Luke is progressing very well as the Dr said, "as well as could be hoped for". Luke has opened his eyes many times for brief moments 5-10 seconds and he is becoming more and more awake. He is developing some fluids in his lungs and we need to pray that it does not become Pneumonia. They want him to rest tonight and hope that in the morning they will be able to remove the breathing machine and allow him to become even more awake. They are controlling him with sedatives.

Thank you for the prayers and I hope to publish a pic or two tonight or tomorrow.

The entire ALAG family continues to trust for this great miracle. If Lazarus was dead four days... If Jairus' daughter's funeral was in progress... If Jesus was in the grave three days... "By His stripes we are healed"

Hi, I don't know if you remember me from church in Orting but I remember you guys and what an awesome family you have. My name is Jenni (Nash) Burns, I just heard about your little boy tonight and it hit me really hard as I have a 17 month old little boy named Aidan (and we too are expecting again, a boy in October).

My husband Chris and Aidan and I will be praying for complete recovery of this little man of God-God's plan is not complete in his life-we will believe with you for absolute restoration.

When I look at my little man I will think of your Luke and will be praying for him continually. God bless you all during this time, may His presence and his peace be with you always.

Thank you for this website, what an awesome way to help so many loved ones to be able to pinpoint prayer for your son! If you need any help with uploading pictures or any other blog related questions,we would love to help, just email us from our website.

My dear friends! I just received the news and am rejoicing that God is working so mightily! I'm spreading the word out here in Shelton and we'll get more people in the Throne Room on behalf of Luke and your family.

Heavenly Father, I call on You right now in the name of Jesus. It is through your power that Luke was created. Every breath he takes, every morning he wakes, and every moment of every hour, Luke lives under your power. Father, I ask you now to touch Luke with that same power. For if you created us from nothing, you can certainly recreate us. Fill Luke with the healing power of Your Spirit. Cast out anything that should not abide in Luke. Mend what is broken, drain excess fluid and restore Luke to the wholeness as he was created by you Father. Let the warmth of Your healing love pass through Luke's body to make new any unhealthy areas, so that his body will function the way You created it to function. And Father, restore Luke to full health in mind, body, and spirit so that he may serve you the rest of my life. I ask this in the name above every other name (Philippians 2:9) Jesus Christ and through His blood.

Amen

Luke and family, we are praying for you! In the mighty name of Jesus, be healed! Jeff Dennis & family

Hi there,

You don't know me, but I'm a friend of a friend. I just want to encourage you to keep praying and keep the hope alive. This very thing happened to my youngest brother. He wandered out of the house and into the family pool. He ended up hitting his head and sank to the bottom of the pool. I was so young that I didn't really know what was going on, but the ambulance arrived and he was rushed to the hospital. God had his hand on him that day for sure because the odds would say he's not going to make it. He must have been down there for several minutes. I'll be praying for your son and for your family in this most difficult time. Hopefully we'll see a miracle happen that will not only save your son's life, but will also lead others to Christ. Keep praying and staying positive. It's in God's hands.

Gordon --

I just received news of this tragedy here in NC thanks to Craig H. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. I have called in the reserves -- my country cousins who can get Luke's name on the prayer lists in every church in three counties. Please give hugs to each and every member of your family from me and my clan out here in the boonies, most especially you and your wife.

Gordy,

We are here for you brother. Our family is in prayer for Luke and for your family. When we got the call, Johnathon, Christina, and I were together and we stopped our activities and prayed. Like you, while I was praying I felt this great peace come about me as God was telling me everything was going to be alright. I am not surprized by the miracles God is doing with Luke, what is awesome, is seeing how this is working for Gods glory. Bringing people around the world to unite in prayer. I know that there are those that are unsaved that are hearing what is going on and the seeds are being planted to bring them to Christ. Seeing you and your familys faith holding fast, that is awesome and a true reflection of Gods power and love. Luke will be fine, he is in the hands of our creator. Your family will be stronger, and the testimony that comes out of this will bring many to Christ. Keep up the faith, our prayers wont stop, and our love for you and your family is stronger than ever. I love you Gordy! Please pass on our love to Sue and the rest of your family.

God be with you, and continue to bless you,
Bob Hart and family

Dear Luke's Dad and family,
All of us here at FamilyLife ministries are praying for all of you, especially for Little Luke. Would love to see a picture of this precious angel in the future. But just know that God and we are with you.

You don't know me I am a friend of a friend of yours.
I will pray for your son and have my friends and family pray for him too.

Our God is the healer of the world and I believe he is with your son and He will continue to send people like Jim into your lives.

And when your son recovers all glory will be given to our Father in Heaven.

God Bless you and your family.

I am a co-worker of Marge Ray...
...she came rushing past my 'cubicle' yesterday, commanding, "Carole, come with me now!"...to a conference room, where she shut the door and briefly explained the urgency. "...wherever two or more are gathered..." We lifted up your little boy to GOD and we are believing for full recovery.
Thank you for the opportunity to share in the miracles that have happened and those that will come, one by one.
There is no life without the LORD...who has breathed the life back into Luke.
GOD bless you and your family as you wait on HIM.

"Pray for the sick and they shall recover" Lord, right now we just lift Luke up to you. We claim this promise. We ask that by Thursday morning Luke has started not just one cough but whatever that is needed to get the fluid out. That his eyes will open and focus. Father, we trust you and claim your promises on this little one. We pray for the full recover and give you all the glory. In Jesus name, AMEN
