Urgent Update 8:30 PM

Urgent Update 8:30 PM

The doctor has again informed us that Coleman's condition is worse than last night. His blood pressure and lungs are the main focus of treatment and should the current treatment protocols in these areas fail, they have no other medical options.

Though the doctor on duty is again very frank - I told him the same thing I've told them each night - don't give up on that boy. His simple reply "never" says it all.

Please continue in prayer for Coleman.


  1. We are praying, Eric. We won't give up either. Love you.

  2. Lord please be with coleman at this time! He is crying for your help and needs you dearly right now! You can do this lord you can do this.

    Come on Coleman! Hang in there you got this all the way!!! Im not giving up faith, not now, not EVER!!!!
    I cant express enough how much we all need youuuu!!!

    I love you SOO much, Never forget that coleman.
    BESTFRIENDS for LIFEEEEE. Nothing will ever change that.

    <3. Twitch (Jessica)

  3. Father God - We cry out to You, not because You are our only hope, but because You love Coleman (and his family and the rest of us). We have only the tortured groans of those in deep pain and we seek You and Your comfort.

    Lord we pray for Coleman's blood pressure to stablize. We pray that the fluid in his lungs will drain and allow the lungs to work as you have designed them to and bring plenty of oxygen to his body. Lord the body you created is one of great mystery, but not to You. You know the hows and whys of each cell and organ.

    Give the doctors and medical staff great wisdom and clarity as they treat Coleman.

    Give Eric and Belinda strength for these minutes that seem like hours. Lord strengthen our faith as we wait upon You.

    Lord you tell us in Romans 12 that Your plan is "good, pleasing, and perfect." Help us to trust You and your plan. Lord the deep desires of our heart is that this plan includes Coleman here with us for many years to come.

    In Christ's name I pray.

  4. God has a plan. This boy is such a fighter, I have all of the faith in the world that he is our Christmas Miracle, just waiting to shine through. The town of Coweta may be small, but it has a HUGE heart and everyone here has not stopped praying for him.

    Keeping the Faith,
    Skylar French & Family

  5. many students here at TU and who knows where else continue to pray!

  6. Keep fighting Coleman! We're all here praying for you and rooting you on.

  7. Keep on fighting Coleman! Stay strong. We need you and we're here for you! You got this baby!


  8. You will get through this Coleman people all over the world are praying for you! Stay strong and keep fighting! Lord I beg for you to heal colemans lungs so they function and provide sufficient oxygen as you have designed them. I pray for his blood pressure to stabilize and let peace pour over Belinda and Eric.

  9. Danielle and Cory KappleDecember 16, 2008 at 2:00 PM

    Eric & Belinda, we will never give up on coleman or the Lord's capabilities. We are praying, praying, praying for a miracle. Stay strong. Please let Coleman know again how strong he is and what an incredible fighter! Our prayers will keep going up.

  10. We havent stopped praying Coleman. Please stay strong and keep fighting.

    Dear God, I pray that you will lay your healing hand on Coleman and ease the aching hearts of those he knows and Loves. Please give him strengh and endurance to carry on and come back to us. Please give his parents strengh, comfort and ease the pain and grief they have in thier hearts.

  11. Coleman,
    Keeping on fighting buddy!
    Keeping Coleman, Jordan, Belinda, Eric, Emil, Debbie& Mike in our prayers!!

  12. My saintly Grandmother claims this Scripture when someone is bleeding:
    Eze 16:6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.
    When my daughter's birthmother was hemorraging after birth, I plead this Scripture on her behalf in Jesus' name and the bleeding stopped. God's Word is LIFE! Monica (TN)

  13. Father Our hearts are steadfast in You! We are asking for all options to work to the fullest extent in helping Coleman. May he progress today more than he has in all the other days combined, and from this day forward begin to, each day, heal more than anyone can believe. Father, give the doctors insight and direction. Please give Eric and Belinda strength of heart and peace beyond all their understanding...and bless all those back home who love them all so dearly. We lift them all high into Your hands...In Christ's Precious Name...

  14. Dear God, You are our strong fortress, our refuge in times of trouble. (Ps 59:16) We run to you, our fortress! I lift up Coleman to you - may you restore him to perfect health, all to Your glory. May you be with the doctors and nurses who are attending to him. Please work through their hands and guide them. Please also be with Coleman's family and friends. Let them and Coleman feel your presence, peace and comfort. Amen

  15. do NOT give up hope stay strong and keep fighting still praying kaitlyn pulay

  16. Dearest Belinda, Eric & Coleman,
    I only have the same words as I have had so many times before. I love you all so very much. My heart is breaking with every struggle and joyous with every success you are facing. You are in my thoughts and prayers with every moment that passes. We are all learning new lessons daily about prayer with ceasing in your behalf.
    Belinda, you are always claiming to be the #1 favorite daughter. Well I can confidently say that right now you are #1 favorite daughter, sister, mother, neighbor and friend to so many right now.

    Lord I pray that Your healing power is still working a miracle through Coleman. I pray that You are walking beside when he has the strength and carrying him when he does not. I pray that You will comfort, protect and give peace to Belinda, Eric and all of Coleman’s family and loved ones. We thank You Lord for all the love and mercy You have bestowed on them through this struggle and ask that You please continue to help them in their hour of need. I pray all these things in Your most holy name. Thank You Jesus.

  17. heavenly father we are in awe of you. We know that you are the only one who has the answers. We pray for healing in Colemans body. Let him have all the oxygen he needs, and heal this young mans body. We know that you are capable of such miracles. Please give peace and strength to belinda and eric. Your word tells us that your are our provider. We are looking to you Lord for answers here. Please give the doctors wisdom when treating this young man. What a special gift you gave to us so many years ago when you gave us your only son, so that we would have healing in this world as we know it. We know the stripes that your son bear just for us. Please father lay your hands on this young man and give him life, it is Jesus name I pray.


  18. Thank you God for Doctors with a never give-up attitude, and fathers like Eric who know their children's resolve. Give them all strenght and encouragement. I pray for Colemen, Eric and Belinda.
    We All Love You Very Much, know that we are there with you in our spirit and with our prayers.
    Uncle Scott

  19. Coleman...
    Oh how much faith and love everyone has for you.
    It's amazing how precious you truly are to every one of us.

    God please be with Coleman and his family. Give them all strength to continue. Please open Coleman's lungs and clear them of fluid allowing him to breathe. He needs you so desperately. We are on our knees begging for you.
    Lord, be with all of us in our time of need.

    Coleman - As long as you're breathing and fighting, I'll keep praying. Know that my family & i love you sooo much.
    Best friends always.


  20. Our hearts are with you, Fish.

    We're all praying for you, Brother.

    Please hang in there for us.

    We need you.

  21. Father, the doctors may think they have run out of options, but you can prove them wrong. Show them a miracle today.

    We will never give up!

  22. Belinda, Eric, Coleman and Emil...

    My children and I were studying James together just a bit ago, and we were picking this verse apart. There is such promise in this verse. I pray it brings you much comfort right now.

    What an awesome thing to know and take refuge in the fact that the Lord has promised the crown of life to those who love Him!

    We all have a front row seat, watching as you are persevering under this trial. What a joy to know that each one of you will be approved..each one of you will receive the crown of life one day!

    We love you,

    James 1:12 Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which {the Lord} has promised to those who love Him.

  23. We are continuing to pray from Kentucky.
    God bless your sweet heart Coleman.
    God bless you Eric and Belinda and each and every one of your family members.
    God grant you the strength to endure whatever comes your way.
    Continued love and prayers. KIM M

  25. Almighty Father, we praise you for Coleman's life. We lift him and his family up to You and ask You to heal him miraculously, just as You have shown us that You are able to do in Your word. We believe You are able and we ask You to be willing. We ask in Your Son's Precious Name.

  26. Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals - We humbly come before you bringing this family and their beloved son to You. You are the author of life and you hold Coleman's physical life in Your hands. You know the plans You have for this young man and we thank You that you know the end from the beginning. Thank You that Your perfect will will be done and in the process Holy Father, increase the faith of this family. As they have placed their faith and hope in You for eternal life, we plead for the life of Coleman. May You be glorified in all of this. May people far and wide know that You are in control.

  27. My family is continually in prayer for Coleman. When I had cancer I was a lost soul. God not only preserved my body but he also gave me eternal life by His side. This Psalm gave me much strength during that time of trial. I know Coleman's situation is different but this Psalm reveals the power of God to heal body and soul.

    Psalm 30
    1 A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David. I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.
    2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.
    3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
    4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
    5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
    6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.
    7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
    8 I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.
    9 What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?
    10 Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.
    11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
    12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

  28. Dear God,

    Please let Mr. Coleman be alive at Christmas Day. And Lord, I wish, I mean please, spare his life.


    Mr. Coleman...
    Thank you so much for serving our country. So much! You're a brave man. Thank you.

  29. Dear Coleman & family,
    I know it is by no mistake that I am going through an awesome Isaiah study (Precept Upon Precept, of course)& I knew exactly what scripture I was suppose to send you. I have been lifting you all up in prayer & I will continue to do so. God bless you all!

    Love, Kim

    Isa.38:1-5 In those days Hezekiah became mortally ill. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him and said to him, "Thus says the LORD, 'Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.'" 2 Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD, 3 and said, "Remember now, O LORD, I beseech You, how I have walked before You in truth and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in Your sight." And Hezekiah wept bitterly. 4 Then the word of the LORD came to Isaiah, saying, 5 "Go and say to Hezekiah, 'Thus says the LORD, the God of your father David, "I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; behold, I will add fifteen years to your life.

  30. I am praying for Coleman and your family. I've asked God to have mercy on Coleman. God is the maker of heaven and earth and nothing is impossible for Him. Touch him Lord, You are Jehovah Rapha, the Lord our healer so we pray that you touch Coleman with your healing power. We praise you Father maker of heaven and earth for with you nothing is too difficult. You knit Coleman in his mother's womb so Father we ask you to knit him back together again and cause his body to function again as you designed it. May You be glorified as a result of what you will do. May your Name be honored.
    In Jesus Name,

  31. Never give up Coleman. Our Lord and Savior knows your need.

    Please Father, God, you are the great physician. Your power is awesome, You are awesome! Heal Coleman and I pray that his family and friends feel your loving arms and are in the shelter of His wings.

  32. come on baby..you can do this!!!

  33. Coleman,
    Even though I don't know you or your family,
    we are one in the Body of Christ and I have
    been honored to be a part of the many who are
    praying for you. God is holding you and your
    family in the palm of his hand--may you all
    sense this strongly.
    With love and continued prayers,

  37. You are in my thoughts and prayers each day Coleman! We're all waiting for a Christmas miracle!!

    Cindy Pierce (Espejo)

  38. You don't know me but God knows you and He will give you the strength you need. I pray that God will put a hedge of healing around you and touch your body from head to toe.

    God hear our prayer of healing for our brother in Christ. I pray for the family that stands beside him that you will give them strength and be with them.

    Give the doctors the knowledge and the power to do what needs to be done to help Coleman. I pray this in YOUR HOLY NAME! AMEN!!!

    Love to you all in Christ,

  43. Heavenly Father,
    We thank you that we may approach your throne of grace with boldness. We ask Lord that you deliver your healing touch to Coleman's body. Breathe life into his lungs, healing to his liver, and cleanse his body of all sickness. Please Lord cover this family with your strength and be their cleft in the rock.
    We are asking Lord that you be beside Coleman to calm him, and comfort him through this storm.
    And Father, we shall not forget to give youall the glory and thanks for this miracle.
    Be with the Drs and make clear that what is confounding, guide their minds, their hands, and their hearts.
    Be with the family Lord and break down any obstacles against their spending time with their son. Hold them close, give them supernatural strength.
    Lord we love you , we are grateful that we can turn to you and let you take this burden. Thank you Lord,

  44. We are praying Eric & Belinda. God is working. We will not, no never, give up on Coleman and our Father's love, grace, and power. Standing firm in Houston.

  45. Louis, Connie, Kyle, Sam and Louis Jr.December 16, 2008 at 4:56 PM

    Stay strong God is there with you! We keep on praying! We keep on sending our love to you and your family..

    I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Psalms 16:8

  46. Lord, Be with Coleman as he fights. Give him comfort, and may You ahve a special relationship with him now that none of us could comprehend. May You pour out a double portion of your compassion, comfort, mercy and grace on Eric and Belinda as they watch their son, Your child. Our desire is that You restore Coleman in a way that astounds all those watching. We thank You for the many answered prayers, and for the much needed and much appreciated encouragement from fellow believers. We place our trust in You, knowing Your will is good and right.

    Eric & Belinda - we stand firmly with you in spirit and in prayer.

    Psalm 40:1-5

    I waited patiently for the LORD,
    and He turned to me and heard my cry for help.

    He brought me up from a desolate pit,
    out of the muddy clay,
    and set my feet on a rock,
    making my steps secure.

    He put a new song in my mouth,
    a hymn of praise to our God.
    Many will see and fear,
    and put their trust in the LORD.

    How happy is the man
    who has put his trust in the LORD
    and has not turned to the proud
    or to those who run after lies!

    LORD my God, You have done many things—
    Your wonderful works and Your plans for us;
    none can compare with You.
    If I were to report and speak [of them],
    they are more than can be told.

  47. Come on C-Man! Prove to the Doctor's that your faith is stronger than any medicine! Be the Christmas Miracle your family, friends and total strangers need! It is your time to shine, so let's see God work through you so you can shine your light back on the world! I know there is a reason you have to go through this, and by what I am reading on your posts, you are touching total strangers, and only you would allow God to use you in such a unique way!

    Strangely enough the words above bring me back to our church play and the words to the song you had to sing,

    "We are a family whose hearts are blazing
    So let's raise our candles and light up the sky
    Praying to our Father, in the name of Jesus
    Make us a beacon in darkest times

    Carry your candle, run to the darkness
    Seek out the helpless, deceived and poor
    Hold out your candle for all to see it
    Take your candle, and go light your world"

    Come on C-Man...you have a whole world to light!!

  48. Robin(Twitch&#39;s mom)December 16, 2008 at 5:27 PM


    You have got to stay strong and keep fighting, hold on Sweetheart!

    We are not giving up on you. Please dear god we ask that you take authority
    over Coleman’s body and remove the excess fluid from his abdomen and lungs to allow him to breathe easy. We also ask that you take control over his blood pressure to keep it stabilized for a faster recovery. This young man needs you now more than ever!

    Please wrap your arms around Coleman & his entire family, HOLD THEM TIGHTLY AND EMBRACE THEM WITH YOUR LOVE! Lord, we lift you up and glorify your name.

    We will continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Love You All!!

    Twitchell Family

  49. Coleman,

    I went to Summit with you and you are a very sweet kid, you can do it i have faith in you! Im praying for you!!! Danielle Giles

  50. Coleman, we love you! We are praying for you! You are all we want for Christmas! Please come home to us!

  51. Just know prayers are being said by God's children for Coleman and you all sitting by his side and everyone else who knows him.
    Obviously the world has been blessed by Coleman being here. My prayers are that he will be walking off a plane in Tulsa in the future.

  52. Jesus we know that your word says that we should ask for your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. We know there is no sickness or disease in heaven. So, Jesus we ask for your will to be done in Coleman's life here on earth as it is in heaven. We command all these sicknesses to leave his body immediately --the Leukemia, the VOD, the liver failure, the fluid in his lungs, the bleeding and any other illnesses we have not named. We say you must leave Coleman now. We also command that he would not just recover from this, but that he would be healed as if it had never happened. We ask for perfect health for Coleman and that there not even be side effects from all the medications he has been given. Jesus we know you died for us. We know you have power over all things and your power is greater than anything that can come against us here on earth. So, do your will Jesus. We know you have good plans for Coleman and we will not stop asking until he is healed and healthy and whole. We thank you Jesus ahead of time for the amazing testimony of your love and power Coleman will display. Amen

    I really felt like God was saying yesterday that Coleman's name is significant. He is like a Coleman camping lantern--able to take a beating while shining out the light of Jesus. The circumstances around him do not affect the light inside him because it comes from Jesus. Coleman camping lanterns are portable--you can take them where you need them--to wherever there is darkness. This is pleasing to God and Coleman will take the light of Jesus to many nations.

  53. "For I know the plans that I have for you declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found by you, declares the Lord." Jeremiah 29:11-13
    We do not know the plan but we know that it is for good and that God is receiving the glory each moment. We are continually calling upon God and praying and searching. The prayers continue. We love you all! Laura & Bryan

  54. To,coleman and family

  57. Hey Coleman,

  58. Dear Lord,
    We come to You begging that the life of this young man would be spared. Thank you for one more day of life. Please Lord give this young man many more days of life on this earth that he might be able to praise and glorify You here and provide a witness to this lost and dying world that Jesus Christ is still alive and doing miracles even now 2000 years after You died on the cross. Father, please give Coleman's lungs strenght to breath and stop the rising of the fluids. Please Lord heal every organ so that they again function normally. We pray in complete agreement for complete and total healing from the crown of Coleman's head to soles of his feet. Please sent your angels to watch over Coleman and to guard him safely through one more night. Jesus Christ's name we pray. Amen.

  59. I don't know you or your family, but all of you will be in my prayers. God Bless you

  60. Keep fighting Coleman. You have become a light that is shining literally around the world. God is accomplishing mighty things in the midst of this storm. We continue to pray without ceasing. I now understand what that really means.

    Please Father, give Coleman the strength to keep fighting and Eric and Belinda peace beyond all understanding. We know your love never fails and we will continue to trust you with our most treasured gifts - friends and loved ones.

    We love you.
    Bob and Diane

  62. I don't know you but we are joined by our love for our Savior Jesus. I'm sitting in Kauai asking our Lord to heal your body and give peace to your spirit. Our God IS an Awesome God. Creator of all. All powerful. He is in control. Father God, we humbly come before you asking that you heal this young man. That you give peace and strength to him and to his family. We ask Lord Jesus that you continue to be glorified in and through Coleman and his family. That the doctors are equipped with all the wisdom and knowledge needed to help this young man. We ask for your love to be felt as you carry Coleman and this family during this time. Blessings to you all in the name of our Lord Jesus.
    A Mom

  63. LORD, I am awed by the impact Coleman has had on an ever expanding circle of people in just nineteen years. It makes me believe that he will try to do great and mighty things for YOU and this hurting world if we who pray for his recovery are granted this Christmas Miracle.

    THY will be done on earth as it is in Heavan.

    Coleman's Grandpa Bob

  64. Dear Lord God,we come to seperated by miles, but joined together in your love to pray for the gift of life, Coleman. A child in Christ and the child of a loving mom. I know your maricules. I know you will provide one for this family. I ask this in your holy and wonderful name. Amen

    Tish from Whiteman AFB

  65. How awesome God is to let us witness a fragment of His unseen realm. It is overwhelming to read all these prayers to our Heavenly Father. Thank you, Father that you are Omnipotent! Thank you, that you created us with just a word. Thank you, that this will all turn out just as you planned. Jer 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
    Father God once again I ask you to heal Coleman's body. Restore him to complete health.

  66. Coleman, Belinda, Eric and family,
    Please know that you are constantly in our thoughts and we are praying constantly. Stay strong. We love you, the Hanson's

Drs. to have wisdom where choices don't seem to be available. Peace to settle over all. May all who enter the room be aware of the presence of Christ. In Jesus name, AMEN.

  70. I remember the Lord talking to me in a time of trouble thru his word and I keep this scripture in my heart. Wanted to share it with you:

    "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

    Joshua 1:9

  98. Precious Father, you know that one of your special children is fighting the greatest battle of his life right now. Lord, I pray first for comfort, that he might rest peacefully. I also ask that during this time you do a miraculous healing in his body. Father, you have promised that if two of us on earth agree about anything we ask for, it will be done by our Father in heaven. We are asking for this now. We pray that however you will to work in this situation that you would receive the glory and that you would hold this precious family in your protective wings, and that they would TRULY feel your arms carrying them through this difficult time. You are good, Abba, and you half all power in heaven and on earth, and we plead that you would intercede and do a mighty work that the doctors who are over Coleman's case would fall to their knees before the greatest healer of them all. Thank you for your love in times of trial and heartache. Please give Coleman's parents peaceful rest tonight as I am sure they are tired from the worry and grief. We ask all these things in the powerful name our precious Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

  99. Coleman,

    God is with you and we are praying for ya

    Thought: Though the healing powe of the Christ Presence, I am strong and whole.'

    I have within me the most amazing source for rejuvenation and wholeness; the Christ Presence, the perfect spiritual essence of my soul. This healing power enables recovery from illness or injury and inspires practices that are good for mind and body ......

    The Christ Presence is within those I hold in prayer, and I know that strength and wholeness are possible for each and every one.



  101. we are praying for you Coleman, Belinda, and Eric! Through God, anything is possible. There will be a miracle.

  102. There are many people who are in Coleman's life that do not believe in a greater power at this time. However; they all find themselves at the mercy of God & praying to him to please spare Coleman's life. I believe that this has brought some light to so many eyes & that from this, God will have a lot more who believe in him, especially when Coleman is whole again. Please, God, spare this young mans life. He has done nothing but great in this world, please leave him with us. In sparing Coleman's life, I forsee that you will gain so many more followers. Please. Thousands of people are praying that you please spare this young man. He means so much to so many people. Please show us a Christmas miracle in the name of Coleman.

  104. Belinda and Eric, Brad and I are sharing Coleman stories. If anybody knows how to get a good nights rest, it was Coleman. Not only a good nights rest, but when it was time to rest, he'd drop on the spot and be sleeping peacefully. I pray that this type of rest is what you had and pray for you to be refreshed in the Spirit. For God time isn't what is as important as timing. His is perfect and may we walk in it. loving you guys so much!

  105. Dear Eric and Belinda, I'm praying tonight for you to have some peace and rest. God keeps His promises,, always. much love in Christ, Suzy

  107. heavenly father we come before you once more. you know our hearts and hear our prayers, comfort Coleman and his family and give them peace. My first prayer is for the total and complete recovery of all his body organs. May the doctors be given wisdom to do what only you know they can. The rest is in your hands. We have all read of the miracles that you have done...we are asking for one in the healing of Coleman's body. Comfort him and give him peace as well as Belinda and Eric. May the bleeding be stopped and this young man receive a full recovery. You are our maker. We all stand in agreement as your word says it shall be done and will not return void. We thank you for that and for the gift of your son. Guard him and protect him from all evil in Jesus name I pray amen


  108. Coleman,
    We are praying for you to be healed by the loving hand of our Father, to rise up and be a "miracle" for all the world to witness. May the Spirit of the Lord infuse your body with the strength and healing. I pray that you can hear your Mom read these blessed messages being sent to encourage you. Don't let go of the hem of His garment.
    Belinda and Eric, may God also infuse you with the needs for your strength and well-being. Please know our hearts cry out to the Lord for the three of you and the family members here.

    God Bless the 3 of you and may His arms hold you, comfort you and give you more strength than you could ever imagine.

  109. Dear ones, We continue to pray "without ceasing" for Coleman. Every night I sing the following passage from Numbers 6:24-26 over Kien right before I turn his light off.

    The LORD bless you, and keep you;
    The LORD make His face shine on you,
    And be gracious to you;
    The LORD lift up His countenance on you,
    And give you peace.'

    I have been singing this blessing prayer for you as well. Be strong! Rest in the love and peace of your gracious Heavenly Father.
