A Prayer

It is my hour to pray for Stellan. While I have been continuously asking the Lord for favor on his behalf, I have chosen this hour in the prayer vigil to focus all thoughts and prayers towards this little one and his family. To talk with God and cry out to Him.

I immediately thought of a favorite scripture I have loved since learning it in junior high.

Psalm 17:6-9

6 I call on you, O God, for you will answer me;
give ear to me and hear my prayer.

7 Show the wonder of Your great love,
You who save by Your right hand
those who take refuge in You from their foes.

8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
hide me in the shadow of Your wings

9 from the wicked who assail me,
from my mortal enemies who surround me.

Lord Jesus, I feel so broken over this little one struggling for his life. As I sit here there is nothing more I can do aside from pray. In all situations I know this is the strongest weapon I have. I know You can defy all medical chances and realities. With one touch, one sweep You alone can heal Stellan’s body. Father, I ask for this little one’s life. I ask for steady hands and clear minds for the doctors and nurses. Comfort Jennifer as she rocks her baby boy- give her a peace that passes all understanding. Come, Lord Jesus, come. Please grant Your favor.

Psalm 77
13 Your ways, O God, are holy.
What god is so great as our God?

14 You are the God who performs miracles;
you display your power among the peoples.

There is NO ONE like OUR God- not on earth or in heaven. I struggle to fully understand Your sovereignty and its power, but I know nothing can be done to take away from Your namesake. For that I ask for glory and honor be brought to Your name through Stellan and his family.

12 I will meditate on all Your works
and consider all Your mighty deeds.

Mighty are Your works. Mighty is the strength You give us on a daily basis. Mighty is the power You have to work miracles- even ones we don’t see. Mighty is Your plan. Mighty is Your name.

Sweet Jesus, please give strength to Stellan’s body. Please bring his heart into a normal, steady rhythm. We all love this little miracle boy and want to see others come to You through his story, no matter the outcome. Wrap your arms of love around Jennifer and this little boy You created, know, and love. Hide them in the shadow of Your wings.

Nothing is impossible! We are trusting. We are beseeching You. We love you. You are our Healer and all we have. I believe this tonight.

Bring Your glory, bring Your comfort, bring peace and healing, I pray. There is nowhere to turn but to You.

In Jesus’ sweet healing name....

Stellan WILL live- here or in heaven.

Found you through MckMama, of course. And that was a beautiful post. My heart aches so much for Stellan and Jennifer and the rest of the family. I have been on my face crying out to God more than I have in a long time. He will be glorified no matter what.
