A Little Something Extra

PLEASE PRAY FOR MICAH

Micah is in intensive care as of yesterday evening. He had a gastrointestinal illness that has turned into an overwhelming infection requiring him to be on a ventilator and very very sick. They were not sure if he would make it through the night, but he did and is doing slightly better this morning.

They have some friends that have helped them out by watching the other two boys last night and today, and Jennie's mom will be there tonight. She had no specific requests except prayer.

Please pray for Micah's body and the healthcare team caring for him, and to sustain Mark and Jennie; they hardly slept and things are still very critical.

Father God, you are the great Physician. I boldly come before you and ask you to lay your healing hands on Micah. Please bless the hands of those who are caring for him. Wrap your comforting arms around Jennie and Mark and all those who love him. In the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, I pray. Amen.

Jennie and Mark...Micah will remain in my prayers. May God bless you all. ~Cathy

Scripture says that when two or more of God's people are gathered together in prayer, our Heavenly Father hears those prayers. There have been so many prayers for little Micah and your entire family. What a symphony of faith! These prayers will continue to surround you and yours at all times.

Precious Lord, please lay your ever healing hands on Micah and guide the Drs, nurses , and other staff that are caring for him during this desperate time. Comfort his parents Jennie and Mark as they live and go through this situation, sustain them and keep their minds clear, and their bodies healthy so they can be there for Micah, each other and their other children. Thank You for hearing and answering our prayers. In your precious name we pray....Amen
