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!!!

Heavenly Father, we rejoice again at the good news of Logan's progress and how happy he is to be in his mother's arms. Lord, we long for the day when he can be placed in his own crib, in his own home, and his mom and dad can just stand and marvel at their beautiful son. Hinder all that would cause this to be otherwise, dear Lord ... for they love him so.

Thank You, Father, for baby Logan's new website and the labor of love by TC and Nana. How touching to see Logan so content against his Dad ~ nurture their special bond, I pray ... may Logan dream this night of the boy things yet to be ~ cars and trucks and baseball bats ~ and through it all, his puppy stands guard.

You are most gracious, Heavenly Father, to have given so much joy to so many ... bless his caregivers this night, for their mission has been extraordinary. Reward them, I pray, with a healthy, happy Logan ... in the name of Jesus, Amen ...

Oh MY...MY MY MY!
I cannot believe the updates, the pictures... all of it.
I don't even know what to say.
Their just aren't words to express what I am feeling tonight looking at the pictures and reading all of the posts.
 
It is a truly amazing thing, this life, this Logan that we have been given to watch grow on the OUTSIDE.
 
Makes me grow a little more on the INSIDE every day!
 
We are so blessed.. so very blessed to be part of this.
 
I thank you all for giving me the opportunity to watch a real, live miracle happening.
Sometimes miracles happen, and you don't notice until they are over.
This one just looks me in the eye each day and says, "See what God can do?  Do you see? Are you paying attention?".
 
Dear Lord,  I am paying attention... I am tearfully, joyfully thankful and grateful to YOU for your awesome power.  To create this baby so wonderfully made and then to nourish him and heal him over and over for us all to see...Well God..I'm just thankful..that's... and oh, so very humbled by it all! I pray that you will continue to remind me each day of what an amazing thing it is that I am watching..I appreciate it Lord. 
I pray for this baby that has so touched my heart..I know you hear me every day and I am thankful. 
Praise to you Lord.
Amen.
 
God Blessem' ALL!

Well, Cowboy, I just showed Gramps the web site you put together....he's MORE than impressed. Indeed, the growth of our child is incredible to watch when it's put together the way you did.

Thanks again!

As you know, I don't use this ping list very often, but I hope you will share this miracle of life that Texas Cowboy has helped document. It truly is awesome. It is graphic intensive. The music, incredible. Please enjoy it.
