Help Alexa and Family

Alexa, the two year old granddaughter of Pastor Kurt Hering (Layton, Utah), was taken to the hospital last week with stroke-like symptoms. The cause was found to be a tumor (about the size of a soup can) pressing on her brain. The tumor was successfully removed, but it was found to be malignant, so Alexa will have to receive radiation treatments.  A blog and donation center for Alexa and her family has been established to keep people informed and to give people an opportunity to help the family offset what insurance won't cover ($5,000 plus travel and so forth).  If you can donate to help the family out, please do so, but if not, please visit the site and remember to keep Alexa and her family in your prayers.  You can find the blog here, and you can go directly to the donate page here

Lord Jesus Christ, hear our prayers on behalf of Your beloved child, Alexa, as she undergoes radiation treatments.  Bless her and her family with faith in Your loving-kindness and protection.  Endow all medical personnel responsible for applying these treatments with ability and skill, so that, according to Your will, Alexa may be brought to full restoration of health and strength; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.
