Urgent Prayer Need

Please pray for Ana. Last year, it was discovered that she had a malignant brain tumor. In the course of removing this tumor, she suffered a stroke that left her very sick and incapacitated in many ways. She spent a good part of last year in the hospital. When her family was finally able to bring her home, she started making good progress in her recovery. Even started being able to feed herself finger foods again. Recently, she developed a severe case of RSV (the bronchial infection so harmful and dangerous to babies and those with compromised immune systems). The news is not good, in the doctors' eyes. They have told the family that this little 4 or 5 year-old girl may have only 2-3 months to live. You can read more of her backstory here.

Our church family is standing against that dire prognosis and asking God, begging really, for complete healing. They have a great, solid church family standing behind them and our church has decided to partner with them in prayer and support for this family. This precious family has attended our various children's events over the years, so many in our church are familiar with them. And they also attend the same elementary school as my children, so The Gang has yet another connection with them. And I can tell you, the school community is watching the church minister to them and seeing His love shown strong.

Won't you please join our community, from where ever you are, and stand in the promises that Jesus wants to show Himself strong and mighty in this little girl's body? That He is passionate about seeing her walk in strength, healing and wholeness again? Our church is right in the middle of a season of prayer and fasting, and we believe that adding her & her family to our corporate prayer focus is completely in line with His will for us and the calling we have to our community. Please, consider joining us in lifting Ana to the throne of The Most High God!
