Please Pray for 12-Year Old Jayden Cooper

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
Psalm 46:1
(KJV)

I come to you with an urgent plea for prayer this morning, my friends.
12-Year Old Jayden Cooper is in the hospital, very sick.  After suffering with severe abdominal pain and some vomiting over the past few weeks, the vomiting became worse, and he was hospitalized for testing.  


  He has lost weight, his heart rate is elevated, he is anemic, and he is suffering from severe malnutrition.  


The doctors are still not exactly sure about what is going on, but some possible diagnoses are inflammatory bowel disease and/or Crohn's colitis.

His family asks that you please pray for Jayden.  Please pass this prayer request along to every prayer warrior you know, and share with your social media and prayer groups, if you will.

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much."
James 5:16

  9. Praying for Jayden and his family!! Last Thursday, my son, Don, had surgery for similar symptoms & it turned out to be a fatty tumor (not cancer!!), where his small intestine joins the large intestine. It had caused something that pushes the intestine down inside itself, and gradually cuts off the blood supply. Dr.'s did a colonoscopy and a CT Scan and removed it laproscopically. He's at home & doing great. I mention this as something for Jayden's parents to ask the Dr.'s about. It's rare, so many Dr.'s don't think to check for this. Also, my son's Dr. said they always do a complete test for parasites and intestinal bacteria, too. They can cause pain, weight loss, malnutrition, and low red blood count. Prayers for correct diagnosis and complete healing. Bev

  11. Oh Dear Father, please hear the cries of your servant's hearts here with this child. Guide and lead the doctors so that an exact and accurate diagnosis can be made with proper treatment. Bring this child healing Lord upon his little body. Fill him with nourishment that comes from You. Be with his parents and loved ones and give them a peace that will surpass all understanding. Father God, simply take the wheel. I asked these things in Your Precious and Holy Name. Amen
    Hugs and blessings, Cindy
