Prayer vigil for woman hospitalized for 37 days

KINGWOOD, Texas – A community joined hands in prayer Tuesday, in the parking lot of a hospital, to hold vigil for a woman who has battled COVID-19 for over a month.

Sandy Summers was admitted into HCA Houston Healthcare Kingwood Hospital on Dec. 18. For 37 days, Summers’ husband, Sarge, has prayed outside her hospital window.

“I pray for my wife to walk out of this hospital and come back home. I call her baby doll. She’s my baby doll,” Sarge Summers said.

Prayer is paramount to the Summers family.

Sarge Summers has kept thousands abreast with his wife’s journey through social media. His efforts have created a virtual prayer circle -- people from around the country writing him with prayers of recovery and sympathy.

“I think it’s important to my family,” Summers said.

The couple, married nearly 50 years, has three children, eight grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.

“I think it’s important to our friends. I think it’s important to others who are going through the same thing. They need to know that God is still on the throne and they need to know that God still heals,” Sarge Summers continued.
