We ask for prayers

May 20, 2010

The other day a girlfriend was admiring a miniature shrine
to the Virgin Mary that hangs near my front door.
“If you want results,” she said, “pray to Mary. She gets things done!”
“She’s a woman,” I replied.

Fellow blogger and total inspiration Stephanie Nielsen is now in
an eight to 10-hour surgery at an Arizona burn center. You may remember that she was
terribly burned in a small plane accident more than a year ago
and has been undergoing a series of reconstructive surgeries since.

The details are not clear, but apparently an infection set in after
her latest procedure, necessitating today’s surgery
much sooner than anticipated.

The surgery is said to be quite risky.
She is expected to be comatose for a while thereafter.

Stephanie has a loving husband, four gorgeous kids and a close-knit
extended family and Mormon community. She has been an
inspiration to them and so many others.

Whether you pray to Mary, Jesus, God, Allah or anyone else,
please offer one up for Stephanie today.
Thank you.
