A Prayer for Maddie

Constant prayers have been lifted up to our Heavenly Father for sweet Maddie Kirkley. She is my friend, Jennifer's daughter. I have known Jennifer for as long as I can remember and we were childhood friends and spent a lot of time together when we were kids. Now, we are both grown up! Jennifer and her husband, Chad, have three children, Maddie, Triston, and Kyndal.
This is Maddie praying at church. Isn't it absolutely precious? Her hands are clasped oh so tight, and her eyes are closed, her head is bowed, showing reverence to our Father in heaven! Childlike faith is what we ALL need, right? 
Maddie is one of the cutest little girls I know and always has a smile on her face. Would you please join me in praying for this sweet girl? Will you pray for her daily? Please do. Please pray for all her family and friends as well.
Dear Jesus,
Thank you for Maddie. Thank you for her sweet
smile and her sweet personality.
We come before you now on or knees and ask you to heal Maddie.
I just pray that you place your healing hand on her and keep her strong.
I pray that you would give the doctors all the wisdom needed in order to help her.
I pray for Maddie's family and friends. I pray that you would comfort them and I pray you would
help them feel your loving arms around them. Let them know you are there with them!
In your sweet name we pray, Amen.
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
Psalm 119:14
