Urgent prayer for Joshua

This is an update and prayer from Nadene, Joshua's Mommy:
Yesterday without my Tim was very trying at times. He and Joshua are buddies and Joshua was upset that his daddy is sick and was not there with him. Joshua acted out several times throughout the day, not only for the fact of Tim's dissapearence but that he was not feeling well at his tummy. He's vomitted, had diarrhea, and fever off and on since our stay here but none like in the last 48 hours. It's been awful and we really need your prayers because our only option, TPN, can be even more of a set back for us by damaging what little liver Joshua has left. Today if you could go before the Father with me in a word of prayer for Joshua and Tim's wellbeing to turn around for the better.
Dear Jehovah Rapha!
Thank you for your many blessings on me, LORD! You've spared me so many times and I pray that you preserve my offspring, Joshua. Lord, I know you wouldn't have opened my womb with this miracle child just to take him back in a breath. God, please have mercy on his little body. He's hurting so with his tummy and with the rest of his little body. Please put your hand on him continually throughout his treatments. Please shore us up for what is to come. God help me to keep you in the forefront of my mind at all times. Joshua has done so well and came so far...please, LORD, help us get there at the finish line with remission of his cancer. God, we've fought long and hard to protect him for this ugly beast to come, rear it's ugly head, and try to snuff out the little life of my precious baby boy, Joshua Lee Freeman. Lord, you know that I know how BIG and mighty you can be. I've seen your power work in and through me many a time. God, please put your hand on Joshua and don't let go through all of these ruff and bumpy rides that are to come with battling his cancer. Lord, I believe we've overcome the worst and now I'm just waiting for your best of this bad situation. Lord, you are the only one who can turn this situation around. I love you you and praise you for all you've done are going to do!
Love always,Your daughter-Nadene
Okay, Saints, you know my heart. Please help me continue to pray. I will not rest until all my heavenly resources are exhausted! I will continue to SEEK, KNOCK...until the LORD OPENS! Thank you and God love you!
Christ...The Cure All,Nadene

Nadine,
I am praying for you and your son. I have never had a child of my own suffer in this manner but, as a nurse, I have seen many others and it is grueling to watch. I know the God we serve is able to heal and raise even this awful suffering as a testimony of His healing power.
I am believing with you for divine intervention on behalf of your son. Our God is more than able.

In Grace,
Marie
