4:00- Angie Is In Surgery

Angie just went into surgery. It is 4:00 central time. Audra will call me as soon as she is out, which is expected to be around 5:30. I will update you all as soon as I hear anything. I have chills and am trying to hold back tears as I write this. Please continue to pray, dear ones. We know that God hears them all and as the bible says, will work for the good of those who love Him. (Romans 8:28).

Prayerfully yours,
Jessica

    I was just introduced to this site today and have spent much of my time reading through the posts from the beginning. As I was reading I just realized it was 4:00 and Angie was probably in surgery. Oh how I pray for a miracle! I also pray for peace today that this family may endure whatever God may bring them.

    Can’t thank you enough for the timely posts. I think we all feel very connected to Angie and Audrey after all these weeks.

    Angie has some of the most devoted folks on Earth praying for the family and for little Audrey. I sense that one way or the other, our prayers will be answered.

    Iam lifting you all up and have been all day. It’s 4:11 central time right now. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling, but I pray that the peace that only our savior can give would outweigh all of the heartache. May God be glorified as hearts and lives are urned to him through the story of your precious “Audrey Caroline.”

    An unknown “friend” from Iowa is praying for the Smith family. Thank you Jess for being willing to keep us up to date as to how we can pray. I’m clinging right now to the meaning of Audrey’s name, “overcomer of many difficulties.” May the ultimate overcomer, or Savior Jesus, make his presence known in that operating room right now!

    I’m praying for a miracle. And, I am praying that the reality of God sitting in that room with them will be so clearly felt. And that they will understand and ever so deeply experience the compassion of our God. We know that He watched Jesus be crucified–and is no stranger to deep, heart-wrenching pain. I repeat…I’m praying, praying! for God to miraculously heal precious Audrey and for Him to do something utterly amazing thru this.

    Dear precious family of God. I have been praying for you constantly since a friend sent me the link to your blog. I have since forwarded it to many strong prayer warriors – including my best friend who went through this two years ago – April 4th. I was there with her and her husband – along with another friend and family members. In your own time, please lean on others – let them show you the face of God. In the coming days, may God’s peace find a way to your souls.
    Much love, from Arkansas
