Prayers Requested - Updated

My brother, Mike, was in a serious motorcycle accident early this morning. I figured the quickest way to send more prayers his direction is to inform my blogging friends.

Please pray for him (as well as for my mom and his new fiancee, Lisa).

I am certain prayers will help.

----------------
This is the info my mom shared on Facebook today:

Lauri Benson: To all of my FB friends...thank you so much for your prayers in our behalf. I KNOW there is great power in prayer. Michael is in ICU in the Utah Valley Medical Center. He has had a neuro surgery this morning to place a monitor on his brain. Obviously that is his most serious injury. The doctors say that the next three days are critical.

He also has broken bones in his leg, broken ribs, and broken bones in his face which will need surgery. We are praying for miracles. I am flying up this afternoon. For those of you who don't know...Michael is engaged and has a wedding date set for May 1.
