When God performs a miracle, it needs to be shared. A friend of mine posted a story on his Facebook page today regarding a newborn in our church. We have been praying for David Jedediah and his family.
"Dear friends, last week I asked you all to pray for my friend's new born child. David had inhaled meconium during his birth. He suffered greatly from a lack of oxygen and the prognosis was pretty grim. David's chances were not good. The doctors decided that it would be better if David were airlifted to Denver's Children's Hospital. On arrival David went straight to the neonatal intensive care unit, he was fitted with a "chill cap" to slow the advancing brain damage. Unable to breath on his own, he was on full life support. Doctors were very concerned that should he live, it seemed likely he would have very serious brain injury.
"Well, let me tell you what your prayers and God has done. After David's parents were told David was too unstable to even do an MRI, the next day an MRI was done. The serious brain damage the doctors were sure David had sustained has been shown to not be deep or terribly significant. In fact the doctors now say that given the area affected it is quite possible the brain can compensate for the damage. Did I thank you all for your prayers? Did I tell you how great God is, because He is truly great. He is even working on the financial issues. David's parents say that David is dropping machines and meds like a champion. He is breathing on his own, his cooling cap is gone. As his dad says he is pooping and farting like a real boy. Thank you God! All glory to God!"
Amen. We prayed for a miracle and God answered our prayers by His mighty power. All praise, honor and glory to the God of Life. The Miracle Worker is still performing miracles today.
"Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving
And pay your vows to the Most High;
Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.”
