View Full Version : Request for Prayers

My brother’s wife, Pam, had some problems with her neck – herniated disks – and went in for surgery about 2 weeks ago to improve the problem. She has not regained consciousness since then. For whatever reason, according to Barry, she retained fluids to such a point that they had to put her on a respirator to help her breathe. She then developed an infection which they were not able to identify until yesterday… so that further weakened her. Barry had a doctor and chaplain come in and talk to him last night as her future looks doubtful as her body is starting to shut down. Barry, understandably, is not willing to let her go as long as there is a chance, but come Monday, he will be forced to make that decision.

My brother and his wife are not religious, and as far as organized religion, neither am I, but I do believe in the power of prayer and I do believe that miracles happen. I am asking for prayers for my brother Barry and his wife Pam; for strength and for the grace of God to be with them.

Thank you…

Sorry to hear this Steve. I'm not a praying person for various reasons of my own but sometimes I have to forget my reasons & pray for others...I'll be thinking about you & your brothers wife & hope she will get better...

Thank you everyone!

I talked with my brother just a few minutes ago and he is extremely grateful for all the prayers and support. Pam's condition continues to deteriorate. Barry has arranged for Last Rites to be given tomorrow morning.

Thanks again everyone. I appreciate it more than words can express.

Prayers sent. And God does indeed grant miracles. But mostly He grants peace to deal with life's moments. This is one of those times. Was hoping and praying for a better outcome. Now I pray for peace for the family members left behind. May the shamrocks fall softly......Jim.
