need your prayers

  1. A good friend of mine's nephew was in a car accident last week. He is in critical condition. He lost an ear, fractured both legs, had a pneumo, bruised liver and developed ARDS. They trached him today. He is not doing very well at all. My friend is not married and her nephew is like her own son. She is a nurse and took a family leave to be with her sister and family. They have never left the hospital since the accident.
    Anyway I'm not a very religious person and I know there are alot of you with strong faith. I thought you all could put him in your prayers. I've been praying alot even though I'm not sure I'm good at it. His name is Jimmy and he is only 18.

    Kaycee -

    I don't think that prayer is something that you have to be good at. My impression is that if it's heartfelt then it's good. So you are obviously good at it.

    I hope you can take comfort and gain strength from the stories in the Bible where the prayers of friends brought healing. And now people are quanitifying that prayer seems to make for better outcome, even when the person doesn't know who's praying for him/her.

    So of course you have our thoughts and prayers. And I hope that you and your friend and her family get some peace and comfort from that.

    No one has to be good at praying because the Lord ALWAYS listens. I'll pray even harder for Jimmy because my son's name is Jimmy and he gets his license on March about praying! Now I have two Jimmy's to pray very hard for...

    Your friend is people prayers Kaycee,

    However to get back to the subject of the thread I saw John Q the other night and I liked it alot. However the night was kind of ruined since (STUPID ME) decided to take a transplant nurse. She was driving me crazy. every inaccuarcy she went on and on about. I noticed a few and ignored them its the store I am interested in anyway.

    Nonetheless Does anyone else know someone that alway picks apart movies they deem unrealistic? OMG that would be 99.9% of the movies out there.

    I am so sorry kaycee I posted on the wrong thread.

    Your friend is still in my prayers, though!

    Dear Kaycee, I agree with all that's been said. Just follow your heart and you've done good by following it to ask for us to pray with you. Just remember that what we ask in prayer is not always what we get. We do always get God's love. Please, remember that. And remember that this young man is in His best hands. And no matter the outcome, He will be with him at his side like He is now. I will pray for you and you friend and this young man. Please, keep us updated.

    God bless us all!
