Thank you for your prayers. After not hearing anything all day, I just got off the phone with my mother-in-law. The doctors thought they needed to go in and stop some bleeding, but it took care of itself. They thought they needed to do surgery to reshape his skull, but it is going back to its normal shape by itself. Every time they think they need to fix a problem, it is done without intervention. The parents are well, the brother (and driver of the vehicle) is improving.

I cannot deny the results I have seen come from sincere combined prayers.
I felt the strength of combined prayers when Scott and I had to meet with our bishop last fall (which pales in comparison to this!).

A friend that was struggling a couple of weeks ago had an ah-ha moment regarding how much better he felt the next day when he found out that our family, and each of our children individually, were praying for him.

And now the miracle of a young child's life, even after being run over by a truck.
Many thanks to all of you, and to my Heavenly Father. I cannot deny His presence and hand in each of our lives. I am overwhelmed by His goodness and power.

Please keep the prayers coming!

I am a firm believer in the power of prayer, particularly a community of prayer as we have here. Our voices of common concern, support and love, and seeking divine intervention for the good of others, is amazing.

This story just testifies to this power. This is a miracle!

This same power can work miracles among this community of bloggers as well, bringing healing and wholeness, as common faith and prayer come together. I know. I have been a recipient thereof.

I'm not really sure my exact thoughts on prayer anymore, but I'm still grateful for them, and humbled by the love of those that offer them.
