prayers for 3 month old baby
« on: June 24, 2005, 03:20:00 PM »
Dear Friends,

A family from my church is presently in China, and the couple's 3 month old baby is suffering from something which is making it so his blood won't clot. The hospital they are at in China is international and is the best there, and the child is getting very good care, but the doctor has called the condition "life threatening." The baby and his father were received into the Church on Bright Saturday of this year, so he (the father) and I were catechumens together. The whole parish has been asked to pray for them...the baby's name is Elias, please keep Elias, David and Emilita in your prayers.

In Christ,
Donna Mary

For sure!

I am not worthy to ask much, but that is such a great cause!
Lord have mercy.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

Lord have mercy.
We owe greater gratitude to those who humble us, wrong us, and douse us with venom, than to those who nurse us with honour and sweet words, or feed us with tasty food and confections, for bile is the best medicine for our soul. - Elder Paisios of Mount Athos

Prayers
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

an update:

Elias is still in the hospital in China, but the parents are a little less worried. The baby is getting good treatment and is no longer in any immediate danger. He still needs more tests though, to determine his diagnosis, and the parents are trying to decide whether to stay in China or come back to the US early to get treatment here.

thank you all for your prayers, and please keep them coming that things continue to get better for baby Elias and his parents.

In Christ,
Donna Mary
