A prayer request, sure, that is the least I can do. I am so thankful that my children, grandchildren and great, grandchildren are all healthy and doing well-what if it were one of my own. Wouldn't I want prayers for them? In fact, in several critical situations, my family has done the same-requested prayers from the Facebook community and they have come through so how can I not do the same for another.
For Gavin, my prayers went into a quilt for him as for other children in jeopardy. Prayers go into each stitch to cover him with, prayers for healing, prayers that he will be pain free, prayers for his family as they travel this journey with him.
Yes, Gavin needed a quilt so I went to the box that holds the fabics reserved for my prayer quilts and lo, and behold, there was one already partially done. I had pulled some blocks from another box but this discovery was the one. This is for Gavin. The rest of the day was spent finishing the quilt top and then quilting it with stitched prayers.
A pocket is sewn onto the back of the quilts for the child to put special things to keep close by as they go through treatments. I try to keep books for the pocket but didn't have the exact thing I wanted so took a shopping trip. I found something for Gavin plus another couple of books for the next prayer quilt-just in case another little face peaks out at me.
Here's Gavin's quilt with it's treasure pocket:
Jesus said 18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
So even though we cannot all be together physically, let's gather in prayer for Gavin.
God bless all of you
