Please Pray

This is Emma with her daddy, Joel on Easter this year. Emma is very sick with a high fever that will not come down. Joel and April (Emma's mommy and daddy) are missionaries in Haiti and they are not anywhere near a hospital. Please keep Emma in your prayers.

Update 6/11/07: I just got word from Joel that Emma's fever has gone down and she is doing much better today. Thank you all for your prayers! Isn't God good?

Joel has asked me to ask all of you to pray for April. She has had a terrible migraine since yesterday and last night a fever was starting.

Please keep this precious family in your prayers.

In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we pray you God would hold Emma and her family close. Protect her body, mind, and spirit from this fever, and we ask you to break it. Give her parents peace, courage, and wisdom, particuarly in the care that they give her. Restore her to full health for the glory of your name. We entrust her to your every-loving and faithful care. Amen.
