I WANT AN EASTER MIRACLE

Tonight is the weekly prayer meeting at our church for Alex. Each week, faithful friends, and family, and staff gather to pray for Alex. What a humbling thing this is. Just knowing that people care enough to go out and gather together in spite of busy schedules, is such a blessing to this mother. The group is getting specific in their prayers at this point. They are asking God to allow Alex enough strength to attend church on Easter Sunday. I remember when he was little, I used to dress he and Ian alike sometimes. I was (and still am) a believer in short pants for little boys....up to a point. They always wore the little white English sandals for church. They were the cutest little boys you've ever seen! So, in preparation for this year, I am going tomorrow to buy him a new pair of pants...LONG...and a new shirt and tie. I am believing that God is going to answer our request with a "YES!". I am claiming the promises of God! I humbly ask you to add us to your prayer lists. I want to be able to stand up and say, "Look what God has done!" I want Alex to feel what it is like to be the recipient of God's grace and mercy. I want him to know that he is standing in the shadow of the Great Physician. And I will give all praise to God!

And, thank you for your sweet, heartfelt comment on my blog. It meant the world to me.

I'll add my prayers for Alex to the others. He deserves an Easter miracle - as do you.

I will be lifting him to the Lord every time he comes to mind. "Jesus, He can move the mountain! My God is MIGHTY to save, He is mighty to save!"

He has been, and will remain, on my prayer list. I can't wait to see a picture of him in that new tie!

Yeah, I agree with Jill. I'll be praying for that too, and be sure to give us a picture!
