Shaun King took to social media on Sunday morning to solicit prayers for his daughter, Kendi, who is seriously injured after being hit by a car.

In a post on his Instagram page, the activist wrote:

24 of the hardest hours of our lives. ⁣

⁣Our daughter Kendi, who is 19, was hit by a car while she walking in Manhattan and suffered a brain injury. And several serious head and body injuries. I’ve been here in the ICU with her since yesterday morning. ⁣

⁣We have every reason to believe she will recover and she is receiving excellent medical care. The doctors and nurses and staff have been so kind and so thorough. ⁣

⁣Please pray for Kendi. ⁣

That she heals 100%.⁣

That she has no setbacks.⁣

⁣I’m watching her like a hawk.⁣

⁣Please say a special prayer for my dear @MrsRaiKing who has had an incredibly hard time with this. ⁣

⁣Love and appreciate you all.⁣

⁣Shaun & Family
