Prayer request

My sister-in-law's nephew was in a serious automobile accident on Tuesday. They do not know whether Adam will live or die because of serious swelling from head injuries. The possibility of permanent disability is almost certain. They can't learn the full extent of his injuries because they don't want to move him. The trooper who was on duty was in his wedding and delivered the news personally to Adam's mother. The circumstances of the accident are not clear yet. He is married but I don't believe they have children yet. He does not have health insurance and he has no durable power of attorney or any other legal document for his family. Not a fun way to start the new year. Prayers for Adam and his family appreciated even tho none of them are "church people". God doesn't discriminate.

Saying a prayer for Adam and his family.

If it's any comfort, I had an acquaintance whom doctors thought would die from brain swelling (he fell three stories because of a faulty porch rail). Prayer saved his life. It is possible.

Prayers for Adam and his family, absolutely.

Will do!

Sorry to hear this, though. Sigh.

Thank you, All, for the prayers. My brother is impressed tho he doubts prayer works. I've tried to tell him the value of prayer goes far beyond miracle healing.

No news yet.

Tried to leave a comment, but don't know if it went through.

Regardless, prayers ascending for Adam and all who care for him.
