Pray for Ishmael

Written by: Sarah

Today I met a woman and her baby. She asked me to help her baby because he was sick. His name is Ishmael and he is 14 months old. He’s been sick about 1 month and he doesn’t have the energy to walk. She told me he has diarrhea and throws up a lot. I don’t have much experience with this kind of thing, but he looked pretty bad to me. She’s tried all the ‘local’ treatments and did start him 2 days ago on some type of medicine. I told her that I didn’t have medicine to give him, but that I would pray for him. I told her I was a Christian and would ask God to heal Ishmael. She did not want me to pray right then, but said she and her husband would come over tomorrow afternoon so that we can pray for them.

So I ask you all to join me in prayer for this family. Pray for Ishmael to get better and pray that we may be able to share the gospel with his family. Pray that they may hear the Word and turn to Christ.
