My baby is in Your hands, Lord.

As I finish packing up all the kids and ready ourselves to head out early tomorrow morning, I ask all prayer warriors to please, again, lift up our sweet boy to the Heavens and unify in prayer with us as his surgery approaches on Friday morning. If all goes well, we should be home on Sunday evening. I will try and post whenever possible, since we are taking the laptop for Kai to watch movies on. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all for your prayers and immense support. May God bless you all abundantly.

Heavenly Father,

I come to you today with a grateful heart that you are our redeemer. Our precious Kai was created perfectly by you and you alone love him like no one on earth ever could. He is your masterpiece. I humbly ask Lord, that you being the great healer, the miracle creator who raised Lazarus from the dead, who parted the seas, who turned water to wine, who fed thousands by multiplying a few loaves of bread and fish, to please guide the surgeon's hands on Friday and allow Kai's surgery to be a complete success.

As you healed the woman who touched your cloak, may your hands heal my little boy's palate so that he could speak clearly and be understood. Lord, may he be able to praise your name out loud for all to understand. May his recovery be quick and as painless as possible, without any complications.

Lord Jesus, you are our hope and our promise and you know that whatever the outcome, we desire your will to be done and continue to give you all the glory and honor that you are so worthy of. We walk by faith and trust your holy name and divine generosity that all will be well. We ask that you sustain us by your grace that our strength and courage may not fail.

We pray that your Blessed Mother be by our baby's side and ask her to protect Kai and wrap him in her mantle.

Sweet Mary, please cradle our little boy in your arms as you once cradled the baby Jesus. We plead that you lift our prayers up to your precious son and implore on our behalf a complete healing of his palate and all that is impeading him from speaking properly.

We ask this, as we do all things, in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


“Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them. So the multitude marveled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel” (Matthew 15: 30-31).
