Pastor John Gray of Relentless Church is in critical condition after being hospitalized last week due to a “severe” pulmonary embolism.
On Sunday, his wife Aventer Gray shared an update about her husband’s condition on Instagram alongside a photo of her holding his hand.
“My family and I stand in need of a miracle. Please keep my husband @realjohngray in your prayers,” she wrote.
Aventer added that the former Book of John Gray star sought medical attention on Thursday after “feeling a little different over the past couple weeks.”
“He went to the ER on Thursday evening and was immediately admitted to CCU [Cardiac Care Unit] with A saddle Pulmonary Embolism in the pulmonary artery and more lung blood clots,” she wrote. “The Saddle PE is in a position that could potentially end his life if it shifts at all. The clot burden is severe and only God is holding it in place.”
She continued, “He is currently in CCU and based on CT & Echo we will need two types of surgery due to the pressure now on the heart within the next 24 hours. To place this in perspective, the doctor said that people have come into the hospital dead with this exact scenario he walked in with.”
Aventer said that the doctor told her that “God has to keep him through the night.” She added, “He can not move, not even get up to walk to a bathroom.”
Aventer concluded the post with a call for people to pray for her husband’s healing.
