Prayers for Jack Wesley

Filed under: Uncategorized — by andrewandtiffanyporter @ 4:11 pm

We write this to receive prayers for our sweet son Jack .  He is not developing like most babies his age are, so we have started to look into reasons why this might be happening.  We went to a Pediatric Opthamologist and his eyes were just fine.   This was a relief, but meant that we needed to move on.  We went  to see a Physiatrist at The Children’s Center yesterday and he also showed concern for Jack.  He showed the most concern for the fact that he is using his left hand predominantly and is not able to sit up on his own for very long.  After this appointment, we scheduled an MRI and will be doing physical therapy next week with Sooner Start.  Also, he has an appointment with a Pediatric Neurologist on April 15th.  

This is scary and the unknown is the hardest thing for us, but we are leaning on the Lord for answers and comfort.  We are on our knees praying for Jack and giving him to the Lord.  We prayed last night at his crib, “Lord, your will be done.”  It’s hard to pray this knowing that His will might be different from ours, but again, we know He sees the full picture, whereas we only see the present.  It is so obvious that the Lord is going to use Jack for something big…the Physiatrist was so touched by him yesterday.  He kept on telling me how Jack has the best personality and such a sweet spirit and how that would be huge in how he continues to work through this.  I have to agree, he has brought us so much joy the last 9 months…his smile is contagious! 

One last thing-last night Will prayed for Jack after we read in his Bible about Jesus healing touch.  He prayed, “Dear Jesus, please heal my bubba.  Please help him roll over and crawl like Lil Will’s sister.” Such a precious, powerful prayer from a three year old who happens to love his brother so much. 

Please pray for healing, wisdom for the doctors, and peace for us all.  Have a blessed Easter weekend as we celebrate the Risen and Mighty Savior! 

Tiffany and Andrew

  4. Love you all so much. Just read the message translation of Hebrews 4:15 “We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality…” Jesus is in this with you, and you are doing a great job of trusting Him with Jack. He is such a precious boy, and you are amazing parents. We are praying for Jack and for you as you walk through this.
