~Prayers Needed~

Here is my cousin's three adorable children, Tyler in the middle who is almost 3. And, Gracie on the left and Paxton on the right, twins who are 7 months old. Gracie had to phase I of II phases of heart surgery about 6-8 weeks ago. First, I want to add that she's doing fantastic from her recent heart surgery. The doctor told her Mommy and Daddy they would notice her growing overnight and sure enough she has. Isn't she beautiful? Well, aren't they all beautiful? I know Clint and Brooke, as well as the rest of their family are so thankful for the "3 blessings" God has entrusted them with.

Recently when Clint and Brooke took Paxton and Gracie to their pediatrician for a checkup, the pediatrician was a bit concerned about the size of Gracie's head. Gracie's pediatrician and cardiologist have discussed this and have decided to perform a routine CT scan to make sure everything from her recent heart surgery is working as it should.

With that being said, Gracie acts and looks like a normal beautiful 7-month-old baby girl should. It is also Brooke's feelings that all of her children have larger heads (They take after their Daddy who has a larger head). She has put her faith and trust in God.

I would ask you to join me, as I join Clint, Brooke and their extended family in praying for normal results on the CT scan. Pray for peace for Clint and Brooke, as well as their extended family. They have been through so much in the last year.

Our family has posted many prayer requests for Gracie on my sister, Jan's blog. So, please add Ms. Gracie to your prayers. I know Clint, Brooke, and their family would be very thankful if you prayed for this little blessing of theirs, as would I.

The CT is scheduled for today at 2:00 p.m. With the new machine at Children's the scan will only take 2 minutes. When the results are in, I will be sure to let you know, so you can praise God along with all of us.

MARK 11:24 NKJ "Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. Jesus says we must believe we receive our answer WHEN we pray,not wait until we see it. But no one can believe they receive without evidence. God's written Word is our evidence."

1 JOHN 5:14-15 NKJ "Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. Bible-based prayer that works is not getting God to do something, but receiving by faith from God based on what He has already said and done.In other words, we do not need to change God's mind or get Himto do something. We just need to enter in by faith to receive what God has already decided and provided. So, find Scripture that promises what you need or want, then take that to God in prayer and believe you receive it when you pray.!"
