In anticipation of Michael Schumacher's recovery from coma, BBC Journalist Jennie Gow has collected and compiled all the messages of the racing champion's fans and posted them on her Web site.
Ferrari Formula One driver Michael Schumacher of Germany celebrates after taking the pole position at the end of the qualifying session for the Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix at the Sakhir racetrack in Manama in this March 11, 2006 file picture.
Gow did not reveal what influenced her to start such initiative but she was grateful for the people who participated and got in touch with her.
"Thank you to everyone who got in touch to send a message to Michael Schumacher and his family," Gow wrote. "We, as ever, hope and pray that we have some good news soon."
Most messages came from the UK, while there were some who came all the way from Turkey, South Africa, India, France, Philippines, U.S., and Ireland among several other nations. The messages were heartwarming and they were what Schumacher's family, friends, and colleague need at this point in time.
One wrote: "Michael, we are all praying every day, for you, your family, and your speedy recovery soon. God, you and only you can do the miracle that this family needs. Touch this man as he needs to be touched. In your precious name, I ask these things. Please keep this family strong and let them see a miracle with his recovery soon."
"I used to take my wife & son Michael (named after you) to dinner whenever you won. They are hungry. Win this one."
"Come on CHAMP, please pull off your greatest win, FORZA MICHAEL."
The messages will truly touch anyone's heart and send chills down the spine. Read more of the messages here.
Gow is an English radio and television presenter. She covered the MotoGP motorcycle racing in 2010.
Schumacher's fans and the general public have not been given updates on the seven-time world champions' condition since manager Sabine Kehm revealed that he was having moments of consciousness and awakening.
British professor Peter Hutchinson has expressed his personal observation on Schumacher's current condition, saying that the racing legend will "return to a world he doesn't know."
Schumacher got into a skiing accident on Dec. 29 in the French Alps. He suffered brain trauma and was put in a medically-induced coma. The waking up process reportedly began in January, but there still has been no significant changes on Schumacher's condition.
