Prayers & Help

Does it seem like somedays prayers are needed more than others?  Today has been one of those days. . .

I should have posted this earlier but as many of you may know this was very close to home for me - Layla Grace - this sweet little girl earned her Angel Wings on March 9, 2010 after battling Stage 2 Neuroblastoma.  Please pray for her family as they learn each day anew without their little girl.  Holding your child while they take their last breath is amazing and something that should never happen.  I can remember nothing else about the day that my little Aiden died except holding him and those last 2 breaths.  Knowing my angel is in God's arms now is the only thing that gets me through some days.  Someone once told me that no matter how many times you have experienced holidays, shopping, everyday tasks, they will all be firsts again and it is so true. 

One of my blog friends is needing prayers, Nic has had a rash and burning sensations as well as purple feet and elevated pulse.  She needs prayers for healing and getting diagnosis/treatment.

Another blog friend, Southern Inspiration's friend Mary has fought breast cancer and recently had a stroke and is having multiple seizures.

Stephanie and Steven who lost their baby before they got to know her - Carried Through Grief

I know I am missing several others that need prayers, please let me know so that I can update this list. 

NOW - HELP IS NEEDED FOR A VERY SPECIAL LITTLE BOY

Evan is a very little boy who needs "cosmetic" surgery (as the insurance companies call it) to restore his ears.  His mother's insurance will not pay for the surgery because they say it is not necessary but cosmetic.  How can they do that to anyone?!  Please read the newspaper article about little Evan and his mother, Angela, who is Advocate and Voice.  She is also working with Cedars-Sinai to receive any available discounts on Evan's procedure, estimated to cost more than $80,000 and they are having to pay for it out of their pockets so anything you can offer them is greatly appreciated.

I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me.
Isaiah 45:5

Wow, I just sat and prayed for everyone one of them. God will bring everyone through the hard times, I trust he will.

If you don't mind I could use some prayers. I am currently battling late stage lyme disease and my symptoms are really bad right now and I am in a lot of physical pain. You can read more here http://mylymediary.blogspot.com or on my regular blog. Take care and I am praying.

It does seem like there is SO much going on right now. I attended Layla's Celebration of Life memorial service this morning and it was oh, so much harder than I anticipated, but I am still glad i went. I cannot believe the insurance considers that cosmetic surgery! Do they have a paypal account where people can donate? thanks for letting us know :)

Wow, thank you for sharing. I will be praying for these people as well as for Casey. I've never lost a child, so I can't say that I come even remotely close to understanding that kind of pain, but having been through some trials with our girl's health definitely makes my heart a bit heavier than it was before.

Our God is a good God who loves us so, that I do know to be true.

Prayers for you guys as well :).
