|"God, please let them take this tube out... I really don't like it, and I know you can help. You helped before, and You can do it again. Amen."|
Speaking of goodness, some of yall have been asking about our friends we asked yall to pray for. Well, the last we heard is that the surgery was a huge success. That Addie started producing urine while she was still in the operating room, that she was off of the vent after 1 day when they expected her to be on for 4 days, and momma is doing well too, dealing with some pain and nausea, but she is in good spirits and praising God for where they are in their journey. Thank you all for praying with us for them.
Again, we proclaim it, we believe it, God answers prayer. Prayer is powerful and effective.
Father, thank you for where we are today. Two months in, Lord and you have been with us every step of the way. Help us to remember where we've come from, what obstacles and mountains you've already carried us through, we don't want to take your mercies for granted, Lord. Thank you. Thank you for the answered prayers, thank you for the "little" miracles, thank you for the reminders that you are with us and you are for us, that you are with Thatcher and holding his right hand. Thank you that we are back on nasal canula, thank you that his G-Tube seems to be working and he seems less irritated, thank you for answering our prayers. God we pray that you would stay present, we need your presence, we desire your presence, thank you for your peace that your presence provides, thank you for the confidence we have in You Lord, that you will never leave nor forsake us. You are good. You are so good. You hear us! You provide for us! You are here for us! God would you be glorified through Thatcher, through us, through our journey. Be lifted high in all the earth. Lord, we lift Thatcher up to You, we ask for healing, complete healing. Lord would you remove the hindrance in his brain and allow it to grow and develop, would you cast out the seizures that torment him, allow his windpipe to strengthen and grow, and help his stomach to handle eating with ease, Lord. We trust you, God. We trust that you are healing him, we know that you are able, and we believe that you will and that you are, thank you. Help us to rest in your will, and in your presence, knowing that it is good and perfect, knowing that you will hold us up, we can have full confidence in that truth. God be praised. To you be all the glory and honor and praise, to you who is able to do abundantly more than we can ask or imagine, Lord. We are asking to be amazed... and You never fail to do so. Thank you for who you are, thank you for what you are doing. We love you, we praise you, and we trust you. It is in the powerful name of Jesus that we pray.
