Update on the Pious Reader Timotheos

From Mar Michael, 7:10 AM EDT, this morning:

"Dear Friends: I am grateful to all for your prayers for Reader Timotheos. He remains in ICU. As of yesterday [Wednesday] he still was unable to breathe without a respirator, remains heavily sedated, and is receiving nourishment intravenously, and so in such respects he is no better; yet the doctors have, by means of various tests, eliminated the worst of the possibilities, and now think that a virus is the primary cause. The current plan is to simply provide continuing life support until the virus runs its course. In a few days he is expected to be able to breathe without assistance and begin making a full recovery. Do please continue to pray, both for Tim and for others in our fold that are in need, as "The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results (Jas 5:6)." Yours in Christ Jesus, Mar Michael"

Prayer Request

Please keep the Pious Reader Timotheos Coram in your prayers, He is in the Intensive Care Unit at a hospital in Knoxville.

Mar Michael reports that he saw Tim this evening and prayed with him. Mar Michael states that Tim seemed responsive to prayer even though he remained sedated at that time. According to Mar Michael, Tim is now scheduled to be in the ICU for the next 3-5 days after having had a procedure this morning to remove fluid from his chest.

"Lord Jesus, have mercy on your servant, Timotheos."

Whatever it is...

It's all Anselm's fault.
