As parents, we recognize that this little girl is being knit together in Lori’s womb by the creator of the universe, the one true living God. Our faith in Jesus Christ is what keeps us going day after day. While we don’t know why Savannah has these so-called “defects,” we know that God is in control of her future. The best action we can take right now is to prayer.
In the book of Luke, Jesus does many miracles by healing the sick.
At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind. So he replied to the messengers, “Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. Luke 7:21-22 (NIV)
In reading the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi, we’re reminded of God’s promise to us regarding prayer.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
Typically, we think of prayers as being spoken, but we’re asking that you’d take the time to write a prayer. As parents, we’re asking God for Savannah to grow up to live a full, happy and healthy life, if that’s what His will is for her. We’re hoping that one day, ten to fifteen years from now, we can hand her a book filled with prayers that were written to God on her behalf. If you would, please take the time to type a prayer for Baby Savannah. Just type it in the “Leave a reply” section below and click “Submit comment”:
