Chuck Colson in critical condition after brain hemorrhage (Update @ #87)
LifeSiteNews ^ | 4/4/12 | John-Henry Westen

Posted on 04/04/2012 3:57:37 PM PDT by wagglebee

WASHINGTON, DC, April 4, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Evangelical leader and frequent life and family spokesman Chuck Colson is in critical condition in hospital after undergoing surgery this weekend. He was hospitalized Friday after enduring a brain hemorrhage while speaking in Virginia at the Wilberforce Conference.

Colson underwent surgery on Saturday morning to remove a pool of clotted blood on the surface of his brain. Colson became ill while speaking at the Wilberforce Weekend conference on Friday night.

“We believe that we serve a mighty God - the ‘Great Physician’ - and are hoping and praying for Chuck’s full recovery. When I visited him yesterday, I was encouraged to see that as we prayed, Chuck was responsive,” said Prison Fellowship Ministries CEO Jim Liske.

Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America, said in an email comment to LifeSiteNews: “We are praying that God grants him a full recovery. Chuck is the one of the most influential Christian leaders of our time; he has influenced everyone from prisoners to business leaders, thought leaders, and politicians. CWA staff is lifting him up in prayer.”

Brad Mattes of the Life Issues Institute told LifeSiteNews that Colson “has been a shining example of where a Christian needs to be on the critical life issues and other moral and faith issues.” He added, “Our prayers are certainly with Chuck and his family.”

“Colson is listed in critical condition at this point but has shown some early signs of potential for recovery,” said Michelle Farmer, Colson’s spokesperson.

Thanks to Quix for pinging.

Don't know how you feel about Colson, but he and his family could use our prayers...

I pray for Chuck Colson, Lord Jesus , for his healing and return to health if it be thy will. He has been an inspirational Christian man since you saved him in prison and he would be greatly missed here on the earth. Thank you Lord Jesus for your goodness and wonderful works to the children of men.

I think Colson has been a very top flight Christian since his imprisonment.

He took the humbling and disciplining of The Lord well and came out way ahead of most preachers, imho.

Blessed Lord,
we ask your loving care and protection for those who are sick
in body, mind, or spirit and who desire our prayers.
Take from them all fears and help them put their trust in you,
that they may feel your strong arms around them.
Touch them with your renewing love,
that they may know wholeness in you and glorify your name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God,
now and for ever.
AMEN.

I daresay it was the Power of God manifested through the Blood of Jesus Christ that turned Chuck Colson around.
