Please pray for 3 yr old Jedidiah and his family!!!!

Can you please pray for the Harper family in AR. The husband is a pastor in a small town and they have three children. Yesterday the youngest - a 3 yr old boy - was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive cancer. They go to AR children's hospital tomorrow to determine stage and treatment options. They need our prayer.

Here is their blog page, and their post about finding the cancer is below his picture.  Please go to their blog to leave messages of encouragement, those of you who left messages here already, I will pass on to them.

"On Sunday afternoon after church, Jedidiah had finished his bath and ran to jump on the bed with his daddy. Josh noticed that his left testicle was very swollen. We thought he might have a hernia so we took him to the ER. The ER doctor did an ultrasound and discovered a large mass. It was thought to have been a mass of blood. The plan was to remove the blood during surgery on Wednesday. The doctors instead found a solid mass the size of a egg and removed it along with his testicle. They told us that they were 99% sure it was nothing but wanted to biopsy and would let us know on Friday. On Friday the surgeon called to say that the pathologist wanted another day to analyze the tumor. That scared us a bit but we still felt good about it. Monday around 1pm we received a call that changed our life forever.

Our sweet baby boy Jedidiah has a rare and aggressive form of cancer, Rhabdomyosarcoma.

We will be leaving in the morning for a 11am appt with the oncology dept at Childrens hospital in Little Rock to determine the stage and treatment options.

Please pray in agreement with us that this cancer is gone and that Jedidiah will be completely healed."

Isaiah 53:5 NKJV
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.


  1. Woops Laura Ann Sweetie...
    I just realized that I had missed the link at the top of the page. (Harper family)

    Sweetie could you please copy and paste this message to Jedidiah's family. I think she needs to know there is hope out there, and I know she would benefit from talking to someone who has been there. I thought I had clicked the link, but sadly I missed it. Instead I sent it to you.

    Many thanks sweetie... Sherry

  2. I just prayed for this precious little boy and his family.

  3. Sherry and Miss V.

    Thank you both for your sweet prayers I know it means a lot to this family even though I don't know them personally. Last night I poured out my heart in tears and prayers to the Lord for them and another family in blog land who's sweet angel Emma lost her battle with cancer (she was 5 I think). TO get both of these pieces of sad news on within moments of each other just broke me last night, but I know that God is with both of these families. Miss Sherry I passed your longer message on to them and posted it on their blog so they will be able to receive the blessings of encouragement from it.
