I know we have all heard the stories of the Heroes in New York that sifted through the mounds of steel and concrete looking for survivors on 9-11-2001. Our hearts and prayers went out to all the victims and their families during those trying days.
The tragedy of 9-11 still lives in my friend’s family today. His Brother-in-law, Steve is a Lutheran Minister, Chaplin for the FBI East Coast, Professor of Medical Ethics at Stonybrook University and Director of Chaplains at Stonybrook Hospital.
Months after 9-11, Steve began suffering with several different problems with his lungs. The airborne fibers have imbedded themselves into his body. He has been on several different medications and has undergone different treatments. All have been unsuccessful. He would get better for a while, then the infection would return worse than before.
Once again Steve has been admitted the hospital this morning.
The Doctors are trying to do what they can for him. I ask you to please take time from your day and lift up Steve and his wife Linda in prayer asking for the healing hands of Jesus to be placed upon him.
