Prayers for Olivia

As a few know, Olivia will be admitted to Texas Childrens on Monday November 7 to undergo not only some testing, but a scope as well will be done through her nose to see if there is any way that all or some of the tumor in her brain can be removed.  The doctors will also be looking to see if the steroids and the radiation have done any good.  As you can imagine, this is going to be an extremely hard and stressful time not only on Kelly and Jeff but as the girls as well.  No one is aware of the outcome of the situation if the doctors can remove anything, the recovery time or the process to care for Olivia.  We do know that the Almighty God is TOTALLY AWARE of Olivia's needs and of the doctors desire to treat Olivia to the best of their ability.  I ask that everyone who takes a moment to read this please take a moment this evening and in the days to come to lift up the family, little Olivia, the nurses and the doctors.  Please pray for God's guidance to direct the doctors hands and hearts and minds on what can be done.  Please pray for healing for little Olivia's body.  We know that God can not only shrink this tumor but he can make it disappear, he can give her back her words.  He has raised Lazarus, he gave sight to the blind, fed a multitude off a few loaves of bread and fish.  My God can and will heal Olivia.  My God can and will restore her to what He has intended for her to be.  I've heard the story so many times that if you have faith, even as small as a mustard seed, thats enough faith for you to see the good works that God can do.

Updates will be posted on the blog as well as on facebook on Kelly's wall as to the condition of Olivia, prayer requests, Praises to God and any needs.  Please also pray for Kelly's family and friends who will be caring for the girls while Kelly and Olivia are at the hospital.  Please give them the strength to comfort the girls, words of encouragement where needed and pray that the girls have peace about Olivia.

Please pray for patience and understanding for Kelly.  It's hard to be a mother of a sick child and having to wait for answers.  We as humans want the instant gratification, we want things done immediately or we become angry.  We as Christians, need to remember that all things are done in God's time, because we are doing His will not ours.  We need to remember to have faith that the outcome will be what's right, whats supposed to be and what God has planned.  We have to TRUST and OBEY.....

Do not be terrified....for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.  Joshua 1:9

I have filled him with the spirit of God, with skill, ability and knowledge.  Exodus 31:3

Pray continually;give thanks in all circumstances.  1 Thessalonians 5:17,18
