Thank God for modern medical technology

My friend Carl's heart stopped last night, while he was home alone. Thank God he had a defibrillator hard wired into his heart. It kicked in, scared the crap out of him, and managed to bounce his heart back to work long enough for him to call 911.

So, I am asking you for prayers. This has been a long road. He has been on the list for a transplant for a couple of months and today I am grateful that he is still on that list.

Beloved,

I ask you to be with my friend Carl in the hours, days and weeks ahead. Give him courage. Comfort him. Heal him.

I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
