Prayer request for my knee

September 7, 2006 at 10:29 am (Faith, My ramblings, Prayers)

Over the last 5 and half years, I have been to 5 orthopedic surgeons, had 3 operations, 5 cortisone injections, 5 synvisc injections and countless hours of physical therapy for my right knee. I have been in pain virtually every day for the last several years and it has been a difficult journey for me. The Lord is gracious to me and has given me strength to not have to take pain medication. I know it would be perfectly ok for me to do so but with as a recovering drug addict, the thought scares me silly and after being in constant pain, I can see why people with chronic pain become addicted to it.
Last week, I received a letter from my doctor that his office will no longer participate with my health insurance. At first, I was upset but I am now looking at it as an opportunity to find a specialist that will help me. The reason I am blogging this is to not complain but to ask for your prayers. Please pray that God would give me wisdom about which doctor to see next. A dear man in my church is on the board at Johns Hopkins and he has referred me to several doctors there. Please pray that they will accept my health insurance. The insurance companies have paid out over $50,000 for my knee already and my out of pocket expenses have been in the thousands.
I know the Lord will use my situation for His glory and I am fully convinced that His grace is sufficient for me. Please pray for me and if you feel led, post your prayer here. Thanks.
Romans 8:28, And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.
2 Corinthians 4:17, For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

    Dear Father,
    You invite all who are burdened to come to You.
    Allow Your healing hand to heal Rachel.
    Touch her soul with Your compassion.
    Touch her heart with Your courage and infinite love for all.
    Touch her mind with Your wisdom,
    that her mouth may always proclaim Your praise.
    Teach her to reach out to You in her need,
    and help her to lead others to You by her example.
    Most loving Heart of Jesus, bring Rachel health in body and spirit
    that she may serve You with all her strength.
    Touch gently her life which You have created,
    In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
