Prayers that helped my friend and me

From unconsciousness to a full recovery

This Past Fall, my former brother-in-law, Gary, who is also a good friend, was stricken with acute pancreatitis. He was placed in the intensive-care unit of a local hospital and treated medically. Withing a few days, however, he lapsed into unconsciousness and remained in this condition for nearly a month. The picture was bleak.

I wondered what I could do. He was living in a distant state, and I knew he had no particular interest in Christian Science or spiritual healing. Still, I realized that there was something I could do. I vowed to keep my own thoughts about the situation focused on God. This, I knew, would be doing something powerful.
