Pray for Steve Reid

Please pray for Steve Reid. He is the Church Planter Strategist in DC with the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia. He has had chronic back pain for years and is now completely incapacitated in the hospital. I talked with him a few weeks ago and he was hurting then and is much worse now, unable to communicate or work. He was my trainer for Basic Training for Church Planters seven years ago in New England and is a generous and passionate guy and a gifted church planting mentor. Geoff Hammond of the SBCV shares the details in this prayer request:

Dear Folks,
Please pray for Steve Reid. He’s back in the hospital in room 2001 of Mary Washington. According to the MRI yesterday, the steel bar they placed in his back has shifted (bent about ½ inch) and is dangerously close to the spine. It is also pressing on a nerve. The doctor is giving some time for divine intervention, and therefore; we are calling you to pray that the Lord would move the nerve and the rod. Otherwise, Steve may face surgery again at the beginning of next week. Please ask the Lord to heal Steve without any further surgery.

We know He can do what seems to be impossible!

Blessings in Christ,

Dr. Geoff Hammond

Please ask folks to pray for Steve.
