Your prayers are needed for Lana’s son

Rate this post

Loyal FOTM reader and commenter Lana’s son, like our dear Auntie Lulu, has a terrible case of kidney stones.

From Wikipedia:

Kidney stone disease, aka urolithiasis, is when a solid piece of material (kidney stone) occurs in the urinary tract. Kidney stones typically form in the kidney and leave the body in the urine stream. A small stone may pass without causing symptoms. If a stone grows to more than 5 millimeters (0.2 in) it can cause blockage of the ureter resulting in severe pain in the lower back or abdomen. A stone may also result in blood in the urine, vomiting, or painful urination. ()

Lana asks for your prayers:

I just got a call from my son who has had the same problems that Auntie Lulu has gone through- major size kidney stones blocking the ureters in both kidneys. He had a procedure this last Monday that sonically blasted the stone in his left kidney into smaller pieces so they could pass. Normally within 2 days all the smaller stones should pass. My son is in the hospital now because the pain was too unbearable and his blood pressure skyrocketing. It  turns out that the stones are stuck and have all lined up in his ureter and they are scheduled to take them out late this afternoon, but that means more anesthesia and my son is frightened because he has sleep apnea and he seems to have breathing problems when his is sedated.  I am asking for a miracle that those stones will start moving NOW and be passed naturally so he does not need the surgery, and if they have not moved by the appointed time that he his procedure will be safe and successful.

In the name of Jesus Christ let the kidney stones be loosed and leave his body now. I ask that all those who feel inclined agree with me in prayer that those stones leave his body now.

Love and thanks,


Thank you for your prayers and kindness,

  1. Prayers your way Lana that your son will naturally pass them.

  2. I’ll keep him in my prayers, Lana. I have had a minor dose of that and it HURTS! Tell him to hang in there. Usually when its over, its over. I wish him well.

  3. Amen.

  4. I’m so sorry for your son, Lana. My husband, who suffers from several chronic illnesses already, just had a bout of stones. His passed, thank heavens, but it took forever (it seemed).

    Prayers for you and your family.

  5. Thank you all so much. There is prayer center that I often use and would you believe that there is no one there on the weekend! Like people don’t need prayer on the weekends? But this is a spiritual community that is there every day! Thank you again. God Bless.

    • There is an Orthodox prayer he can say. The strarets pray it unceasingly:

      “Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of God, Have mercy on me, a sinner”.

  6. I pray that your son passes those stones IMMEDIATELY!!

    I’ve passed stones myself, but I know that your son has it worse than I ever did. May God heal him ASAP!

    • And once he recovers – have him start drinking something sour/acidic to dissolve the stones, which are really salts, and to reduce/eliminate foods high in oxalates.

      I drink 4 teaspoons of natural, unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a pint of water, and sweetened with liquid stevia. This will dissolve/minimize the size of the stones that unfortunately, will always be present in his kidneys. My urologist told me that I have 4-5 stones in me at any given time. And there’s also foods that I won’t give up, no matter what, so I compensate by drinking the vinegar tonic.

      I know someone else suggested a different remedy – I hope it’s posted again.

      • I do that too. It works.

        • I discussed this with my son the other day as we just heard about the whole apple cider vinegar thing. OK so how much vinegar a day and how much water do you dilute it with? I have heard you have to be careful with the cider vinegar not to take it straight because it will erode the esophagus is taken long term. And I heard the lemon juice will erode the enamel on ones teeth. What do you know about that?

          • I just put 4 teaspoons in a 16 oz. water bottle and drink it that way. It works for me.

            • Just once a day?

              • Yes, that’s what I do. I don’t know if it’s why, but I haven’t had them since I started doing it.

              • I also take 4 tsp (20mL) in a 16 oz bottle – which should be considered “maximum strength” , and add stevia to taste. Once a day.

                I tried it once straight just for the heck of it, once is more than enough. And it does burn on its way down. Vinegar is 5-20 % acetic acid, after all.

                I’ve heard the same about lemon juice, though I ‘d say that any drink that’s acidic in nature is bad for enamel – including apple cider vinegar. Just drink a couple ounces of plain water afterwards to rinse the mouth.

  7. Prayers work to effect healing. We have a young man, Adam, (no family name ever used) who lives on the Lower Mainland, I think around Surrey, BC. View takes prayer request and deals with them in the order they are received.

    His track record is simply amazing, and will make a believer out of any unbeliever, as they are all medically validated afterward. There is nothing he can do except pray, because he doesn’t meet the people, he doesn’t know them or even their location.

    Yet his cure rate is, I believe, extremely close to 100%, and all are vetted by MDs afterward.

    The ONLY acceptable exploration must be that prayer works.

  8. Lana, your son will be in my heart and prayers.
    +Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.
    +O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

  9. I will pray for Lana’s son for a speedy recovery. Kidney stones are horrendous. I had them once, my poor husband has a bad bout ever 5-7 years. This last one was a stone that was nineteen MM and totally blocking any urine to pass. After his surgery his doctor came out and said no more peanut butter and drink or use lots of lemons daily.

  11. Prayers sent. I haven’t had kidney stones (yet) but I’ve heard the pain can be exquisite. At the age of 62, I have my gall bladder and spleen to worry about. I hope he does well—and quickly.

  12. I do not like to pass out medical advice to anyone. But, I would suggest to everyone but especially those dealing with “stones” to look into Andreas Moritz’s videos and read his book. If it makes sense as it did to me, than follow it.

  13. Prayer sent for complete healing for your son, Lana.

  14. They are finally taking him in now at 4:20 for the procedure They have found 6 stones lined up in the ureter, but there is another one that did not get blasted into a small enough piece and is too large to go through the ureter so that will now be hit with a laser and stint will have to be placed. So there is no way these stones could have passed bar a miracle. ( I am always open to one) Between all your prayers and his good doctors I am sure all will be well soon. Thank you again!

  15. I suffer from chronic stones as well as hydronephrosis, and hydroureter. Also end stage interstitial cystitis of the bladder. Stones end up in urostomy bag, many times they are bloody. Various sizes. They do hurt tremendously when making their way out. God bless and good wishes to him.

    • “I suffer from . . . end stage interstitial cystitis of the bladder.”

      I’m so sorry, Carl. May you find solace in Christ’s sufferings on the cross.
      “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.” -Philippians 4:13

  16. Well, what should have been a half hour procedure took two hours. I was starting to get a bit worried when we did not hear anything after about a hour and a half. Instead of the 6 stones that showed on the CT scan the doctor said there were 25 stones stones in the ureter, and not one but two that were 6 mm. Don’t know how a CT scan could miss that many stones! The Dr. said she has never seen such a bad case of swelling so it was difficult getting them out.
    I mentioned the apple cider vinegar but the Dr. says it’s an old wives tale. Don”t care what they doc says, I think my son will find it is worth a try!!!!!
    Thank everyone of you for your thoughts and prayers! Love.

    • Glad to hear he’s out. Give him my best. “Old wives tale”? Well, I suppose if Merke condensed it into a pill and charged $60/btl for it, it would be a miracle cure.

      Like I said, I don’t know. I just did it after a bout of that and a person with the same thing giving me the advice. Seems to work.

  17. Lana: Our God is a God of mercy and comfort. I pray for your son’s speedy recovery and especially for his relief from the pain of his terrible condition. But I also pray for you that you feel God’s presence in this difficult time. Take comfort in the prayers of your friends in our Fellowship and be comforted by God’s word: “The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus Christ.”

  18. Praying now.

  19. Just saw, this, Lana, and saying prayers for your son for relief from pain and for a speedy recovery. So sorry for the anxiety and distress this has caused you.
    All blessings ~C
