An update on our praying for Mort ....

"Emergency prayer needed: Mort's children have been told there is practically no hope that he will be able to recover enough to be able to breathe without the ventilator, so the decision has been made (per his living will) to turn off the breathing machice on this Tues. or Wed. The only hope is that he might begin breathing miraclously on his own without the machine when they turn it off. Please pray that this will happen. Even afterwards, he will have to heal from the pneumonia and his kidneys will have to begin functioning again.
Pray also for his children Lisa, John, and Jack who have traveled down from KY to FL to make these hard decisions during this holiday season... from teresa in Ky"


  1. Machines will be turned off this afternoon (Tues.) Please keep his family in your prayers and hearts today and this week.

  2. This is such a tough time for Mort's family. "Our times are in His hands." Much better hands than we have, no matter how loving ours are. I'm just wondering if you have heard any news about Mort. I'm praying for wisdom and strength... and a miracle if the Lord sees fit...

  3. Mort passed away at 1:20 today (Wed.)

    Thank you to everyone who prayed. Thank you, Louise, for posting his prayer request. Thank you for standing side-by-side as prayer warriors.

    Keep his children in your prayers. They have the task of bringing Mort's body up from Fla. to Ky for the funeral and burial. He did not have insurance so they also have the task of selling his possessions for his burial costs. I'm sure some of you know how hard that can be.

    Many thanks, teresa

  4. Lord, be with this family as they have to make such sad decisions about their Dad. Oh, I pray thy will be done in every circumstance.
