Just last week I wrote the following as part of my MMO:
I'm powerless this Monday morning, Lord,
just plain powerless..
I'm powerless over my friend's wait for a transplant,
powerless over the days becoming weeks becoming
months becoming years of waiting for a call
that does not come...
So I offer you my powerlessness
over my friend's need, Lord,
and I join my prayer to hers
that you will be powerful
where we are weak...
I'm pleased to tell you that this morning I received a text message from my friend's son, reporting that at 2:30 a.m. his mother went into surgery for a liver transplant (which appears to have gone well) to be followed (immediately) by a kidney transplant! Please pray for my friend that these transplants are successful - and praise God from whom all blessings flow!
