Urgent Prayer Request

My friend Robyn over at 3 Girls Mom has a friend who is in urgent need of a miracle.

I'm just copying and pasting her blog post, and editing just a couple words:

Friends,Your prayer is desperately needed for Katherine Wolf.

Here's the story.Katherine suffered a stroke on Monday caused by an Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). An AVM is a massive tangle of blood vessels in the brain. It is a congenital condition that can cause massive bleeding because the blood vessels are very weak and very fragile. Katherine's AVM was located near her brain stem. She has undergone a 12 hour operation to stop the bleeding in her brain and is currently in the very beginning, baby stages of waking up. She has blinked a couple of times and has moved her fingers and toes. She has been married to Jay since 2004 and has a 6 month old son, James. Her family is from Athens, GA and Jay's family is from Montgomery, AL. She went to Samford University in Birmingham. She just turned 26 in March.She was also a recent contestant on "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader." She was the pregnant girl. You might remember her if you watch the show.

I do not know Katherine well. I have only met her a couple of times. I know Jay and his family and have known them for a looong time. I have always admired Jay and his love for people, so I knew when he married, he would marry someone incredible. What I didn't know was HOW incredible Katherine was. She has an energy that is contagious and a smile that people don't forget. She is a servant for God with every ounce of who she is. She RADIATES Christ. She and Jay moved to Malibu after they married so she could pursue an acting/modeling career. Jay is currently in law school at Pepperdine. People all over the country know Katherine and have joined together and are praying diligently for this amazing young woman. Now I am asking you to do the same.

Jay is asking us to pray Mark 5:41 for her. It says, "He took her by the hand and said to her, “Talitha koum!” (which means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!” )." The Body of Christ is a powerful group. We all know the miraculous powers of Christ, and we are praying for a miracle for her every day. Every hour. Every minute.

Here's what I am asking you to do.
1. Post a link to this blog post anywhere you can. Anywhere people are reading. Let's get people everywhere to pray for her. Turn this into a "chain mail" blog post. Let's see how far it can reach.
2. Visit the sites already created for Katherine. Here's one. Here's one. For those of you who have a Facebook, there are 2 groups dedicated to her. One is called "Pray for Katherine Arnold Wolf" and the other is "Praying for Katherine Wolf." They are open groups, so you can join without being invited. Let people know that you are praying for her.

To my SIESTAS, this is an urgent call to action. We have prayed for each other and lifted each other up more times than I can count. I need you. Today. Now. My blog is small, but I know that many of you have blogs that are read by lots and lots of people. Will you please help me get the word out about Katherine? I know I can count on y'all!Thank you for your diligence. I'm so excited to watch God work in ways that will shake up everyone who has heard about Katherine's situation. I have faith that many, many people will be changed by not only watching what miracles God does in Katherine's life, but by also watching the Body of Christ come together for her. This will be one of those situations that will make people say, "Wow. I want to know the God that healed her." What an opportunity to give Jesus complete and total credit! Awesome.

Do what you can, but it only takes a second to agree in prayer.

Thanks. You rock.
Kat opened her eyes today. Baby steps. Miracles don't necessarily happen quickly.
