Presence of Prayer

                                                                 Presence of Prayer

Thursday, May 12, 2011
our granddaughter was admitted
to the hospital with MRSA. 
She was in horrible pain and
was running a very high fever.  The doctor said that
she would probably have to have surgery
 to remove the infection.

The presence of prayer began with a click of a button.
Whether it is was the click of a mouse on the computer
or the click of a buttons on the phone.

Our family and friends began praying and asking
others to pray.

Our granddaughter had people praying for her that
have never met her.  People were praying that have
never met my daughter or me for that matter.
Through the prayers of God's people,
my daughter and I had a sense of peace.
The doctors and nurses hands were guided.
The antibiotics started working and
surgery was not needed.
God was in control.
                           Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection
                                             is caused by a strain of staph bacteria
                                            that's become resistant to the antibiotics
                                     commonly used to treat ordinary staph infections.
                              This form, community-associated MRSA (CA-MRSA), often
                            begins as a painful skin boil. It's spread by skin-to-skin contact.

Ouch, poor baby.  This was quite painful for her.

This picture was taken when her fever was 104 degrees.

She barely moved on this day.

                                                 She was released from the hospital on 
Sunday, May 15, 2011, she is improving
everyday, thanks to much prayer and antibiotics.

Thank you Lord,
for showing me the presence of prayer
through this beautiful miracle.


  1. It's reminds me of Sunday when we sang "He's got the tiny little babies in His hand"...
    How do you keep from kissing those chubby cheeks all day? Adorable!

  2. Wow Kelly, so sorry your family went through this, but I'm glad you knew that you weren't alone and that prayers were going out for you. I'm glad to hear she's better. She's so stinking cute!!
