Again, For Becca

I thought this would sum up the events of the last 36 hours.

*Again, to Becca: I'm so sorry honey and I can't help but believe he'll come home. I know you sometimes think our definitions of God are as different as night and day, but I can promise you He hears our prayers nonetheless.
Hey Everyone,
I have a prayer request that I hope you will honor and pass on. Yesterday we received word from the army that my sweet baby brother, Chris, had been wounded in action. His armored vehicle was hit with an IED (bomb) and the impact was right where he was sitting. He and another soldier were rushed to the hospital in Kandahar, and Chris went into five hours of emergency surgery. Unfortunately they were not able to save his right leg, and had to amputate it from the knee down. He was in serious condition, and moved to a hospital in Germany last night. We received word today that he has been downgraded to very serious condition. The doctors examined him this morning, but we don't know anything else yet. The army may pay for my parents to go to Germany, but we are waiting for word on this as well. Please pray that his condition improves, for wisdom for the doctors, and that my parents will be able to visit him. Pray against infection and shock for his body, and for his emotional and spiritual well-being once he wakes up. Also, please pray for all of us who love him, as we feel helpless so far away from him. Thank you so much in advance for your prayers.
Love in Christ,

I know I'm a little late with this, but for what it's worth God got a prayer from me for Becca and her family. And one for you too, for being a good friend. :-)
