Needing Prayer

We may just have to go around that wall.  The person holding up what I need has been told to "just do it", but now time is a factor.  It just may not get done.  I'm coming to some peace about it, I think.  If I have to go in without it, then I go  in without it and just keep going!  I think that is the key - not quitting moving forward.

But we still need prayer.  I have now three of my kids still very sick with a tummy bug.  My oldest has been on clear fluids for three days and is still throwing up.  He's 13, so he is also moaning about wanting to eat.

A few years ago, well, nine to be exact, I gave birth to my third son.  There were complications in how he decided to come out, and as a result, they broke my tailbone to retrieve him.  For three years after that, I had sciatic nerve pain that would last for months at a time.  I also had a lot of pain in my tailbone area.  After three years, the frequency and severity of these attacks have lessened, but I still get them.  A week ago, it started up again.  It is about as bad as it has ever been.  Sitting is very painful.  Standing is painful.  Everything hurts and there is little relief even with drugs.  And I am about to step into a plane for two days of travel.

I need your prayers.

thanks

Sounds like you are getting a lot of opposition! I suffer with back/hip pain, too, and it's NOT FUN...I will be praying!
