For the injured

My co-worker Sandi just called. Her husband Lewis was in an accident today and is about to be transferred to Tulane Med Center. His eye has been damaged and they will be doing surgery first thing tomorrow morning. There is a chance he may lose it.

Lots of prayers for Lewis and Sandi, please. Thanks.

Strengthen your servant Lewis, O God, to do what he has to do and bear what he has to bear; that, accepting your healing gifts through the skill of surgeons and nurses, he may be restored to usefulness in your world with a thankful heart; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
With him we hold all those whose lives this day have suddenly been altered through sickness or injury.

Update:
I learned this morning that they were not able to save his eye.  Prayers continue for them both as they go through a difficult adjustment.
