Prayers Needed.

Hello all (five of you).

I meant to talk about this earlier and then completely forgot that I hadn't!

There is a little girl by the name of Ellia. She is three, the same age as my niece, and is going through a tremendous amount of pain, suffering, with an uncontrollable body. And no one, especially that age, should have to go through something like that.

Listen here.

My older sister is friends with Ellia's mom from Baylor. My sister called and told me about what was going on and now I am sharing it with you.

Here is a short quote from Brett Gibson (Ellia's father) explaining what happened, "Ellia had what is called post-viral rhabdomyolysis, which is essentially a breaking down of the muscles. Usually rhabdomyolysis is caused by injury, but it can also be brought on by a virus. Ellia, it appears, had a virus a little while back which, after it had dissipated, attacked her muscles".

Here is a note written by Brett about the first episode she had. PLEASE take the time to read this.

Here is a note explaining the second episode Ellia experienced, just two weeks ago.

Now, after twelve days in the hospital, they are back home figuring out life and she is still being a warrior princess girl unable to walk.

More than anything, I only write this post in hopes that you will be willing to lift this little girl up to the Lord in prayer. That is the best and most caring thing you could do for her and her family. Prayer is a powerful thing. Won't you join me?

Also, if you'd like. Ellia's dad gives constant twitter updates, so you can know how they are doing at the time....Twitter Page.

Psalm 8:2-4

2 Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.

3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

4 what are mere mortals that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
