Prayer Requests for Good Friend and Co-Worker
June 27,2018 | Self

Posted on 06/27/2018 5:51:47 PM PDT by WayneM

This prayer request is for a good (the best) friend and co-worker.

Despite regular eye exams, my friend Frank found out he has glaucoma in both eyes very early this year. He has been yanked around, in my opinion, by both insurance company and doctors. The medications have not worked very well, and the first surgery did very little to stem the preesure in his eyes.

As a result, he has lost permanently much of his vision in the last few months.

One of his last hopes was a doctor at a very well respected university out of state. Today this Dr. told my friend that he was legally blind and cannot drive any more, (he has to drive 80+ miles round trip to work). He will be starting my friend on a different medication combo, but for now, no surgery.

My friend is a wonderful man and a devout Christian. He is kind and patient, and very giving, and has many wonderful qualities. Despite many trials in his life, he remains good humored and displays no noticeable self pity.

Please join me in praying that our Lord, God and Savior, in his infinite mercy and wisdom, reach out and touch Frank with his healing hand and helps my friend in this difficult time.

I prayed.

I am a “glaucoma suspect” and pray that he will recover his sight.

You are a good friend to enlist the good people here to help.

I will remember your dear friend in my prayers tonight.

Please get involved in services for the visually impaired in your community. They can help your friend and help you help him.

I am also a glaucoma potential...my doctor says it is controllable with meds...I am curious why that did not work for your friend. Praying.

I know there is power in individual prayer, and an even greater power from groups gathered in His name.

I also know there is a strong faith community here at Free Republic.

That is why I posted this request here. Just wish I had done it sooner.

I don’t really have an explanation for why this has played out this way. He has been on several meds and also has had laser surgery on both eyes.

It has all come on so fast, and despite all efforts, still not under control.

I guess this is just one more good example of why we cannot put all our faith in modern medicine.
