Please Pray for My Mother-in-Law

I like to use my blog as a humor release.  Something upbeat.  Something that I enjoy as a hobby.  Today, my funny life became serious.  Our lives became a prayer for mercy and understanding.  My mother-in-law is in critical condition after a severe stroke.  We've been with her all day, and the tests have been coming back inconclusive as far as where the bleeding is coming from.
Tonight, we're jealous for your prayers.  I haven't been so bold in my beliefs before on my blogs, but this is where the pedal meets the metal.
  
 Mr. Palindrome and I believe that God hears our prayers.  We believe that He will interceed for my MIL.
We believe he knows the hairs on her head (even the ones they've shaved to drain her bleeding on the brain). 
 Please pray for her recovery and her comfort.  Please pray for my new family as we all come to terms with our loved one in a hospital  bed with few earthly answers. 
 Please pray for God to reveal himself to us in our meager and grim situation. 

I'll update again tomorrow after we hear a more definitive prognosis.  Thank you all for caring and praying.

  11. i haven't commented on here yet, but i'm a follower from weddingbee...

    thanks for sharing your concerns and heart. i know several bloggers who avoid sharing spiritual matters, but i'm encouraged by your openness. i don't think we really can separate the spiritual from our everyday lives.

    your mother in law is in my prayers this afternoon, and as often as you all come to mind.

    blessings to you.

  12. Praying for your MIL and the rest of your family. I have spent my fair share of time sitting next to a hospital bed, and it's so hard. Hang in there!
