Current Prayer Needs

February 21, 2007 at 9:21 pm (Faith)

The blogging world is a small one sometimes – especially when it comes to prayer. Here are 3 right now that have moved me to tears and are getting my daily prayers:

Josh Gass – This is a young boy in our church who is in an experimental study for B-precursor Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He has been in the hospital since January 10th with a very serious COCCI infection. He is making great progress and continually amazes the doctors but still needs prayers. View updates here.

Amy  Wilhoite – I learned of Amy’s battle with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia via someone else’s blog and have been following her story since last summer. She had a bone marrow transplant several months ago. Today they learned that the cancer has returned and her prognosis is not good. Through it all she has been an amazing testimony to the Savior. Her latest post says, "My part in all of this is rather easy. I get to die and be with my
Savior in glory. I get to miss out on all the suffering this world
holds. It is my family who bear the grief and the pain day in and day
out. It is for them that my heart breaks." Please keep her and her family (including a very young son) in your prayers.

Ethan Powell is a 10 week old little boy diagnosed with Leukemia on Feb. 6th. When he was admitted his white blood cell count was approx 1.5 million when it should be in the low one thousands. It has come down at an amazing speed – a testimony to the power of prayer – and they are now looking for a bone marrow donor. Again, another family that is an amazing testimony of faith under fire.
