Hi brothers and sisters. I have an odd request for prayer. Before I ask it of you I think I should give you a bit of background first.At different times since following after Christ I have recieved what [i]may[/i], I do not know, be called [b]words of knowledge[/b]. How this has happened is that a word, which I do not know the meaning too at the time, will come to mind, and sometimes it will continue to do so over a period of time, not continously, but [i]out of the blue[/i] so to speak. This has happened in connection with: seeking God for direction in prayer(what to pray for), in conjunction with a fast, and most dramatically it happened when I sought the Lord as to what He wanted me to do in ministry.Well, for at least a month, perhaps two, this has happened again only it has been the name of a person, not a word. I do not know who this person is and as far as I know I've never heard this name before. But this afternoon I went on a long long walk to pray and seek after God and the name came to me again. I decided that when I got home I'd check it out.I put the name in google and one of the links on the first page led me to a web forum, similar(not in content) to ours. I found a thread which talked about a man whose name was the same as I heard. Appearantly [b]he is in a hospital here in Philadelphia and is in a drug induced comma, which he has been in since around Thanksgiving[/b]. The last post about him was from about a week ago so the information is fairly current.I would ask of God's people that you would pray that God would put His hand upon this in a mighty way. I will seek the Lord and give you all an update if there's something to mention. If nothing else beloved there is man who's in a hospital in need of prayer. Judging by the content of the forums I found this in I would not suspect he'd know the Lord.But in their posts about him, they were asking for prayer.Your's and His,Chris

So do you actually know this man or is it just the name of a man the Lord told you of?It's not too rare that God does that sort of thing. There's a family at my church that felt led to pray for a girl named Ashley, though they didn't know anybody by that name. They also had it spoken into their lives that they would have a girl, though their only children are all boys (four of them, to be exact). A while later, a girl named Ashley showed up in our church's youth group. Ashley came from a very broken home, and eventually ended up living with the family that had been led to pray for her all that time before.I'll be praying for this man. A fellow student at my school just recently went into a coma after overdosing on drugs. Seems to be happening more and more frequently these days...This man, though I don't know his name, his situation, or even where in the world he is, is in my prayers.
Wonserwonton, no I do not know this man at all, only he has the name that kept coming to mind.Thank you so much brother for your prayers.
Praying here...me thinks you should go see this man.In Christ,Ron
me thinks you should go see this man
Jesus, in Your Name, wake him, amen.
Hi everyone and firstly thank you all for your prayers. Thanks be to God for fellow-helpers in all things.I went to visit this man in the hospital this tuesday night past; we will call him [i]James[/i].He was awake and sitting up in his bed when I arrived. His wife was also there. He was not able to move much, or talk(from what I could tell), though his wife seemed to indicate by her comments that the movements he was making were very good...even perhaps, [i]miraculous[/i]. The extent of my visit was for the most part to introduce myself and expalin why I was there. They graciously allowed me to stay and talk with them for a while. It was hard to judge how [i]James[/i] felt about my visit there though he seemed open to me being there and not put off by it.It appeared as though his wife is a believer in the Lord Jesus and she invited me to come back again to talk with him, perhaps earlier in the day when he would have more energy.I give thanks to God for His abundant mercy in all of this in Jesus name.Will write again if there is something else to mention.Chris
Amen to what both Ron and Linn wrote :-)
