I Don't Normally Do This...

but if you pray, oh please pray.


On Sunday, Sept. 26th, Leslie Evans at the age of 28 gave birth to twins.  At only 21 weeks gestation, they were too immature to survive.  Following the delivery, Leslie's heart stopped.  She was gone for 17 minutes before they were able to resuscitate her.  Her kidneys failed and she slipped into a coma.  Originally diagnosed with Amniotic Fluid Embolism, the doctors now believe that a blood clot broke loose and travelled through her heart to her lungs.



Her husband, Mark, lost his first wife to cancer.  Together they had 3 children.  Now those children face losing another mother.

The doctors, discouraged by lack of brain activity, are pressuring the family for a decision within 48 hours.

If you believe in an Almighty God who is more than able, then I implore you to bring Leslie, her husband and children, her family, her doctors and anyone else involved in her care before His throne.  All those praying for Leslie know and believe that God can restore her to full health, He is the Great Healer.  We know He hears the cry of his people and we know He can perform a miracle.  And a miracle is exactly what Leslie needs.

  3. Dear Jesus, we call on you in this time to do what we can't, to heal, restore, and bring life back to it's fullest in Leslie's body. Lord I pray that you would pull her through this so that she can be a living example of your power and your might. Lord we don't understand why these things happen but, we pray that your will be done. I pray for comfort and strength for Leslie's family and that you would guide the doctor's hands that are caring for Leslie. We all stand together and call on you. Thank you Jesus.

  4. In addition, Leslie's brother just lost his wife (of only a few months) very suddenly this summer to brain cancer...more grief in one family than should be possible. My heart has been breaking for them.

  5. So sad. I married a man with three children also. I know how hard that can be. Praying for this family that they don't lose their mother. They need her. and she needs them.
