We need your prayers



Please pray for baby Ella

Baby Ella was born on April 8th and came into this world weighing only 1 lb. 13 oz. and 13" long. She was born to our dear friends Greg & Amy. She wasn't due untill July so she is very premature.  She has suffered a stroke and has long road ahead of  her.  Please pray for her tiny body to be strengthened. My heart is so heavy as I write this but I do believe in the power of prayer and that the Lord is in control. But as a mom, I dont know if I could walk the road my dear friends are on. Please pray for their strength also as they just don't know what to expect and they are emotionally and physically exhausted.

With gratitude,

I am so sorry this has happened to your friends and their sweet girl. Just keep up hopes high, because they can do so much medically nowadays! All my kids were premies, the first born was only 2 lb -3 oz (990 grams) and that was 22 years ago! She was in hospital almost 3 months and now she just finished two years of army service as a sergeant in the Navy! I will keep your friends and their babygirl in my thoughts and prayers and sending a big hug!

Please tell your friends about my miracle born almost 18 years ago. She was 6 oz heavier & in her 3 mon in hospital, there were a few set backs and dangerous times. I told God if he gave me her life (her twin sister died), I'd give Him mine. And the deal held true.

My Libby is a healthy young girl now. I know God can do it. I'll be praying for baby Elle. Tell your friends just to keep praying and praising and thanking God for her life!

My thoughts and prayers are with your friends. Our friends went through that years ago and it was a very long road. Today their son is doing really well.

Prayer and positive thinking works wonders. My preemie twin boys are living proof. They will be 2 next month, and by looking at them, you'd never know they were just 2 pounds at birth. Todays medical technology is amazing. Hang in there! The best day of your life will be walking out of the hospital with your little bundle! Hugs to you! Amber
