Just a couple days after Christmas a sweet couple from my church found themselves in an unexpected situation. There precious baby Pono was born prematurely weighing only 2 lbs. Pono is a little warrior and has been fighting for the past 11 days as so many surround he and his family with prayers of faith to God who we know is in control.
In Pono's hospital room friends have started a prayer wall where many verses of the Bible have been written and displayed so Pono's parents can be encouraged and strengthened as they go through this challenging unexpected circumstance.
When I heard about the wall, I wanted to send a card and a banner to the hospital for them so that they would know that we were fighting with them in prayer asking God for his divine intervention.
The card was created with our stamp set called Strength and Prayers. I am so thankful we have a simple stamp set such as this so that we can create cards for moments like these to let people know that we are praying for them.
I also created this banner for Pono's wall of encouragement . I wanted this banner to serve as a reminder that God was with them. He is our ever present help in time of need.
I personalized the banner with Pono's name and used another stamp from the Strength and Prayers stamp set that has a beautiful verse from the Bible.
Just as this verse says, I pray that Pono and his family would feel God's presence surrounding them at this moment. I also pray that as all of us pray together they would feel the love and support from so many around the world who have heard about Pono and are praying for him today.
I recently read this quote that said, "Prayer is the most powerful weapon against trials, the most effective medicine against sickness and the most valuable gift to someone you love"
Thank you for the gift of your prayers for Pono.
