For Dylan

Lord Jesus, snuggle that baby girl so warmly and gently and firmly in your lap right now that she can't possibly feel anything but safety and security and comfort and peace. Father, ease her pain completely, settle her mind and nerves, and bring complete healing to her body. Wash over her with your sweet fragrance and draw near to her in such a way that she might not ever be able to explain to us but that SHE will KNOW and UNDERSTAND to be you--her Jesus, her Healer, her Comforter, her Protector. Make yourself known to her, Jesus. Help her feel your presence and know your embrace. Make her whole again so very soon, Lord. And send her home to us well and smiling and happy and sassy.

Father, hold Jody and Jon so close to your heart right now. Give them a peace that is so huge it makes no sense but is so very real. Help them to rest in you and know that you hold their entire family in the palm of your hand. Lord, surround them with you. Only you, sweet Jesus. Your comfort, your peace, your power and control over this entire situation.

Lord, intervene in such a way that you cannot be denied. Show yourself mighty as we know you are, Father.

Lord, please take care of sweet Dylan, and give her a comfort that can only come from you. Please protect her from any long-term complications, and bless her with complete healing. Help her to carry this testimony of your faithfulness throughout the rest of her life, and never let her lose sight of your great love. Please be with Jon and Jody. Give them an overwhelming peace, and remind them that no one loves Dylan more than you. We love you, Lord. You are so good to us. Thank you that we can come to you when we are hurting and that you never leave us to deal with the struggles of this life alone. You are always faithful!
