Please Pray

I recently mentioned our friend’s baby boy who is very sick and in the hospital.  This prayer request sent today is weighing very heavily on my heart right now, and I know that many of you who read this blog would love to pray for this little one.

Below is the request from Canaan’s mom, Julie.  Please hold this little boy and his family in your prayers today.

We were told Canaan's recent struggles were brought on by pulmonary hypertension with no connection to his airway. From all of the support he has been on he may have permanent lung damage. He is on the maximum amount of support they can give him. We were told all they can do is keep him there until his body decides to work properly -or- until it decides not to work at all. They DID NOT say he will die today, but what they emphasized is that they are very unsure of what the future holds for him.

I have not talked directly to Julie, but I asked a close friend of hers at church if she thought Julie would mind if I shared a link to Canaan’s blog so that others could see this precious boy and have a better idea of who they are praying for.  She said she thought that would be fine.  Here is the link if you’d like to see:
