Once again I'm requesting prayer for Luke, he is sick again and needs a touch from God

Once again I come before you asking for prayer for Luke. Saturday morning he woke up with a fever and high heart rate and earlier that morning he was alarming for extra oxygen. He has been doing so excellent that I mentioned to someone yesterday we went from needing 12 tanks of oxygen during his last sickness, two weeks ago to only one tank the past 10 days. His numbers have been unbelievable, in fact his heart rate was alarming for being too low. All that is in the past, tonight he is really struggling, all day long his nose has been running and he has been having some unbelievable hard coughs. I keep praying that he has not caught that nasty flu bug that has been traveling around.

Amy and Natalie flew to Romania on Thursday afternoon, they will be there until the 16th, then they will be picked up in Amsterdam by my brother and his wife to spend two weeks with them in Denmark, they won't get home until April 1st. Please be praying for them to stay healthy and that God will bless their trip many great memories. I'm so happy they are able to go, I just wish I could be with them. Needless to say without them here I've been praying that God would keep Luke and the rest of us healthy, they are such wonderful helpers when Luke gets sick, I can't imagine going through a lengthy sickness without their help. I have been blessed with my sister Lori coming over to stay with us for the next week and others that have volunteered to help.

The scripture the Lord gave me the day before they left is so comforting to me, The Lord gives strength to his people, The Lord blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11, I know that I have been ministered to by this scripture in the past and am once again relying on God's strength to get me through this month. I have been singing a little song that I learned from one of the children's tapes we used to listen to all the time. It goes: I can do all things, all things, all things, I can do all things, through Christ who strengthens me, Phillipians 4:13. I'm so thankful that God's word brings me such comfort and help in my time of need.

Love in Christ,
Luke's Mommy Sue

I have been following Lukes story since the beginning but have not checked in recently. I am glad I did tonight, so I can pray for Luke in his sickness. My 7 month old and I just went through this cough and it was so hard. I pray Lord Jesus that You will put your precious hand on Luke right now and take this sickness away from his body...heal him and please Lord, give mom strength and courage and extra wisdom and health to get through this season without her older children to help through out the day. Thank you Lord...for you are faithful even when we are not. Take Care, Julie

Sorry Sue... I am going to pray that Luke is well again very soon. I feel the need to rebuke those germs from his precious little body. I think I've told you I was raised in the Church of Christ... which is very conservative. Anyway, since Izzy's accident I have had a faith lesson and it has been amazing! I am constantly rebuking the devil from our lives and you know what? He obeys! God has given us authority over satan. I also will pray for your girls safety. I know having helpers here how hard it is when they aren't around :) so maybe a prayer for extra strength for you too...
You are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Blessings~
Annie

We keep praying for Luke (& your family).....believing God for miracles.....remember Gladys at our church? A real prayer warrior.....she and a host of others are praying....."the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous avails much." Isn't it comforting to know that God hears and answers prayer.....what would we do without Him? We love you all very much...."hi" to Aunt Lori. Hope to see you soon!
Love, Auntie & Uncle
