Prayer for Andrew

Hey Everybody,

I’m sending out a prayer alert to my friends and family in blog world. Andrew, our 1-yr old (almost 2!) is about to be taken down to Nemours Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, FL.

We discovered a lump in his .. well, no way to say it other than just to say it … “bottom” … or “butt” … a couple of days ago when changing his diaper. Seemed to be a tough lump down under the skin, and when we called the pediatrician, he wanted to see Andrew right away because it sounded like how some of this nasty staph infection starts.

Upon observation and an ultrasound at the hospital today, the results showed it wasn’t fluid like we thought, but rather some type of a solid mass. It’s puzzling to the doctors because it’s not causing Andrew any pain whatsoever – he has no clue about it!

Due to the nature of it all, the doctor has referred us to a surgeon at Nemours in Jacksonville, FL and wants us there “sooner than later” to get further imaging, testing, and if necessary, a biopsy or surgery. Nemours just called and we’re scheduled to get there at 8:00 AM tomorrow morning (Thursday).

Would you please pray for Andrew, and for us? We are in faith that this won’t be anything serious, and we’re praying (and asking others to pray) that by the time we get to JAX this thing will just have disappeared. God is a miracle God, and we know He is able. Pray for the Dr’s to have wisdom about it and to diagnose it properly. Of course, if it’s gone, that won’t be an issue, right?

Lastly, just pray for peace for us. We recognize that Satan would love nothing more than for us to be gripped by fear, and we don’t want to go there at all. We refuse to!

Thanks for your prayers!
Fred (& Joy)

  3. Dear God, I know you are completely in control of Andrew’s life and everything about it. I know that you have the tiniest detail in the palm of your hand. I know that You are able to perform a miracle that we cannot believe. I don’t know your will, Father, but I ask you, through the name of the Saviour whose blood was shed that we could experience the greatest healing of all, to heal Andrew. We love you, Jesus. In the name of Jesus Christ we ask, Amen.

  4. Sis says:

    Amen and Amen! Andrew has a Godly mission to fulfill in this life, and it’s not about to be impeded by any scheme of the enemy! I’m standing in faith with you, bro, and having folks here in ATL praying as well! I just taught last night from the book of Ephesians that God has pre-determined a way out of any situation we face, and that there are no surprises in Him. He’s not surprised by any of this, and already has the way of deliverance and healing prepared!
