Video: ‘Please pray that Marlie will receive her miracle’

We reported in May on little Marlie Ruth McDonald’s cancer fight.
In a new video, her family asks, “Please pray that Marlie will receive her miracle.”

    Mark 14:
    32 They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, �Sit here while I pray.�
    33 He took Peter, James and John along with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled.
    34 �My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death,� he said to them. �Stay here and keep watch.�
    35 Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him.
    36 �Abba,[f] Father,� he said, �everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.�
    Philippians 4:
    4 Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!
    5 Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
    6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
    7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
    I thought of these verses as you approach the MRI on Monday. I believe we are promised the same comfort that Jesus received, through his prayer, to be able to face the cross.

    Thank you for posting the video of this amazing family! Their transparency, faithfulness to God and trust in His promises as they pass through this storm has been an encouragement to so many. Arms of Hope continues to be blessed by God’s work through them.

    This is a beautiful family and a wonderful call out for us to lift them up in prayer. Since Marlie was born our children have presented her name to the Father each night at bedtime. He will heal!

    Sometimes it is hard for a Daddy and a Grandaddy to remain humble, but this saga has humbled this proud father, father-in-law and Grandfather. Thanks for your prayers throughout almost the entirety of the brotherhood, and thanks be to God, the Father, Who is the One in control.

    His name is Jehovah Rapha the Mighty Healer and the angels of little children like Marlie behold His face. He will certainly do whatever He has to do for the baby. Coming forth alive from the womb is even a miracle. She is a special baby with a special need loved by a special God Almighty.

    Just said a prayer for your precious Marlie, for her brave and loving sister and brother and for her godly Mom & Dad; and that God will be glorified through all of this. Thanks for sharing. God bless you!
