Urgent Prayer Request for Katelyn Grace

I wish I had time to go into both the long and short of everything now, but the short of it all will have to do for the present.

After having an EEG (electroencephalogram) a couple of weeks ago, Katelyn Grace was diagnosed with partial seizure disorder, and is having seizures several times a day.

We have several very specific prayer requests:

1.  That the Lord would completely take away Katelyn Grace's seizures, either miraculously or through the doctors we're working with.

2.  That the Lord would give Mom and Dad wisdom as they're making major decisions about Katelyn Grace's medical treatments.

3.  That the Lord would strengthen Mom, especially, as she's struggling with having to watch Katelyn Grace suffer through these seizures.

4.  That the Lord would lead us to the right doctors.

5.  That the Lord would work through the unsaved doctors we're seeing.

6.  That the Lord would grant special wisdom to the Christian doctors who are helping Katleyn Grace.

Please copy this post and post it on your own blog, or just publish a link to this post.  Please share this prayer request with your family, friends, and church.  We are trying to get as many people praying for Katelyn Grace as possible.  

Please, please commit to pray for Katelyn Grace every day.  If you can do this, please let us know by leaving a comment.  Mom would be greatly encouraged to know how many people are praying for Katelyn Grace.

Thank you so much everyone!

Lauren for the whole family

Matthew 18:19 - Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

John 14:13 - And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

As Most of You Have Probably Guessed....

Important bit of news: Alaska is absolutely, positively beautiful!

More important bit of news: We had a wonderful, productive visit with the Zimmerman family.

Most important bit of news: Tait and I are engaged!

We look forward to a life together spent serving the Lord and giving Him the glory for all of the the miraculous ways He has worked.

There are a few old, familiar hymns that particularly stand out to me at this wonderful time.

"Praise God, from whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him, all creatures here below.
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost."

"Great is thy faithfulness, great is thy faithfulness.
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed thy hand hath provided.
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me."

"Praise the Lord, praise the Lord! Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord! Let the people rejoice!
Oh come to the Father through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory,

Great things He hath done!”

More breathtaking pictures, animated stories, and informative updates coming soon!


Tait has also posted an engagement announcement on his blog, Not by Bread Alone.
