Prayers for Stellan

There is a blog that I follow on and off called mycharmingkids.net....also known as MckMama's blog. I was drawn into this blog about 4 months ago. My friend Jackie had posted on her blog about MckMama's 4th pregnancy, and about how the doctors had given her a very grim prognosis for her sweet baby Stellan. You can go to MckMama's blog at http://www.mycharmingkids.net/ to see the full story, but essentially Stellan was diagnosed with many heart problems before birth. The doctors were doubtful that he would live to be full-term, and that if he did that he would probably die during birth or shortly after. MckMama and her husband decided that they would continue the pregnancy and enjoy his little life for as long as they could, and they would trust God with all the rest. Well, by a miracle Stellan was born a healthy baby boy about 3 months ago. A sweet little boy with a dimpled smile.

Unfortunately Stellan got sick a couple of days ago, and his heart began to race. He is now in the hospital and the doctors are having a difficult time slowing his heart to a normal rhythm. In short, Stellan's heart is sick, and he can only live so long with it in it's current state.

Now, I believe in a mighty and powerful God. A God that has in the past and continues today to work miracles. I believe that God fully has His hand on this situation, and He already knows the outcome. I believe in the power of prayer, and I believe that God answers prayer according to His will. So, please join with me in praying for little Stellan and his family. Again you can go to MckMama's blog to check for any updates. Thank you so much for your prayers.

I've been keeping up with her blog and I just can't imagine the pain they are going through! She has such a strong faith it seems. I admire her very much. I've been praying for them this week too!
