Pastor John Gray in Critical Condition
Popular pastor John Gray, who has gained fame on social media in the past few years is hospitalized and in critical condition. His wife Aventer Gray, is asking for a miracle on social media.
“Hello family. My family and I stand in need of a miracle,” posts Aventer Gray on her Instagram. “Please keep my husband @realjohngray in your prayers.”
“After feeling a little different over the past couple weeks, he went to the ER on Thursday evening and was immediately admitted to CCU with A saddle Pulmonary Embolism in the pulmonary artery and more lung blood clots. 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. 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.”
“The Doctor said God has to keep him through the night and he can not move, not even get up to walk to a bathroom. Ok, COOL! Thanks ma’am! God isn’t done! I don’t care what CT, ECHO, All or any of the tests show! It’s clear God isn’t finished. Clots have to bow to my God! That’s all!”
“I need as many people who believe in the miracle healing power Of Jesus Christ to join me and my family and our church as we cry out on behalf of John W. Gray III.”
“I’m rocking with God, Relentlessly!”
Gray was an associate pastor under megachurch pastor Joel Osteen. He and his family moved to Greenville in 2018 to pastor Redemption Church, now known as Relentless Church.
What is Saddle PE?
Saddle PE, the condition that Gray has, is life-threatening and normally needs some kind of emergency treatment. Saddle PEs are rare — they make up only about 2 to 5 percent of all PE cases. A pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blockage in one of the arteries of the lungs. A saddle PE is when a large blood clot gets stuck in the main pulmonary artery.
Pulmonary embolism is the condition that took the life of Thomas Mikal Ford a couple of years ago from the hit comedy “Martin” with Martin Lawrence.
Saddle PE is when a large blood clot (thrombus) gets stuck where the main pulmonary artery branches off into a Y-shape to go into each lung. The name refers to the fact that the clot “saddles” on top of both branch arteries.
