Urgent Prayer Request...

Please pray for my brother-in-law in FL. His name is Doug, and he is my sister Beth's husband. He had a massive heart attack this afternoon.

The Dr. was unable to do stints. He has several blockages, and considerable heart damage. One blockage is in his main artery.

They are not walking closely with the Lord. They both need deliverance too. I think they believe in God, and that is where it stops. My sister called me and asked me to pray with her...

Please pray that God will show His power here, and that no matter what the outcome, it will draw my family closer to Jesus.

The latest update is that they plan to do open heart surgery after at least 24 hrs. Doug is stable, but apparently he also has a diseased valve...he must be losing blood because his pressure is extremely low, and they are pumping him full of fresh blood. So I imagine they will do the surgery either tomorrow afternoon or early Sun am.

Thank you all for your prayers for my Florida Fam.

Oh that's awful! Praying right now.

Also, the black picture frame in our living room was a wedding gift, but I think it was from Hallmark.
