Urgent prayer request

A woman I know from a message board I used to frequent has suffered a terrible tragedy. Her year and a half old daughter fell from a five-foot slide and suffered a severe head injury. Little Kenley has been in the hospital since last Sunday and it has been an up and down road. From what I understand she's had at least two surgeries to help relieve bleeding and pressure in her brain. She may or may not live, and if she does live, there are likely to be very severe long term effects from her injuries.

Please, please pray for this innocent little girl and her family. My heart breaks for them. I've never met this family, but my mommy heart hurts for them so much. Kenley is just about my own daughter's age and the very thought... I can't even think it.

Gracious God, we ask that you please be with little Kenley Martin and her family during this difficult time. We pray for healing, Lord, that Kenley might survive this trauma. Please bless her family with the miracle of her survival, and if at all possible, minimal long term damage. We pray for the doctors and nurses and all who are involved in her care. Please guide their hands, their hearts, their minds and their decisions, that they may provide the best care possible for her. Please grant her family peace and faith as they face such a horrific tragedy.

We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Blessed Mother Mary, we pray to you today to ask for intercession for dear Kenley Martin. Please pray for her and her family. Please be with her mother Sarah, as one mother to another, and help her face this with grace and love. Please dear Mother, pray for them.

Amen.
