4-year-old asks mall Santa to pray for ailing baby the boy has never met

Prestyn Barnette, 4, prays for Baby Knox with Santa at South Carolina mall (Rebekah Lauren Sharpe)

A 4-year-old South Carolina boy touched hearts around the world when he told a mall Santa that his Christmas wish list included Santa’s prayers for a baby on life support in Las Vegas.

Prestyn Barnette met Santa at the Dutch Square Mall in Columbia., S.C., a week ago. First, the shy little boy asked for a toy train. Then he asked St. Nick to pray for Baby Knox, a 2-month-old being kept alive on a respirator. Prestyn learned about the infant through his grandmother’s Facebook prayer group.

“Santa said we will pray now and he got down and prayed,” the grandmother Robin Sharpe told WIS-TV. “There were many bystanders there that day. They just stood some of them, just bowed their head and prayed.”

Prestyn’s aunt, Rebekah Lauren Sharpe, snapped a shot of the boy praying with Santa and posted it on Facebook. The photo went viral.

The family of Baby Knox Joseph sent out a request for prayers on Facebook after the newborn was found unresponsive in his crib on Nov. 30, the station reported. Knox had stopped breathing.

The family wrote on their GoFundMe page that doctors advised them to take the baby off life support, but the family decided to keep fighting, ABC’s New York affiliate reported Tuesday.

The family posted Rebekah Sharpe’s phot on its Team Knox Joseph Facebook page. The story has generated more than 1,300 likes and numerous comments.

“I seen this post on a friend’s timeline and I followed the link to your page,” one commenter, Margaret Massey Elmore, wrote. “I am praying for your precious little one Knox.”

Tuesday, according to WIS, Prestyn went to Build-A-Bear Workshop, creating a special gift for Knox.

“We wanted to send him something he can hear, feel and let him know we were there,” Rebekah Sharpe told the station.

Healing and God’s Protection from Kevin Greenfield

Dear Saints and Prayer Warriors, I humbly ask for your fervent prayer. I was a Federal Police captain for the U.S. DoD. My supervisors lied on me, and I was fired. Since then [he] they have oppressed me. Blocked my emails, stolen my mail, blocked cells calls, and has blocked potential employers for over 5 years. Their obsession to suppress the truth has been demonic. State sponsored harassment and terrorism. Recently, i have been poisoned. It caused my right side Kidney area to swell and a mass to grow in the stomach. I have been to the ER 4 times and have been refused treatment. So my bosses [Dobbins and Amorosso’s (at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Police department/ Battalion)] conspiracy to murder me runs deep. This is far more evil and satanic than thought before. Prior, they were many attempts to run me or my 70 year mother off the road. the criminal activity against me and my family is massive!! My request to the saints is that the Saints pray that the lord will public expose my harassers and bosses. That the Lord will deliver us from this evil harassment, to include restraining orders of protection. That we have Favor with Judges. That I have favor in court, victory, that I will be granted back federal employee status, my retirement and back pay returned to me immediately.

 

In the course of all of this, we had our home stolen by mortgage Fraudsters that took advantage. The lord restored Job in the bible. Please pray the same for us, that we will be restored completely, with a angelic hedge of protection from God himself that can’t be broken. Nahum 1:9. God Bless you all. Know that I am praying for you too. And God bless you for taking the time to read this long message.

Healing and Protection from Familiar Spirits from Kevin Greenfield

Dear Saints, please pray that my mother is healed from the top of head to soles of her feet. she was experiencing some bleeding. Pray that ALL her internal organs are healed by the Lord and restored to complete health. Lastly, please pray that her rightful inheritance is returned to her and that every penny the devil has stolen from her is returned with interest. Joel 2:25, “I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten…” and Isaiah 61:7,”Instead of shame there shall be a double portion: instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy. God Bless you…

Philippe Billard prayer request for a miracle

I would like to have support for the following prayer. Mom (Henriette Billard) who was 97 was hospitalized against her will for distort food roads The pneumology department did not accept her. The rhumatology department refused to keep her but transferred mom to the geriatric department.

 

Then a pneumonia of inhalation was discovered. Failing to treat it or to feed mom by oral route the hospital where mom was decided not to nourish her by any mean whatsoever and the hospital refused to let mom go back home until it was sure she would die.

 

Mom was authorized to come back home within a hospital at home (half a bulb of scopolamine was injected to her – I was said it was for her breathing comfort…) . She died 3 days later

 

Considering that every person has the right to be treated normally whatsoever their age and that there was an injustice of which mom was the victim which should repaired (Luke 18), I ask God in the name of Jesus Christ (John 14:13) to raise up mom from the deads for some extra high quality years of life because for God nothing is impossible (John 6:19, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27, Luke 1:37 (if mom would have died normally I would not ask prayers so that she may be raised up from the deads now).

 

Many thanks for those who accept to support me for this.prayer.

 

May God bless them.

 

Philippe Billard

Pray for them: Christian persecution at ‘biblical proportions’

660-Christians-Pakistan.jpg

Nov. 12, 2014: Pakistani Christians hold candles to pay tribute to a slain Christian couple in Lahore, Pakistan. Police in Pakistan said they have arrested as many as 45 Muslims in connection with the killing of the Christian couple for allegedly desecrating the Koran. Under Pakistan’s harsh blasphemy laws, anyone convicted of insulting Islam or the Prophet Muhammad can be sentenced to death. However, the laws are often misused to settle personal scores and target minorities. (AP Photo/K.M. Chaudary)

In recent months, stories of Christian persecution have seemed more like pages ripped from the Book of Exodus than modern-day news reports.

A Christian couple beaten to death and then burned in a kiln…more than 200 schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria … a mother forced to give birth in chains in Sudan … the mass exodus of families forced from their homes in Syria and Iraq, driven out by the brutality of ISIS … The violence and cruelty seem to know no bounds.

These don’t even take into account the untold stories of persecution happening in closed countries like North Korea. Kenneth Bae’s capture, imprisonment and then fortunate release only highlights the instability of the country and suppression of religion there. There is no question that millions of Christians around the world live in constant danger simply because of their choice of religion.

I urge you to not forget about those living without the rights you enjoy. Do not forget about those who fear for their lives simply because they own and read a Bible.

Recently, the world marked the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted. During Open Doors’ webcast to mark the occasion, my colleague Mike Gore from Open Doors Australia remarked that Christian persecution has reached “biblical proportions.” It was a frighteningly apt description.

Only 300,000 Christians or less remain in Iraq (in 2003 there were over one million Christians), with more fleeing monthly, and it is legitimately feared that none will be there by 2016. Syria has seen its own exodus, with so many Syrians fleeing their own country that one in every four persons in Lebanon is a now refugee, both Christian and non-Christian.

Christians in North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan fear for their lives simply because they are Christians. These countries topped the 2014 World Watch List of the most dangerous places for Christians to live.

As the January 7 release of the 2015 list nears, there is a tragic amount of competition for the ignominious top spot. We hope to see conditions improve in some of these countries, but we are not optimistic that anything has changed for the better in the last year. More likely, things have gotten worse.

So, what can we do? When we talk with persecuted, displaced and despondent Christians, their primary request is not for food, water or shelter, but for our prayer. Knowing that Christians in America have not forgotten them brings persecuted Christians desperately needed hope.

I recently returned from Egypt, where I met with Egyptian Christians to see how they were faring since the change in government. Many came up and welcomed me to their country — a very different reception from the one I received last January, when I witnessed gangs of Muslim Brotherhood supporters shooting and fighting in Tahrir Square.

Now Egyptians are walking and taking lunch there, a sign that the troubled nation is relaxing. But many churches still lie behind Jersey barriers and wire for protection. Since the overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood, hope is on the rise in this country, though there is still a long way to go.

I urge you to not forget about those living without the rights you enjoy. Do not forget about those who fear for their lives simply because they own and read a Bible. Do not forget about those who have watched their children die simply because of their faith. Remember and pray for them.

The rise of Islamist extremism and the ongoing suppression of faith by communist regimes continue to drive persecution of Christians and other religious groups.

For far too long, much of the free world has done little to oppose the persecution of Christians. It is time for those of us who are living with the blessing of freedom of religion to advocate for those who are not.

 

David Curry is the President of Open Doors USA. For nearly 60 years, Open Doors has worked in the world’s most oppressive countries, empowering Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs. Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world. Each year, Open Doors releases itsWorld Watch List, a ranking of the 50 countries where Christian persecution is worst.

After 60 years, I Came to Really Know My Dad On November 20, 2012

I know every guy’s Dad is special, and of course, I’ve known my Dad all my life and have always loved him.  Dad’s 85 and in a single day, at 60 years old,  I came to know he has qualities I have never really understood or appreciated.

I had always known he had been an All American football player in college 67 years ago.  It was part of family history, but of course before my time, so I can’t say I ever thought about that deeply or much considered the meaning of that achievement.  At the most difficult of times I was blessed to be given a deeper understanding of my Dad.  I finally met the football player of 67 years ago.  I saw inside the soul of a champion.

From Broken Leg To Brain Tumor To Chemo

To Rehab To a Day at Home

On May 11th Dad broke his right leg, which led to a titanium rod insertion.  The broken leg also led to an MRI, which led to suspicion of a tumor on June 7th, a brain biopsy on June 9th, which led to confirmation of a central nervous system lymphoma on June 17th, which led to 8 chemo treatments in June & July, which led to rehab August, September & October.  Follow up brain scans in late September had shown great success in tumor reduction from the chemo. He finally got home on Halloween. It was for a single day.

Renewed Symptoms 

and Return to Hospital

He was back in the hospital November 1st.  Symptoms aroused suspicions that despite the chemo’s apparent success the tumor had resumed its growth.  I flew up to Chicago from Florida as Dad began radiation treatments.  On the third day of radiation he experienced significant weakness, which doctors thought was an adverse reaction to the radiation.

There was, however, something else going on.  Dad’s a tough guy and through the last six months when asked how he felt, he would always say great, when it was obviously not true.  On the third day of radiation, just moving the sheet on the hospital bed caused a pained look on his face, and the source of pain was his left knee, which was beginning to swell.

Treatment for Knee Pain but No Relief 

An orthopedic consult led to a cortisone/Novocain shot in the left knee.  He got no relief, though this was not evident by his directly expressing continued pain. Any movement, however slight, of the bed, of the sheet and it became apparent there was excruciating pain emanating from his knee.  A pained look, a low muffled moan were the signs, though Dad would not directly verbalize the extent of his distress.

There is more to this story, but on Wednesday, November 14, his temperature rose to 103 and his blood pressure dropped precipitously.  The oncologist still believed it was the tumor (when you show a guy with a hammer a problem, he always thinks the solution is nails), despite insistence that the problem is the left knee.  At this point, Dad had been barely able to move for 10 days, and his rehab from the original broken right leg and rounds of chemo was far from complete.  He was physically drained from his six month ordeal.

Source of Problem: Knee Infection Caused by Serratia Marcescens

At about 9:45, while Dad’s fever is raging and the blood pressure dropping to dangerous levels, finally, an orthopedic surgeon (at the family’s insistence) came and aspirated fluid from Dad’s knee.  You could see the vial fill with pus, and hear audible gasps from the other personnel in the room as I held Dad’s hand while the needle was in his knee.  The knee was septic.

The next day, November 15th, after six months of broken leg rehab and difficult cancer treatment, (and the night before in ICU due to the fever and blood pressure) Dad had knee surgery to clean out the infection, which blood cultures now show was not only in his knee, but was systemic.

The surgery was on Thursday.  He spent the next three days in ICU.  During those three days, the fluid from his knee was cultured for bacteria, and the source of the sepsis was identified as serratia marcescens, a nosocomial infection. (He began receiving IV antibiotics for the now identified bacteria, potentially treatable with several antibiotics, but there are also antibiotic resistant strains. )

Transferred from ICU to Medical Oncology Floor

Agrees to Battle Infection and Cancer

On Monday, November 19th, after the post operative days in ICU Dad moved to the oncology floor.  The surgical pressure dressing came off, but Dad still had great pain.  That evening, we watched the Bears and had a long talk about the recent turn of events.   We talked about the infection, the ordeal of the past six months and the upcoming plan for treatment.

He agreed to beat back this infection that was the source of such anguish, and when that was done, take another shot at radiation, another shot at the cancer. This talk was a preview of what was to come.

The Plan in Place

The Soul of a Champion Shows Itself

Super DadOn Tuesday, November 20th,  for the first time since November 7th, Dad’s leg could be touched without causing him anguish, still discomfort, but not anguish.

Through this ordeal, much of Dad’s physical strength has left him, and all the treatments have had their own side effects, but now the knee was less tender, and the gauze and ace bandage removed.  His left leg still had remnants of gauze in kind of a filmy coating on it, but since it could be touched, I asked if I could clean that up a bit.  He nodded assent.

I wiped off the top of his leg on the thigh above and calf below the 2 inch incision from the surgery.  As I did, I could tell there was more of the filmy gauze remnant underneath.  I asked if I could lift his leg to clean off underneath.  He again nodded assent (his voice is weak from the ordeal).

I gingerly lifted the left leg to get at the back side of the calf.  Dad grimaced a bit, and grasped the bedside.  I looked at him, and asked with my eyes if I should continue.  He nodded yes.

Then he said: “Higher”.  I looked at him incredulously, and he repeated the order. (I had been advised by the doctors earlier that the stitches were not to be a reason to restrict movement).  I lifted the leg an inch or two more.  I could feel his effort to assist, and he grabbed the bedside tighter, looked at me and said: “More”.

The leg went higher, and now it bent at the knee (which has severe arthritis and is the source of pain when not infected or wounded by recent surgery).  He grimaced and grit his teeth.  His grip on the mattress tightened.  He let out a groan, not a groan of pain, but rather the groan of a champion on a mission, like an Olympic weight lifter trying to lift the extra pound.

Now the still swollen, stitched up leg was bent with the knee approaching his chest.  I saw the grimace and heard the groan and looked at him, again asking with my eyes how to proceed.  He gave me a yes nod, and we moved the leg up more, he let out a deep breath, and I took that as a sign to lower his leg.

I gently got his leg down on the pillow.  Dad’s next word to me was:  “Again”.

We did it five more times, and then I asked about the right leg, the one with the rod in it that had been broken in May. He said: “Go for it.”

It was the same ordeal, the same determined look, the same grunt of effort, with the same result, the right leg lifting and bending and nearly up to his chest.  He sent me back to the left leg.  We began alternating from left leg to right leg in sets of ten lifts.

On the third set, I interrupted to get myself a drink of water (Dad’s a big guy; I was getting a work out as well).  Somehow his voice was now stronger.  He commanded: “What are you doing? Don’t stop now!”

I put aside my thoughts of taking a break, and we did two more sets of ten on each side.  He grimaced and groaned through those next forty leg lifts, but was determined to work on restoring strength to those legs.  He wants to get out of bed on his own. He told me he wants to walk out of the hospital. Dad’s commitment to battle the night before during the Bears game came from the depth of his soul.


I Met The All American Football Player

That is My Dad

 

Dad football from FBI have known my Dad to be a persistent individual.  His persistence has always been quiet and gentle for a big guy with a football and naval background.  He’s worked hard, but always without fanfare.  On this day, I saw fortitude, grit and determination that I had not truly appreciated in the man I have loved my whole life.  Today, I met the All American football player of 67 years ago. I came to know the depth of his inner strength, and if possible came to love him even more.
