May Almighty GOD and His Power Be Praised!!!

They had originally said that no one 
could be in there when 
they attempted to wake him up.  
If he thrashed about they did not want
 the family to see him have to be restrained.  
But surprisingly they let Bob and Vicki and Ryan remain. 
 For over an hour Bob, Vicki and Ryan tried to get Karl to wake up as he came off the sedatives.
After 40 minutes Vicki texted Autumn and said, 
“40 minutes, no response.” 
Autumn started to shake uncontrollably and sob.
Fifty-five minutes and again a text, 
“55 minutes, no response.”
We were out here in the waiting room interceding.
All of a sudden there was a text:
“The doctor screamed at him and then tried 
pain stimulus and he pulled away.”  
We all fell apart.
Vicki just came out and explained that they were gently saying, “Come on Karl, wake up…”
When the doctor came in he said, “I’m not going to be as nice as you have been being…..”
and proceeded to grab Karl’s hand tightly and leaning over the bed screamed, “KARL WAKE UP!  AND PULL AWAY FROM MY HAND.”  
Which Karl did immediately!!
Then the doctor was stimulating his eyes 
and he was moving them some.
The doctor said that he had met goal for today.

*sobs, sobs and more sobs*
The power of ALMIGHTY GOD.
And friends praying?
Doc said it would be a long process.  
Please don’t stop praying for all the things 
I listed a couple of posts ago. 
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank  you from all of the Karl Vigil hanging here at the medical center…...

    I will continue to Pray!! To God be the Glory!!!

    *Hugs* to everyone!!

  3. Tears!! Oh, our precious Lord Jesus, how we thank You for Your kindness and mercy toward Karl and all those who love him. We praise You! Thank you, Lord, for hearing and answering our cries to You. We continue to lift Karl to You, Lord, asking you to completely heal him and restore his body to total health – every cell, every tissue, every fiber of his being.

  4. It is the tiny steps of recovery that are worthy of the hugest celebrations. So thankful for all the prayer warriors and for the patience of all involved. Victory dance here in TN and then it's back to praying…

  5. Yippie! Praise God! So glad to hear this news after praying this morn. As a physical therapist I do know the road will be long but with the support of your family and his family , all the prayer warriors around the world and His miracle working mountain moving God….it CAN be done!! Make sure you and your family get rest too during this time as he will need you down the road of this long journey. Praying for him and strength for all. Love and hugs from NC!

  6. Just caught up with what is going on with you and your family and figured out who Karl is. *tears* My family is all to familiar to what can happen when a loved one is in a motorcycle wreck. Praising God Karl has made it this far. There is no doubt in my mind Karl WILL make it through this. I am and will be praying. Dear sweet Autumn, you are being prayed for as well.

  7. This is going to be the miracle God wants to display for all of us to witness. It will glorify HIM and build our faith. We are the Isrealites lost and begging god for more miracles. He will deliver for Karl. I just know it. πŸ™‚ Praying for you guys. Love that Abi is there in the hospital. Love you! – Jen

  8. Wonderful, encouraging news. I woke up several times in the night and took the opportunity to send up a quick prayer. Still praying for healing from Texas.

  9. Wonderful news! I've been checking in several times today. My husband joined me in praying for Karl this morning! Can't wait to tell him the fabulous update! All Glory to God!

  10. Yipee!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Jesus!!! Praying in Las Vegas, often, throughout the day. Woke up this morning with Karl on my mind. Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers. Praying for strength for the family and Autumn also.

  11. Great news! I remember too well how all the seemingly small milestones felt huge…and they are. Every positive step is a step to recovering. Thank you for the update, I check often and will continue to pray for Karl and all who love him!

  12. Thanks for the update…we have been praying. Since I heard about the accident, I have been specifically praying everytime I am driving and I see a motorcycle. Let me tell you I have seen more motorcycles the last 2 days than I ever have. Each one reminds me of Karl and intercede for him right from my car. Hang in there.


  13. As I am reading this I am thinking about your comment that Karl had spoken about wanting to be baptised…think about what an incredible testimony he will have to share on that day :]

  14. I went to my solitude place for prayer and asked God to reveal a verse to me. This is what He told me. Psalms 91:14-15 Because he loves me, "says the Lord, " I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

    I know God will heal and give Karl a beautiful life. God confides in those who fear Him. I know God spoke this verse to me. Continuing to pray.

  15. Praise God, for He is GREAT!!!! Awesome news! Me and 4 of my kids have Karl's name on our hands, and we have been praying for him constantly. Even my 2 year old wanted to have Karl on his hand so he could "pway for Karl." Many, many prayers continue…

    "Wait on the Lord: be of good courage,
    and He shall stengthen thine heart:
    Wait, I say, on the Lord."
    Psalm 27:14

  16. Praise God's Holy Name !!! My prayers continue in Missouri for Karl, Autumn, and both of your families. I will not stop praying. Thank you Heavenly Father.

  17. Yay! So exciting to hear!

    I didn't sign up for prayer on the list because I did not want to forget, I know me too well. Call it what you will… but I have been praying whenever the Lord lays Karl on my heart (which is often). I just wanted to share that today while I was by myself making beds for the preschoolers I began praying, and then I heard Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" and I just kept hearing it as I prayed over and over again. I don't know if that's for Karl or Autumn or quite possibly both, but it happened when I was in my quiet time praying for him yesterday as well. God's hand is all over this and it is so exciting to see.

    Stay strong, God's up to something!

    Oh and one more thing, today after praying for Karl and Autumn and his family this song popped in my head and I laughed out loud, but it fits. "Oh I went to the enemies camp and I took back what he stole from me, took back what he stole from me….."

  18. Totally crying! Thank you Jesus!!! Right before Christmas my dear FIL had a medical complication with some of his medications (he's been living with chronic pain for over a decade) and ended up almost dying. He was resuscitated and put on a ventilator. When he was in his coma-like state and when we didn't know if he'd ever wake up and if he did what brain damage he might have – it was SO terrifying! When he did wake up, and fully functioning?? Wow! What an amazing miracle. Reading this about Karl took me back to that hospital room. Continuing to Pray for Karl and Praise Jesus, from whom all blessings flow!!!

  19. Praise GOd!!!!!!!!!! such a powerful time of prayer for karl this morning till 1am. could just feel the prayers of the saints lifting him up before the mercy seat!! Praise HIm! much love and hugs autumn!!!

  20. Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers – thank you for answering – we will ever praise your name!!

    "Shouts of joy and victory
    resound in the tents of the righteous:
    "The LORD'S right hand has done mighty things!
    The LORD'S right hand is lifted high;
    the LORD'S right hand has done mighty things"!

    Psalm 118:15-16

  21. Praise God!!!! Starting my "hour" but been praying for him thought out the day πŸ™‚ just had wanted to check for an update. We serve such an AWESOME GOD!

  22. Satan will go to huge lengths to try and get your focus off the orphan and those two dear children you are trying to get home. But God is great and He is the winner. Here in Australia I am remembering to pray many times a day. Thank you Lord for all that you have already done. You have your keeping hand on Karl or he would have been gone . Thank you for his continued improvement until he becomes the young man you want him to be.

    I see a young man standing in a church totally sold out for you, giving a powerful testimony.

    Love to you and the family.

  23. This is beyond awesome! Watching miracles happen before our eyes (well, you know what i mean…blog eyes, anyway)!! The power of the Almighty…right here…in the present…working out the mountain moving miracles…such great and awesome news that he is responding! To kick out like that (on your Twitter update) let's you know he can hear! Continuing to pray for strength for you all and for the miracles to continue for Karl! Let the trumpets sound…the Lord is doing a great work! Thanking Him from Whom all blessings flow! Won't stop praying! Awesome update!!! <3

  24. Prayed, praying from Florida!
    Isaiah 43:18&19
    Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these. He who brings out the starry host one by one and knows them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength not one of them is missing." AMEN!
    Love this family and will continue to lift them up to the One and Only, Jesus!
    Theresa Bradford and family

  25. "We call Him the Miracle-Working, Mountain-Moving, Awe-Inspiring, Gasp-Giving God!!"

    In case you needed reminding the above line is from your blog introduction. I cannot think of a better name to call on for Karl!

    I can't help but remember those days in the hospital with my uncle, waiting and waiting for signs of life returning to him… Sometimes we would see little glimmers of hope, but then they would fade, and ultimately his time came to an end.

    How much JOY you must be experiencing right now watching Karl come back to life bit by bit! And he WILL continue to regain his life & strength! Through tears of joy, we will all continue to pray for him to be fully restored… AND then to testify boldly to the great power of the ONE and ONLY GOD who healed him!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for allowing all of us to share in this part of the journey with you. What a privilege!

    Love you!

  27. Praise the Lord! Praying all day and wanted to check in while I prayed at my 9 pm hour. What an encouragement to praise Jesus for what He has done while continuing to pray for healing and endurance for all who are running this marathon. Love to you all!

  28. Still praising God from Missouri. My "hour" was at 11:00 this morning, and again at 11:00 tonight…….and I have been praying throughout this day and evening. Glory be to God.

  29. …talk about a YIPPEE, JESUS!!!

    Full of JOY and PRAISES here in TX and you better believe we will not stop HOPING and PRAYING!

    Thank you, GOD!!!

    "May the GOD of Hope fill you with all Joy and Peace as you trust in HIM, so that you may overflow with Hope by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT." Romans 15:13

    (((BIG HUGS))) and Much Love,
