URGENT PRAYER


This is Hayden-- Sandy's brand new baby boy.





This is Sandy


Sandy Jackson

Open heart surgery in two days..
Just had a baby Tuesday last week.
She has a large hole in her heart that has to be repaired. If they cannot repair it then she will have to have a heart transplant.

She just moved to Pennsylvania and does not have any insurance. She needs a miracle from God.
The baby is fine and needs his mother.

She is my sisters daughter and she is my most favorite niece. She is just like me, a kindred spirit.

I will fast and pray..... please pray with me.

UP DATE: I spoke with Sandy a little while ago and she is in good spirits. I told her that there are many many wonderful women praying.
She is a smart cookie and she kept her medical insurance through Cobra when she left Calif. Praise God...... They are insured!
I am thankful to the Lord for that........ She is being moved to another hospital tonight that have a better machine for viewing the heart. Then surgery on Wednesday or Thursday...........

Thanks for the prayers!

Thank you so much for asking me to pray for Sandy and for baby Hayden.

It's an honor to pray!

Nothing is too hard for our God and I'm believing Him for a miracle in Sandy's life.
Deuteronomy 7:15 And the Lord will take away from thee all sickness.

That little note card was sitting right here by my computer.

Love,
Valerie

Wow...God please heal this young woman entirely whether through a miracle or through the surgery.We thank and we praise you Lord in Jesus name amen!Blessings~Sharon

Donetta said...

standing with you. The baby needs to bond. Take a cloth and have Sandy rub it all over herself. Even if she has not showered all the better place this in the infants crib. The baby needs to be held often and have this cloth between you and the infant. The infant will imprint Sandy's smell. Smell is a very important and very early developing since.
Take it to the hospital and do the same for Sandy take a blanket and have the baby 's sent on it for Sandy to hold and smell. It will help her in her sons absence. Works wonders.

Susan said...

Oh wow, I will keep your niece in prayer! So sorry to read she has to go through this.

Please keep us updated on her recovery.

Congrats on the new beautiful baby!!

Deb said...

Sita said...

Father, You who knit Sandy together in the womb knows her heart intimately. I ask You to repair what heeds repairing in Your way, in Your time, for Your purpose. This newborn needs his mom as much as she needs to be with him right now. I know You know this. I know You love her, love this family, because You died for them. So I surrender them to You asking You to show Your omnipotence for Your renown. In the Name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

PEA said...

Dearest Denise,

Please know that my prayers are with you, your niece and family. May God watch over her as she has the surgery and may she recover fully so that she can enjoy her gorgeous baby boy!! xoxo

Edge of Design said...

Aw! I'm sure David must be feeling somewhat bittersweet with bringing his new baby home and feeling somewhat helpless to help his wife. We can take up for him in prayer. I was so encouraged by your dad's email and your updates. Thanks for letting Sandy know we're praying for her. If you look at her picture and yours, there's sure a resemblance there. :)

Runner Mom said...

I will be praying for you all.
Blessings,
Susan

Vicki said...

JC said...

Father God, I reach my faith toward Sandy right this moment. I stand in agreement with Aunt Denise each blogger in lifting Sandy to you. Father I know you are the God of miracles and I am unashamed of the God I serve. Daddy, you always give me what I ask and I know you aren't going to stop now. Father I ask you to supernaturally close the hole in Sandy's heart. I pray you bring healing scripture to her rememberance and cause them to bubble up in her spirit and come out her mouth in spoken confessions to you. "By His stripes I am healed" Jesus told his disciples that greater works than he would they do because He was returning to You,Father. That the Father would send to comforter to be in them to work the works of our Savior because we have surrendered all and humbly ask for your intervention on Sandy's behalf. Daddy, thank you so much for hearing and acting on this requesting. In Jesus' holy, precious and POWERFUL name I pray. Amen

Denise, thanks for leaving a comment to let me know of this request. I truly believe the miracles of the Bible are still real today. I'm expecting a praise report. Now for you, this scripture came to mind, tonight during my small group Bible study. Isaiah 66:2(AMP)"....But this is the man to who I will look and have regard: he who is humble and of a broken or wounded spirit, and who trembles at My word and reveres My commands" Remember He resists the proud and give more grace (favor) to the humble. That is reason enough for me to walk (sometime crawl and many time fall to my knees) in humility. Grace & mercy to you my friend.

Good Morning hon,

I read the comments and the lady that suggested rubbing the infant with a soft cloth and giving the cloth to Sandy to breath in the scent of her infant is a fantastic and VERY importqant in her healing/recovery from her surgery!

When I had my first daughter I spent several days in ICU seriously ill with kidney liver failure...I almost passed. My husband instinctivly knew I needed that baby I had birthed to bond with to recover/heal...he went to maternity unit and 'hijacked ' my baby's isolete, the nurse and said "if we don't get this baby to her mother I'll lose my wife". My beautiful daughter was placed in my arms...I breathed in the sweet scent of my newborn and it was like a heavenly breath of an angel....my vitals/my health started to improve almost immediately...my husband/baby saved my life. There is something so true, powerful, miraculous, God given in the bond between a mother and her new infant. All it takes is a whiff of sweet baby perfume. Praise God for the lady that suggested this! Honey..I am praying for the father too...God bless this sweet family!!! It is DONE! Love to you!!!

kansasrose said...

OH..and the baby need his momma's scent too! Rub Sandy's face with a cloth,a piece of clothing or something the nurse gives to you and allows the baby to snuggle with his mother's scent. Bonding is vital for Hayden too! :)
