His wife, Aventer Gray, took to Instagram to let us know that John went to the hospital for a checkup and was immediately admitted with a pulmonary embolism.

A saddle pulmonary embolism (SPE) is a rare type of acute pulmonary embolism (PE) that can lead to sudden hemodynamic collapse and death. A saddle PE occurs when a large blood clot becomes stuck in the main pulmonary artery.

In most cases, a blockage can occur when a blood clot breaks off and travels to your lungs from large veins in your legs or other parts of your body. A PE can also be caused by a tumor, fat or air getting into the lungs, Healthline reports.

His wife asks for prayers because Pastor John Gray is in a serious situation. Aventer said the location of the pastor’s PE saddle is life-threatening if he moves. She explains that he needs two types of surgery due to the pressure on his heart in the next 24 hours.

I need as many people who believe in the miraculous healing power of Jesus Christ to join me, my family and our church as we cry out in the name of John W. Gray III.

Doctors have warned her that other people have died in her exact condition and sadly Pastor Gray has to sit still and simple tasks like going to the toilet are off limits. However, Aventer maintains her faith in God that he will restore her husband to health.

We can report that Pastor John Gray is alert and has delivered a message from his hospital bed to his church, as shared on @LarryReidLive.

“I want you to believe in God with me and my wife for a complete and total healing,” the pastor said. “I can’t move, I can’t scream but you can, I need you to chase God right now like it’s me.”

The couple have two children together, a daughter named Theory Aspyn-Sky Gray and a son named John W. Gray IV. Pastor John Gray recently celebrated his 49th birthday on June 26.

We wish Pastor John Gray a speedy recovery!
