Prayers from the praying

Monday, June 10, 2013

I'm going to email the atheists I know who are "good people" and ask them what they do for friends who have misfortune enter their lives when there isn't much you can physically do to assist? I pray, when that is what I have to offer.

Right now I'm asking my Spark friends who do pray to please pray for a young woman who is right now on full life support in a hospital in Omaha, Nebraska. She is the mother of my nephew's one year old daughter. Young, apparently healthy woman, started having "flu" symptoms last Friday. To the ER, admitted, then transported to Omaha today where they are doing tests.

Current medical update says it is a virus attacking her heart. So if you are one for whom prayer is a practice... please pray for Kelsey.

Thank you. LIFE is good. And precious. And fragile. Treasure and protect it! Spark on.

    I saw this blog after I saw that she got a pacemaker ... God does, indeed, hear our prayers and He is gracious to answer! I'll continue to pray for her recovery! Hugs.

    As a "reverent agnostic" (not an atheist) I send reverent wishes for well being. And: I do.

So glad to read your update that the situation is improving . . .

    I'm not an atheist, but those I know send good wishes, good vibrations, or good thoughts. Because I'm not an atheist, I consider all those to be the equivalent of prayer -- God hears whether they believe or not.

As for me, I will send all of the above AND prayers.
