything, but my wife and kids went travelling this weekend (I stayed home to watch the bookstore and teach sunday school), and on the way to where they were going one of my kids started complaining about being itchy all over. That child has been fighting strep for about 3 weeks, and the antibiotics haven't licked it yet, but skin bumps after strep can be indicative of something worse.

Since you can't give that child a medical exam, restrain yourself from making diagnoses in the meta. My wife is seeking medical help; I'm seeking prayer help. Please pray for safe travel and for God to bring healing to my child.

It's times like that that we all feel sorta small. I'm glad we have a big God.

UPDATED: Not for nothin', but the diagnosis is "allegic reaction", and there's medicine involved to reduce the reaction. Thanks for prayer; thanks to God for being merciful.

God Bless you brother, and your family,

I understand that allergic reaction and rashiness with it having had that myself about 2 years ago [reactions to antibiotics in my case].
Very uncomfortable for a grown up and harder for a child no doubt. Thankful for medicines which can make such more bearable while getting through it.
Prayers even now for your family.

I also pray that "allergic reaction" would be healed along with the (maybe) strep.

Steve Scott said...

Praying for continuing mercy on all your family.

Kim said...

Glad everything turned out okay, Frank.

Allergic reactions can be very nasty and unpleasant for a little guy.

Praying for continued healing.

Stefan said...

Frank, I'm very sorry I didn't see this post until now. I was trying to keep off the Internet to catch up with my Bible reading.

I will pray for your son, too. God be with you and yours.

Daryl said...

Just read this now Frank. Count me in as one of the pray-ers.
