Long Day

Sweet Isaac is having much difficulty today. He's retaining a TON of fluid & has had very low blood pressure all morning despite being on a large continual dose of epinepherine. His pH is still quite acidotic, though has slowly responded to the temporary relief of bicarbonate. Long story short - Isaac needs to get over this hump & soon. Please intercede on his behalf.

I am praying hard for sweet Isaac.

Lord, please allow Isaac's swelling to go down soon. Help him to get over this hump and on his way to recovery. We know you continue to be faithful and hear our prayers. Though we do not know what your plans are, we do believe you have a perfect purpose for this boy, his family and all who know about them and beyond. I pray this is your Son's most precious and holy name. Amen

We are asking God for specifics on Isaac's behalf today as he needs God's intervention. God is the Great Physician--hang in there as He works to stabilize your baby boy! Because of your blog, we feel like Isaac is a part of our lives too. We continue to pray for you both. You are so faithful---God is so accommodating.

“Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.”- 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

"He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a man, that he should change his mind." 1 Samuel 15:29

"24 For he has not ignored or belittled the suffering of the needy. He has not turned his back on them, but has listened to their cries for help. 25 I will praise you in the great assembly. I will fulfill my vows in the presence of those who worship you. 26 The poor will eat and be satisfied. All who seek the Lord will praise him. Their hearts will rejoice with everlasting joy. 27 The whole earth will acknowledge the Lord and return to him. All the families of the nations will bow down before him. 28 For royal power belongs to the Lord. He rules all the nations. 29 Let the rich of the earth feast and worship. Bow before him, all who are mortal, all whose lives will end as dust. 30 Our children will also serve him. Future generations will hear about the wonders of the Lord. 31 His righteous acts will be told to those not yet born.
They will hear about everything he has done." Psalm 22:24-31

"You have given me your shield of victory. Your right hand supports me; your help has made me great." Psalm 18:35

we thank You, Lord, for although we cannot understand, see or grasp what You do, we know You are in control........

Father,

We ask for your healing power on behalf of little Isaac.

Lord, we just know that it is your will that be done, but we also know that you must have great works in store for this child's future!

Please settle and calm Isaac's ph levels so that he is at a level deemed normal. We also ask, Jesus that you help this child release this fluid that has built up and bring his blood pressure back up to it's correct numbers.

Thank you, Lord for having mercy on us and for loving us unconditionally.

We praise you and give you all the glory!

In Jesus name we pray,
Amen

Lord - we lift this family up to you continually. You're such an awesome God and I know that through You, Everything is Possible. You are in control and we praise You for the way You are watching over everything. I pray that in Your Time, all healing will be shown to us, your servants, through your Grace and Mercy. Thank You, Father, for being with us during this journey as we all call out to you and pray for comfort, peace, and strength. Let there, if it be your will, be sudden positive changes in Baby Isaac for only You can do such miraculous healings. In Your Name I pray. Jordan, Patience - you both are doing wonders serving God. I will continue praying for all 3 of you as this obstacle goes its course. Blessings and peace to you both

I am sitting at my desk and just said a prayer for baby Isaac and your family. He has changed so many people only in 10 weeks. Some people will go a lifetime and never have faith that you or your family have shown us.

Just remember when you can't hold him our Lord is. I know that's where I would want to be.
In God's Love.

Heavenly Father, I know you hear our prayers everyday. We know your ways are beyond our finding out. There is probably more you need to do in our hearts than you need to do in Baby Isaac, and you have chosen this precious family to grow us all. For all who read this blog and want you to answer our prayers, grow us more and more into Your righteousness so that all our prayers will be powerful.

Please hear our prayers today. Bring all his levels back to where they need to be. Help his little body to get rid of ALL the excess fluid and for complete healing to come to his body. We know you can. I believe you will.

Lord Jesus,
I ask on behalf of this child and family that you show your power and be glorified. I ask that you touch every cell of little Isaac's body and cause it to function just the way you created and purposed it to. I ask that you give Patience and Jordan a special sense of your presence as they wait on you. You are God and you have done great things. You do great things today...help us to remember the great and mighty things you have done and keep our eyes on you! Thank you Lord Jesus. There is no one like the Lord!

Hello again,
So sorry to hear Isaac is going through another rough patch. Be assured that you are remembered constantly in our prayers and thoughts. Our little boy Charlie (aged three, who also has hypoplastic left heart syndrome) is also praying for: "Baby Isaac who is poorly, and who has got a special heart like me".
Keep hanging in there - you must all be so exhausted - but there is so much love being sent to you and your little son from all over the world.
God Bless, with love and support,
Alison xx

Gracious Almighty God,
You are the Great Physician and we call out to You to continue to carry Isaac throughout this long day. You have done so many miracles on his behalf already and we know You are not finished. Lord, we know that You hear our prayers and are already working on Isaac's behalf. With You Lord, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Give comfort and peace to his precious parents and remind them that You have Isaac in Your mighty hands. They are so weary Lord, Be their refuge and strength today and lift them above all these difficulties.
We praise You Lord and trust in You to do a mighty work in Isaac's little body.
In the mighty and powerful name of Jesus,
Amen.

Lord, we all ask in Your name that you lay Your hands on Isaac and give him the healing powers of your love. Lord, we know that You, and You alone work miracles, and that Isaac is in Your care. Lord, we all pray that You will help Isaac's levels return to normal, and help him release all the fluid in his tiny little body. Give him the strength to fight and get over the hump. Amen
Patience, Jordan, and Isaac, I am continuing to pray for the 3 of you, and I know that there are about 900 people from my church are praying as well. God Bless all of you.
