    I just found out today that my pastor has to have emergency quadruple bypass surgery. He wasn't at Wed. evening service because he wasn't feeling well, but we had no idea it was as serious as it is. He checked himself into the hospital today because he was feeling worse and starting to have chest pain. They discovered that he has four blocked arteries. We could use prayers for him, his family and our church.

    ilovenxstage, your pastor was very wise to head to the hospital; I'm so thankful he didn't wait. I pray that he will get the best help available--that God would guide the minds and hands of those tending to him.

    I share this story to give you encouragement: My father had a six-way bypass when he was 72...he'd just finished his junior year in college, and it was finals week! That was the end of May...and by September, he was back in class for his senior year and made it to graduation and many years beyond.

    May God surround him with His healing arms and bring him through the surgery. I have been there having had three by-pass grafts and a tissue valve rebuild, too, back in 1998. I saved my life and, looking bakc on it, was a breezed.

    God will look over your preacher and watch out for him. I will keep a place in my prayers for him.

    Ro 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

    Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

    My wife and I will pray for your pastor - as we do for our great nation. Let's all find out what happens when we collectively pray for this good man...and our great (It STILL is!!) nation. God Bless America and this pastor, his family, and his flock.

    Your Servant in Christ,

    Thank you all for your support and prayers. I haven't heard anything on his condition yet, but he was supposed to have the operation today, or tomorrow morning. I plan to visit him when he's stable. I'll post updates on his condition. Again, thanks for the kind support.

    God bless you all.
