Prayer has been requested for Charlotte Poyner, wife of Jim Poyner, longtime pastor of Gulfview Grace Brethren Church, Port Richey, Fla, and mother of Paul Poyner, current pastor of Gulfview Grace. She has been hospitalized after collapsing due to a blood clot. Below is a message sent by Paul.
I ask the team to pray for my mom. Yesterday ( September 5), she experienced a blood clot that caused her to lose consciousness and she blacked out in a parking lot. She was found unresponsive and those who came to her aid did CPR while EMS arrived. She is in critical care on a respirator at this time. She has other sustained injuries from a lacerated kidney to some internal bleeding and she hit her head very hard. She was unresponsive until several hours in ER. We are not sure how long she went without oxygen but she finally came somewhat coherent and was nodding her head answering questions and tracking. We praise the Lord for that big miracle moment!! She has quite a road ahead and doctors are being very cautious with treatment due to other injuries. Please continue to pray for her neurological functions and that blood clots can be dissolved, that the blood thinners will not cause any other issues as she still has minor kidney bleeding and pray for complete healing. I covet your prayers at this time for her and my family.
