I was passing by one of my co-workers and joked with him about being "out of uniform". He told me he had had a heart attack 2 weeks ago and was scheduled to have his pacemaker changed during surgery to remove some blockage from his arteries this Thursday or next Monday. I asked Fred if I could let people know about it so they could be praying for him. He looked at me like I was crazy and laughed, "Why the h-ll not? I have been getting more religious lately!" With another co-worker, we joked about God making sure Fred came through surgery ok just to get all these praying people off His back.
But then we began to talk about God and Jesus and how some things just make you believe, like the stars in the sky and the miracle of a baby born, and the incredible bodies we have. According to Fred, "Makes it hard to think there was just some giant explosion and then when the dust cleared, here's all these things that are so amazing. Makes you know that there had to be Someone behind all this that we know."
So, if you would, please be praying for Fred...for his heart to be healed through surgery and for his heart to be filled with a great relationship with his Physician and Rescuer.
