Within seconds of entering the room, Rafif had stolen a place in my heart. Watching this little baby from the bedside, I was struck by how beautiful she was. In some ways it’s hard to take in, watching this precious little girl surrounded by tubes and monitors.
Outside, the doctor explained she has been reintubated because of her infection. My heart dropped a little at this – we were hoping for better news.
“For you created my inmost being;
You knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made”
It’s a times like this I need to be reminded of God’s immense power and unending love. He is there in every breath Rafif takes, she is fearfully and wonderfully made in his image, and he loves her deeply.
Please pray for Rafif and her family. Pray that the infection will not spread any further, pray that her condition will improve quickly and pray that the peace of God would surround her.
