Please Pray!

Our world has been rocked by news from some of our dear friends.

Their son, Sterling, was diagnosed with a brain tumor last week. He is almost five years old.

Sterling was a perfectly healthy little boy with two younger sisters (and another sibling on the way) just last week. He has since undergone brain surgery to remove most of a slow growing tumor and is currently in the pediatric intensive care unit. All of this occured in the last ten days.

Please pray for Sterling and his family. They are awaiting results about the tumor from pathology. Supposedly it could take from five days to two weeks (can you imagine having to wait that long?) to find out if it is malignant. Pray for healing for Sterling, strength and comfort for his parents, and the surgeons and other doctors would have wisdom and discernment.

His parents have shared Isaiah 40:11, Psalms 34:8, and Hebrews 10:23 with their friends. The verses are below:

Isaiah 40:11 – He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arems and carries them close to His heart; He gently leads those that have young.

Psalms 34:8 – Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man that takes refuge in Him.

Hebrews 10:23 – Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.

Sterling 2
