01 Aug Prayer for Pastor Glen Jackson
Thursday evening, I had the privilege of spending some time with family and friends of Pastor Glen. After receiving news that Doctors had asked Nicki if she was prepared to make the decision to take Glen off of life support, I was able to head over to the Hospital.
The outpouring of support for Glen at the hospital was tremendous. There were a number of family members, church members and friends present. I had the opportunity to spend some time with some of them, and it was extremely uplifting.
Near the end of my time there, Nicki came out from Glen’s room. She shared that the Neurologist clarified that they are not asking for her to make a decision right away. He believes it is too soon to make those decisions. He encouraged her to wait through the weekend at least to see how he does over the next few days.
While the bleeding in the brain is persisting and is happening faster than it can be drained, Glen’s body is reproducing the lost blood supply, which means he hasn’t to this point needed any transfusions. On the other hand, the Neurologist also said that bleeding of this type usually does more damage to the brain the longer it goes on.
Clearly, the Jackson’s really do need a miracle from God for Glen! Please continue to pray that God will bring healing and peace to Glen over these next days. Pray for peace for Glen’s wife, Nicki, and their daughters, Erin, Ashley and Christina, as well as extended family.
