Chuck Colson in critical condition after brain hemorrhage (Update @ #87)

WASHINGTON, DC, April 4, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Evangelical leader and frequent life and family spokesman Chuck Colson is in critical condition in hospital after undergoing surgery this weekend. He was hospitalized Friday after enduring a brain hemorrhage while speaking in Virginia at the Wilberforce Conference.

Colson underwent surgery on Saturday morning to remove a pool of clotted blood on the surface of his brain. Colson became ill while speaking at the Wilberforce Weekend conference on Friday night.

“We believe that we serve a mighty God - the ‘Great Physician’ - and are hoping and praying for Chuck’s full recovery. When I visited him yesterday, I was encouraged to see that as we prayed, Chuck was responsive,” said Prison Fellowship Ministries CEO Jim Liske.

Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America, said in an email comment to LifeSiteNews: “We are praying that God grants him a full recovery. Chuck is the one of the most influential Christian leaders of our time; he has influenced everyone from prisoners to business leaders, thought leaders, and politicians. CWA staff is lifting him up in prayer.”

Brad Mattes of the Life Issues Institute told LifeSiteNews that Colson “has been a shining example of where a Christian needs to be on the critical life issues and other moral and faith issues.” He added, “Our prayers are certainly with Chuck and his family.”

“Colson is listed in critical condition at this point but has shown some early signs of potential for recovery,” said Michelle Farmer, Colson’s spokesperson.

Prayers for Colson and his family. It would be terrible for him to leave his ministry in the hands of the likes of Liske.

Thank you, Father, for Chuck Colson’s inspiring conversion, witness and testimony. His health is in Your hands as never before. Spare him to us, we pray, if it is Your will to do so. We humbly ask in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Amen.

I daresay it was the Power of God manifested through the Blood of Jesus Christ that turned Chuck Colson around.

I’m willing to bet that most people my age don’t even know who he is or what he did back in the 60’s.
