FRIDAY'S PRAYER REQUESTS

Good morning to all of you!
This morning we pray specifically...
*that Witt will digest his milk. I believe he did fine through the night but the milk he was given at 6am was basically still there at 9am. The nurse is going to check with the doctors when they make rounds. I don't think its too alarming, we just need him to continue to "eat!" Aren't we glad that absolutely nothing is alarming and certainly never disarming to God!
*for another sweet baby in the nursery (we don't know its name) but no visitors are allowed in for the next few hours while they do surgery on this baby. (UPDATED- the doctor tell the mom that the little baby's emergency surgery went well! The mom will be able to see the baby in 20 minutes. It was emergency surgery of some kind. It is amazing that they can do surgery right there in NICU when there is not time to move the baby to the surgical area. God's wisdom is incredible!)
*for baby Autumn and family. She is 7 days and is fighting for her life. Her parents are Jessica and Jason and they are very young parents walking on an unbelievable hard path.
*rest for Mel and Austan and all the family.
*and a prayer of thanksgiving that baby Andrew is doing very well. His grandfather, Paul, shared that he has turned the corner to recovery!

All of His little lambs are in my thoughts and prayers as well as their caregivers. For their loving families, I pray for strength, endurance and the ability to turn it all over to the Lord and not try to shoulder it alone. He will carry them through. Praise to the Lord.

Sweet Witt, We don't know you but have heard about you through your aunt Annalee. We are fervently praying and thinking of you in Tennessee!

Love,
The Fox Family

God can and does heal, in his time, according to his will. God is the one who does the healing, but as followers of Christ, we can make known or petitions.

"Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up."
James 5:14-15

God's presence in all trying situations is guaranteed. We are not alone.

"But now, this is what the Lord says - he who created you, he who formed you: 'Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass throgh the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweet over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned . ."
Isaiah 43:1-2

Our all-powerful God gives strength.

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
Psalm 73:26

I pray continuously for you guys!
