Prayer request

A friend's brother-in-law was severely injured in an accident a couple of weeks ago. You can read news articles here and here. He has burns over 60% of his body, mostly third degree burns from his ankles to his chest. While he survived the most critical 72-hour window, some infections have been found (on his arm, for example). He has been sedated since his arrival at Chapel Hill (North Carolina) Burn Center. He will likely remain there for six months.

This gentleman's name is Mike McCorquodale, his wife's name is Sondra, and his three little girls are Haley, Kayln, and Riley (ages 1-5).

Please pray for his recovery as well as strength and comfort for his family.

  1. Our Heavenly Father, I ask your blessing on this family as they struggle to meet this awful challenge. Please hold them close and let them feel Your Loving Presence and Care. Father, I ask Your blessing on every hand and heart that cares for Mike. Please guide and inspire each one as they help him through this valley of darkness to a speedy and complete recovery. And Father, please ease his pain and kill any infection. Please restore him and protect his family, and please let him feel the love and prayers that surround him.

    Father, You've promised us that when two or more of us come together in prayer, agreeing on a thing and bringing it to You, that it will be done according to our prayer. So Father, I ask that as others read this prayer and agree with its words You will count it as agreement and make it so. Please pour Your Loving Mercies out onto Mike, Sondra, Haley, Kayln and Riley.

    I ask these things in Jesus' Precious Name.

    Amen.

  2. If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray.....

    This is an opportunity for the people called by the name of the Lord to unite in prayer. Ask for the same thing people, ask for his divine healing. God still does heal. But if one asks for healing, and another asks for comfort, and another asks for God to be with them and help the doctors, which will God do? Everybody ask for the same thing, for God to reach and and heal him, and in such a manner as to leave no doubt that it had to have been God who did it.

    Give us an update when you hear back that he was healed please?

  6. Patrice,
    Prayer, yes!
    Please let us know if his family needs any financial help during his healing process, and if so, where to send our nickels!

  8. I second what Gretchen says. If the family needs funding, please make it known. I pray for peace and comfort for all of them in this time, but especially the wife. She has a long, hard road ahead, one I have walked. I pray people do not forget how much even the tiniest act can help that family. Watching children a couple of hours, dropping by a casserole, running the vacuum for them-- small things help SO much and are often forgotten.

  13. I am so sorry to hear about your friends brother in law. I will keep him in my prayers and pray for a full and speedy recovery. He will be traveling a long, painful and slow journey towards recovery...but I am sure he can do it.

    I was burned a little over 3 years ago (only 18% on the arms, face, and back) and it is nothing but a miracle of God that any of us who are burned survive that initial pain. AS long as he has his family and friends beside him he will be fine!!
