Pastor John Gray needs the prayers and support of the community. His wife, Aventer Graytook to Instagram and posted that her husband had checked into the intensive care unit at the hospital with a ‘saddle pulmonary embolism in the pulmonary artery and more pulmonary blood clots’, she said written on his page.

A saddle PE is a large blood clot lodged in the main pulmonary artery. The blockage occurs in the leg, then travels to the lungs from large veins and other parts of the body, Healthline reports.

The pastor is in a precarious situation; Aventer said the location of the pastor’s PE saddle is life-threatening if he moves. She explains that he needs two types of surgery due to the pressure on his heart in the next 24 hours. Doctors warned her that other people died in her exact condition. Pastor Gray has to stand still and can’t even go to the bathroom. However, Aventer maintains her faith in God that he will restore her husband to health.

“OK cool! Thank you ma’am! God isn’t done! I don’t care what CT, ECHO, All or any of the tests show! Clearly God isn’t done. Clots need to bow before my God! That’s all!”

She concludes her article by acknowledging the supports of her family.

“THANK YOU TO OUR @relentlessgreenville @relentlessatlanta & our @lakewoodchurch for those who have already literally physically showed up and reached out.
