(prayer) warrior wednesday: the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these

There are some precious little ones that could use your prayers.  Thank you so much to those of you who are willing to lift these sweet children up in your prayers.

First, little Henley (she’s almost 3) is fighting a nasty form of cancer (neuroblastoma).  This sweet girl has been so tough and has had such an amazing attitude throughout this whole process (she’s been receiving treatment for over a year).  At the last update (Monday) Henley had not eaten in 14 days.  I’m hoping to see an update soon that says she’s started eating again.  In the meantime, please pray for that specifically.  Please also pray for healing and strength for her as she fights this.  Please also pray for her family: specifically her parents Grant and Lynsey and her big brother Cooper.  The faith evident in the way Lynsey writes about their journey is incredible.  If you want to read more about Henley’s story, here’s a link: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/bravebee.

Second is little Wynn (he’s not quite 1½ yet).  He’s been fighting a heart condition since birth and recently had a lengthy (10 hours) heart surgery.  He’s been improving (prayers work!), but he’s facing a long road to recovery.  Please pray for healing and strength.  Please also remember to pray for his parents (Scott and Ellen) and his big brother (Rhett).  To read more about Wynn, here’s a link: https://www.facebook.com/WynnMcBrayer.

Third is Jamie (he’s 15).  Jamie has gone through treatment for a rare form of cancer. The treatment was very aggressive and hard on him. Now they have found lesions on his lungs and the cancer has returned. Jamie does not want to undergo anymore treatment. Even with treatment the prognosis is very bad. Please pray for Jamie and his family (parents: Jackie and David) as they seek God’s will and make some very difficult decisions.
