Luke had more seizures this afternoon

The doctors are trying to switch Luke's anti seizure medication from one to another and this afternoon he had a few seizures. Please pray that God would give the doctors wisdom on how to best manage the seizures. Also, pray that God would heal Luke of these seizures and that he would not need the medication.

I want to make sure you are aware of a treatment called HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy. Here is a link to get you started:

http://cincinnatihyperbarics.com/

I only mention this because my wife and I have spoken to parents with similar situations to yours while taking our daughter for treatments. Our daughter was born with CP but we didn't find out about this treatment until she was 4 years old. She finished her 3rd set of treatments this summer just after she turned 5 and we have seen promising results. While it's not a cure, it helps. I just want to make sure you are armed with all the information. out180@gmail.com if you have further questions. Our family's prayers are with you.

Lord Jesus,
I pray for little Luke that you would calm the seizure activity in his brain and continue your miracle to restore Luke to perfect health. I thank you for the incredible witness the Searles family has been in this tragic situation and I pray you would give them your wonderful peace that passes all that our finite minds can understand. Lord I pray your would continue to strengthen the family and especially Sue as she has another life inside her womb.
And now Lord Jesus we ask that you would be glorified and lifted up as you continue your awesome healing work in Luke's life. Amen

Each time I check on little Luke....(often all day long) as I come to the blog and see that sweet face....most of the time I will look around the room in my own home and see that same sorda smile looking at me and I cry out to the Lord....Please, Lord heal this sweet child of yours. My Bible is full of times when Jesus healed others and I have the faith to know that our God can do the same for Little Luke. I will be praying tonight that the seizures STOP and that he will need no medication. You guys hang in there. I know that you are tired and at times scared. You have so many people praying for you. I am so proud to call you my Sister and Brother in Christ even though I have not even met you. Blessings from NC, Shane, Julie and children

We are also praying for Luke's family, that our Father gives you strength through this. Stay strong, Luke!! May our loving Father cradle you in his love and embrace and bring you to full health once again. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May His face shine upon you. May the Lord lift you up and give you peace.

Precious Father in Heaven, we again come to You on Luke's behalf asking for Your miraculous intervention to restore his life to wholeness. Please give wisdom and direction to the medical staff as they treat him. Please continue to give strength and courage to Luke's family as they wait and watch. Father, I ask for a divine clarity of direction and purpose to come to Gordy and Sue as they face decisions and challenges untold in the days ahead. When emotions and fears crowd in, may Your presence touch them with a word or a song to connect them once again to Your sovereignty.
We acknowledge You as our Sovereign Lord God Almighty, and we seek and ask for Your divine will for Luke's life. We ask of You in our own will, but we bow to Your sovereign ways. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ we pray. Amen

Gordy and family, This will be a process that has to be endured as you have endured the rest. It will be wonderful for you all to be at home. 'Losing' Daniel to school will be odd but you'll adapt.

Hi Luke, Just think you will go home soon. You will be with your family and be back in your space. Today you got a 'Teddy Bear' from Guam. That's way past Hawaii. The other far ones were from London, England. They weren't from the queen though. Lots of people think about you and pray for you. Night night.

Good Morning Lord Jesus,

We love You so much and we praise You for this beautiful day. It's all Yours Lord. We all were created at Your mighty hand. You know everything about us and You know all of our needs. As the doctors are trying to do what is best for Luke, we ask that You give them wisdom in this situation, Lord. Help lil' Luke to be comfortable. Continue to minister to his lil' spirit and help Gordy and Sue to be strong while You restore lil' Luke's body.

We give You all the glory Father for all that You have done and all that You will do! Praise You! Let all the earth praise Your Holy Name!

With the Sweet Love of our Precious Savior,

Shawn, Con-, John, Rebekah, Matthew and Naomi Reeder

I pray every day throughout the day for Luke and your family. This morning on my way into work I heard this song on the radio by Christian guitarist Mark Schultz called "He's my Son" and thought of little Luke, the words touched my heart just like your story. Here are the words to the song ...

Down on my knees again tonight
Hoping this prayer will turn out right
There is a boy that needs your help
Done all that I can do myself
His mother is tired
I’m sure you can understand
Each night as he sleeps
She goes in to hold his hand
And she tries not to cry as the tears fill her eyes
Can you hear me am I getting through tonight?
Can you see him can you make him feel alright?
If you can hear me let me take his place somehow
See he’s not just anyone, he’s my son
Sometimes late at night I watch him sleep
I dream of the boy he’d like to be
I try to be strong and see him through
But God who he needs right now is you
Let him grow old live life without this fear
What would I be living without him here
He’s so tired and he’s scared let him know that You’re there
Can you hear me can you see him please don’t leave him, he’s my son

Hello Searles,

How's it been going today? Hope that all has been well and that Luke is doing better today with his seizures. I would really love to see you all and to give you all a hug, and especially Luke - I want to just give you a hug and hold you close.

Love, Lonnie and Lori

Hey Luke and dear family,
Sorry I haven't stopped in to say "hello, I love You", but have been out of town helping my daughter move. I did stop in at the library in Bainbridge to check on how you were doing and of course continuing to pray to our most loving Father in Heaven. These past few days away from here have left a hole in me. Not just because I haven't been able to come and pray, share and experience with everyone, but because my grand daughter doesn't have a Daddy to hold her and love her. They have become a "single parent family". My prayers have been for you, Luke, and your faithful family, but now I will add some special prayers for Ivori (age 9) that she will be touched by the greatness of our God. So she will lifted up and covered with his mighty love. Ivori is praying for all of you. She knows Jesus very well and is so excited about Him. She is hoping to be able to be Baptized very soon. Luke, she loves your Teddy's! She has one for you for when you come home. And that won't be long my dear little friend. Lord God, I praise Your name for all Your greatness and your mightly love for Luke and his family. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness in doing all you have told us you would do. Thank you Father for Luke. His little self is an image of Your love. Father, I ask you at this time for a special blessing on Luke's new friend Ivori. Touch her with the same love you are pouring out to all of us. Let her know you will be her Daddy, just like Gordy is Luke's Daddy. Take her fears away, God. Cover her with your loving protection. These and any other needs for all, Lord, I ask for in the name of your son, Jesus Christ.

Loving and Praying ......gb in Graham, Washington
