Prayer for Anna Erickson
Martha Erickson at her daughter's hospital bedside
Lord, our hearts break as we think of Anna Erickson today.
Life can change in a moment. Lord, you saw little Anna fall and hit her head in
Nairobi on Christmas Day. You watched her normally healthy body’s reaction to the head trauma.
You were with her in that pain. Now beautiful, vibrant, joyful Anna fights for
her life. Thank you that the doctors were able to remove the blood clot. Now we
pray for a miracle, Lord. We plead with you to restore activity to her brain
stem. We ask for total healing. We ask for protection and support for her
entire family as they keep vigil. Thank you for those rallying around the Ericksons in
prayer and encouragement around the world. We enter that prayer circle, joining
our hearts in faith and trust, asking you to restore Anna to her family. And we
treasure our loved ones, holding them close, realizing we can never take them
for granted. In Jesus’ trustworthy name we pray, amen.
