Margaret Romph

margaret-romphOn Friday evening, one of my youth girls, Erin, was involved in a car accident – along with her grandma and her little sister, Margaret. Erin broke her hand in the wreck and her grandma has some bruising from the seatbelt and I’m sure both are quite sore today from the impact. Along with these physical injuries, they are hurting emotionally. Margaret, who is just 5 years old, is in very critical condition.

She was life-flighted from the wreck and suffered brain trauma, a broken neck, two broken femurs, and serious lung issues. Friday night and today have been very long days and they did not give the family much hope. But we have seen small but miraculous progress today. Margaret is still in critical condition and there are many things unknown. But she is still with us and she is a fighter and has ten-times more spunk than most of us. She is the little angel with the tilted halo, the pink cowboy boots, and the mischievious grin that you live to see.

You can read updates about her progress here.

Please pray:

  • For little Margaret and her healing.
  • For Erin as she deals with the accident.
  • For the Romph family for strength, peace, and wisdom hour by hour.
  • For the staff at University Hospital as they care for Margaret.

May God be glorified in and through all things.

  2. Our prayer is that God will guide the doctors, nurses, and all who are around this precious little girl – His hand to theirs. We pray that her family be comforted in His will and that she will come home healed soon.

    We recently experienced a miracle healing of our own and know that God still works miracles every day. For inspiration you can read about it at the link to ‘Ev’s Story’ on our website

    It is a glory story that we hope inspires her family and friends to keep the hope alive!

    My prayers will continue because I KNOW God hears! 🙂

  3. Not sure how I messed up that link… but for those who would like to read the story of God’s miraculous healing to inspire hope and prayers you can go to and click on Ev’s Story.
