Harlan Schmieg is in the Waconia hospital (Dec. 22) awaiting surgery to remove cancer in his stomach/intestine that is creating an obstruction. 

Loving Father, our Earthly and Eternal Healer, we ask You by Your grace to grant the surgeon and medical staff the wisdom and skill to remove this obstruction and relieve Harlan of the pain. We plead for Your Holy Spirit to overwhelm Harlan with the reality of Your presence and to give him Your peace that passes all understanding. Thank You for always hearing Your children and answering our prayers perfectly. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen!
