In light of my previous post regarding trials, I thought that it would be an opportune time to ask for you all to pray for Patrick and the Miller family. Over a month ago Patrick ruptured his Achilles tendon. When given the option between surgery or casting, Patrick chose to go through six weeks of casting. On this past Tuesday, he went to get the final cast off, but he found out that two blood clots had formed in his leg...so he had to be hospitalized. Unfortunately, over the next day a blog clot formed in his lungs. Somehow though (it can only be attributed to the grace of God) Patrick isn't having to use oxygen.
As I type this, Patrick is still in the hospital. Although he seemed in good spirit tonight, I know that this is a huge trial for the Millers. Here are a number of ways that you can pray regarding this situation:
*Since they do not have insurance, this will be a huge financial burden. Pray that they will be supplied with the resources they need.
*Pray for his wife Julie as she cares for Patrick and their five children.
*Pray for me and the other leaders at Redeemer as we seek to minister and fill in for Patrick. We really aren't sure how long it will be before he'll be able to get back to full swing.
*Pray for healing.
*Pray that God will be glorified in all things.
