Have you prayed?

I know some of you have noticed the sidebar pic of Kate McRae. This is a sweet little six year old that should be playing with her dolls and going to school and playing in the park with her seven-year-old sister Olivia and four-year-old brother Will.  Instead she is in the hospital receiving chemotherapy in preparation for a stem cell transplant. Her road has not been easy. Her trail filled with doctors, nurses, hospital walls, sickness.

Please join me in praying for Kate. In praying for Kate's family.

And in praying for her protection from this brain tumor. That it will be gone forever. That the nausea and vomiting will be minimal, if at all. That her kidneys will be protected.  That she will show no signs of liver disease. Please pray that God put a wall of protection all around Kate and her precious family.

Today  Kate starts a new chemo drug. So strong that she will have to shower every six hours. Even at night. Change her bedding, clothes...everything. Her mama will have to wear gloves when she touches her sweet girl. And this goes on until Tuesday. 

Kate's mama Holly is a wonderful person. Very bright, warm, and she understands the power of prayer. Join us won't you? I've seen the power of prayer in our lives. In Christopher's life. Because of all of you. My wonderful friends. That I have grown to love.

If you click on Kate's picture it will take you to her CaringBridge site. There you can receive updates or just read about a little girl that needs her life to be normal again.

Please friends, lift Kate up to our heavenly father.

Thank you!

  22. Dear Lord, please heal not just Kate but all children who face this most grown-up, most awful problem. Please give the families peace as they struggle to be caretakers and struggle to accept Your will.

    In the name of Your son Jesus
