Daddy's Prayer for Isaac

I think the only way to SHOW you the incredible faith of my amazing husband is to share with you the prayer he wrote for Isaac that night Isaac was born as he read the Bible:

Isaac is a gift from God. Love is a gift from God. Sickness and abnormalities are not. But it is through Isaac's sickness and struggles that the Lord Almighty will be glorified. All that we have we will give Isaac and what we have is love and faith.

"Love never gives up; and its faith, hope and patience never fail."

Our faith and prayer is that the will of God be done. God's will is not death; it is not sickness. It is LIFE, for that is what he gave Isaac when He gave him to us.

We put our trust in the doctors and nurses and the hospital, but not our faith; our faith is in God. We believe the doctors will do everything they are trained to do in order to help Isaac. But it is our faith that will heal him. Our firm undoubting, unwavering faith in God's Goodness. HE CREATED Isaac. He created Heaven and earth, the sky and mountains, the creatures and birds, He created night and day and he even created light itself - the same light that you see reflecting from Isaac's awesome dark brown hair.

This is what we pray in Jesus' name, knowing that what we ask in faith (faith the size of a mustard seed) will be provided according to God's plan, that Isaac will come home to his family, be free from sickness and be able to know our love for him and the love our his Creator.

"Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you."

With faith we will expect and be looking for answered prayer so that the glory of God and His power and love may be known to all who know Isaac. If Isaac has the strength to fight for every breath and achieve victory, then we all can have enough faith that he is in God's hands and that is the greatest gift - LOVE.

I have closed my ear to negative forecasts from the world and am listening only to God, and all of this prayer is what I have been hearing. I ask that those who have offered to pray pray this same prayer.

Thanks be to God, His love, and His eternal power.

But the angel of the Lord called to him from Heaven "Abraham, Abraham." he answered. "Here I am." "Don't hurt the boy or do anything to him," he said, "now that you have not kept back your only son (Isaac) from Him." Abraham looked around and saw a ram caught in a bush by its horns. He went and offered it as a burnt offering instead of his son. Abraham named that place "The Lord Provides."

May we have Abraham's faith
