Coma Is A Not Scary Word
Coma. It's a scary word. It brings to mind all the worst possibilities. But take a moment to call to mind the types of people that Christ healed. He raised paralytics. People that hadn't taken a single step in decades. He freed demoniacs. People that were slaves to demons and absolutely could not get free. He restored lepers. Men and women whose flesh was rotting and falling off their bodies. He breathed life into people that had been dead for four days! Lazarus was dead for a full four days before Jesus spoke life back into his body.
Jesus is not intimidated by comas. The One who knit Ian's brain together is not scared by the word 'coma'. With but a touch He can cause Ian's brain to begin working at full capacity. With but a simple touch He can miraculously mend the destruction that took place in Ian's knee. Hebrews 11:6 tells us, "And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him." God promises to reward us when we seek Him. Let that stir you to pray for Ian! There is a great reward for those who seek God. Let's seek God on Ian's behalf.
