Urgent Prayer Request

There are some things that we just cannot understand. The hardest for me is seeing a child suffer....

Please join me and MANY others in praying for Lauren Nihei. She is 4 years old and was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor today. Her parents just learned of the tumor 2 weeks ago when Lauren was complaining of severe headaches. Today they were informed that Lauren had approximately 16 weeks to live. If her parents choose to try aggressive treatment, it could be 9 months. Lauren has a little sister, Marissa, who is 2 and her mom, Hillary, is 4 months pregnant. Please help us pray for a MIRACLE and that, above all else, God would be glorified and his will accomplished.

We serve an awesome God who is perfect, holy, and above all things of this world. I know that He has a plan for each of our lives...including Lauren, and it is a plan that will prosper us and not harm us. I don't know what that means for Lauren, or for any of us for that matter. But I do trust that His word is truth and that He sees the big picture when we cannot.


"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11


"As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:9

May the Lord bless you and keep you today!

Thank you for posting this. Lauren's father was my best friend growing up, and we are all praying for Lauren and her family. I have two kids as well -- just turned 3 and 2 -- and cannot imagine how difficult this must be.
