11/30/09 – UPDATE: We are thrilled to report that Marty is doing much better! He is conscious, breathing on his own, and, Patsy tells us, “He grows stronger each day!” We appreciate all your prayers.

11/20/09 – From Patsy: Marty sat in a chair today for over 2 hours and he ate ice chips & popsicles. YES!

11/19/09 – From Patsy: Today (11/19) Marty works on regaining full use of arms, hands, & legs. Also swallow test. And he gets to sit in a chair! Yes!

11/16/09 – UPDATE: Day 20 in ICU. Please pray the sinus infection that is complicating Marty’s breathing will respond to antibiotic, it is a resistant strain.

11/5/09: Women of Faith Speaker Patsy Clairmont’s 44-year-old son, Marty, has been hospitalized with double pneumonia. He is on a ventilator and in a medically-induced coma. The latest word is that he is showing some small signs of improvement, but is still in extremely serious condition. We appreciate your prayers on behalf of Marty and the entire Clairmont family.

    Dearest Patsy & Family, I was at the WOF in Oklahoma City when we were told about Marty. Upon arriving back home you and Marty were put on my church prayer list and daily prayer group. I know there are lots of people praying for yall. Praise be to GOD for hearing everyones prayers GOD-IS-GOOD! I am so glad to hear he is doing so much better! You will always be in my heart and prayers, you are such an inspiration to me with your faith and trust in the Lord. I am going through a situation with my 43 year old son who is in kidney failure and being put on dialosis , he also is facing two more surgeries to try and save his foot, so maybe you and the WOF staff could pray for us. As a mom you know how it is no matter how old they are they are still your child. Thank you for Patsy for being the strong person you are and encouraging so many women in such a special way, until we meet again my love to you!

    Praise God. I'm thankful for the prayers lifted for Patsy's son. She is an inspiration to us. Saw her at Greensboro, NC and heart went out to her and her family. Even though she was going through this tragedy, she was still the most inspirational speaker. Thank you for being there on Friday.

    When we count on Jesus…….ALL things are possibe! He will NEVER leave us or forsake us!!! Patsy thank you for sharing a sliver of your pain with us during your Ft. Lauderdale visit…remember it is A Grand New Day!!! My little girl (12) has had 5 brain surgeries, so I can definately relate to being the Mom that just can't make it all better with a kiss and a chocolate chip cookie :) We are currently adopting a little girl from Russia and she is already pulling at my heart strings…and I haven't even met her. I think those letters MOM…were really supposed to be WOW! Bless you all!!!!

    Patsy, To God alone be the Glory, to God alone be the Praise! All things are possible in HIM! He is faithful and True. I’d like to take this opportunity to request prayer for my very good friend, Donna Granger who had lung cancer surgery on September 9, 2009 and is still in the ICU. She has started recovering, had gotten pnuemonia, began recovering, got pnuemonia again, lung collapsed, now has Acute Repirtory Disorder, and just on Saturday, November 28th, she started having problems with her heart and kidneys, and she is now sedated on the respirator. The Doctors said they have seen people pull through this but they didn’t think she would pull through. Can I please ask for pray for Donna, her husband Don and daughters, Jamie & Kristina who are all very broken. They need the LORD to hold them and gird them up……..this has been a long hard journey, and I know that GOD still works Miracles “With GOD ‘ALL’ things are possible”…thank you so much everyone and may the LORD bless each of you in great and mighty ways that you know not of!

    Here it is WAAAY past my bedtime and I am just reeling from you WOF presentation in Ft. Lauderdale!!!Patsy,

    Way to go girls (and guys)!! What a fabulous testimony to the power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives.

    My thoughts & prayers are with you and your family as you continue to be at Marty’s side during his recovery.

    My husband, Cliff, was diagnosed with Choroidal Melanoma in August so we have been on perverbeal roller coaster ride since then. What do people do if they don’t have faith in GOD????!!! I don’t know how we would survive!

    Thank you for sharing your faith and helping the rest of us be brave and know that whatever happens Gods will may be done.

    With Love & Appreciation,
    Sandy Steffen

    P.S. Please continue to share your “Good News”. My friend Carol Ripley is coming to next years WOF and I pray you will be at our Ft, Lauderdale stop. She NEEDS to hear and experience YOU!! ( :

    Patsy and family,
    Words escape me… what can someone say or what would I want to hear at such a time.
    The God of all of creation is with Marty, you and your family! He loves and cares for you all! I think the knowledge of that would be what would bring me the most comfort in such a difficult/scary/fearful time. No matter how old our children get, they are always our babies.
    Lord, we know you are the God of all comfort and the great physician and we pray tonight that you will supply Marty and his entire family with each of their needs. Thank you for being such a great God! Amen.

    Patsy:

    God is steadfast and Faithful. Been through this same scenario 5 years ago with my son. On a vent for 6 weeks. Had MRSA in his blood stream and collapsed lung. God was faithful every step of the way and He took care of my son. It is not easy. Hardest journey of my life to this day but God provided every step of the way and He spared my son. A MIRACLE. I am praying for that same miracle for your son. I was told one day from a missionary that had come all the way from Africa to pray like the woman going before the judge. God is holding your son so close right now. I pray for peace for you in this storm Patsy. A peace that passes all understanding. God is faithful and more powerful then anything. What I learned was He does it in His time. Father God, I pray today that you will provide for Patsy and her son what they need for the day and that each day you will continue to provide exactly what they need for the day and may Patsy’s son be healed. Thank you Father God for loving us and always taking care of us. We know this is the case with the Clairmonts. In Jesus precious name. Amen

    Praying for your son, Patsy. One of my dearest friends who is involved in our quilt ministry where we make quilts for cancer patients was in an accident this weekend with a semi. She has recently finished chemo for breast cancer, and has been a paraplegic for 25 years. She is in the hospital with legs broken in more places than I know. All this to say that, in spite of what things look like, our God is NOT surprised at what happens in this world, and HE is still in charge. I don’t understand Linda’s accident, and I don’t understand Marty’s illness or the other things you have had to deal with in your life, but I do know that God IS LOVE, and that He has promised that “all things work together for good…..” Praying, Patsy, praying, for Marty, for LInda, for so many who are struggling. And trusting Abba.

Praying that God gets you through this valley with you and your son stronger in Him!

    Patsy, You and I have a lot in common. First, we have the same father (heavenly father) and I know our father always meets us in our times of need. Second we both have a 44 year old son. We are also under 5 feet tall but as the saying goes ALL good things come in small packages. My prayers are that our father will put his loving arms around you and give you extra strength at this time of your life and that your son will be restored to a complete healing of his body. May GOD receive the glory and honor even during this situation.

    Patsy,
    I heard your son was in ICU, and being a nurse myself, I knew the seriousness of his condition, and didn’t expect you to be in Greensboro this weekend. This was my first WOF, and it seemed God planned it just for me. Every speaker was used by God to speak to my heart and give me hope and encouragement for some trials in my life right now. I pray for your son’s recovery, and I admire your faith, that you take God at His WORD, that He will deliver you, and you remained faithful and came to the conference when we all knew you wanted to be by your son’s side. Thank you, Patsy, I needed to hear what you shared. God Bless you and your family!

I will be praying for all of you that marty will continue to make those steps towards improvement and you will all be able to celebrate God’s love together again. God bless all of you.

  71. Dearest Woman of Faith,
    Remebering the WORD of GOD to the disciples during a terrible storm, “Master do you not care that we perish….” (paraphrasing) May the GOD that holds together the universe and all things in the palm of HIS hand speak the same tender words to Marty’s storm,…”Peace be still.” Knowing that in and through every storm, The ANCHOR Holds!. Women of Faithers all across North Carolina “cease not” to pray for Marty, you and the entire Clairmont family.

    We love you and pray for Marty. We missed you in OKC but many sent up prayers for you and family. I’m sure it would just blow your hair back if you knew how many prayers are being sent from all around the globe! Love, “Mrs. G” as the college students called me, but “Clay’s mom” to WoF…

  76. Dear Patsy,
    I was so very blessed by your message tonight in Greensboro, NC. After being told of Marty’s illness, I felt a strong urge to pray for him and then felt a sense of healing, that Marty was being healed even as we were there at the conference, that God was blessing you and your son because of your faithfulness to His Son.
    May God continue to work in and through you. You and your family will remain in my prayers.

    with love and the expectation that God hears and cares about His children.
    Grace-Grace-Grace-His will be done.
    Love from someone who has been there.

    I will be praying for Marty and your family during this time and for the doctors as they work with Marty. I trust you will feel God’s loving arms around you in a special way today. I have been so blessed by you at WOF through many years and appreciate you being so real.

    Love in Christ,

    donna :-) Eph. 3:20

    Patsy, you are my all time favorite and you show your heart each and everytime you get on the stage. Though I do not know the outcome of your son’s illness I know that God’s awesome grace and love will shine through. That is something you have taught me and reminded me each and everytime I go to the WOF conferences. My prayers and thoughts are for you and your family.

    My prayers are with Patsy in this difficult time. It’s enough that you lost your best friend last year, and now have to deal with your son being sick in the hospital. At least we have a strong God to look to for compassion and strength! God bless Patsy! You make the tours and look forward to always seeing you!!
