Prayer Request for Mya!

Please pray for this darling little girl!
With permission, I'm sharing the emails we received from her Mommy.

Hello,
I'm not sure if this is something you normally do but I have to ask since I think our order for Mya's Lucy doll is coming up...I am begging everyone I know to pray for our baby Mya...She was sick last week with a very high fever, that is when I discovered a lump in her neck, last night my husband discovered more lumps going up the back of her neck. We are praying it is just her body fighting off this last sickness but if the lumps aren't gone in 2 weeks our doctor is testing to rule out Leukemia. I am a wreck! I was hoping that you could specifically pray while making her doll that she will be okay and her lumps will go away without the need of testing for such a horrible disease.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart,
Erika

Hello again,

Mya had an appointment today and there was a *bit* of good news...The lumps on her left side have gone down! She is not out of the woods just yet though. We have an appointment next Monday to see how they are doing and we will find out then if we will go ahead with the further testing, only we will be looking at Leukemia and Lyme's Disease as well. Our doctor was more optimistic today than last week though! She gave Mya a treatment today that will hopefully help everything drain also.Your thoughts and prayers are obviously working! Thanks be to God, He is good!Please continue to pray for Mya until this is all behind us and we find out everything is fine.

I know she is going to be okay!

Love,Erika

Hi,
There was no change in Mya's lumps from last week :(I was all ready to ask for the test now but after talking with our doctor today I decided to wait until her appointment on the 28th and if there is no change we will be referred out for testing.Please keep praying for Mya to be okay and perfectly healthy!!!

I'll keep you posted,

Erika

Mya's lumps are worse today. Keep in mind before reading the next part that we have not told the other kids anything about Mya's problem.This morning I heard Kasha singing a song to Ava...she sang these words: "it's okay, mommy and daddy are always with you, it's okay if some of our sisters die".I am a wreck, I asked her why she sang those words and she was teary eyed and said she didn't know.It is so scary!Even when I was pregnant with Mya, Kasha used to get scared and say "I don't want our baby to die", I would tell her that she isn't going to die, that she would soon be born and live with us and she will be your sister.I called our doctor today for a referral NOW, I can't wait any longer. *IF* Mya does need treatment this is precious time wasted.Please pray! Please pray that she is okay but also that the testing goes well, it can't be easy with a baby her age. Agree with me that Mya is healthy and this is just a fluke in Jesus' name!"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them." Matt: 18: 19-20I will keep you posted.

Much Love,

Erika

My heart is heavy....

What scripture says to do is what I ask us to do! That we all come together in the name of Jesus Christ, asking God for a healthy Mya. That the Lord will allow the doctors to know what has caused the lumps and that they will completely go away! Please pray for the peace that surpasses all understanding to fall on this family...knowing and TRUSTING that God WILL work all of this out to His glory!!

I will pass along any emails as I get them.

Much love! Tina

ps- If you feel God place it on your heart, please leave a comment. I think this sweet momma needs our encouragement. What scriptures come to your mind to share? Please let her know that you are praying for her baby girl!

I want them to know that I am praying for Mya. I have a baby girl that looks to be about the same age as Mya and my heart just aches for them. I pray that this sweet girl will be just fine.

Our daughter was sick just about 4 years ago, doctors were stumped, it's a scary place to be. Rest in the Lord, our only source of peace. The Lord works ALL things for Good to those who love and serve Him! Praying for your beautiful daughter and strength for you to get through this tough time. Love in Him.

Praying for Mya. Please Lord hold her in the palm of your hand and heal her sweet little body.

As a mom to a child that had Leukemia, I urge you to go for a blood test. My son was sick and our dr thought it was nothing but went ahead a did a CBC and his white count was extremely high. He was diagnosed with Leukemia that day.

I do not want to scare you, but first and foremost to encourage you to lean on the Lord. If her bloodtest came back normal than I would feel more confident on waiting it out. My son's Leukemia was caught early and God comepletely healed him. He is now 21 and just got married in January.

You and Mya are in my prayers.

Blessings,
Karen

Hello Erika,
Letting you know that you and Mya and the family are in our prayers.
A verse I'd like to share is
Isaiah 26:3 "YOU will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on YOU, because he trusts in YOU."
When we keep our minds focused on God, we will have that perfect peace that only He can give.
