Lex's patient Reagan

Lex wanted me to post about a very special little patient that needs to be lifted up in prayer.  Her name is Reagan and she's 6 years old.  Saturday night she went to bed in fine health.  Sunday morning she woke up with a tumor protruding from her kidney the size of 3 softballs.  Lex took care of her Sunday afternoon while they prepared to have emergency surgery.  She had her left kidney removed and is about to start chemotherapy.  

Lex wants us to pray for her and her parents.  They are still at Covenant.  If you want to leave encouraging comments and prayers Lex will print them and take them to the family.  This has all happened so quickly.  They are Christians and need to know that there are believers out there praying for their little Reagan.

Thanks and God bless.

"Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:28-31

I am praying that Reagan's tumor will be completely removed from her body and that the chemo will be effective. I pray for strength for you as her parents. I pray you have hope, cling to one another for support & love, and look to the Lord for understanding and peace. His grace is sufficient and His power is made perfect in weakness.

God bless,
Leah Dooley

Oh, Sweet Reagan! I am praying for a complete recovery for you. I pray that your pain will go away! I pray for your mom and dad to know exactly what you need. I pray that you know Jesus is looking down at you and loving you! You are his baby!
In Jesus' Name!
