Nothing is impossible with sincere prayers. At times when it seems like no more hope is left, we should always remember the presence of the Lord and never hesitate to seek His presence. The miraculous story of a baby boy is a living proof of how strong the power of sincere prayer is.
A child is a blessing from God. When the mothers conceive, the couples’ happiness is immeasurable as their child becomes their whole world. Their love would transcend everything while all they ask for is for their child to live a healthy and happy life.
But at times, challenges come our way and things do not always go the way we want it to. Nothing could have prepared Casey and Jake for what they, and their newborn son, would have to go through.
Miraculous Story of a Baby Boy Who Defied Odds
Casey and Jake noticed that their two-day-old baby boy could not keep his food down. Casey explains the child, Hunter, could only finish about half an ounce of his formula when he should consume two ounces. The child would alarmingly throw up everything when he reaches over half an ounce of the formula or when pressure is applied to his stomach.
To figure out what is wrong with the newly born infant, Casey and Jake immediately brought the child to the hospital. The news that was delivered to them by the doctors crushed the world of Hunter’s parents.
A mass that is taking up two-thirds of the child’s stomach prevents him from eating. The doctors said it should be taken out immediately, or else Hunter would not survive through it.
He was immediately airlifted to the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver to start his life. Casey says she was “blown away” at the time as no one could “expect to see that in your baby that’s two days old.”
The Power of Prayer
The couple had done everything they could, but there is one more thing they need the most right now: prayer. They reached out to their families to ask for prayers, while their families also reached out to more people for support through prayers.
Casey’s brother even posted on Facebook for a prayer request which quickly proliferated on the social media platform. Meanwhile, Jake’s mother called CBN’s prayer center. All their efforts led to an “overwhelming” circle of prayers.
Before the night of the surgery, Casey was stunned to notice how Hunter was able to finish two ounces of his formula which he never did before. But with the knowledge of the child’s diagnosis, she did not let her hopes up.
Come morning, a doctor went into Hunter’s room with a strange look on her face after asking for the last MRI before the surgery. Casey and Jake were worried that something might have gone significantly wrong.
The doctor informed them that whatever it is they had previously seen on Hunter’s MRI results is no longer there. The mass found on previous medical tests is nowhere to be seen and Hunter is actually fine and in good shape.
Jake says the doctors could not offer any explanation behind it. But they did not need to. He knows “the Lord healed him.”
Now, Hunter is a “busy, healthy toddler.” This miraculous story of a baby boy has shown, not only to Casey and Jake but to everyone that “every single one of those prayers mattered.” Everything happens for a reason with the Lord and He will not forsake us as long as we surrender everything to Him.
