For the past 5 years our daughter, Alexandra, has battled chronic Lyme disease and CIRS. This year she was forced to take a year off from school because she could no longer handle the illness along with the pressures of her junior year academics. We have consulted with multiple physicians around the country and have yet to find any consistent relief from her daily battle with debilitating fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea and body aches.
Our first and foremost prayer is for Alexandras complete miraculous healing. But as we wait in our 5th year of this trial, we need the strength to carry on despite the absence of answers or the healing we desire. We pray for Alexandra to let go of her disappointments and frustrations with her situation and to truly embrace Gods love for her and to trust in His care. We pray for Aexandras battle with depression and loneliness and ask for the ability as parents to foster an atmosphere of hope and encouragement. And, we pray for wisdom - the wisdom to know which treatments to try next, which doctors to visit, and the wisdom to help Alexandra live as normal a life as possible with the hope of finishing high school and planning for the college.
Thank you for your prayers.
