Pagan Prayer Request

Regular readers of this blog will know that my father has been expecting to undergo heart by-pass surgery. He will be having his operation on Monday 24 November at 1200 GMT. Please can I ask that the friends I have made via this blog think of him, pray to your Gods, light a candle, stand in your power, whatever it is your spiritual path leads you to do, and remember him? As you can imagine, it's a bit of a scary time for him, my mother (mum and dad are pictured here), my family and loved ones. My regular posting here has been somewhat interrupted by this, but I know I will be back, just as I am sure that he will return to health and strength. Please, stand with me in this, in whatever way you are led.

With my love and blessings.

You're all really lovely and so kind - thank you.

Dad had a problem with bleeding post surgery, we were told that this could be normal, or a surgical bleed that might require further investigation. I've been feeling really bad because my mother is in Bristol, staying with family near the hospital (although she has not been able to see him) and I'm at home almost 50 miles away - although I spent the best part of the day with her.

There has been a flurry of phone calls this evening, and dad was indeed taken back into theatre as the bleeding became quite heavy. They found what were described as a couple of 'pinholes' and these were dealt with and we are told that he is now doing fine. I guess I have to place confidence in those words.

I was going back to work tomorrow, as my sister will be with my mother, with me going back to Bristol later in the week, but now I feel bad about doing that. I guess I need to see how I feel and how the ground lies in the morning.

All of this is so tiring, it really is. I wish I was feeling spiritually powerful, but I can't say I do right now. Someone said 'isn't it awful, this feeling of powerlessness' and that's not how I want to be. I feel almost as though I have failed in some way. It's hard to explain how I feel right now, really.

I'm so grateful and appreciative of all you have been doing - bless each one of you.

Love, Andy, xx

Andy, I've been keeping a candle lit constantly on my altar for your Dad, you and your family. May the Goddess take him into her care and pour her healing light into him.

May the Goddess shine upon your family and help you all through this process and may She hold your fathers heart in Her hands, filling it with Her wonderous healing love and energy that he may recover quickly and safely. You have Her love and blessings all around you and your family dear one. Be blessed!
