Prayers for My Son----***UPDATE ADDED***

Dear friends,

I need prayer for my son, Christian (4 1/2 years old), I think he might be coming down with a rare disease (non-infectious) he once had in the past. He is showing all the symptoms and we were warned it could reoccur before he turned five. We are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. When it had first occurred, he was only a few months old and it was a horribly scary journey for our entire family as we didn't know what it was and then later finding out that this disease could affect his heart permanently. Friends, I need your prayers for his protection, a return to health and because I need His strength today to be a strong mama (I am feeling pretty weak right now) for him. Please pray the doctors would have wisdom.


(Christian, pictured above, when he was younger)

Thank you all so much from the deepest depths of this mother's heart.

I will keep you all updated. 

***UPDATE: We are back from the doctor and Christian has been diagnosed with strep throat. Praise God it was not more serious! Apparently, strep can have some of the exact same symptoms of his disease. We are keeping a close eye on him to make sure nothing else develops. We thank you ALL so much for all your support, kind words and prayers. They meant so much to us and helped encourage us get through it all. The Lord is so good and merciful. ***

{{Dear June}}

I'm so sorry to read this post but will add you both to my prayer list; I wasn't even going to check blogs this morning but the Lord laid it on my heart to check yours this morning. Isn't it wonderful the way the Lord leads us step by step?!? I am praying He will lead you all step by step through this new journey.

Dear Julie,

So wonderful to hear from you! If you are able to let your church know to pray for him I would deeply appreciate it. They all prayed for him the last time and Pastor Wesco always wanted to know how Christian was doing. Your church has been a blessing to us in so many ways and we hope to visit again very soon.

Many blessings...

" 'Yet hear now, O Jacob My servant, and Isreal whom I have chosen. Thus says the Lord who made you and formed you from the womb, who will help you: 'Fear not, O Jacob My servant; And you, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring; They will spring up among grass like willows by the watercourses.' One will say, 'I am the Lord's; another will call himself by the name of Jacob; another will write with his hand, 'The Lord's' and name himself by the name of Israel. 'Thus says the Lord, the King of Isreal, And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; Beside Me there is no God. And who can proclaim as I do? Then let him decare it and set it in order for Me, since I appointed the ancient people. And the things that are coming and shall come, let them show these to them. Do not fear, nor be afraid; have I not told you from that time, and declared it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed there is no other Rock; I know not one.'"
(Isaiah 44:1-8)

Praying for you and your family, June, and adding you to our family prayer list.

Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses. He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth. The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net. Psalm 25:12-15

Dear June Bug,

Your message made me weep. It is with great respect that we lift up your son in prayer.

What a comfort that we can go to Him at any time with our concerns. He will strengthen you friend and help your weariness.

jules1green said...

Wow... that's exactly what our family went through with our first child, and we found out he had Kawasakis' disease. He was just barely 2 months old, and it sure freaked us out. By the grace of God his ecg came back clean, with no residual symptoms/issues. What a time of trusting God in all things and of His provisions for us:) May you have the peace that passes understanding as you walk through this with your son. Praying for you.

SO HAPPY to see the update! I am happy is was not something serious, but still feel bad for the little guy. I will pray he gets better soon ! We're all here for you June, just like you're here for us with your wonderful posts. You are an encouragement to my heart. God bless.

Praise the Lord for this new news. I will pray that he recovers quickly, strep is better than what it could have been, but still tough on Mommy, Daddy and son. Persevere dear sister!

Ann at eightacresofeden said...

Just read your update June - I was praying today so thank you precious Jesus. Now praying that the strep throat also goes away.
As a child, my husband was a very sick baby afflicted with many disorders including one disease they said could recur and cause heart damage. He spent a lot of time in hospital and actually died on four occasions but was brought back - for a purpose I truly believe. He never suffered any heart damage and as a young man at 18 was miraculously saved - the first Christian in his family for many generations.

Lilly said...

Mrs. June We will be praying for your little boy,and the family. You have been a wonderful encourager to me and my family.I dont know you personally,but I thank the Lord for bringing you into my life. The Lord will listen to the prayers of his servants. God Bless!!!!

I am happy to read it was "just" strep. My son was diagnosed with Legg-Calve-perthes disease a few months ago. I undertand what a Momma's heart goes through when our wee ones are ill and there isn't anything we can do it change or really help. God Bless you and your family.
