Although today’s blog may seem like an ordinary blog writing, I am posting it as a means of prayer. It’s been written at the request of Erica, for her ten year old daughter, Arianna.
Yesterday on my birthday, I went to get a haircut. Erica has been cutting my hair for about a year now. She does a terrific job and when I sit down in the chair, I don’t need to say much, I know I will be in good hands.
Yesterday when I went to pay for my haircut, Erica said to me,
“Will you say a prayer for my daughter she is having heart surgery on Friday.”
“Of course, what kind of procedure is it?
“What is her name?” I asked.
“Oh, what a pretty name, ” I truly meant it.
“How old is she? ”
I wished Erica and Arianna all the best for a good outcome. Having just celebrated a birthday yesterday, I thought about all the people who had prayed for me and for my parents many, many decades ago when I was a seven year old having pioneering heart surgery. Had we not had the prayers of many supportive and loving people, I may never have made it to this landmark or even come close it it. Truly how blessed and grateful I am.
So, today, I’m reaching out to ask for prayers for Arianna and her mom Erica and for all people with little children who need prayers of the people.
