Pray for Chris
Hi gang! I have a friend named Shannon Steele. Her brother is in need of some serious prayer. It's a bit complicated, but basically it all started with a problem with his wisdom tooth. The pain got worse and eventually, led to some sort of infection. Now, Chris is in ICU in California, under heavy sedation, breathing with the help of a ventilator. He's got a feeding tube to keep him nourished, two open incisions on the side of his neck to allow fluid to drain. Needless to say, he's in serious need of prayer. So is his family. As you can imagine, it's very hard to see your loved one suffer the way Chris is. Would you please pray for Chris Ballard to fully recover from this problem? Please pray for the infections to go away. For the swelling to go down. Please pray that doctors would be able to control the fluid buildup around his heart. Pray that the antibiotics would work. And pray for Chris' family as they struggle through this with him. If you want to keep updated, you can find the latest information here on Shannon's blog. Thank you!
