Amazing how an anniversary no matter what it’s of stirs memories and flashbacks of pictures. I woke up several time during the night last night transported back into the shared room on the trauma unit of the University of Iowa hospital. It was December 4th, 2006 all over again. That nigh was spent in unrelenting pain as the meds had little effect. That first night I shared a room with a man in his
60’s (poor soul didn’t get a wink of sleep that night) and I remember hearing him pray for me every time I regained consciousness. As they wheeled me to a private room the next morning he said he would continue to pray for my recovery. I never got his name and vaguely remember what he looked like but his prayers still impact my life to this day. James 5:16, The prayers of a righteous person are powerful and effective.
