Standing in the gap

On a more serious note, I just read a heartbreaking blog post and would ask everyone to join me in prayer for this dear family and their baby girl in Guatemala -- the Wheeler family.

This little family has already been through a lot of heartbreak recently and have already been on a very rough journey trying to bring their beautiful daughter home from Guatemala. Today they received a phone call that their baby girl is very very sick and almost died last night and is now in the hospital. I don't know any more than that, other than the fact that they are desperately trying to find a way to make it down to Guatemala today or tomorrow to be with her. (You can find their blog listed on the right in my list of blogs -- "The Lord, Mighty in Battle" -- if you would like to read about their journey or let them know you are praying for them, too.)

Heavenly Father,
I pray that you would hold the Wheeler family tightly in Your hands, that you would be with beautiful Eliana and heal her, that you would enable her parents to make it down there quickly to be with her, and that You would be glorified in all of this.
