Prayers Needed

There are so many hard things in this world. It's hard to understand. This world is thankfully NOT our home and this life is SO short in comparison with where we will spend eternity where there will be NO pain and NO sorrow. I hope that brings comfort if you know Jesus.

I have a lot of hard prayer requests I want to share with you. Sometimes I worry about putting these all on here because it can be overwhelming but I know that prayer is something that is so important and I'd love for you to pray for these:

1. I have followed a little boy named Jonah who is the same age as Harper for the last few years. He has EB which is an awful skin disease. Tonight I was reading about another little boy with the same condition named Tripp. My heart is completely broken for him and his family. Scott and I were both in tears as we tried to imagine the pain this sweet boy has been through and what it must be like to parent him. It's hard to complain about a busy two year after reading this blog. PLEASE lift up this family. They need our prayers.

2. Pray for a family who had 2 kids in a car accident - a 16 year old and an 11 year old. The 11 year old is in a coma with extensive injuries.

3. 10 month old Kate needs a bone marrow transplant. She will not live without one. Her family is also trying to raise awareness on the bone marrow registry.

4. Pray for Sarah - a college student who works with special needs kids. She has a brain tumor.

5. The Berry Family - they were in a car accident the first of this month and both parents were killed. Two young sons were paralyzed and they also have a 6 year old daughter who only had minor injuries. PLEASE pray for these children.

6. This family of 4 children (with a 5th on the way) was visiting North Georgia on July 1 and was rear-ended by a drunk 16 year-old. They lost their 6 year-old daughter. They have two other daughters, 8 and 10, who have broken limbs. Their 3 year-old son has a broken neck and leg, but can move according to the Caring Bridge website.

7. Please pray for Rylynn. She was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and has been one heck of a fighter for the last 2 years. She's turned 2 in May and since then has declined rapidly. Her liver in beginning to fail and they are doing open heart surgery to place a VAD (ventricle assist device) to help her heart function. This may or may not work and if not finding a heart ASAP is their only option.

If you could maybe find one of these and commit to pray for them and maybe even offer them up some encouragement - that would be great! Thank you and God bless each of you!
