Urgent prayer request!

UPDATE:  this is from Rita on her facebook and her blog:

The accident happened around 9 a.m. Mike had been raku firing and was back in the house. Later when he heard crackling noises, he looked in the garage. There was a fire started which could have been put out, but the the fire extinguisher pin would not budge. In no time the fire spread. Three fire departments responded and did good work. The house is a total loss, but we've already rescued some important items, such as the blue prints. We plan to rebuild. Love, prayers and provision are pouring in. The news spread almost as fast as the fire. We feel God's presence. THANK YOU ALL. We hope to sleep well and be out of the hospital tomorrow and set to work.

 
Please be praying for my friend and fellow blogger/P365er Rita Koch.  

She and her husband, Mike lost half of their house to a house fire last night and Mike is in the hospital with burns and smoke inhalation.

Father, thank you for taking care of and protecting Rita and Mike last night.  
I ask that you be with the doctors right now as they attend to Mike's burns.   Give them wisdom and tender hands. 
Help them feel your presence, intimately.
Help them know how very much they are loved, not only by You but by all those who know them.
Comfort them, Lord, in the way only You can.

Oh, dear Sara, I will pray for them right now, and my husband will join in praying with me until we hear that things are better for them. Thanks for sharing the opportunity to lift them up, because thought I don't know them, we are all in His family together.
