4/16 10:00am Meg is struggling for every breath this morning. Docs in and out. Going to have to do a bedside surgical procedure early this afternoon to relieve fluid around her lungs & heart. Also white blood count is rising which could mean infection. God, it is so hard to watch Meg fighting for her life. Please, God, we need a miracle SOON.


  1. From John and Sandy Pruett, OLD friends of your dad's...we saw on Facebook this morning the call to prayer and fasting. We're IN... and..."pray that you, Megan, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints in the Moss family, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you, Megan, may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen." -Ephesians 3:17-21

  2. My name is Anna Vaughn and Megan and I went to college together at HLG. I have loved Megan from the very beginning and she has always been an inspiration to me. I have been praying for her and your family and can't wait to see what the Lord will do through this for HIS glory. May you be blessed today and always. Please send my love to Megan and let her know she is on my heart and in my every prayer. I love you Megan and you are so beautiful!

  3. my wife and I went to Hannibal La Grange college with Megan. If you ever asked Megan a question about someone, she would say "oh I love him/her". She always said it with exclamation. Megan is very good at reflecting God's love towards people. We are praying for a Miracle Megs! We Love You!!

  4. Wayne, The info below is from an email I received this afternoon from Susan Smith. I don't know Susan personally, but she asked me to forward her message to you:

    You don’t know me…but I have been praying for Megan Moss…..I am trying to send this to the dad….can you send it?

    I got this via email today…a devotional I subscribe to.

    Thanks so much if you can…

    Love in Jesus….Susan Smith

    Here it is……


    Hope is a powerful emotion we all have need of, yet many allow troubling circumstances to lead their thoughts into feelings of hopelessness. Paul wrote to the Thessalonians concerning those "who have no hope." Hopelessness and despair can easily take a grip on our emotions can't they? The great hymn writer Isaac Watts provides an interesting description, "Despair tells us that difficulty is insurmountable."

    The "living hope" for the follower of Christ is a result of God's great mercy and the new birth He has given us, grounded in the glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. The apostle Peter wrote these words to encourage believers undergoing various trials and persecution. Some thirty years after Christ's resurrection the church entered a time of horrific persecution during Nero's reign. It was shortly after this that Peter was martyred for his faith.

    All of us who trust in Christ have this living hope. As we live out our lives we have many of the same problems as others. But our perspective differs based on an empty tomb and the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Our hope is alive and our eternal future awaits us, no matter the present circumstances. Billy Graham characteristically states it so simply, "As a Christian I have hope not just for this life but for Heaven and the life to come."

    Today we need to take hold of our living hope. Don’t lose sight of it. The writer of Hebrews spoke of this hope as "an anchor for the soul, firm and secure." As God's children we have a living hope and an assurance that God will see us through. I encourage you this day to keep the presence of our living hope ever before you! I promise you, in doing so you will be encouraged!

  5. Heard about Megan from her uncle's cousin Raul in California. We are holding a prayer vigil on facebook with many participating in tomorrow's fast. Your faith has been inspiring and with love and support across the globe, you will get through this. "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13.

  6. Megan:

    I saw your story on the news. May God send all of his strongest angels to surround you while you wait for your new heart. I think you are an incredible young woman and your work here is not done. May God richly bless you and your family (he already had) and give you peace as he prepares a new heart for you.

    Hugs to you all. And of course sending up prayers to heaven.
