I join DoomHamster in asking for prayers for Richard Hammond, (known on the show as The Hamster) one of the presenters from the BBC Top Gear car programme.
We all watch Top Gear, and we were very distressed to hear of his extremely serious accident whilst trying to break a land speed record. It is a dangerous thing to do, but it is still dreadful when disaster strikes as it did here.
Mercifully his condition has improved somewhat, and it looks like he will survive. Yesterday the odds were apparently given as 50-50 by the doctors.

Heartfelt prayers for him, his family and his colleagues from the show, who are all naturally very upset.
The Hamster has now been transferred out of Intensive Care to a general ward, where he is making good progress, thanks be to God.
Thank you for your prayers.
He is a much-loved presenter in the UK, and well-wishers have been making substantial donations to the air ambulance fund which transported him from the accident scene to hospital.
