Pray for Stella

Please join me in praying for sweet little Stella and her family. Stella is almost 11 months old, and has a rare genetic disease, type 2 Gaucher's, for which there currently is no cure.

I grew up with Stella's mom, Kara, and her family has a special place in my heart. Kara and Dave have been faced with some very difficult decisions and have spent so much of their time in and out of hospitals, providing medical care for their little girl. My heart breaks for them. I can't stop thinking about Stella and all that her little body has already endured.

"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen." 
Ephesians 3:14-21
