Restoring Health: body, mind and spirit

Praying for my dear wife Janice


Please pray for complete healing for my dear wife Janice P Hird who had surgery over three weeks ago. She is being very careful, not bending over to pick things up. She appreciates my helping her put on her socks and shoes.

“Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord.”
‭‭James‬ ‭5:14‬ ‭NIV‬‬ https://www.bible.com/bible/111/jas.5.14.niv

Blessings, Ed Hird+

  1. Dear Ed,

    We remembered you and Janice in special prayer today, for healing, for strength, for patience as the Lord refreshes Janice’s body and spirit at the same time, and for your strength and encouragement to be sufficient for her as she relies on you much these days of “socks and stockings.”.

    Do keep us informed of her progress, please.

    In Christ’s love and ours,

    Allan & Meryle MacLeod, Mission, BC
