David needs your prayers NOW

Good news & bad news. Although David was transfered
from ICU to a regular room over the weekend, he has
gotten progressively worse. The good news is that he
is sick enough to finally get the transplant that he
desperately needs, the bad news is they must still
find him a liver.

He needs your prayers now, folks. There are so many
of you out there praying for him. I know there are
prayer networks all over the world, in every religious
denomination. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, Now is the time
to put those prayers into full action. The door is
open for David to get this transplant, now he just
needs a donor.

Please know that you are not praying for someone to
die in order for David to get a liver. Pray for the
person who's time has come and pray that they have
agreed to be an organ donor. David's angel is out
there and I know his angel will find him soon.

David continues to be in good spirits. He was
thrilled to receive a 12 page "Star Wars" book that
Alexander made for him. Alex was the author and
illustrator of the book and was so proud to give it to
his Dad. When I asked Tasha what she thought I
should bring Daddy today to make him feel better she
named three things: medicine, lollipops and a
Christmas tree. She was right, those things did make
him feel better.

Let's hope and pray and believe that we will get a
Christmas miracle. We love you all.

It is clear that David and Nancy need our prayers right now. We have created a "prayer network" for David and his family. There is power in prayer and there is power in numbers!
The idea is this, say this prayer, wherever you are in your daily lives, twice a day at 7:30 am and 7:30 pm. May God hear our chorus of prayers, and provide the healing David needs. We can make a difference!

A Prayer for David
O God, in our hearts, we name those who are facing illness and pain. We join our prayers with the prayers of all who love them. Give them renewed comfort and courage. Strengthen in them the healing powers You have placed within us all. Guide the hands and hearts of those who are entrusted with their care. May the knowledge of Your love and ours give added hope to them and to their dear ones. May they find even greater strength because our prayers are linked with theirs.

We praise You, O Lord, the Source of healing and health. May the source of strength Who blessed the ones before us, help us find the courage to make our lives a blessing and let us say: Amen.

We prayed last night at Evangel Church(Intercessory prayer) - for David's liver transplant. May God provide the right donor. Nothing is impossible to God and JESUS is a prayer aswering God. I courage David with these words from Jesus John 14:1 "Donot trouble your hearts - but trust in God and also trust in me".

Our prayers are with you.. Be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ.

God bless

David and Nancy,

I just received word from Maureen Downey of David's condition. I am actively praying for you both and for a successful transplant for David. I have sent word to several other friends across the country and have already received word that you have been added to prayer chains here in Illinois and Indiana as well.

My mother and brothers were all early kidney transplant recipients in the 1970's when transplants were very experimental. My brother Kurt has lived nearly 30 years since his first transplant and remains healthy and productive as an environmental engineering writer. I know that the miracle of a transplant can happen for David as well. I will ask Kurt to pray for you.

David, you were there for me during one of the most stressful points in my life. I will do everything I can to continue promoting healing prayers for you among my friends and my church. We will continue to follow your progress via your web site.

Nancy, my husband Bob and I will continue to pray for you and for your family. Please let us know if there is anything more we can do for you.
