Prayer for All God's Little Lambs
Today my heart is heavy over so many hurting children and their families. If you look around, you can see so many little children and babies that are battling cancer, heart problems, birth defects and other physical ailments. My mind just can’t comprehend what it must be like for the parents and grandparents and families of those precious children.
We have read of many women that are carrying babies that have already been diagnosed with physical disorder, diseases, deformities and other life threatening issues and these little ones haven’t even been born into this world yet. As a mother and grandmother, I can’t imagine being faced with these things. I can’t imagine waking every morning and the reality of these things hitting them square in the face.
Things that are beyond our control. Things that aren’t fixable in the human realm. Things that only God can reach down and touch.
Today – please say a prayer for these.
Parents and family of Josiah Herring – 4 year old with glioma brain tumor – went to be with Jesus this morning.
April Rose and her mother “B”
Avery Grace Akeman – 4 year old with many blood/GI issues
Bentley – having heart surgery today
Nikki & little Johanna who is still in the womb
Noah – 5 months old shaken by care giver - recovering
Nathan – infant that had heart surgery
Stellan – still experiencing episodes of SVT
Aidan - 1 year old - suffered fall from 3rd story
I know there are many others. If there is one that I need to add to this page, please feel free to email me or leave me a comment and I can update.
Josiah’s dad ended his update with this yesterday when the doctors told him that his precious little boy would not come out of his coma.
“Standing atop Mount Moriah I am facing a sacrifice that I do not want to make. I look to the thicket and it is empty”
Through tears and a hurting heart,
