Precious, faith-filled community, will you join me in prayer once again?
My heart breaks for this precious baby boy named Truman and his mama who is pregnant. He and his family are in need of prayer. Truman, who I believe is around 13 months old, had a near drowning accident after falling headlong into a bucket of dirty water.
He has 6 other siblings and there is one more on the way.
You can read all the updates on his mama’s blog.
My cry to God…
There is a world, a hurting world I desire to touch for you. Hungry little bodies that I want to have a part in feeding. Lost souls that I want to have a part in bringing the gospel to. Wounded, sick, bruised and beaten that I want a part in bringing Your healing to. Yet, here I kneel, contrite over how I lacked love today, because surely I acted in a manner not worthy of my call.
Here I pray, and then I receive a message about this baby boy Truman, and suddenly my cares seem so unimportant and my worries so frivolous. I am sobered, awakened, reminded of the broken world You came to save and how truly blessed I am. This hurting world is far reaching from my small world I become a prisoner of — bound by its cares, blind to Yours. Untangle me Lord — so I can run. Free me of these weights so I can carry the burden of Your heart. Your burden is for the broken. You were broken for our brokenness.
I pray that you would heal baby Truman and make him whole. I pray for the family — his parents and his siblings, that you would give them peace and strength during this time filled with so many challenges. I pray that You would heal broken hearts and show up strong on behalf of this family that is Yours. I pray for this mama, who is pregnant, that you would lavish Your love and pour Your grace like rain upon her.
This is the confidence I have in coming before You — if I ask anything according to Your will, You hear me. And if I know You hear me in whatever I ask, then I know that I have the requests which I have asked from You. |1John 5:14|
You have also told me, and I believe You — if even just two of us agree here on earth concerning anything we ask, Your Father in Heaven will do it. |Matthew 18:19|
Today, once again, I offer this place as platform to share of an urgent need to pray for one of Yours. I pray to you, Jesus, that you would take the message of this baby boy in need of a miracle to your faith-filled pray-ers. Raise up intercessors to cry to You on Truman’s behalf.
You suffered the things we should have suffered.
You took on Yourself the pain that should have been ours.
You were punished to make us whole again.
By Your wounds You have healed us.
Your Spirit knows our condition,
and keeps us present before You, God.
That’s why we can be so sure that
every detail in our lives of love for You, God,
is worked into something good.
Romans 8:26-28 MSG
You are the God who heals.
We cry to You in our trouble, and Lord, You save us.
You send out Your word and You heal us – You rescue us
Let us give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love
and His wonderful deeds for mankind.
