Keep Friends & Neighbors in Your Prayers

There have been numerous studies over the years that have investigated whether the power of prayer works. Researchers like Dr. Elizabeth Targ in San Francisco selected practicing healers from a number of traditions Christians, Buddhists, Jews, Indian shamans and had them pray for 20 patients with advanced AIDS and compared their progress to a control group of 20 other AIDS patients. According to her, the prayed-for patients had fewer and less severe new illnesses, fewer doctor visits, fewer hospitalizations and were generally in better moods than those in the control group. "Prayer may be an effective adjunct to standard medical care," says cardiac researcher William Harris, Ph.D., who headed a study of cardiac patients at St. Luke's Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. Harris concluded that the group receiving prayers fared 11% better than the group that didn't, a number considered statistically significant.

We'd like to believe that prayers do help, and here is a friend and neighbor who could use your prayers now.

Prayers Still Needed by the Stewarts

Cherie & Richard Thank You All

The Stewarts thank you all for your prayers and support. Richard came through the surgery well, but he still has the issue of the infection in his heart to clear up. After a few days in the hospital, he is back home. If he went to rehab, Cherie wouldn't be allowed to visit him, so they opted for home physical therapy and health care. Hopefully, with your prayers, he will continue to improve and regain his strength... keep those prayers coming, please....

Cherie appreciated that people didn't call her during this ordeal as she was on the phone with Richard's family constantly. Things were stressful enough without reiterating updates for concerned friends. Thank you for your consideration.

Richard Stewart was taken to the hospital with intense abdominal pain a few days ago, where they diagnosed gallstones. With Richard's other health problems, he was transferred to Orlando. The doctors there concurred, but found more problems that were more urgent and that caused an infection, as well. He is going to have dangerous and very serious surgery on Friday, October 16th.

Cherie has been going back and forth to the hospital and is utterly exhausted, so please do not call her. But you can do something. Cherie urgently asks for your prayers. Please pray that Richard survives the surgery and is able to recover, and that both he and Cherie can stay strong throughout this ordeal.
