THIS PRAYER REQUEST WAS SENT OUT DECEMBER 9:
Please be in prayer for Jural Reid, the grandson of Rev. Karen Cleveland, pastor of East Leon Wesleyan Church. Jural is 21 years old and was in a serious car accident. He is in ECMC in critical condition with severe head trauma.
UPDATE: "God is still in the miracle business," says Pastor Karen Cleveland about the amazing recovery of her grandson Jural. He is home and has completed occupational therapy. He does have a ways to go to complete recovery as he is blind in one eye due to blood behind the retina and he suffers from short term memory loss due to the severe head trauma. Please continue to pray that Jural will have complete healing and that he will continue to sense the power and love of the Lord who healed him.
Jesus' example teaches us that prayer is about relationship.
When He prays, He is not performing a duty; He is getting close to His Father.
