Pray for my Emmajoy!

To whomever may read this...

Would you please pray for my Emmajoy? She is my 6 year old, joyful, continually smiling, vibrant, gullible, sweet girl. (You know we all feel that way about all our kids!)

Emmajoy has developed a staff infection and it has been tested positive for MRSA bacteria. Now for you medical people, yes that is the scary bacteria only seen in hospitals for many years, but in the past 8 - 10 years it has evolved into a community MRSA which is not as bad! Still terrible, but not AS bad. We all probably have it on our skin and in our nose, but it is just waiting for a weaken immune system and/or a open sore such as bug bite to attack! I can not tell you that EJ had either, but somehow it attacked her! MRSA is known as an opportunistic bacteria! Sounds like or reminds me of Satan!

Emmajoy has boils all over her bottom and on her leg. We are taking hot baths 3 times a day with some medical soap and so far have been to the doctor 3 days in a row and will be going again tomorrow for more lancing. It is a painful thing and my drama queen makes it even worse! She is currently on 1 of the only 3 or 4 meds that can kill this bacteria. She says it is awful tasting.

Please of course pray for healing. Her fever has come back and I am not sure what to think about that. We have cancelled our trip, the Grandparent Tour, and we are all so sad about that. Me so more than anyone! Please pray for pain reduction and pray for all bacteria to be killed! Pray for the protection of the other kids!

My prayer for all my kids - Psalm 121

Psalm 121
A song of ascents. 1 I lift up my eyes to the hills— where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.


Thank you for all your prayers!!

Thank you Lord that You heal every kind of disease and every kind of sickness. Thank you Lord that we, as intercessors, can bring to You Emmajoy who is ill and you will heal her. We claim Your Words of healing from Matthew 4:23-24 and James 5:15.

Thank you Lord for Emmajoys healing, In Jesus' Name, Amen
