I usually don't write anything sad or depressing on this blog, but sometimes there is such a need for prayer that I have to ask you to join me.
Noah is a precious 5 month old little boy who was shaken by his daycare provider. He is in the hospital and in the intensive care unit. His parents, Mike and Erin, are trying to stay positive in the midst of this horrific tragedy.
Here is the comment that I left for them on their website. I share this so that we can claim these verses for little Noah.
I am completely and totally in awe of your strength in the midst of this storm! I have a 3 month old, and I had tears in my eyes reading about your beyond-painful ordeal. I must admit that my first human reaction is extreme anger that this had to happen to Noah. However, as a Believer, I know that God works all things together for good to those who love Him (Romans 8:28). He is Great Physician, and he is hiding little Noah in the shadow of His wings while you wait (Psalm 91). There is a tender verse in the Bible that I have for you:
“When the Lord saw her[them], his heart overflowed with compassion. ‘Don’t cry!’ he said.” Luke 7:13 NLT
Know that His heart is overflowing with compassion for you and for Noah. He will wipe away the tears from your faces (Isaiah 25:8). I am claiming these verses for you and that Noah will be anointed with His healing power.
Will you claim these verses with me for Noah? I don't share this story to depress you; and from reading their blog, I know that's not what Mike and Erin want. But they are asking for as many prayers as possible, and as Christians, we are called to lift people, especially precious, innocent children, up in prayer to the Lord. I urge you to pray for this family and for this precious little life. God is faithful and He knows what the future holds!
