URGENT PRAYER REQUEST FOR MARYGRACE




Please pray for my awesome friend, MaryGrace! She had a stroke, last week. She has regained her speech and balance. Her vision remains impaired. She returned home and will begin physical therapy this week. Please pray for complete healing, comfort, peace, strength, and divine guidance as the doctors develop a continued plan of care.

MaryGrace is a special lady. God brought her into my life during one of the most turbulent and difficult times I have faced. She accepted me unconditionally, loved and encouraged me, and has become a treasured friend. She is a brilliant lady. I am amazed at her many talents. She is an English Professor, Journal Editor, writer, poet, and much, much more.

I praise GOD for having HIS hand on her, from the beginning. All circumstances were in place for this episode. Her husband was home, the EMS responded in a timely manner, she received treatment quickly, and is making strides in her recovery. I pray GOD will continue to prepare the way before MaryGrace!

Love always wants the best for others. I pray GOD's best for MaryGrace! Please join me storming the heavens on her behalf.

Storming the heavens,

Andrea

Mary Grace is in my prayers and we know our Lord does amazing and awesome miracles. May she and her family draw closer to Our heavenly Father during this time and forever after.

P. S. I had a TIA 20 some years ago, it wasn't until 10 years ago the scar tissue from that tiny little thing caused a siezure condition. God performed a miracle and I am here today, and praising his name daily in many ways.

Mary Grace, I also pray that your Drs. have the knowledge of the best Drs. in the world. Amen
