Please pray for my boy

February 25, 2005    By: Geoff J @ 12:02 am   Category: Life

It’s just past midnight. I just came home for a few minutes from the ICU to write this post because I believe it could make a difference.

We found our sweet three year old son Quinn face down in the pool this afternoon. He is alive and stable now but there remains a very real risk of brain damage. You bloggernacle citizens are righteous people — I can tell. We are praying for a full recovery for Quinn. Can you please help? Prayer is a form of work but my family can’t do all this work alone. We need saviors on mount Zion to help us with this work. All we ask is one sincere prayer for the boy to have a full recovery. (If you can muster any more we would be very grateful). Our extended family and our ward family are already joining in the prayers. I came home tonight to beg for your prayers on behalf on Quinn as well. I got the feeling that it would be worth it.

UPDATE — Thank you all. We got our miracle. All is well.

  2. You’ve got mine, too, and I am pretty sleepless lately. Know he is in the Lord’s hands, whatever happens. Remember He loves us even more than we love our children. Have faith. You are not alone.

  31. We have both prayed deeply and sincerely for Quinn … and you know we aren’t prone to that sort of thing. I’ve been getting my information through dad and Russ, and am heartened at what I’ve most recently heard. I don’t intent to call for the time being for the sole reason that you have other things to deal with. But your family and Quinn are wholly in our thoughts and prayers. We’ll talk soon.

    Love, TC & Beth
