Serious Prayers Needed

Early last week the husband of a friend of mine went to urgent care.  He was sick with a bad cold, and was given antibiotics, steroids and cough medicine.  My friend came down with a cold over Christmas, and her husband was no better, so they both went to urgent care last Friday.

When the doctor examined her husband, his oxygen levels were found to be very low and he was transported to the hospital by ambulance.  Once at the hospital, they diagnosed him with pneumonia in both lungs and admitted him to the hospital.

Folks, it has gone downhill from there. 

He was transferred to ICU on Sunday in critical condition. 

On Tuesday they discussed transferring him to another hospital but his condition was too critical and they did not believe he would survive the transport.

Yesterday they found a small hole in one of his lungs and while trying to insert a chest tube his blood pressure dropped dangerously low.  They had to vent him, and sedate him.

He is now on a ventilator and they have inserted two chest tubes.  This afternoon he developed a fever of 105 degrees.

This man needs your prayers.  He needs prayers for healing.  I do not know if he is a Christian

Please, right now, take a few minutes and pray for this man.  He is 56 years old, and is the father of two daughters and two sons.  Pray for his family as well.  They need comfort and peace that only Jesus can give.

  5. Lord we come before You lifting up this family! Lord I speak LIFE into this situation, with every breath he takes may Your breath of LIFE pour into every cell of his body bringing restoration in body, soul and spirit. I command that every infirmity attacking this family to bow at Your feet for this man and his family shall proclaim Your goodness in the land of the living. To the medical teams assisting in the care grant them wisdom beyond human understanding as You guide and direct their thoughts and treatments. May this sweet family be blanketed in LOVE, PEACE, HOPE, JOY may Your praises be upon their lips as they give You thanks for the healing touch upon their loved one. Bless them Lord with Your abundant lavish, ever increasing blessings....May waves upon waves of miraculous healings be the overflow within the medical facility blessing each and every one this family comes in contact with. Thank you Lord for Your healing touch! Thank you Jesus! amen
