The Power of Prayer

Harper Stamps is three days old today, and she is a living example of the power of prayer.

She continues to improve, and the outpouring of compassion to her and her family has been an amazing thing to behold.

"We were able to meet with Harper's doctor today for the first time since she has been there. It was a very good meeting. He gave us a lot of details. It was very difficult for me to sit and listen to him talk about how sick my little baby is. Our families felt it was very positive but it was just scary for me. Basically it is a long and gradual process. They believe she got an infection which has caused the problems with her lungs. They think her heart and brain are both good. Very, very slowly - they are trying to get her off the oxygen that is supporting her lungs. They think ECMO is a final resort. We will most likely be here for weeks. Her numbers seem to improve little by little and we do have a lot of hope. She is critical but stable."

Please keep praying for them!

Prayer works! Harper is such a doll. I can't wait to see her progress and grow in HIS time. Kelly and Scott are such amazing people, and I am honored to be praying for them.
