Please say a prayer.

I have a favor to ask of anyone that reads my blog. It is not a personal favor, but one that I would be so happy for you all to oblige none the less. Our cousins have very close friends that are going through an extremely rough time right now. They were expecting a little boy to be born in April and he unexpectedly made his arrival on the last day of December. This sweet little boy and his family are in desperate need of prayers. Lots of them. Specific prayers, general prayers, short prayers, long prayers.....any kind of prayers that you all can send up. They have a created a Caring Bridge webpage so that we can all keep up with his status. Please take just a few minutes out of your day and visit little Miller's page. Once there enter in the name MillerSmith (with no spaces) in the section where it says visit a CaringBridge website. There his story is told more completely than I will be able to but in a nutshell he was born premature at 24 weeks. He weighed one pound eight ounces. His family has been told several times by the dr.'s to expect the worst, but each time this little guy comes back fighting. He is truly a miracle. As a mommy of two NICU graduates myself I know how grueling this time can be for the parents and relatives as well. Please remember to ask God to lay his grace and comfort upon them also during this stressful time. If you all are involved in any prayer groups, or know any church prayer intercessors, or just good folks who would be willing to pray for this little guy, please pass his story on to them too. I know with his story spreading far beyond just those who know him, that we will see many more miracles out of this little fella. Thank you for your help. And remember to say a special thank you tonight for the healthy children in your life! I know I will. :)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)
