Prayer Request for A Tiny Baby (Update in post #12850)
Myself | 8-11-03 | Brad's Gramma

Posted on 08/11/2003 12:57:30 PM PDT by Bradís Gramma

If you will, please remember this tiny baby in your prayers. He’s the grandson of a very dear friend of mine. Logan was born on July 25. His due date was in October, making his mommy 26 weeks along, being born 3 months and 3 days early.

Logan was 1 lb 9.4 oz when he was born and is now weighing, as of this morning, 1 lb. 8.3 oz. The little guy is now 12-1/2” long.

He’s a real trooper and is fighting with all his little body can fight with. His Grandma said that he’s starting to recognize his mommy when she comes in the room and hears her voice. She said he tries so hard to open his eyes, and starts kicking his feet.

I asked my friend if there were any specific prayers, other than the obvious…and this is her reply…” A prayer of thanks for the miracle called "Logan.”

On a personal note, I’ve read the emails daily from my friend. I’ve known her for years, I’ve heard her talking about her family for years…but I’ve got to tell you that I’m SO impressed with how her children have all banded together in support. What an incredibly wonderful and loving family.

Father God, we lift up Logan’s little body to you. We pray that you can strengthen him hourly, daily, weekly, until he’s grown enough to go home with his precious family. We ask for guidance for the doctors and nurses who are caring for him. We ask for strength for his parents and extended family. Thank you so much for the gift of life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Fellow Freepers…….I bring you Logan!!!

Thanks for the congratulations. Saw my daughter on Sunday (for her baby shower. The guys weren't invited of course, but we did some crib assembly instead. :)

She's getting pretty big, even though Victoria isn't due for about 6 weeks yet. Victoria is already over twice as big as Logan was when he was born. Everything is pretty fucntional, except her kidneys, which need a little more baking time. Daughter is having frequent sonograms because of having an anomoly in the umbilical cord. Not very common, but usually not a problem either, and doesn't seem to be in this instance.

Uh. Ping-a-ling-again-today-from-me! Lookie what I brought ya! And pleeeeeeese, read the whole thing. I have a mighty big prayer request at the end.

So! Again, THE STAR OF THE SHOW!!!!...The Star of the America!...The Star of the WORLD! It's Looooooooogan!!!























~~~~~~~

From our dear friend, Logan's Nana....."Here's some new pics of the little kid! He's just getting to be too much fun! He now has a sandbox.... but he doesn't get in it. He squats on the outside of it and plays with the sand inside. Why? Who knows! Logan does everything different :)"

And now, for the SERIOUS PART.... TC really needs prayers. Four months ago, he stepped in a hole and jammed his hip/leg. After months of physical therapy, medication, etc., nothing helped and now the pain got so bad he had to leave the rig and head back home. He sees the doctor this Thursday and is going to insist that they put him in the hospital and operate. It seems that a nerve is now involved and there is just no other way to get relief.

We've been around this man and watched him push and go when he was exhausted. He would drive in to see Logan, spend an hour or 2 and drive back...... over a 400 mile trip like he was going to the grocery store. He ran the roads of this state like they were his driveway. But now..... not so. You can see it in his face and hear it in his voice. He is in so much pain that he can't stand to be awake and sleep won't come because of the pain. And after enduring this for over 4 months......something has to be done.

He's been a constant warrior for many of us in need.......and those who were not, but just needed a friend and a good laugh. Please ask everyone to pray for him, to ease his pain and for a speedy and complete recovery from this.

Dear Heavenly Father...you've given us so much with Logan and this whole thread, all of the dear friends that we've become due to one child. Lord, it's TC's turn now. He's hurting, Lord. PLEASE put Your hand on his body and ease his pain. Lord, let the surgery be VERY successful. Lord, PLEASE take away this pain.

We all love him, he's been an incredible friend to all of us...Please heal him.

In Your Holy Name I pray, Amen!

Dear Lord

Our Cowboy is hurting. Please ease his pain and heal his wound. TexasCowboy is one of the best men I know, his heart is pure as gold.

I pray, too, for his daughter Faith whom you have steadfastly made her a miracle.

Hear this prayer Lord for our Cowboy.

In his name.

Amen
