Yehuda is a homeschool dad in Israel, we have known the family via email for many years. Yehuda got an abscess on his thigh about a month ago that got infected with flesh-eating bacteria. He has been critically ill ever since. He is going in for major surgery tomorrow (Monday) morning. It’s expected to be long surgery (5-6 hours) and they’re not at all sure that he’ll survive. If he does, it is likely that he’ll make a complete recovery.
Brandel, his wife, is asking us all to say extra prayers ESPECIALLY during the hours of surgery, 12 Midnight tonight to 6 AM Eastern time (7 AM – 1 PM in Israel).
Yehuda was somewhat conscious at one point today, and managed to nod his head in answer to a couple of questions.
Please share this with anyone who would be willing to pray for Yehuda tonight/tomorrow – the more prayers the better!
His Hebrew name is Yehuda Nachum ben Chava.
Father, hear our prayer for Yehuda’s swift and complete healing, for skill and compassion for his caregivers, and peace and strength and hope for all who love him. Mother Mary, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
