3 AM Homburg, Germany - Urgent Update

Coleman continues to have blood pressure problems and again there is concern about his breathing.

Our excellent doctors are doing their best to balance the many variables to acheive a certain stability - blood pressure, blood chemistry, fluids, respiration, etc - each of which affects the other adding to the difficulty. While the situation does not appear to be as dire as last night, Coleman's critical status must stabilze long enough for the doctors to continue their investigations into causal factors.

Please continue to pray for wisdom for the staff to manage these variables and most importantly healing and stamina for Coleman.

  1. Thank you Lord for your servants that have dedicated their lives to be healers. Give them not only insight, but stamina; not only forsight, but hope; not only compassion, but mercy; not only their best, but You! May those on call tonight be dutiful and may we trust You to watch over them, giving us rest. May it be a holy night!

  3. What a friend we have in Jesus.

  4. What a friend we have in Jesus,
    all our sins and griefs to bear!
    What a privilege to carry
    everything to God in prayer!
    O what peace we often forfeit,
    O what needless pain we bear,
    all because we do not carry
    everything to God in prayer.

    Have we trials and temptations?
    Is there trouble anywhere?
    We should never be discouraged;
    take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Can we find a friend so faithful
    who will all our sorrows share?
    Jesus knows our every weakness;
    take it to the Lord in prayer.

    Are we weak and heavy laden,
    cumbered with a load of care?
    Precious Savior, still our refuge;
    take it to the Lord in prayer.
    Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
    Take it to the Lord in prayer!
    In his arms he'll take and shield thee;
    thou wilt find a solace there.

  5. Please, God. Show us our Christmas miracle in the name of Coleman. He has shown so much that he wants to stay with us & serve you longer. He wants to marry Jordan & have a wonderful family & life with her. Please allow him to speak your name throughout the rest of his life. He is worthy. People across the nation are praying for this fine young man. If I could take his place right now, I absolutely would! He is worth it! Please, God, heal Coleman & allow his parents to have peace that their son will live a long healthy life hereafter.

    P.S. I have never actually prayed before. Since the news a week ago I have been praying every morning when my eyes open, as I get ready for work, on my long drive to work, several times while I'm at work, on my way home, as I lay my head down. As you can see, every waking moment of the day my thoughts & prayers are with Coleman and his family through this difficult time. Coleman is worth so much to so many people and have touched the lives of so many! People that don't know Coleman but have learned of him through all of this. So many people are "Rooting for Coleman." Stay strong! Keep the fight up! You are our champion & my hero!

    Much love.

  7. Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
    1 Corinthians 13:7

    Lord I lift you up in praise and thank you for all your blessings to us and the miracles we have seen. I know you hold Coleman in our healing arms, and I have no doubt that you will heal his body and bring him home to us all.

    The joy of the Lord is your strength.

  10. Our son SPC Spositi, a friend of Coleman's shared his dire need and requested urgent prayer. We have shared this with others and we know that many hearts in Texas and on the east coast are standing with you now. Along with hundreds already praying - we're joining in, asking Almighty God to intervene and restore Coleman's health.

  11. Lord, please allow Coleman to stabalize and be with the doctors as they are trying to stabalize him. You have blessed us so many times with these small improvements and Lord we just pray for a full recovery of Coleman. Amen


    Coleweezy - I have told you this a thousand times but I will say it again, you never cease to keep amazing me. You always could take my bad days and turn them into something good and when I was upset or angry, even if I didn't want to, you would make me laugh. I love you so much and I will only keep loving you more everyday.

  14. Dear Lord
    I pray that you just hold Coleman in your arms and for him to feel your mighty presence, peace, and holiness. I pray that you give the doctors MORE wisdom and walk them through each step to bring Coleman back to a healthy young man.. Give Coleman the strength to just sit up in that hospital bed and watch the doctors and everyone else in that room stand astouned. That would be THE DAY!!! Lord I pray Colemans liver will start to function correctly, his blood pressure to go back to normal, and for an awesome complete recovery through YOU! Thank you for the small improvements to Colemans breathing and I ask that these little steps hes taking turn into HUGE steps.
    Continue to bring peace and comfort to Belinda and Eric as they are staying so strong through this, let them feel your presence every second day and night. In your name we pray, Amen.

    I will pray without ceasing.

    Love Heather

    We are also praying for the medical staff to have widsom and insight into the root causes so that they can deliver the most effective treatment possible.

    We are believing with you for continued progress and miracles.

  16. So good to hear Coleman is experiencing some improvement. I pray the doctors will have opportunity to look for causes. I pray that you all will be able to lay your cares at the feet of Jesus. We all want to DO something to help...in the end He is in control. His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We love you Coleman.
    We love you Belinda and Eric. We miss you all and want you home with us! But, we must accept His will not ours, his timing not ours.May we all be able to be as strong as Coleman, Belinda and Eric are having to be right now. Lord give us strength as a family, as friends, as believers in your ability to perform a miracle today. xxxoooBets

  20. "The Name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous runs into it and is safe."

    Proverbs 18:10

    Several years ago during a very hard time in my life, I called a precious Christian sister and told her "I just want to run! As far away and for as long as I can."

    In wisdom from God she said,
    "Jes. WHERE are you going to run?"

    We'd just been studying the above verse in the Precept study, "Lord, I Want to Know You"...a study of the Hebrew names of God.

    She reminded me of the trustworthiness of this verse, and of the fact that God truly is our strong tower...we are save in Him.

    Praying for you all tonight..and rejoicing before God for every victory...and asking for more!

    Sending love your way,
    Jes

  24. Isn't it amazing at how perfect strangers come together when a brother or sister is in need.

    I need you
    you need me
    we're all apart of God's body
    stand with me agree with me
    we're all apart of God's body

    It is His will that every need be supplied
    You are important to me
    I need you to survive

    I'll pray for you
    You pray for me
    I love you
    I need you to survive
    I won't harm You
    With words from my mouth
    I love You
    I need you to survive

  25. 'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
    and to take him at his word;
    just to rest upon his promise,
    and to know, "Thus saith the Lord."

    Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him!
    How I've proved him o'er and o'er!
    Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
    O for grace to trust him more!

    O how sweet to trust in Jesus,
    just to trust his cleansing blood;
    and in simple faith to plunge me
    neath the healing, cleansing flood!

    Yes, 'tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
    just from sin and self to cease;
    just from Jesus simply taking
    life and rest, and joy and peace.

    I'm so glad I learned to trust thee,
    precious Jesus, Savior, friend;
    and I know that thou art with me,
    wilt be with me to the end.

  27. Who are we to request that God restore Coleman instead of taking him to the glory of heaven?
    Well...we are human. And our deep desire is that our brother, son, grandson, fiance, cousin, nephew, fellow soldier and friend be restored to good health. Forgive us, Lord, if we are selfish, but that is our desire, and You have said in your Word we, Your children, can bring our requests to You (Phil 4:6). in fact, You invite us to bring them to the very throne of God (Heb 4:16). And so we wait for You, continuing to pray, continuing to trust that Your will is good and right.

  32. pray this prayer:

    The Lord is taking away from me all sickness. His Word contains the ability to do what it says. His Word will not return void but will accomplish what it was sent to do. The Lord is taking away from me all sickness, every trace of weakness and deficiency. Sickness is going out of me now. Thank You, Father, for taking away from me all sickness like You said.

I pray that Coleman's family will experiance God's peace, not the peace of this world, but the Peace He left for us to have. Father, we ask that you use your resources to heal your son. I await with great expectation for you Lord.

  36. We're still praying. (Who could forget?!) It is so beautiful to me to see that in the midst of this, the names of God are being spoken and magnified, spreading like wildfire across the world! Coleman, you are delighting your Heavenly Father, even in your greatest weakness. Your life is bringing glory and honor to His most holy Name. I can't believe that the adorable little boy Kelley, Amy and I used to play with has grown to be such a mighty man of God, counted worthy to suffer for a time for His sake. We are ALL proud of you. We are praying for your deliverance and in the meantime rest in your Father's arms. You are precious in His sight.

  37. Father please stabilize Coleman, and give the doctors crystal clear insight as to what his causal issues are. I pray they are all "treatable" and "things begin to look up." We know the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy...so, we ask You Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ, to bind all the enemy has done or attempted to do, and now release only Your Work and Your Power over Coleman. Where there has been confusion, we ask for clarity...where there has been what appears to be walls...Father we ask for Your Truth and Healing to come forth! More than we could ask for or imagine... m. teague

    I pray that you will make a phone call to Colonel Joe Hart, 479-451-8517. My husband had a rare form of leukemia and almost lost his life this September. According to statistics and the oncologist, he should be on his death bed again at this time, but he is not. His last "special blood test" came back clean. Cancer free with NO conventional treatments, but just by doing what Col. Joe said to do. I pray you make the call. God Bless.

  42. Lord, You are worthy to receive all praise and glory and honor. This is true regardless of what happens today. Lord we are Your servants and it is an honor to serve You in whatever role You place us.

    I pray for Eric and Belinda as they currently serve You at the side of their son Coleman. I pray that their witness for You will shine bright in the difficult and long days and nights. I pray that those around them will have no doubt where their strength comes from and will be drawn to You.

    I pray for visitors to this site that do not have a saving relationship with Your son. May they hear the truth and accept Your gift of life and may today be the day of salvation.

    I pray for Coleman's family who are not able to be with him in Germany and ask that You will strengthen them and sustain them. May they find comfort in You and see the value in the prayers that they pour out to You.

    I pray for Coleman Lord. I pray that his blood pressure will stabilize, that the fluid in his lungs will continue to be reduced, that his oxygen levels will continue to increase, I pray for his liver to function fully, I pray that the causal reasons will be found and effective treatment begun.

    Father God for reasons that we don't begin to understand You have lead us to this point. I thank You for the many good things and valuable lessons that I have seen and learned in the last eight days. I thank You for the many miracles You have already provided -- from speedy passports, to luggage that isn't overweight, to a medical staff that provides such excellent care, from the reduction of the ventilator oxygen concentration and so many more. And yet Father God, I ask for more.

    You invite us to bring our concerns to You and lay them at Your feet. You gave us a parable that teaches us not to give up in presenting our requests to You. And so here we are Lord, asking for more.

    I love you Lord.

And yet, we come to You for more - because You are the one and only Almighty God.

We entrust them all to You.

  46. How about a Christmas song? This is the chorus of a song from Point of Grace - Emmanuel God With Us.
    Sing it Belinda! (that alone might wake Coleman up!)

    Oh Emmanuel, God with us
    Spirit revealed in us
    That we may be your hope to the world
    Oh Emmanuel, God with us
    With a light to break the darkness
    That we may show your hope to the world
    Emmanuel, God with us
    Be God in us

    I think we are seeing this now in all that has happened over the last few days. He is here with us, and here is there in Germany with you. That brings me great comfort
