Urgent Prayer Request for My Young Cousin, Severe Head Injury - Update at #2982
My family | Thursday January 25, 2007 | GretchenM

Posted on 01/25/2007 9:37:13 AM PST by GretchenM

Edited on 02/14/2007 3:30:51 PM PST by Admin Moderator. [history]

My aunt and uncle sent this out to our family at 6:30 AM today. Carrie is my young cousin, a very gifted artist, and the second eldest among her siblings. She and her family are in Michigan.

Prayer reqeust from my aunt and uncle (Carrie is their granddaughter).

This morning on her way to work Carrie's car slid on the highway and into a tree. She has very bad injuries, especially to her head. Her brain is swelling and she is now in surgery. They plan to open her skull to allow for the swelling, and she is not responding.

They don't give her parents a lot of hope. We are telling everyone so you can join us in praying for our dear Caroline. They called her parents about 7:45 this morning and they're at the hospital now.

Carrie and all her family know the Lord Jesus as Savior, and are drawing on His comfort, but I know they would desire every prayer possible to be joined with them for the recovery of their dear girl.

I am strengthened to hear that she has accepted her invitation to the Lord's wedding. (Matthew 22)

I pray that her family gains strength in the knowledge that He will embrace her no matter when she arrives.

Done, friend.

Don't forget:

Surely he took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows,
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.

5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and BY HIS WOUNDS WE ARE HEALED.

Hi:

A good friend suffered a moderately severe closed head injury some years back. By the grace of God and a lot of therapy he made a full recovery.

Prayers for you.

Our prayers here in Idaho on Carrie's behalf. May God in Heaven guide the surgeons hands, may His Spirit rest on Carrie, and on her family and other loved ones, comforting them, healing them.

Dear Father in Heaven, please bless and comfort, and in thy will, heal Carrie. Bless and comfort her family, hold them all in the Palm of Thy Hand...in Jesus Name, Amen.
