My new found love for 10th Avenue North's song "Worn" has grown stronger over the past week. My Grandpa is facing surgery on his heart sometime this week and this song captures all of the weaknesses in our life and how they just wear us out. Obviously, Grandpa is terrified, as are all of us family members.
Prayer is much appreciated for this situation. Despite his physical and mental strength, Grandpa needs the help of the ultamate Healer.
"Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed." 1 Peter 1:13
Dear Heavenly Father, I'm placing my hope, trust, fears, and other insecurities in you Lord. Be his healer and be our guide through this process. Put your hand of peace on Grandma as she stands by and watches her husband endure this trial. Be with us as his kids and grandkids, and give us the perserverance and hope to make it through this scary time. Take our hope and place it in you! Amen.
"God did not give you a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, love and a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7
