We need emergency prayers

We need emergency prayers for Gaines. He is not doing very well on the ventilator and the doctors have decided to switch him to another machine. The hospital is having to get this machine brought in. He should be hooked up to the new machine in about an hour. Hopefully this will correct the problem but please pray for his under developed lungs.

Father - our Great Physician,

Be with tiny Gaines right now. Cause his lungs to function well on the new machine that is being brought in. Help them to grow healthy and strong with your lifegiving Breath. Give Gaines the time he needs to develop fully, as You have given him the time he needed in the womb.

Bring strength to Beau and Brittany as they wait for Gaines to stabilize. Help them to rejoice in the midst of uncertainty.

We look to you, Lord. Amen

I'll be praying for you guys tonight. THanks for keeping us updated as you have been. I am sure things change moment by moment.

I pray for the Peace of God over you and the Doctors as they care for Gaines. He has been with you through all of this and has worked miracles in your story already... He won't stop now! I fully Believe this!!!

Jesus, help Gaines breathe. Touch his tiny body. Help the machines to work well in this critical 24 hr period.

THank you jesus for all you've done so far and we praise you for all you're going to do!

Amen

Father God, the Creator of Life, Your Son came to give life more abundantly. We ask for abundant life for Gaines. You knew him before he was born and gave him the breath of life. You are still in control of his life. We ask for the healing and health that Gaines needs that Christ suffered to give us. May the peace of God that passes all understanding fill your hearts and minds Beau and Brittany and your famlies. In the strong name of Jesus, we pray. Amen!

Oh LORD Jesus we lift up little Gaines to you. LORD I thank you for safely delivering him. We thank you for the extra 37 (or so) days he was able to grow in his mommy. Lord I pray that you touch Gaines' lungs. Lord please let him do well on the new machine and grow his lungs. Thank you for this precious miracle!!

Dear Heavenly Father,
Please be with Gaines right now. Thank you for his precious life and for getting Beau and Brittany to this point in the journey. Father, his little lungs need your healing touch right now. I pray that this new machine gives his lungs just the help that they need and that you would really touch him with healing, growth and development. Please be near Brittany and Beau as they walk through this time. Comfort them. Remind them of Your Truth and give them strength. Heal Brittany's body from delivery and give her the rest that she needs.

We commit this dear family to You, Precious Father, in Jesus' Name,
Amen.

Kristi J said...

Oh he's so perfect and precious.

Heavenly Father, we hold this sweet babe up to you in prayer and ask that you heal Gaines' body, most specifically his lungs, to make him ready for this Earth. Lord, we pray for you to work through the doctors overseeing Gaines, that they will make the proper decisions for his care based on knowledge you give them. Lord, give comfort to Beau, Brittany and their family during this time, knowing you are fully in control. We praise you, in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour's name. Amen.

I know it's frightening! The machine they are bringing in is probably an oscillating vent or a jet, and it's not super uncommon for a baby to need it. It will be scary to see Gaines on it because it will cause him to vibrate... But it is actually a little easier on these little delicate lungs. We'll be praying it helps and that Gaines will be off it very soon...

Still praying in TN...
