Ohana Means Family

Ohana

Ohana

It’s been a rough few days. My mom had a fall last Friday and fractured the upper part of her left arm (above her elbow) but thank God it’s a closed fracture. Seeing a loved one in pain and not being able to do anything about it but to just comfort and pray for her is tough. Thankfully God has answered everyone’s prayers and my mom was just prescribed a painkiller that’s safe for a kidney patient to take. For everyone’s info my mom had a kidney transplant 8 years ago; which is why she couldn’t be prescribed regular painkillers as they interfere with her creatinine levels.

I’m thankful for my extended family in Christ so here’s a full list of emails & SMSes (in no particular order) that I have received in prayer & to encourage me & my family. I’m putting them down here exactly as I received them. There are loads more who are praying and my best buddy (and Zone Leader) J-son has been rallying my subzone to pray too. He’s been such a great encouragement as well and helped point out some alternatives when my mom couldn’t take painkillers at one point.

Hi Chris ,
We pray may the healing hand of the Lord touch your mum even as she is being treated right now. Our God is  a God who heals. We pray God will bring a speedy recovery of the fracture.
Amen
Richard Yeo.

Dear Lord, thank you for protecting Chris’ mom – hope her guardian angel is not too badly hurt from buffering her fall. Please continue to be gentle with Chris’ mom as she goes through this healing process; that she will be comfortable as she manages her daily activities with only her right hand for the period of healing. We pray that the fracture heals well and if possible, please quicken it but not if it compromises the healing. We just pray for your time, not ours. In Jesus most precious name, Amen

Auntie Stella.

Chris,

Let not your worries trouble you.

Praying for a quick healing to take place upon your mom and that she’ll be restored to the full.

If you’re heading to Bentong, do drive safely.

God bless,
Ronnie & Ivy.

Lord, we know you watches over us & knew our desire as we uphold Chris’s mum before you.

May your joy be Chris & his mum’s strength. Embrace them so they know, they are not alone. Lord Jesus, reveal your goodness & be merciful to this family. Remember them and turn your face upon this family in this situation that they will be able to turn their sadness into rejoices.

Amen.
Lily Wong.

Dear Chris,

With prayers that your mum will have a quick recovery and that she will receive the best treatment that is available. More importantly, we plead Your special covering upon her especially at his time and may Your healing touch be upon her.

God bless – Lee King.

Father,

I ask for Your healing Hand to be on Chris’ mom right now. Grant her reprive from the pain so she can sleep well tonight and be rested for tomorrow. May it be that uncle will agree to take her to KLGH so that her shoulder can be set properly and heal in the correct way.

We thank You for Your abundance grace and mercy over our lives, and that You always have our best interest at heart. Grant us faith to believe You for all You are and will be.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen!
Gerald Lee.

Hi Chris,

Continue to claim the Word of God for a speedy recovery for you mum.

‘The word of God is quick,and powerful,and sharper than any two-edged sword piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and morrow and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart’

Continue to claim the Word of God for a speedy recovery for your mum.

God Bless,Chris.

Dear Chris,

With prayers that the fracture will be re-set properly and that the doctors attending to your mum will operate with all skill and dilligence. And may you and family find strength from Him to cope with all things especially at this time.

God bless – Lee King.

  1. Hi, Chris.

    Glad everything went well and God truly answered the prayers of many people. Will continue to pray for your mum’s complete recovery.

    Didn’t know you’re a Mun Toong boy. I spent quite a few of my childhood years in Raub. Still miss Pahang very much.

    God bless.

    • Oh hey there Audrey. Um… yeah. I grew up in Bentong. Lived there since I was 7. I do miss it sometimes but God’s placed me in KL/PJ for a reason and I’m still discovering it. Life in the big, bad city ain’t that easy tho’. Appreciate your continued prayer and yep God’s certainly been answering our prayers in things with my mom. Am truly grateful.

      It’s difficult seeing things like that happen and the question of “why” keeps cropping up. I’ve begun to realise that sometimes we will never know why and perhaps it doesn’t matter at the end of the day if we are perfected more & more in Him through these circumstances.

      Thank you Audrey for dropping a line here. I don’t get that many comments with my posts. Ha ha! It’s usually one-way traffic.
