Pray like you believe!

Pin It
People often say, If I saw a miracle I would believe. But the bible says, unless you believe, you will not see miracles.

Tomorrow morning at 7am, Our friend Teresa will come off of ECMO and receive a Berlin Heart. Her Pulmonary Hypertension needs to be low enough. Her bleeding needs to be under control. Her lungs need to be clear. 

Do you believe in miracles? 

Remember this??

Then will you please pray with me. At the time you read this and every hour on the hour after?

For God to continue His miracles in her. For her family to be at ease. For God to breath life in to her little body and give her mama more time to hold her baby and tell her how much she loves her. For her sisters and brothers to be able to hear her laugh again. For her daddy to be able look his little girl in the eyes and tell her he will move earth for her today and forever! 

Remember when the doctors in Boston told us that Ivy had a 20% chance of surviving her surgery in October? And how they told us that there is no rhyme or reason that a child in her condition with that right coronary artery sewn closed should have been able to come off ECMO? But she did. Not by luck. Not by science. Nothing changed. She came off by the grace of God. 

Miracles still happen. 

We just pass them off as coincidence, luck, and science now. But miracle it was. 

And we are expecting the same for Teresa tomorrow. 

We moms with the bond of adoption share a very special place in each others hearts. And these moms with broken heart kiddos... we carry such burden for each other. My heart has ached for this mama so terribly the past 2 weeks. And for Teresa. Because I have walked in these shoes. And I know the pain. And it all comes back in such a painful way. And realizing that our daughter could very well be in these shoes again.  Doesn't make it easier.

You all came out of ever country, every city, every state around the world and you stormed the gates of heaven on Ivy's behalf! 

Teresa's mommy has asked me to call out for help from all of you here.

Rally the troops, gather together AND PRAY! 

If you already follow them and I know many of you are already praying, my prayer tonight is that all of the energy that has been put in to stalking facebook and blogs for updates and news of any kind, is stopped and replaced with prayer. Put your focus on deep, intentional prayer. Never mind what time it is. Never mind if you have not heard any news in a while, if several hours have gone by and there is no word. 
EXPECT a MIRACLE and pray like you BELIEVE!
From the depth of my soul,
Thank you!!
