#PrepWithPurpose - August 31, 2016: Little James needs us .. again.

For backstory on what #PrepWithPurpose is all about please read the blog entry and/or Instagram Post.

Hey Friends,

I finally rested with a little peace of mind last night. Some stars aligned yesterday that helped me make my decision as to what show I'll do next! This is assuming when I go to the doctor on Friday for him to look at whatever pain this is/was in my leg is nothing serious. I haven't attempted to I am not even sure the issues is still going on ... Fingers crossed :-)  I always have motivation (well .. most days) .. but when I have a show to focus on I always get more hyped up! So I am excited!

Thankfully today Prep With Purpose is back just in time and I've got a "familiar" little face that will be my motivation.

Prep With Purpose - August 31, 2016: Little James needs us ... again.
 I don't typically do "follow ups" because if I did we would just keep lifting up and for the same people over and over again. There is nothing wrong with that at all and I hope that you DO continue to keep each person in your thoughts as time passes, but my hope is that we bring new people in each day! But as I mentioned yesterday... I'm getting low on people to lift up and for. I go ta few today .. but after that I'll be out again! So please SEND THEM MY WAY guys!! 

I got a message that one of our little ones that we lifted up and for a few days ago needs prayer more than ever.You may remember James. HERE is is FULL STORY. Please go read it. It is one of the most heartbreaking Prep With Purpose entries I have done to date. His moms blog really got to me. Her words have stuck with me. Today I lift up and for not only her sweet son .. but the entire family.

In short .. tiny little James has something called Trisomy 18. According to the Trisomy 18 Foundation - Trisomy 18, also known as Edwards syndrome, is a condition which is caused by a error in cell division, known as meiotic disjunction. When this happens,  instead of the normal pair, an extra chromosome 18 results (a triple) in the developing baby and disrupts the normal pattern of development in significant ways that can be life-threatening, even before birth. He was beating "medical odds" at first .. but now I am told that little James is in heart failure, and they found out that he is not a candidate for heart surgery because of his size, etc. The family has made the difficult decision to take James home for whatever time he has left. 

I ask that you join me in lifting up and for little James today. Let's ask God for a miracle and that he wrap his arms around his family during this horrible time. 

I want to continue this project/prayer chain. But I'm finding myself spending HOURS searching for people to "lift up and for" because I'm not getting any requests -- I know you guys have to know someone (or have heard of someone) with an ongoing or urgent need for physical healing?
Please send me all details possible, a pic if they don't mind sharing, etc.
