Prayers for Jared

If you would like to pray for Jared, our new born son, Laura, Caryn (our daughter), and I would appreciate it very much. 

Yesterday, we took Jared to see the doctor because of a small cough that he had for a day.  As it turned out, Jared has RSV (Respiratory Syncytial Virus) and has been hospitalized since then.  At first it appeared to be very critical (which brought back memories of our first son dying) but Jared is now considered to be in good and stable condition.  He will not be allowed to leave the hospital until the virus is gone, so we have no idea how long his hospital stay will be.

There is a phrase that occurs several times in the Psalms that says something to the effect of “In my distress, I cried out to the Lord and the Lord heard me…”  We don’t know why times of distress, whatever they may be, come in life.  We do take comfort that God hears our cries in times of distress and is with us in such times.

Many prayers have already been lifted up to God on behalf of Jared.  We are thankful for each and everyone of these.  We are also thankful for the improving health of Jared as we know all to well that the outcome could be much different and with much more grief and sorrow.

  1. May God’s richest blessings be yours as you reflect on the extent of His love demonstrated through the death His Son on the cross and the awesomeness of His power exhibited through the resurrection.

    To God be the glory!

    Brother, you and the family have our prayers.

  3. Rex,
    I’m very sorry to hear of little Jared contracting RSV. My experience is that infants with RSV do well with the supportive care that’s available now in the hospital. Regardless, he’s in God’s hands- the Great Physician- who has the power to do all things. You are all in my prayers.
