Father God, we pray for Barry at this most terrible time.  We pray that You will give him peace and consolation and wisdom to deal with all the many details and thoughts that are besetting him.  We pray also for Your grace and comfort for his wife and daughter and pray that You will give them strength to stand with Barry as he faces the ordeal ahead of him.  In Your mercy, Lord, we ask that Your perfect will be worked in Barry’s life and that divine healing will be his portion.  These things we offer to you, knowing that You are able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think.    Amen

From Terri Sebree:

Mom had an exploratory laparotomy last evening. The surgeon cleaned out areas of infection and put in a couple of drains. She is stable, on a vent in ICU. It is one day at a time. I have no idea of what the prognosis is. I don’t know if the doctors can even say at this point. Vitals are stable, blood pressure is a little low, but she is on morphine. She is being kept completely sedated.

Thank you for the prayers. We are being sustained and Mom is comfortable.

O Lord, our helper and our healer, we thank You for your protection for Terri’s mother.  We thank You for the wisdom You have given to the medical professionals caring for her, and we bless You for Your faithfulness.  We pray that Terri and her family will be sustained by Your loving and mighty hand during this time, and that they will feel Your love ever-present with them.  We pray this heavenly Father, in Your son Jesus Christ’s holy name.   Amen
