I have just become aware of a young man in our community who needs prayer immediately. He is a "local boy" and those of you who live in small towns know what I mean. His parents and grandparents have been in our community for as long as I can remember, he graduated from the local high school about 10 years ago, and everybody in town knows this young man. Yesterday afternoon he collapsed at his home, and was rushed to University Hospital in Columbia with a brain aneurysm. The doctors have operated, but evidently there was a lot of blood loss and a lot of damage to his brain.
I am asking each one of you to pray as you would want others to pray if this were your son. I know that our God is a Healer. His Word says that the prayer of faith SHALL heal the sick. I want you to stop what you are doing, right now, and pray for Ryan, for his wife, and for his parents. I cannot imagine what this family must be going through right now. They need comfort. They need the Comforter, the Holy Spirit. And Ryan needs a touch from the Great Physician. I ask you to pray for Ryan right now, and as the Lord brings him to your mind over the next few days.
Thank you for your prayers.
