In the United States, there are an estimated 100,000 people who are waiting for an organ transplant. Sadly, only about 20% of those people will receive a donated organ in their lifetime. This is because many people die before they can receive a transplant, and others don’t have the time or money to wait for a donor organ. One group that faces a particularly difficult challenge when it comes to finding a donor organ is the family of someone who has died as a result of an accident or illness. For many families, the death of a loved one creates enormous pain and sadness that can last for many years. It is for this reason that some people believe that prayer may be the best way to help those facing difficult circumstances when it comes to receiving an organ donation. In fact, some believe that prayer can create powerful spiritual forces that can lead to the healing of broken hearts and promote the reuniting of families who have been torn apart by tragedy. Whether you are praying for someone you know or strangers facing difficult circumstances, please consider doing so in honor of those who have given their life so that others might have hope and healing.
