Pastor John Gray is standing in the need of prayer and a miracle. 

The spiritual leader of Relentless Church in Greenville was hospitalized in the critical care unit on Thursday night with life-threatening blood clots in his pulmonary artery as well as his lungs. 

According to a social media post from his wife, Aventer Gray, the Saddle Pulmonary Embolism “burden is so severe and only God is holding it in place.”

Mrs. Gray said that her husband will have to undergo two different surgeries within 24 hours due to the pressure on his heart.

Hello family. My family and I stand in need of a miracle. 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!

THANK YOU TO OUR @relentlessgreenville @relentlessatlanta & our @lakewoodchurch for those that showed up physically literally already and reached out in multiple ways after just the word of mouth! We love you all!

Aside from preaching the word of God, John Gray has made past and recent headlines for allegedly stepping outside of his marriage.

You may recall a couple of years ago, he publicly apologized to Aventer for his “emotional unfaithfulness.”

For better and for worse, through sickness and in health, Aventer Gray has stood by her husband’s side.

Pastor Gray recently celebrated his 49th birthday on June 26.

He took to social media writing:

49 revolutions and even more revelations!
