I am having a reoccurrence of ear eczema something I had last June and got treatment for. Can't sleep easily and am uncomfortable. Please pray the pain and itching will subside and my dermatologist will be able to take me in to check and treat this condition tomorrow or asap.

porter..who appreciates your prayers.

Prayers for our friend Porter. I am so far behind on the prayer forum I will never catch up. Prayers for all other posters - I can't respond to them individually.

The dermatologist couldn't take me until Thursday so I am trying to get into my primary care physician today. Not really sure now what it is and hope they can help me.

Painful and itches a lot. Hard to sleep.

Thanks for tips..may try that later after they examine me.

Appreciate prayers. Thank you so much.

God bless all.

Update: Good news (sort of)...My primary care physician was out of town so I ended up going to an emergency walk in clinic.

It was not ear eczema. My ear was severely infected because something had gotten lodged in there. The procedure to get it out was difficult..almost fainted..but it was dislodged. The Dr., nurse, nor I could tell for sure what it was. I do remember a large insect (might have been a small bee) attacking my ear on our deck late last summer..and it may have gotten in there and died..strange.

Now I am using special medication in that ear with anti-biotics to help heal it and clear up the infection. The really good news is that I can hear better in that ear now.

So, God did guide us to the right place and in good time so that the infection didn't get worse.

Thanks so much for those prayers.

Your friend in Christ,

Mary Jo (Porter)

Glory to God!

I am so far behind on typing prayers in, but know you have been prayed for my dear sister Mary Jo. You are much loved by us all!

Thomas the Seeker posted this on another prayer for someone, it is so perfect for you.

O Lord Jesus Christ our God, Lover of Mankind, Physician of our souls and bodies, who didst bear the pain of our infirmities, and by whose wounds we are healed,

Who gave sight to the man born blind,

Who straightened the woman who was bent over for 18 years,

Who gave speech and sight to the mute demoniac,

Who not only forgave the paralytic his sins, but healed him to walk,

Who restored the withered hand of a troubled man,

Who stopped the flow of blood of her who bled for 12 years

Who raised Jairus' daughter to life

And brought the 4-day-dead Lazarus to life

And who heals every infirmity under the sun,

Do now, O Lord, give your grace to all those here gathered who have labored and studied hour upon hour, to go into all the world, and also to heal by the talent You have given to each of them.

Strengthen them, by your strength, to fear no evil or disease,

Enlighten them to do no evil by the works of their hands,

And preserve them and those they serve in peace,

For You are our God, and we know no other,

And to you we send up glory together with your Father who is from everlasting, and your most Holy, Good, and Life-creating Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
