Sunny Side of The Stream: Pastor Was Declared Dead, But He’s Still Fighting for His Life

By Aliya Kuykendall Published on September 10, 2022

Happy Weekend!

A pastor’s wife and children are believing God for a miracle after they realized Ryan Marlow is not dead as they had been told. A nurse initially called and told Meghan Marlow that her husband had passed, but then Megan got a call back. They said he was actually just brain dead. But when the family came to visit, they saw his feet moving. At that point the hospital was planning to donate his organs after the family had time to say goodbye. Now Meghan is believing for a miracle.

‘God Can Do Miracles’: Wife of Pastor Doctors Said Was Dead Gets Astonishing Phone Call While in Mourning, Asks Public For Prayer

Megan posted to Facebook that Ryan had a surgery on Tuesday to give him a feeding tube and trach tube for breathing. That day he moved parts of his body:

Ryan has had some big movements today as well. He pulled his knees together, moved both feet and hands, moved his right shoulder almost like he was trying to move his whole arm. I watched his muscle flex all the way down his arm to his fingers. He has also had eye movements under his lids. Thank you Lord for the glimmers of hope!

Praise God that Ryan is still alive, his wife is believing for him, and the hospital staff are working to save his life. Let’s join Meghan in hoping and praying for Ryan’s recovery. As she said, “God can do miracles.”

Mom, Krys, shared in a later video that she’s had eight pregnancies and these two children are her only babies who made it to full term. She also said her older daughter had wanted a younger sister.

Praise God for the beauty of family, even amid great heartache. That little baby is so wanted and loved.
