Praise Report: Megachurch Pastor Robert Morris Released From the Hospital

by | Apr 16, 2018 | Health

Gateway Church pastor and founder Robert Morris was released from the hospital late Sunday night, one week since an air ambulance rushed him to the medical center for emergency surgery.

Morris underwent multiple surgeries to remove a blood clot and stop internal bleeding from a surgery April 2 to remove multiple hernias.

Gateway Church, a Spirit-filled congregation in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, immediately launched prayer campaigns with campus intercession, as well as online sign-ups for hourly prayer slots.

Debbie Morris, Morris’ wife, kept the world updated through social media. Here are some of her posts:

Praise Be To God! I love that we could attend church even from the hospital. Here’s the scoop: @psrobertmorris is getting out of the hospital tomorrow! While my heart is gushing with gratitude, allow me to gush on. ////Our family. Our kids have stepped up, lead, served, prayed, preached, ran errands and given me breaks. All of our extended family went the extra mile when needed. ////All the ministering angels dressed as doctors, paramedics, and nurses. They were apart of saving his life. ////Our church family and the entire body of Christ. You have been so truly amazing. We have felt so loved. Your prayers have been so important—they mattered. ////Our elders. They have cared for us so beautifully while caring for Gateway with extraordinary care. I can’t tell you how comforting it is to have Pastor Jimmy Evans to step in for a while to allow Robert to recover. We will prayerfully move out of hospital tomorrow but @psrobertmorris has a road to full recovery that they tell us could take months. We are so grateful to be out of great danger but please keep praying for @psrobertmorris. #gettingout #gratefulbeyondwords

Update::: Praise God! The last surgery has been a success. @psrobertmorris vitals are remaining strong. Bleeding has stopped. As you can imagine, he has a great deal of pain/discomfort. Prayer points: pain levels decrease, no infection, restful sleep. They tell me that 250,000 people have agreed to pray for @psrobertmorris in 45 countries. YOUR PRAYERS MATTER::: On Sunday when we were waiting for the helicopter to arrive @psrobertmorris realizing he was in serious trouble asked me to post on social media because he believes in the power of prayer. To give some context the paramedics had just told us they could not find a pulse and his blood pressure was too low to read. We were hours from a major hospital. We knew he was steps from heaven’s door. Neither of us knew what to expect from social media. We have been blown away by your care, your prayers and your love. In this instance God mobilized an army using social media. We knew our battle was bigger than we could fight on our own. While heaven seems much farther away, and the crisis has been de-elevated we still needs your prayers. We have some real hurdles to overcome. Tears of gratefulness stream down my face as write. Thank you for storming the throne. I can’t say ‘thank you’ strong enough. Your prayers mattered.
