Please pray for Isabella


My heart goes out to this beautiful baby, Isabella.

Blogger pal Sharilyn sent an earnest prayer request via her blog, for her friends' child. My heart shattered when I visited Isabella's site to understand her situation better.

I couldn't help it as her curls and soulful eyes teased me. The captivating smile lured me to her site.

Isabella is suffering from Bronchial Displasia, immature lungs at birth and faces life threats whenever she catches a flu or cold.

The poor child caught cold again late last month and is fighting for her dear life in ICU. I cried at what her family wrote, ' Her lungs are filling up rapidly and she needs to have a tube inserted to aspirate, which causes discomfort and bleeding. She has had so many needles that she has no good veins left that can be found to adminster her medicines. One three occasions, over an hour was spent poking her in the arms, legs, neck and head trying to find a good vein (in the picture she has a needle in just above the ear). '

People, she needs our prayers now!! Let's escalate our prayers to God for Isabella, that He'll extend His healing hands this very moment.

"This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us - whatever we ask - we know that we have what we asked of him" (1 John 5:14-15).

Please visit Isabella's site to understand her condition and needs.
