I have a special thing I wish to share today… not about news, but life – and I trust you find it worthy.
It's come to my attention that there is a child, at a tender age, who is gravely ill and in hospital.
While there are always needs, and worthwhile things/cases to pray for, this one struck me today.
I do not know the child or the family personally, but perhaps it is the fact that I am a parent, or simply a Christian, that I feel it would be good to share the need with you all.
The doctors, for whom we are all grateful, aren't sure what the child has in terms of illness – but it is serious enough that the child has been receiving two intravenous interventions of anti-biotics, one for the suspicion of a tick bite, and the another for possible bacterial meningitis.
The child is very weak and sick.
So from this land of the Bible, I know there is a family that would appreciate prayer.
The latest is that the patient did take a noticeable step toward health.
Instead of just laying with eyes closed, the child was looking at their parents occasionally and responding.
Although the doctors still don't know what was or is the problem, they seem confident from blood test indicators that each day now the young life should progress.
He isn't eating or drinking yet but we can pray for God's intervention, mercy, strength, and yes – appetite and thirst to return.
Ultimately, life and death are in the power of the Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who raised Jesus from the dead… but I wished to share this with you all today.
Thank you for turning to Him on behalf of this precious life.
