A Mustard Seed of Faith

I want to see my prayers do something big. In person. 

So often we pray for others passionately and see God move from afar. But I want to see Him move up close – in my daughter’s life. I have never wanted anything so desperately. I want to see her healed here on earth!

Our baby girl is nine months old now. From a medical perspective, she has fifteen months or less to live.

Fifteen months. Or less.

And yet , we know that God is greater than Krabbe. The Bible tells us that faith in Him can do amazing things:

Then Jesus told them, “I tell you the truth, if you have faith and don’t doubt, you can do things like this and much more. You can even say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. You can pray for anything, and if you have faith, you will receive it.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭21‬:‭21-22‬ NLT)

The apostles said to the Lord, “Show us how to increase our faith.” The Lord answered, “If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘May you be uprooted and thrown into the sea,’ and it would obey you! (‭Luke‬ ‭17‬:‭5-6‬ NLT)

We want to see our faith move mountains, figuratively. We face impossible odds right now with Tori from an earthly perspective, but we know and believe that with God ALL things are possible! Krabbe is our mountain. Krabbe is our mulberry tree.

Lord, please save Tori’s life. Allow us to struggle with her as a drama-filled little girl; allow us to have the frustrations that parents of teenagers experience; allow us to raise her to know You and to love You. Please. 

You told us to pray for Your Will to be done on earth just like it is in Heaven, and Lord, we know that there are no diseases in Heaven. So we pray that Tori would be completely healed!

God, we have faith bigger than a mustard seed (from our perspective), and we believe with all our hearts that You can heal her earthly body! Please heal her. Restore her brain to full function and remove Krabbe from her body. In Jesus’ name we ask these things…

  3. Please, please, please, Lord. We KNOW you can do it-please just do it and show your glory through Tori! The world is watching and I really believe this is the perfect opportunity for SO many people to understand who You are through her. I know we are seeing You through Brennan and Lesa, and we thank You for their faithfulness in the midst of their overwhelming situation. Mustard seed faith and more- everywhere from SO many…please,Lord,PLEASE-give us the desires of our hearts!! Thanking You for loving us and for knowing the beginning from the end and believing as the Brackbills do that You do all things absolutely well.
    Brennan and Lesa, We love you and admire you and pray for you and Tori as fervently as we know how.
    Your words are so true and your faith shines so brightly. We are watching and waiting for God to heal Tori. Masses of people praying and begging for her healing, yet knowing more and more that HE and HE alone loves her best and will give her HIS BEST because of His intense love for her and for you. Like you, we want so very much for that to be an earthly healing. Thank you so much for keeping the faith and encouraging so many. Asking God for His richest blessings for you.
