Prayer Request — Norm Fisher’s Surgery tomorrow

normDear all BJS readers — Tomorrow our own Norm Fisher, tech guru and master of all things web-related is going to be having a triple bypass surgery.  Norm is a fine Christian man.  His gifts and talents have been very useful in the world of Confessional Lutheranism and most of his work goes unseen.  He humbly does his part and doesn’t expect accolades (but we still try to give them).  A good example for the rest of us for sure.  So as you say your prayers today and tomorrow, please include a prayer for Norm (and his family, especially his wife Karla) as he undergoes this procedure.

 

From Lutheran Service Book:

Lord Jesus Christ, hear our prayers on behalf of Your servant Norm as he undergoes surgery.  Bless him with faith in Your loving kindness and protection.  Endow the surgeon and the medical team with ability and skill so that, according to Your will, this surgery may bring Your servant a full restoration of health and strength; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.  Amen.

Prayer Request — Norm Fisher’s Surgery tomorrow — 11 Comments

  1. Norm’s humble service has certainly been a blessing to our family. We hope you know how much we appreciate all you do, Norm. Please know that you’re in our prayers as well.

    Thank you for letting us know, Pastor Scheer. Please keep us updated.

  2. Stormin’ Norman –

    “This is the day which the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

    My friend – you are getting a “new heart” for the second time in your lifetime, first in your Holy Baptism, and again – today. I know you are being held up before the Holy Throne in the prayers of a ton of fellow saints right now – myself humbly joining their voices.

    What Pastor Scheer wrote – “He humbly does his part and doesn’t expect accolades (but we still try to give them)” is something I knew as fact over 20 years ago.

    As we all pray that the Lord be with you, and with the surgeons and nurses, we also know He is already with all of us.

    Take your time, heal well, and be at peace.

    Pax tecum – Jeff Baxter (jb)

  3. From Karla his wife:
    Norms heart surgery went well. He is doing ok so far. It will be touch and go for a few days, but, so far he has progressed faster than they expected. When they took him off of the bypass machine today, his heart beat on its own immediately. The Dr was amazed. He said usually they have to shock it to get it going again.
    He is in intensive care, and will be there for most likely 3 days. They have already been able to start to wean his medicines that they give you after this kind of surgery for a day or so, but they are taking it slow.
    So far so good. Please keep praying for his full recovery.

  4. Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. (3 John 1:2)
