A friend of mine who is a Physician Assistant and works in Trauma related this experience to me the other day:
I don't believe there are coincidences when it comes to the power of prayer. Prayer is the strongest tool we have, and we should never underestimate its strength. The case however has become complicated as the doctors who are working with this man have decided that his condition is too severe to do anything about. This friend told me when she returned to work the following night, she found he was still "responsive". If you asked him how he was doing, he would give the "thumbs up" and he would cross his ankles. Clearly there is a part of his brain that is STILL functioning. However, the doctors have titled that mere "reflex" and have decided to let him progress to brain death. Apparently its not worth their time to try and save this man because the results would not end up being "acceptable."
This man may have done something horrible to himself in trying to take his own life, yes. However, clearly through the power of prayer, he has been given a second chance. Maybe it's just enough to obtain forgiveness, or maybe it will end up being enough to show medical professionals that they are not in control; whatever it is....its another example that God is the giver of Life, and He is the taker of Life...and no one else on this Earth has that right. Please keep this man in your prayers....pray that through some miracle this man will be given at least the chance of survival.
