7:30am Homburg - Praise!

7:30 AM Homburg, Germany (12:30am Tulsa,OK) - We have witnessed yet another miracle as the doctors have just informed us that Coleman is "quite stable". He was given many types of blood products through the night, but now is stablized. Belinda is going to sleep after hearing the news.

Coleman is still fighting - please stand with him.

  1. Father God - we rejoice with Eric and Belinda with this news and pray that Belinda and Eric will be deeply rested and restored after seeking much needed sleep. Father, continue to give wisdom to the doctors and healing to Coleman's body.

    But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions -- it is by grace you have been saved. And God rasied us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms with Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 4:4-7)

    Thank you Father God.

    Pray in the Spirit at all times with all kinds of prayers, asking for everything you need. To do this you must always be ready and never give up (Ephesians 6:18)

  9. We praise God because Coleman is fearfully and wonderfully made. All His works are wonderful, we know that full well. All the days ordained for Coleman were written in Your book, Father, before one of them came to be. How precious concerning Coleman are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If we were to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
    Father, we praise you for the work you are doing in Coleman's body. You alone are all-knowing, and yet your thoughts concerning each of us are too many for us to count. We are trusting in you for Coleman's healing, and resting in the knowledge that you love us more than we will ever understand.

    Eric, Belinda, Coleman, Emil, Heather, Erica, Haley, Jordan, and all,
    We are continuing to stand with you in prayer continuously. We love you.
    Keith and Alice

  10. Belinda,

    As you know, Mary Ann and I are studying the Psalms of Ascents and yesterday (Monday) we both concluded the study of Psalm 126 and we were both gripped by its message and are praying this for you and your family.

    Psalm 126 (The Message)
    A pilgrim song
    it seemed like a dream, too good to be true, when God returned Zion's exiles.
    We laughed, we sang, we couldn't believe our good fortune. We were the talk of the nations - "god was wonderful to them!"
    God was wonderful to us; we are one happy people.
    And now, God, do it again - bring rains to our drought-stricken lives
    So those who planted their crops in despair will shout hurrahs at the harvest,
    So those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessings.

    As I concluded yesterday's study I prayed that you and Eric who "went off [to Germany] with heavy hearts" will come "home laughing, with armloads of blessings."

    Christ is able!
    Love, Win

  11. Father, we praise you for this news as we wake up this morning. Keep Coleman strong as you provide the doctors time to figure out how to help him. You are the knower of all things, please reveal the answers to the doctors quickly. Give them wisdom and understanding. Wash peace and rest over Belinda and Eric today. Give them such joy in this victory. We praise you this morning and we depend on you to do your will in this young man. Father, we desperately request that you keep him with us and keep him strong. We love and adore you. In your Son's name, Amen.

  13. My prayers are with your family. I am a military spouse that lives near Homburg that was sent your site for a prayer request. My two year old daughter recently spent a month at Homburg hospital and I know how difficult this can be, being in a strange culture and away from home. I would like to offer my time and help to Eric and Belinda (and Coleman as he improves). Could someone please give me some contact information so that I can arrange to bring things such as groceries or anything else that they need. Please email me at Jenn_White75@hotmail.com

    Please know that you are in my prayers.

  15. Go Coleman go! Keep on fighting. "Never Never Never Never Give Up".

    With God all things are possible.

    Thank you Father for Coleman's life. We continue to ask you to heal his body and give strength to his family. Allow Eric and Belinda to rest while you restore Coleman's health.
    Through our Lord Jesus Christ we ask.

  19. Father we give you praise in all things! We are believing You are healing Coleman and bringing him home to His family and loved ones. Thank You for this good news. May Coleman's healing be complete, may it touch thousands of lives. I ask that even though the doctors be guided most delicately by Your hand, that they be be in awe by the end result, and only be able to say "This was a miracle of God!" Father please continue to give peace and strength to all of those concerned, and block any doubt and fear the enemy may attempt to insert in to anyone's thoughts...shore up their faith like never before and bring the victory home!

  20. This happened so the power of God could be seen in him” (John 9:3 NLT).
    When the storms of life come, your attitude should be, “God, I’m ready! I know You have something great in store! I refuse to live defeated and depressed. I know this difficulty is simply another opportunity for You to show Your goodness through me.”

    A Prayer for Today

    Heavenly Father, thank You for choosing to show Your glory and goodness through me. I choose to stand in faith, knowing that You are working all things out for my good. I bless You and thank You for Your faithfulness! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
    This is the daily word from Joel Osteen and its fits perfectly for your situation. Don't give up, God is working all things out for your good.
    Praise God! Love Christy Patton

  21. Praise and thanksgiving to the Lord!
    So many prayers, so many answers!

    Coleman, you are in my every thought, and I am still in constant conversation with the Lord on your behalf. There are sometimes no words, only the silent plea of my heart. You are blessed with the love of so many, yet the love of our Father for you surpasses even that. We cannot know what challenges tomorrow may bring for you and your illness-ravaged body. But we do know that whatever it may be, the Lord prepared for it in eternity past and will be there to take care of you. Keep fighting, kiddo! God's got your back! (and your front, and your sides, lol). Oh, and by the way, when we talked about you always craving the center of attention, THIS IS NOT WHAT I MEANT! :)

    Eric and Belinda, I am praying for your clarity of mind and calmness of heart as you face this difficult time without us around you physically. I pray that you can feel us in spirit. For it is the Spirit that binds us, one to the other.

    Emil, pray without ceasing. Only the Lord can give you the strength to get through this. Let His light shine through you.

    Jordan, your hope and positive light shine brightly. Let your love for Coleman and your faith in the Lord continue to impact those around you, as it already has.

    Lord, heal Coleman, and bring him through the valley of the shadow, whole and healthy and stronger in his faith because of it. Please bless him and those who love him and those who will be impacted by his story, with the miracle of health. And Lord, do not let us forget that our own health is a daily miracle we receive from you. Thank you.

  22. Thousands of people, believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, are gathered together in prayer this morning to praise and honor God, the God of all mercy, love, and grace. We can rest in Him.

    What we call great sadness,sorrow, and fear (like the israelites standing between the Sea and the enemy behind; and like the family of believers at the base of the cross) is just the beginning of God's blessings.

    All praise and glory to our God of all comfort and our Lord Jesus Christ who loved us and gave Himself for us. We continue to trust Him now and forever.

  23. Colman, your adopted family here at Exterran in Broken Arrow are praying for you and claim that you are going to be healed and come home to Jordan and lead a wonderful life. We can't wait for your return!

    Lord, we pray that you lay your healing hands on Colman and give him your strength to become fully healed. By Jesus' strips we claim this in your name! Amen.

  24. I must say I get nervous every time I get on to check this and had a warmth to my heart to hear this! Hang in there Coleman, I know you can beat this! Your family and friends want you to stay with us; we need you to stay with us. You gotta 'beat the odds' with Jordan, remember? You and your familiy are in my every thought. Let the good Lord continue giving you victory.

    Love you!

  25. Praise the Lord God Almighty! Thank You Lord for each and every miracle You are performing in and by Coleman's life. Thank You for bringing Coleman through yet another battle. It is so good to know that You are fighting right beside him and for him. How great Your love! Please give Belinda and Eric the peace and rest they so desperately need. Please renew, revitalize and strentghen them. Please lead the doctors to the treatment that is precisely correct for his entire body. Please expedite the courts approval for Eric to have procedural authority on Coleman's behalf. Please keep Coleman stable enough so that all essential tests and procedures can be accomplished.

  26. We rejoice with the news! The way in which God is moving through this circumstance to unite believers, to provide the gospel and to bring glory to our heavenly Father is incredible. What a humbling experience it is to stand with you before the throne of grace,to witness your dependence upon God and your willingness to be used by Him in this extraordinary way. "Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross". Your eyes are fixed on Him and the joy of what you are being used to build for eternity will be worth the current affliction. Standing with you before our Father,

  28. While this is a miracle in itself, I strongly believe that it shows us all that Coleman is fighting like the stubborn kid we know. He's not giving up on his life & he doesn't want any of us to. While (I'm sure I could speak for us all)we would all like to be by your bedside, Coleman, just know that we can't physically be there but we are all standing by you in spirit. You are an amazing kid who brings a smile to everyone's face & laughter no matter the mood. I've said it before & I'll say it again....you are a unique young man! The world would never be the same without you so keep fighting. You're a soldier!
