Please Pray for Joseph

Doctors here tell us that they think he has leukemia


For two weeks now Joseph has been fighting off a viral infection and that was joined by a bacterial infection. Today after several doctor visits we were sent to the emergency department of the children’s hospital here in Belfast. Joseph’s heart rate was very high and he had a high fever as well as other issues. After many tests they began to tell us that he had abnormal blood counts and white blood cells.

Now they are seeking to stabilize Joseph and hope to do a bone marrow test tomorrow. that test would be definitive.

In life or in death we and our children at the Lord’s. We know the Lord loves Joseph.

We are however reeling from the huge implications for Joseph and our family.

 We would ask that you pray for Joseph for the next 48 hours as we seek the Lord.

 You may share this prayer request with anyone who will pray.

  3. Dear Ed, Kate,
    The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. John 1:14

    The-God -with -us is a close God, a God who we call our refuge, our stronghold, our wisdom, our helper,our Shepherd, our Love.
    We will never really know God as a compassionate God if we do not understand with our hearts & minds that He lives among us.
    Praying for you & especially little Joseph as he continues such severe treatment such a brave little boy & thanking God that He has brought healing & helped him through his treatment this far.
    Thank you that through your updates It has been wonderful see God right in the centre of your lives, the strength of your faith is amazing.
