It is with great urgency I update this evening.
The doctors have weaned Isaac off of the two heavy medications that are keeping him in a coma, because the EEG readings have been steady. It will take hours to see if the ICP ( intracranial pressure) levels remain low.
The goal is to determine if the brain is maintaining due to medication only, or if Isaac is brain dead.
If he is not brain dead, the physicians have told Sarah Jane that Isaac will be severely impaired.
She has asked me to share this with you and to ask for us to pray for brain function to be evident.
Our goal is to do just that. Honor her heart, encourage her as best we can, and pray for divine healing for Isaac's brain function.
This came from a caring pages site created for Isaac. In Acts, the author tells us about the miracles that Peter and John and the other apostles performed through the power of being filled with the Holy Spirit. Right now, I ask all of you to be bold in your prayers and ask God to fully restore Isaac's health. Abraham prayed on behalf of a people God had decided to wipe out, and because of his faith and boldness in prayer, God changed his mind and spared them. If we are bold enough in our prayers, God can change his mind as well. Please, I beg the community, be bold in your prayers for this young man.
Our country is in decline right now. A miracle of this nature can't be denied. This is a chance to ask God to prove to the unbelievers (yes, there will still be some) that He and his church are alive.
Paeter, I think you said that the coffeehouse question was something about what would we like to emulate of the early apostles (or something to that effect). This is what I'd like to emulate; to have not the slightest doubt in my faith, to be an effective tool and so filled with the Holy Spirit that I can say to a sick and injured person, "Get up, you are healed." not for my glory (like Simon the Sourcer wanted), but for God's glory.
