Powerful Prayer In (ICU)

Written by: Janice Scott

Waking up from being in a comma
In the hospital psych ward
I looked around to try and get my bearings
But I still couldn’t grasp where I was
As I slowly opened my red swollen eyes
To see exactly what I could see
I looked into the eyes of my sister
She was staring down at me
She called out my name “Tina”
More times than I could count
I could only surmise from hearing her voice
The times were an indefinite amount
I heard familiar sounds that 
I’d heard many times before
They came from my baby sister Jackie
She was praying for me right there on the hospital floor
I turned and I looked around the room
To see who else was there  
I felt like I heard prayers surrounding me
They were coming from everywhere
I looked around and saw my dad Jeff
And my Aunt Barbara and my Uncle Curt too
As if in sync, they all said to me 
“Tina, we are all, right here for you”
Those beautiful words I heard from them
Gave me the strength that day to want to stay alive 
Because they were in that room praying for me
I literally felt the presence of GOD!
Prayer is so very powerful and all I had left was my faith
To ensure that I would pull through
So I write this poem to thank God the father
My aunt, my uncle, my father, and Jackie
I especially want to thank you!
