It is amazing to me how many prayers are offered each day. So far, through the birth of Levi, there have been thousands of prayers for him, and for us. I looked at the stats of the blog, and yesterday alone there were well over 1,000 different people who looked at our updates.
Coming on these trips, visiting Akron Children’s, and now meeting some of the other parents in the Special Care Nursery has made me awestruck at the power of God, and the amazing things that happen when God’s people pray. It breaks my heart as I see children that have no human advocate going to the throne for them. I pray that a believing nurse is sent to take care of them, that the other believers in the room will lift up these children, or that church groups in the area have adopted these kids (even if it is not by name) and placed them on their prayer list.
We are going to feed again in the next hour. Levi has two neighbors in the nursery, Evan and Lily. They are both pre-mature babies that are a little over 2 pounds each. They have a long stay ahead of them. Even if it is just through prayer, pray that we will continue to have opportunities to impact these families and point them to the God that is able to see them through these situations.

Dear Chas and Amy
Glad you and Levi are doing well. So thankful that God is giving you peace that he can only give. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Looking forward to seeing you soon. God bless you and your family.

You have made a powerful observation about the power of prayer. You have certainly been bathed in prayer these past several months, weeks, and days. It is my prayer that people continue to pray for you in the days, weeks, and months ahead. I have lifted Evan and Lily up to the Lord today. I hope others have too.
