Urgent Prayer Request

I received this e-mail a few days ago from friends of the lady who wrote the paragraph below. Please pray.

It is interesting to have received your e-mail today.  Cedric and I are in Switzerland (his native home) and have been here since mid-June.  We are in the middle of a crisis, and I'd like to request your prayers.  Cedric's grandmother, Alix de Wurstemberger, is 98 years old and, though is suffering from failed eyesight and weak legs, is completely coherent.  It came to our attention last week that his family has set up an assisted suicide plan for Alix (assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland). She has been persuaded that this is the route to die. This is very upsetting to us, and since there are virtually no other believers in his family (he's a convert to the Faith), we are depending on prayer to work this out.  Please, please pray for this situation.
