    Would you please pray for our 2 year old grandson, Bennet. I know many of you have been praying for him since his birth in Aug. 2012. He was born with HLHS (half of his heart is missing) and has gone through 2 open heart surgeries already, as well as a few other surgeries.
    His heart defect cannot “be fixed” but the doctors have planned a 3 operations procedure that, if successful, can keep him alive. The oldest people living with his condition are in their late 20’s. We didn’t expect that he would need this 3rd surgery this soon, but we have been told that test are saying he needs the 3rd operation sometime this summer, before flu season, as a simple case of flu can be deadly to him.

    Obviously this is a lot to take in for his mama and daddy, and all of us. We know we can lose him during the operation, and there is a great risk that he won’t be “the same” after it.. but without it, we will surely lose him.

    Please pray for our precious boy and his parents. The Lord has done and is doing such a beautiful work of His grace in all of our lives through Bennet’s broken heart, and we know and believe that He works all things together for good, according to His purposes.

    You can read his mama’s wonderfully written posts on this public Facebook page:
    Praying for Baby Bennet

    We live 5,000 miles from them and they have told us it is really important to them that we be there for the operation and recovery. So please pray we can get last minute tickets, once they set the date for surgery in late July or ??
    Thank you for praying.

    Oh what a heart breaker this is Lord!

    While we trust and rely upon You, things like this are so unsettling.

    As Bennet’s family Velcros to You in perfect trust, the rest of us in the knowledge of Bennet’s condition want to join in intercession for his young life.

    We are desirous of a creative miracle of a sign and a wonder from Your gracious loving hand.

    Would you grant this to us?

    We are asking You for healing of this little man’s heart.

    Please make every cell and fiber of this heart whole in the name of Jesus Christ.

    Yesterday my sister took our mother to see a neurologist to get help in determining what caused our mother to have a pretty severe fall several weeks ago causing her to be hospitalized. She has dementia that is slowly progressing. All sorts of tests were done and everything came back negative.

    Anyway they were seen by a nurse practitioner who stated our mother has a seizure disorder and put her on anti seizure medication. She also stated it was time for our mother to quit driving which she sadly agreed to.

    My sister is the one who physically attacked and bit me earlier this year and has cut herself off from the outside world. She receives no benefits and depends on our mother for everything.

    Since our mother’s fall my sister has begun to speak to my siblings and myself as our mother’s fall scared her badly. Currently my sister has no drivers license and has a few warrants outstanding that come to a few thousand dollars.

    I’m going to have to speak to my sister about this as it puts our mother at great risk if there’s an accident or she gets pulled over. Other things will need to be addressed as well as it appears our mother is going to continue to get worse.

    All of this I share so anyone who reads this would pray as I want the best for our mother as she is well aware that she’s slipping and also that my sister would work with me and my siblings (who aren’t nearby) towards the best solution even if it may be disagreeable to her. Thank you.
