Prayer request. Friend in bike accident

My best friend Andy has lost the lower part of his leg below the knee in a bike accident. A car hit him side on coming out of a side road. Irony is, the driver was a medical doctor at the local hospital. Anyway, it would be great if you could say some prayers for him and ask God to make his leg grow back.

Thanks.

    Thank you for coming to us with this request. We will definitely lift him up in prayer. I want to ask you a couple of things that may be very helpful to the situation. Firstly, does your friend follow Jesus? Secondly, why do you think this has happened?

    God will make your friend whole, but only if the reason this all happened for can be dealt with. The main reason that anything like this happens is to bring God glory. One of the most common ways of achieving this is to use accidents like this to bring us to Himself. Have you considered that this may be at least one way that He is trying to show you that He is real? I ask with the intent of evaluating the real situation behind this accident. If this situation has happened because you or him or others around him refuse to merely believe in Him let alone follow after Him, then your friend’s leg will not heal unto you or whoever else comes to this realization. Consider for a moment, everything you have. Family, friends, money, success, a home, health, freedom, rights, possibly a job, and anything else you can think of, think on these things for a moment. How much do they mean to you? What if I told you that God will take away all of this, one by one, until you figure out what is more important, Him or stuff?

    Out of love, I want to leave you with this warning. As bad as this situation is medically, financially, emotionally, etc., it will get worse for your friend and for you until you make this decision. As God said in Mark 9:
    43…If thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
    44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
    45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:
    46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
    47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:
    48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
    49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.
    50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.

    My last question for you, and for him, is how much more will it take?

      I just want to tell you a little bit about me, so that you can understand just how real this is. Because of the choices I made and my constant rejection of Him, it took prison to get me to open my eyes. With all of this, I lost freedom and rights, family, friends, my job, health insurance, I lost the ability to get many of the jobs out there, especially in these times. I lost the trust of basically everyone that I knew, and simply put, I had to start completely over in every possible way. Before prison, I dropped out of high school my sophomore year, before receiving my driver’s license and of course graduating. As a result I had to get a GED, which hurts about now, and had to fight pretty hard to get a driver’s license. Needless to say, I lost everything, some temporarily and some permanently. This list here is not even close to the extent and I couldn’t go into those kind of details with going into tears and rambling on. It sounds pretty much like I was an idiot. Well, yes I was, but even more so, I was an atheist. I wanted nothing to do with God and so I lost everything. That does not have to be your story, sir!

      In the midst of all this, I completely gave up on running and faced God when He showed me who He was and what He was doing. I will say that He freed me from a lot of stuff, including some pretty heavy drug/alcohol addictions, and He did give me a lot back that I didn’t have, including family and a couple friends. He gave me things I never had both things that you can see, feel, smell, etc. and things that you cannot.

      Oh and one more thing, I’m only 19 and, as most have said throughout all of this, just a kid/someone’s little baby. If you think this couldn’t happen to you, think again.
