  16. Ron

    Reverend Elbert Ward of Alabama is in dire need of a miracle. He has been placed in Hospice care with congested heart failure. The doctors have claimed there’s nothing more they can do but the doctors are not God!

    Reverend Ward served as a minister for most of his life and has touched countless lives over the years. He’s loved by many due to selflessly dedicating his life to helping others. Now he needs our help and prayers.

    Please add him to your prayer list and pray for his healing and a complete miracle. He is our hero and rock and the world can’t afford to lose someone like him. I understand you don’t know him, and he lives miles away, but if you met him, you would instantly love and adore him as so many others do. I can promise you that! He’s an inspirational figure and a valuable asset to this world!

    Please help him by praying for complete healing and spreading the word. Thanks and God bless!
