Luke needs a touch from God once again!

I would like to ask all of you that believe in the power of prayer to once again pray for Luke. He has been sick now for the past month. I took him into his Pediatrition on last Thursday and he put him on Amoxillion for what he thought perhaps was a sinus infection. He has been having a lot of secretions for weeks and they just don't seem to go away. He also began to throw up daily about 2 weeks ago, he has not done this since they did his Fundoplication surgery, in October so it alarmed me. I called his Gastronologist and it was decided that he needed to be on something stronger than Zantac, they decided to put him on Provenset. We thought perhaps he was getting better until Saturday night when he began to take a turn for the worse. I was so excited on Friday night since he did not have to have any oxygen all night for the first time in 3 weeks, then on Saturday night as mentioned he had to go back onto oxygen and even more than before.

I would also like to ask for prayer for Amy as she leaves for Romania for a week on Monday morning. We are all excited about her opportunity to go and minister to the children at this women's conference they are putting on to encourage the women there. Please be praying for her safety on the plane and while she is there, that God will use her mightily as she ministers to the children and that we at home will have peace as she is gone. We are awed by the generosity of those that decided to support Amy financially, not only was she able to pay for her way, but was also able to pay for 22 women in Romania to attend the confrence and help two other women on the team go, God is so generous!

I know I mentioned in my last post about some different ones that need our prayers. I can't even begin to describe how heavy my heart has been for this precious family in Kansas, whose son Brett Jr. drowned in the bathtub, I have been crying out to God for His mighty touch for Brett Jr.'s brain, body and breathing to be healed. We continue to pray for Joanna, that did find out that she has a rare cancer and for her precious family as they have so many decisions to make and for comfort for them as they go through this difficult journey. Also for little Candace Joy who has been in the ICU for 3 weeks as they continue to do surgeries to try to stop the horrible infection that has been ravaging her body.

I will try to post again more often to keep you all up to date on Luke and these different prayer requests, thank you for your patience as I know I've not been very faithful in keeping you up to date. Once again I can not even begin to stress how much prayer Luke needs at this time, I don't want him to end up in the Hospital again. I'm extremely weary from getting up each night for weeks now and would ask for prayers for myself for my strength and joy to be renewed. Thank you once again for your faithful prayers, they are what carries us through these hard times.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

Lord, we come before you now with Luke on our hearts. Father we know that You are in control of his life and his healing. We ask that You touch his body and that the secretions and vomiting cease. We claim victory in Your name Father over his sickness and over any doubt that the family feels. Lord, we also ask that you give Sue the ability to rest and for her joy to be restored. We praise you in advance for Your touch. In Your Son's precious name, Amen.

Dear Dear Sue - I am so sorry for this long, weary, rocky road you have had to travel. My heart goes out to you. How I wish I lived close to you, to be able to lend you a hand or have my older daughters help so you can rest peacefully. My heart aches with you. It's hard to understand why we have to endure some of these hardships, but I know some day we will say together "it will be worth it all when we see Jesus - one glimpse of His dear face - all sorrow will erase." We have to continue to fight the battle. My heart and prayers go out to you. Write to me anytime.

Love, Loni

Sue,
I have noticed during this journey that things seem to get bad right before we turn a corner. I am praying today that Luke will turn a corner towards his complete healing. May God be with you and give you strength.

We prayed for Luke at breakfast this morning, and will continue to pray that he receives God's healing touch. May God also bless Amy's travels and give her safety.

We're also praying for your sweet little Joanna, Lockwood family. Have you considered setting up a blog for her so you can keep us all updated?
God bless!

Dear Sue, I am sorry it has taken me so long to comment. OUR Wes has been in the hospital. It started a week ago tomorrow.. the throwing up/diarrehea... he soon was very dehydrated. He was admitted on Monday and we came home on Thursday (2nd). I am just getting around to checking on emails, Luke and the prayer requests. He is still not feeling great, yesterday was a rough day. Today a little better. The diagnoses... ROTO-VIRUS. This is our 2nd child to have this and it is such a nasty bug. Our other child Dakota had it at 4 yrs old and still today suffers with stomach problems. UGH. Wes is 2 1/2 and he was so pitiful. So dehydrated... high fever. I am sorry I haven't checked in. I pray for Luke and we talk about Luke. Even in the hospital I had my pictures and I had last years... pic in there of your family. Wes and I went through all your family.. naming the names and when we came to Luke I would say who is that and he would say "Wuke" ...

lifting you up~
YOUR Georgia friends~
Billy, Teena, Michael, Mandi, Dakota, Alyssa, Wyatt & Wesley
