Today's Prayer Memo is bring written by Tim Altman, CEO of the Dawson McAllister Association


With a heavy, but hopeful heart, I am writing today's memo as Dawson's friend. As reported earlier, last Saturday, Dawson's son Fulton suffered a devastating head injury in an auto accident. First, let me report on the progress he has made.

 

Fulton is now breathing on his own with the help of a tracheotomy. Fluid pressure in his head is in the normal range and stable. All sedatives and most pain killers have been withdrawn. He does have pneumonia, which is not unusual for an immobilized patient. They are aggressively treating this with antibiotics and attempting to move him as much as possible.

 

While still unconscious, he has coughed and begun to move his arms and legs a bit. If he continues to progress, doctors think they may be able to move him to a rehabilitation setting shortly after the first of the year. Bottom line, he appears to have survived the most life-threatening phase of this crisis. God's mercies are great. It is without question that your many prayers are being heard.

 

Now to Dawson. As he and I were speaking yesterday, he spoke of his fears and his faith. He said, "There have been battles with grief and anxiety, but God has been faithful to give me peace that He is working all things together for good." He went on, "I will never be the same. Though there is a huge ache in my heart, I have handed my son over to the Lord and told him that whatever brings Him the most honor and glory are what I want from this."


This was a private moment, but I don't believe Dawson will mind that I have shared it because it brings honor to God. His words remind me of a man from another time. Other than Jesus, no man in the Bible experienced more grief than Job. He lost all he owned and everyone he loved. But in his grief, he chose to grow toward God, not turn away, "At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said: Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised." Job 1:20-21

 

My friend Dawson does not yet know if his son will come back, or when he does, in what condition. But, like Job, he has he has used his grief to grow toward God, not turn away.

 

On behalf of the McAllister family, thank you for your love and prayers.

 

 

Pray that God wake Fulton up and that when he does, he will be of sound mind.

 

Pray that that God will continue to pour out His peace and new mercies on Dawson, Ruth Hill and Gene (Fulton's brother).

 

Pray, as Dawson has, that the LORD will indeed receive honor and glory from every moment of their struggle.

Dear heavenly father, I came before you this evening to ask for your help in healing Fulton. Lord, I continue to pray for Fulton with an open heart and mind giving thanks to you for your grace and love. Father I pray that you awaken Fulton in such a way that only you can do that so Fulton has a complete recovery from all of the injuries that he has sustained. Father I give you to my all, for you worthy of praise. Please bring Fulton back to his family healthy, happy, and with a renewed spirit.

Father I believe in you and ask that you hear my prayers for Jesus said in Matthew 18:19 “Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.” Father I know I am not alone in asking you heal Fulton quickly and completely.

Father I know that you have a plan for Fulton and I am eager to see it play out. I know there is a purpose that Fulton will fulfill and bring glory and honor to you Lord.

Father I am also praying for Dawson, Ruth Hill, and Gene. Please Lord give them a sense of your presence and bring comfort to them. I pray that all their worries go away and they put full faith and trust into you oh Lord. Please give them love and peace.

I am thankful for you Lord and pray to you in Jesus name, Amen.

-Bart

I will be praying for Fulton and the family.  God bless you Dawson, your ministry to a bunch of snotty nosed Jr. Highers and High Schoolers back in the '70's is still bearing fruit.

May His Spirit bring you peace in the storm.

Father please comfort and wrap your arms around this family, give them the peace that you gave to me in my time of suffering.  I truly feel the pain that they are going through.  The prayers they lifted up for my daughter 6 years ago when she suffered a brain injury from a car accident and was in the coma 14 long days.    It was a long road but you gave her back to me whole and she is living a prosperous life.  Please I ask you continue blessing Fulton and let him open his eyes and wake up for he has so much to give.
