PLEASE PRAY FOR TED JENNINGS

We learned from Schalene, Ted Jennings’ daughter, that he still has not regained consciousness after an induced coma following surgery for the removal of a benign brain tumor. In addition, he is suffering from pneumonia, MERSA and blood clots. Ted is still at Duke University Hospital.

Ted needs our prayers for God’s healing and we ask that God’s will be done.
