Hey smokem you have my prayers that ALL will go perfectly during your up coming bypass procedure in 3/31. I trust in the almight all powerful all knowing Lord to bring it about. There is a prayer area in the main forum at the top where you will get additional folks praying for you. Although I am sure plenty of folks will see this here and give you the prayer support that is needed.

It is by no means minor or insignificant surgery.
But it is one that they are getting good at.
Praying that your doctors are among the best and the results the best possible.

I had 5 bypasses almost two years ago. It is a surgery you will come through fine. My prayers are with you, stay strong in Him. It is very good news that they are planning to do it on a scheduled basis rather than an emergency. Mine was the same way. The waiting can be tough. I finally told my Doc "Let's get this over with".

Drop me a PM if you want to discuss.

Heavenly Father
I am honored to pray for my newly found brother in Christ. Thank you Lord for your sacrifice so that we can come to you and stand in your presence and pray. Dear Father, before I say anything more, let you receive all the glory and praise from this public prayer. I come to you today to pray for my friend. Father we know, if it be your will, just say the word and this man will be healed. Thank you Father for our friend Smokem so that we can come together and pray to you to remind us of the power of love. In Jesus' name we pray!

I pray that your quad bypass open heart surgery on 3/31/14 goes well and gives you a new lease on life. My grandfather had one 8 years before he left us, it was like someone flipped his memory switch back on. He remembered all of his old stories, and jokes. I hope you reap the same benefits. Please keep us updated on your surgery and recovery!

Hey Smokem,
I will pray for you that all will be well with you during the upcoming bypass surgery. I had surgery a few years ago and I had ask my Lord and Savior to comfort me during that time. The Lord is faithful to be with you in all things. I will pray that God will give you the same peace he gave me during my surgery. There is nothing like God being close to you in times like that. And as the bible states...with God all things are possible. Good luck and may God richly bless you today and every day.
