Today was my first time meeting Omar and I must say underneath all the tubes and cables I could see a beautiful, small baby.
His grandma greeted us with many kisses as we entered his room. She was very happy to see us and told me to get closer to Omar’s bed, so I could hold his tiny hand. The three of us were standing around his bed and Denae and I started to pray for Omar’s life while stroking him softly. During the prayer I had the feeling that Omar calmed down and he enjoyed our prayers.
“You can pray for anything, and if you have faith you will receive it“ Mtt 21,22
Because we are able to pray whenever and wherever we want, we prayed for healing and blessing above his life. After a few minutes, a nurse came in and told me that he is doing good and they will try to extubate him as soon as he is awake. This news warmed my heart and I praised God for His action at all times.
After spending a little bit more time with Grandma and Omar we went on to another child, still hoping for Omar to wake up.
Georgia visited him a little bit later and then she could see how Omar is reacting to his grandma‘s voice by flattering his eyes. It is always so heartwarming to see and hear how the family talks to the baby. There is so much love in their words and I believe that this love is helping especially Omar today to wake up and to fight his sickness.
Let us pray for unending love for Omar and his grandma, that this love can give him strength for the extubation. We know this deep love only comes from God and my prayer is that Omar’s Grandma can experience this love through us.
