Prayer Request for A Tiny Baby (Update in post #12850)
Myself | 8-11-03 | Brad's Gramma

Posted on 08/11/2003 12:57:30 PM PDT by Bradís Gramma

If you will, please remember this tiny baby in your prayers. He’s the grandson of a very dear friend of mine. Logan was born on July 25. His due date was in October, making his mommy 26 weeks along, being born 3 months and 3 days early.

Logan was 1 lb 9.4 oz when he was born and is now weighing, as of this morning, 1 lb. 8.3 oz. The little guy is now 12-1/2” long.

He’s a real trooper and is fighting with all his little body can fight with. His Grandma said that he’s starting to recognize his mommy when she comes in the room and hears her voice. She said he tries so hard to open his eyes, and starts kicking his feet.

I asked my friend if there were any specific prayers, other than the obvious…and this is her reply…” A prayer of thanks for the miracle called "Logan.”

On a personal note, I’ve read the emails daily from my friend. I’ve known her for years, I’ve heard her talking about her family for years…but I’ve got to tell you that I’m SO impressed with how her children have all banded together in support. What an incredibly wonderful and loving family.

Father God, we lift up Logan’s little body to you. We pray that you can strengthen him hourly, daily, weekly, until he’s grown enough to go home with his precious family. We ask for guidance for the doctors and nurses who are caring for him. We ask for strength for his parents and extended family. Thank you so much for the gift of life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Fellow Freepers…….I bring you Logan!!!

Wow.

My wife was an ICN Nurse. Some of those tiny ones are incredibly plucky. Will pray.

Blessings to all concerned.

Our friends had a baby that weighed in at 1.2 lbs I think. They used grams and I had to convert..might be wrong on the exact weight. He'll turn 13 in November and is just perfect.

By the way, prayers certainly don't hurt.

LOL! Nope, they certainly don't, do they? And I thank you for yours.

Hi, Gramma,

First, prayers for Logan and the family.

My daughter also was born three months early. You learn to pray a lot staying in the NICU for a few months. Please let them know that there is so much the doctors and staff can do now. Also, tell them to take advantage of the support system the hospital provides. The picture you posted gave me all kinds of flashbacks. I have some pictures that look just like that one.

It will be a long road. They will learn to hate the sounds of the alarms going off. (Gee, I can laugh about it now.) And they will find strength they never knew they had. Tell them never give up no matter what other people may say. Never give up.

My angel, whom many said would not make it, is one of the happiest and most active children around. She tests developmentally at two years ahead of her age. And she is my inspiration.

Tell them to always touch the baby even though they can't hold him yet. They know.

OK, now you've done it--I'm in tears :)

This reminds me of a prayer that my grandmother has in memory of my dad (who died on his 38th birthday 14 years ago next Wednesday) and his younger brother (gone for 5.5 years now). I always swore that my grandmother's faith has gotten her through burying two sons and many other ups and downs in her life.

My 5-year-old daughter thinks Logan is so beautiful (such a little pro-lifer already). But what baby isn't?

We pray the Almighty would
-touch Logan with health, that he may live long to praise Him,
-touch Logan's family with strength, that they grow with this test
-bring to the hospital staff an increase in skill and intelligence, so that Logan may have all the assistance possible
Finally, should the Lord find that Logan is to be in Heaven after all, the family will to learn to rejoice for his short journey here in this earth.

Holy Father,

You knew Logan even as he was formed in his mother's womb. Please accept our prayers for him, Lord. He needs Your strength within him. We ask that you would enable every cell, tissue, and organ in his body to be strong and to receive proper nourishment so that he can grow. Lord, though he is among the tiniest to survive, we ask even now that You would help him to grow into a mighty witness for you and that he would do wonderful works for Your Kingdom. Father, hold him in Your loving arms. Give his parents and family Your strength. Help Logan to feel Your love surrounding him. In the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

I have a Logan update from my friend....FOR ALL OF YOU!!

I can keep doing this, if you don't mind the ping.

First of all, I want to thank you ALL for the show of love you have for a complete stranger's baby. My friend (sheesh, I need to give her a name!) is not a Freeper, and is in awe over your response to this prayer request. So, thanks much!!

OK...here ya go. This was emailed to me a little bit ago.



Logan is doing great this evening. He has gained a little weight, is at 1 lb 8.4 oz... almost his birthweight. He is not longer on the ventalator, only in an oxygen forced isolette. They are increasing the amount of his mommy's milk that they give him every 3 hours to 13cc's. They have found a small hernia, but are not alarmed about it. They will take care of that later,..... down the road unless it becomes absolutely necessary. At the present time, they have reviewed his chart and consider him "stable". !!

Prayers do work miracles! The only great concern is that he might pop an infection, so they are watching him very close for that.

Please extend our thanks to ALL..... and ask that they continue to pray for him. He has a very long road ahead of him, but he's such a fighter.... they're even going to use him as a "premie poster child" in the hospital to give
others hope. Isn't that wonderful? It is a proven fact that anglo boy babies have the least chance of survival.... but little Logan is beating the odds
so far. The medical staff has marveled at how he's doing to date.

Prayers.... purely the power of prayer and the hands of those caring for him that has made this possible.

hello Gramma,

this one hits right at home for me; my son Andrew is but a week old today, and had some troubles for which I posted a prayer request here on Freep, and recieved a blessed response. Though born full term, Andrew was in the premature ICU ward - which afforded me the chance to see not just these "little" warriors (little only in size, but quite the fighters!), but the extraordinary degree of care shown by the medical staff. Truly, our Lord works through these wonderful souls, and for the children.

My prayers are with you and yours, please keep us posted.

God Bless,

Juan

"But what baby isn't?"

Right! Each a unique and unrepeatable Masterpiece from the Author of LIFE!

BTW-The words are a song from David Haas. Our Choir at Church leaves many misty-eyed with this one. You can hear it on-line at

It's a 1.35meg file but worth the wait IMO! Hint: Right click and save file to your hard drive.

We will be praying for Logan.

We spent several months in the NICU with our baby. They had a bulletin board covered with pictures of big healthy kids. Written on them were the weights of all these kids when they were babies. Many of them were between 700 to 10000 grams.
