Hi, I'm new here. My son was born 4 months early he was only 1 lb 7 oz. He is very sick. He has alot of medical problems and at 9 months old he is still in the ICU. He has just recently gotten a Trach and is still on the ventilator. He is doing very good considering. I have just found it so hard to stay strong. I know with all my heart and soul he is going to be fine some day. The reason I know this is because when he was 4 months old the doctors said he was going to die, but I didn't feel sad I wanted to scream at him and say NO HE IS NOT! and then the doctor said this " We have done all we can do, it is up to him and God now" and at that very moment even though his heart was stopping I knew deep down he was going to live. because My son Mathew is a fighter and God is a healer. He lived and is doing better, but still sick and in the hospital and everyday that passes I feel sad because he isn't well and home yet. So what I'm asking is Please pray for my son to be well and for my family and I to be able to hang in there just a little longer.

Thank you,

Brittany

Father please help Brittany and her family. Give her the strength she needs each day to do what you have her to do. Help her know that you are very close to her and love her. Fill her with your peace. Help her to find the help she needs from those around her.

My son was born at 25 weeks gestation and weighted in at 1lb 7oz also. He too was trached around 6 months or so and I got told he would die as well. God is truly the ultimate physician. I will be praying for your son and your family. My son is now 8 years old although he has a lot of problems, he's still my baby, my precious baby and God has given him such personality and because of him being in my life, I have been able to share God's truth with many, many woman and help some even become Christian. God has even more in store for you than you could ever know. Please continue to hold to him, and get your strength from the scriptures. Please contact me anytime. I'd love to talk with you and pray with you. Be strong.

I pray that your little man is not in any pain and that you are ok. Remember, if you need to cry, by all means let it out! You have every right to be sad. Feel all of the emotions, knowing that one day, your heart will be healed. Sure, God gives us challenges in life, but it is how we handle those situations that prove our faith in Him.

God be with you now and always, hun!

im sorry to hear about that. no mother should have to go through seeing their child being raised in icu n not being home. my sister has a problem with her son that she is pregnant with and she is only 6mths along right now and the doctors are saying he wont make it due to his heart has stopped 3xs already n she is only 21 yrs old n signing "just in case" funeral arrangments. but everyday she tries to keep her head high with the father not being their to help her because he has drama problems n his family are rude n make threats towards her, he dont even go to the appts when she goes to the hospital for tests 2xs a week. but my lil nephew keeps fighting. im a born again christian n god is their and he wont let a lil one suffer because he is the only one who truly knows how much anybody could. just remembver hes gods n it is in his hands to keep on having that faith. god bless you n yours for staying this strong. i hope for the best in all to come n more

In the name of Jesus. I come into agreement with you now and I speak healing over your babies life. For the word of God says that by HIS stripes we were healed therefore Matthew IS healed! When you go to the hospital speak scriptures to him. Say them on tape and play them for him. Let him hear the word, for it's the word that brings life! I pray that God will also surround him with nurses, doctors and aides who are PRAYING BELIEVERS and are not afraid to exercise the anointing on their lives for Matthew's sake. I plead the blood of Jesus over his life and I speak healing, restoration, and life to him now! I release my faith with you now that God wll move mightily on his behalf and that he will live and not die to testify, witness, glorify, worship and praise the Lord our God. I pray that you and your family receive strength during this time of testing. Trust God...and speak the word only! Trouble your doubts and it will calm your fears. IN JESUS NAME! Be encouraged for God knows the plans he has for his life. Jer 29:11 (MSG)

Most Holy and all wise God, I come before Your Holy Presence to thank You for Who You are in our lives and I praise You for what You have done for Mathew, what you are doing for Mathew and for what you are going to do for Mathew. Father You sent Your Son Jesus Christ to die on the Cross for our sins. While on the cross He bore our infirmities. Now God I plea the Blood of Jesus over Mathew's little life right now in the mighty name of Jesus. By Your stripes Mathew is already healed. I pray that the mother and other family members will remain strong and continue to trust in You with all of their heart. In all of their ways the mom and family will acknowledge you and allow you to direct their path during this season with Mathew. Now Father let your will be done in the life of Mathew. Now Father I release my faith with Brittany and I thank you now in advance for your majestic power over every area of the Compton Family's life in Jesus name amen.

To God be the glory for great things he has done! Matthew has lived longer than the Doctors thought he would. We don't always understand why we go through the things we do and we often wonder why God allows it. Time and time again I have found that when I kept my faith God provided a miracle. I pray God's peace for you and your family right now. In the name of Jesus, I pray that Matthew continues to show improvement in his health and that he will grow up to be a testimony to what God can do when we pray in faith believing. I will continue to lift Matthew and your family up in prayer. I have also found that the prayers of others many times are right on time for what I need in my life; just as all these prayers are for you now. Remain in God's trust and he will give you the strength to see Matthew through this.

God's Blessing!

We have had so many amazing miracles of healing in our lives both ourselves and our children. My son was only in icu 7 days, but he could,'t breathe and i know how scary all of that can be. I will be praying and expecting a miracle because when the doctors can't do anything, that is when God steps in the great healer and provider. Let me know if there is any encouragement i can give you regarding bible promises and testimonies of healing. God doesn't judge or expect you to be strong on your own, lean on him, trust and believe in hope against hope as it says in the bible as he has promised healing and what he has said he will do, he will do. Love and heartfelt prayers coming your way, I will also ask our assembly to pray for his complete healing tomorrow at church meeting.

Brilttany,

Give God the Glory and the Praise for Healing your son and bringing him home...He has heard your prayers and He's working it out. The prayer of a righteous man availeth much. When two people touch and agree and ask anything in His name He said that He would do it. So just start getting things ready at home. When you put ALL your faith in Him...let it go and LET GOD! Is there anything to hard for Him?
