Prayer Request - Edna Mae

Dear Friends, Family, Followers and Prayer Worriers....

I know I have been neglectful of my blog over the last few weeks, and I apologize. As the summer starts to come to an end, schedules get back in place and my days open up again, I am sure to resume back to blogging on a regular basis again. Bare with me.

With that being said, I would like to ask that you please take a moment and pray for this little girl and family that attends my church. I do not know this family personally, but I have several dear and close friends of mine that do. A few of my friends are teachers at the church school, in which this family attended and the mom very active as well. They are a faithful Godly family and are in so much pain and fear right now.

Their little 18 month old daughter, the youngest of three girls, was found Monday evening laying in her pool having gotten through the child safety gate. When medics arrived they were not able to resuscitate her. Having lost heart function and kidney function, but then was able to gain both of them back at the hospital.

Over the last couple of days the family thought they had hope, when it appeared there was some brain function (little, but some) taking place. The most recent scan however, shows that there is less and very, very little function taking place.

At this time the doctors have given up hope, and so this family only have prayer and a miracle left in their hands for their youngest baby girl. I can't even imagine being a parent and hearing those words or reading them as I sit here and type. Its a very painful reality to this precious family and they desperately need your love and prayer.

I know people continue to want updates, but they are being very cautious with the info they want to share at this time, and I am sure as any parent would be, we all understand. So please, instead of constantly asking for updates, just know that GOD knows the update and continue to pray. I will also do my best to fill you in either here, or through my Twitter updates to the left of my blog if you are not a Twitter follower.

Attached are a couple of photos and I really appreciate you taking the time to pray.

And while I am here, please forgive me for missing the last couple of weeks HWW (His Will Wednesday). I really apologize for that. There is one person that I will leave anonymous at her request, and ask that you just pray for her. Again, God knows her needs, and I just ask that you pray for this sister of ours.

I hope that you and your families are well. I am browsing the blogs here and there trying to keep up with all of you also, but if I missed anything or anyone I apologize.

God Bless.

Edna Mae - 18th Months

Came over from Facebook when I saw you had posted. As I read the update I reached out me hand, touched that sweet baby girl on my computer screen, and asked our Lord Jesus to perform a miracle in her little life. I trust that He will. I cannot imagine the pain of her family. I simply cannot imagine. My God give them strength.
