Praying This Is The Final Goodbye To ICU

Adam was moved out of ICU today, which is good... no more seizures, praise the Lord! However, he's on this anti-seizure medication that is causing serious lethargy. He has been non-responsive all day (not responding to my voice, touch, or commands) not only from the medication but also as a result from the seizure itself. If tomorrow he is still lethargic the will most likely order an EEG (Electroencephalography) to see if Adam is having any more seizing that we are not visibly seeing. Please pray that Adam to work through these medication changes, please also pray that there is no more seizing activity and that he will begin to propel forward in his recovery.

I couldn't help but think of Matthew 11 when John is in prison and Jesus continues on in His ministry, questioning his present circumstances and if God was really the Messiah... Jesus responds in Matthew 11:5 "The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. " Who can forget the story of the two blind men Jesus healed simply by His touch (Mt 9:27-30). Or, who can help but think of the paralytic, lying on a mat, brought to Jesus by some friends; Jesus not only forgave his sins but also commanded him "Get up, take your mat and go home" (Mt 9:1-7). I think of the man with leprosy whom Jesus touched and said, "Be clean!" and immediately he was cured of his leprosy (Mt 8:1-4). I think of a deaf and mute man whom Jesus took aside, put His fingers into the man's ears and touched the man's tongue, and said "Be opened" and the man's ears were opened and his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly (Mk 7:31-35). Then there was the dead girl Jesus took by the hand and she got up (Mt 9:23-25). Finally, there was the preaching of the good news. Jesus sent out the twelve to preach and to heal (Mt 10) and when they left He Himself went on from there to teach and preach in the towns of Galilee (Mt 11:1).All of these activities were miracles, supernatural in scope. And, they all were acts of compassion. I am praising God tonight that He is the same God that preformed all these supernatural miracles and I am asking for a miracle in Adam's recovery. Please join me in praying for a FULL recovery, nothing less than an FULL recovery.

It's time for healing... please take the time to listen to this song. I believe God is doing a work in Adam and in the midst of the ciaos there is so much peace.

Please let me encourage you to please continue to pray without ceasing for Adam's recovery.
