The last few days I have been pondering writing about prayer. I knew today I was going to post it but not sure what to write, so I kinda put it off. I can’t put it off any longer. Just an hour ago I got a text….Beau has an infection and is need of URGENT PRAYER, it’s VERY serious. As Christians we carry our faith knowing no matter how big the mountain seems, God has this. No matter how big the infection, God has this. No matter how big the hurt….yes, God has this too. As a mom my heart just aches. I think it’s easy to say every mom out there would gladly take the place of their child in pain. I would take Beau’s place. I adore that little boy and would take away the pain if i could. But we can’t so we pray. We trust in God , the almighty healer to come and heal his little body. We pray for a miracle that stuns doctors and nurses alike….make those who have “seen it all”, see something that is nothing short of a miracle from God. Even little Beau knows this is what we do, his spirit knows. His first words to his dad were, “Dad, I’m strong but dad, will you pray with me?” That is what we are trained to do as Christians,, call on God automatically. That’s just what Beau did. So now I ask you, that you might pray for Beau, prayers for complete healing. While we don’t know the details at this point, that’s ok because our Heavenly Father knows his needs. He knows what to heal. Prayer might be out of your comfort zone, just talk to God like you would a friend. Speak your heart, let him hear your needs and your worries.
Psalm 102:1-3 :Lord, hear my prayer! Listen to my plea! Don’t turn away from me in my time of distress. Bend down to listen, and answer me quickly when I call to you.
Whenever I ask what we can do the whole family says just pray. From day one, just over a week ago. Just pray. In fact it was the first text I got from Ang, “Please pray and call my mom.” So please , honor my friend’s request and give them what they need most. We pray for complete healing of Beau’s body and soul, healing and strength for the entire family. We pray for a miracle in this time of incredible need oh God. Hear our prayers and come lay your healing hand on Beau.
So grab your kids, your friends sit down and pray. The family thanks you.
