354/365

Lucy 354/365

Today I am thankful for my healthy baby girls and every moment that I get to spend watching them live their happy little lives to the fullest. I have a prayer request and because I truly believe in the power of prayer, I would appreciate you taking a moment to pray for the child I am about to tell you about. One of the moms in the Bible study that I participate in has 2 month old twins. I do not know this woman at all - it is a big group and I am new to it this past semester and she has been gone most of the semester taking care of her new babies. On Wednesday night, the twins started stirring so they got up to warm the bottles. When they went in, the boy (they are boy/girl twins) was limp and not breathing. They performed CPR and were rushed to the hospital, where they have been since that night. When they performed a test to assess his brain activity, the first test came back showing no activity. But another test was performed a few days later and they got conflicting information. Apparently (and I know nothing about this), it is very difficult to get an accurate reading on a 10 week olds brain activity. So my prayer request is that this family can get some sort of definite information and then be able to come to peace with the given information. I also ask that you pray for the strength of the mom and dad and their two other children - the girl twin and they have a 3 year old daughter. Please pray that they all remain healthy because they are getting almost no sleep and it is just that time of year. Please also pray for the strength of all of their family members that are stepping in and doing everything that they can for this family. This family has an incredible faith in God, and your prayers would be greatly appreciated.

I can't imagine what they are going through, but they are being showered with love, support, and prayer.

So sad. I will definitely pray for this poor family. I can't even imagine what they must be going through right now. Praying for a miracle...praying for healing...praying for strength.

I'll be praying as well. I just can't imagine going thru something like this and the least that I can do is pray!

my heart goes out as I know my girls would be devastated without one another, twins are tied together in a special way.

You missed me because we were at church! Wonderful, wonderful Christmas service.

I will be joining the hundreds of others saying prayers for this family. I cannot imagine, so we will have to trust God so much. Please keep us posted.

Sure can't wait to see all the grand kids! Get some rest. Love and kisses, LeeLee

We can only pray very hard that God provides this family and their love ones plenty of strength, and faith to deal with this stressfull ordeal situation, and feverishly hope for the positive outcome.
