    I dont usually ask for prayers or thoughts, but a friend of mine is in a life or death situation. I have talked to Stacey some about it.
    My friend Blake works on radio towers. About two months ago he was knocked off a tower by a crane. he had a hardhat on and a harness but when he fell he got slammed into the side of the tower breaking his back. he was paralized from the waist down. The last couple of weeks he has been losing feeling in his arms as well. They found out he was leaking spinal fluid. He went in for surgery this morning, with a 25 % chance of coming out of it alive. Well he came out of it alive, but he is in a coma, they dont think he is going to make it through the night.
    Last time i talked to him he sounded depressed and he said he wished it was all over, i know its the depression talking. he is a wonderful person the deserves so much more in life. he is only 29 years old and has a lot of years to go.
    Please just keep him in your thoughts.
    thanks

    OH Beth, I sure will be praying for him.

    Lord, I pray today to you that you will take care of Blake in his recovery. Lord I pray that you will be with the Doctors and give them the knowledge that they need to help Blake in this time. Lord if Blake is never to walk again that is your plans and we can not ask that you change it, but I pray that you will help Blake and the family and friends to accept what you have planned for him and just embrace it. we do not know why this happened and why you chose him, but we must accept it so I pray to you that you will help everyone involved to accept it and to feel your arms wrapped around everyone and let them know you are there for them.

    OH Beth. I am so sorry. I sure wish I could give you a hug in person. It is so hard to lose someone in a accident like that.

    Lord I pray that you will be with Beth in this time, lord please wrap your arms around her and let her know you are there for her. There was a reason for this no matter how hard it is to understand. Lord please give her the support that she needs.
    Amen.
