I grew up thinking Christians should not pray for themselves when they have needs. I don't know why I thought this. I was told this is wrong so I've been praying for myself when I need something in the spiritual or physical nature. I don't mean like a new pair of shoes or a new car. After this last surgery I developed severe abdominal pain. I don't know why but for the past week it was unbearable. I prayed 24 hours a day. Yesterday, I laid in bed almost the entire day. I laid in one spot and tried not to move. Any time I did move the pain was so bad it felt like my tummy area was being ripped to shreds. Last night when I went to bed I was still hurting. This morning I woke up and honest to goodness I think it was a miracle because I have not felt one shred of pain today! Thank you, God, this is wonderful!
