A Special Prayer

We've had many tears here but we are not giving up hope even when doctors say things seem hopeless.

Levi sustained major brain injury during the cardiac arrest and doctors do not believe he will recover.

Our hearts ache, especially for his parents. We all are left wondering just how much grief one family can take in such a short amount of time.

My friend B. sent this beautiful prayer. She gave me permission to share it. Thank you for your blessed, blessed prayers. We especially ask you to lift up Levi's parents.

Prayer For Levi

"Father God, You are our source. Our ever present help. You love us. We know this. We worship You, Father, in all circumstances.

God, our hearts are broken with this news. God, we cry out on Levi's behalf. Restore him, Lord. You are able. Nothing is impossible for You. It is NOT a hopeless situation.

Father, give Levi's parents wisdom. They have so many decisions in front of them. Surround them with heart safe friends. Give them unity and times of quiet where they can hear Your voice.

We pray that the doctors would be given wisdom. We pray that they would be full of compassion and gentle words. We pray that Levi will be given the very best of care and attention.

God, You are the great physician. You can restore this little boy. This is our heart's cry and we ask it in Jesus Name. Amen."
