Need prayers for new-born great-grandson, Raphael

Dear internet friends,                                                                                                                            Our great-grandson, Raphael, was just born  about mid-day on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, USA time,after a very prolonged delivery. He was not breathing when born, but was given CPR and is breathing on his own, but in a ventilator tent. I’m not sure how long he wasn’t breathing. Please pray for him and his parents: Josh and Paula, and his grand parents, Julie, Scott and Juana.

  1. Prayers for your sweet darling and congratulations. God will see you all through.

  2. Prayers flying his way>>>>>

  3. Dear Raphael and Family, Kia Kaha, and Aroha Nui, from far Christchurch.

  4. I am so sorry for your great-grandson’s difficult birth. He is in my prayers, as are you and your family.

    • Thanks so much. He is still on a ventilator, so prayers mean a lot to me, I don’t understand prayer, but it seems like we are partners
      with God and each other while we are stumbling along here and prayer brings us together in a rather profound way.

  5. How is the little one today?

    • I haven’t heard anything. He was still on a ventilator yesterday and they were going to do brain
      scans. I am getting news through my daughter who lives in Memphis, TN and is trying to fly to North Carolina
      where they live. I did get another photo through her and he looked like he didn’t have as many tubes. He
      is full term, but it was a long labor and a difficult birth. Thank you so much for your caring and prayers.
