Please pray for Benjamin and Isaac

Please pray for these two babies.
Benjamin Amick
He is quite possibly the cutest baby on the planet. His mommy is my friend and he just had open-heart surgery. The blog will break your heart. I have cried so much about him. Pray for his quick healing and protection. I love this sweet baby boy so much!!!!!!!!!!!
Isaac
Sweet Isaac is going to be born this Tuesday. Pray for a miracle for him and peace for his parents. She has a list of specifics to pray for on her blog.
Suffering babies are such evidence that this place is not the way it was meant to be. It makes me so thankful for Jesus that we may all have hope. Hope for today and hope for eternity. He can make everything beautiful. He can demonstrate His power in Awesome ways. He is in control when life seems out of control. He is coming for us.
This is not our home. Our home does not have hospitals or tears or illness.
But He has promised to be WITH us through every trial here holding our hand, encouraging us, strengthening us. He has also asked... I mean... COMMANDED us to PRAY for others. So. let's do it.
I am so thankful that we have hope... so thankful that we have HIM.
May Jesus come quickly and rescue us from this world of suffering. And may we experience His love and grace until then and be shining lights in this dark world.
Hug your children tight and be so thankful for every minute with them.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
I am going away and I am coming back to you."
Jesus

Thank you so much. I so wish I could be there physically to enter the throne room with you! How amazing that we can be miles apart, but our Father hears each of our prayers.

I'm still praying for complete healing on your part. I know that God will use these trials for His glory... He has already begun!
