Please Continue Praying for Gabe

An update on Gabe...

Ben & Angie received a huge shock last night when they were told that their little guy does in fact have a heart condition. Gabe has Long QT Syndrome and will need to be on medication for life to help his heart from going into arrhythmia. They have been told that he will be able to lead a normal life but will need medication several times a day.

Please pray for these friends and their baby. Pray that God would give them grace to keep trusting in Him and resting in His perfect care for their son. Pray that Gabe would be able to leave the NICU soon and that his body would continue to do well with the medicine. Pray for rest in the midst of the weariness. And pray for wisdom for all the decisions that need to be made right now.

They are grateful for your prayers.

  1. When I was born, my mom was told that I would have to be on medication until I was 18 due to an imbalance in my blood or something like that. If I did not take it, I would not grow and would be dwarf-like...can you believe that?
    Well, I took it until I was around 5 years old and the docotor check me again and said that he'd never seen it before but that I didn't need the meds anymore. I am now 5'9" - the perfect height for my tall husband.
    We serve a God who is all about doing 'strange' things to confuse man and glorify Himself - I pray that this would be one of those times!
    Either way though, Angie...we trust that you know for a fact that God is good no matter what.
    You will be a great testimony for His glory in this, I am SURE.
    I love you! - Jessy

  3. Thank you, Christine. I emailed your information to our friends and then went ahead and took your post off to protect your email address. Thanks for caring!

  4. Katie,
    I woke this morning with this blog post in my mind. I don't read every day but I had seen this a while ago and today I felt like God was prompting me to come write, first thing.
    I often find that my heart is encouraged by the songs of my childhood, when the mountains of circumstance seem more than I can bear. Today the song I was singing (almost in my sleep) was He's Got the Whole World In His Hands...specifically the verse about the 'itty bitty babies, in His hand' kept resonating in my mind and I wanted to share with Angie and Ben. Colossians 1 is so sweet to remind us of the truth in this song, specifically vs. 17. Thank you for writing updates, so that even later God can use them. I am praying for your family also...that both families will cling to God for true rest, and encouragement.
    Thanks again, ~Erin
