Elizabeth Owens Steedley posts on facebook in her status: How can I pray for you today? It is the most powerful post and what happens from it is even more powerful.
I asked her to pray for Luke and for all that is going on with the pending grants and fundraising.
She shared her prayer with me and I just couldn't stop reading and rereading it. It is one of the most beautiful prayers I have ever read.
My favorite part is the end~I bolded it. It reminds me of what I keep saying...what a testimony Luke will have when he does speak!
Here is the prayer~
I thank you for Mary and for the opportunity to pray for Luke.
Lord, I thank you for the progress that has been made so far in his treatment.
I pray that you will continue to put the people in his path that are needed to unlock his voice.
I pray for wisdom for those treating him and that they would find new and imaginative ways to care for Luke.
Lord, I pray for the Tarpley's as they face the mounting financial burden of this undertaking.
I pray that you will open the windows of Heaven and that blessings will fall upon them.
I pray that they will be amazed by the grants and financial blessings that are afforded to them.
I pray for blessings upon Mary, Brad, Maggie & Luke and that through this, they would draw closer to each other and closer to you.
I pray that we will hear from Luke's very own voice the Praise and Glory that YOU deserve for the miracle that is happening in their lives.
In Jesus' Name.
