For our dear Thabet, we know that he is stable and still on a machine to help him breath and yet still with a virus affecting his lungs. This period of resting has been good for his body. Both his mum and his dad love him so much. I was praying for them over the weekend, that Jesus would bring restoration from this.
Today I heard a song with these lyrics:
“He heard my cries,
He bowed his ear and chased my griefs away
O let my heart no more despair
While I have breath, breath to pray
I love The Lord He chased my griefs away
Despair no more and use this breath to pray.”
This made me release that we should use our breath to pray, yes, but without despair. In this season of Lent, and with Good Friday approaching, we remember the suffering of our Lord, and the tears he cried for his sorrow was unto death. The humility and gentleness of Jesus chases our grief away, as He identifies with those who cry and suffer. We pray that He would heal Thabet’s body and mend the hearts of his beautiful parents. Lord use our breath to pray without despair, and chase our grief away. You hear our cries.
Thabet is a three year old boy from Hebron who has several complications. For now the doctors are looking at the issue of blood in his lungs and plan to do a procedure where they clean his lungs, hopefully this week or next.
He will be in and out of the hospital a lot while the doctors help with these many complications. He has a lovely mum and he loves to sit on her lap. Maybe its the only place for him where he feels safe and salvaged.
I became sad when I saw the tears in his mother’s eyes. I looked at this little man with all his difficult heart ailments. We don’t know what the Lord provides for him, but let’s trust Him for His healing Thabet.
