More prayers needed...

I know we are not the only family dealing with heartache...
I pray you will not tire of our ceaseless requests for your faith and your prayers.
We are humbled to our very cores...
To the very fiber of our souls.
If there is anyone watching and waiting with us, this afternoon,
we plead, one more time, for your prayers.
Things are not going so well here today...
I have never been so afraid...
Even Matt, my rock, is wobbling a bit
for the first time.
His solid faith being chased out by the fear of the reality
we are dealing with hour to hour, and minute to minute.
The once confident doctors are worried...
We can see it in their kind eyes,
written in the creases of their weathered, experienced faces.
They do this every day.
I could never...
There seems to be no logical reason for his sudden decline.
They've sent him for an MRI.
He'll be gone an endless, torturous hour.
The results back a few after that.
We'll have a better idea this evening.
But for now, if you are able and willing,
please petition to heaven for our family.
Please ask our loving Father,
creator of Heaven and earth, and all things in them
to heal our broken boy.
I watched the beautiful snow fall this morning
and thought how many endless things he has created.
The majesty of the mountains I can see out my windows here.
The vastness of the oceans across the globe.
The tiny, delicate blossoms that will bloom again in Spring.
Certainly He can do all things.
Certainly He can mend this child's mind.
Please pray for Bronson.
Please don't be afraid.
Pray with faith and confidence
for God is bound to answer the prayers of the righteous.
We pray that Bronson will live, as a testimony of Heavenly Father's infinite, boundless power.
We pray He will say yes.
Please let Him say yes...

I'm praying all the time for Bronson. My friend just posted your blog on Facebook the other day. I cried as I scrolled down to your first post to find out what happened, past all the pictures of him in his hospital bed, hooked up to tubes. I'm checking your blog every day for updates. Getting happy about the progress, crying when there is a setback.
I'm praying... every day.

Amanda said...

Just said a prayer for Bronson and you and Matt to be comforted.

When we were at the hospital with our little angel we prayed so hard for him to live no matter his condition. (Which for us we knew considering his condition at that point, that he wouldn't have a normal life)

Our prayers then turned for him to live only if he would be able to have a normal life.

Then our prayers turned to let it be whatever God's will was. That was the hardest thing for me, was that God's will might not have been my will.

Payton fought very hard and I know it's because of our faith and prayers. He knows how bad we wanted him to stay here on earth with us.

He was given a blessing that his will, would connect with God's will. That night things turned for the worse and you know the outcome from there. The next day he returned to his Heavenly home.

I am so sorry that you are going through this right now. I know how it feel to watch your little guy suffer and to feel completely helpless It is the hardest thing I have ever gone through.

Sara, I pray that Bronson still has many things to accomplish here on earth. That he has a long life ahead of him.

For us, Payton had fulfilled his earthly requirements and I truly can testify of that because of many sacred experiences we had and still continue to have.

With love, thoughts, and many, many prayers.

Amanda

Dear Matt & Sara,

I am so sorry for what you are going through but wish to thank you for sharing it with us. Your bravery and courage is awe-inspiring -- and yes, while many in the world suffer with problems and tragedy -- your struggle is no less important.

Thank you for the opportunity to bow in prayer with my 14yo daughter as we pleaded to our Father in Heaven for your protection and for His peace to envelop you.

Please don't consider it a burden to ask for prayers -- it is an honor to join with the countless others and plea to the Father on your behalf.

May God continue to you bless you.

<3 Jennifer

Sarah said...

Sara, you don't know me (as so many others have said) but I felt compelled to let you know how deeply your story has affected me. I have a son the exact same age as Bronson, and mom-to-mom, my heart aches for you. BUT, I know in my heart that he will make it through this, that he will LIVE and be made whole again. While I am not a particularly religious person, I have been praying constantly for him and for you. Please know that you have so many people...people like me, you've never even met...sending so much positive energy your way. Please continue to keep us updated through your rollercoaster ride, that will most certainly end with everyone smiling in relief!

I found your blog thru the LDS babycenter group and have thought of him often since seeing it yesterday. As my husband and I bathed our son today we both knew how important it was to have one person watching him no matter phone ringing or anything else that wanted our attention. Just know because of your willingness to share this painful experience you are helping others keep their babies safe.
I am praying for Bronson and that our faith can heal him.

I have never met you either but I am praying for you and your sweet little boy. I have all boys as well and my baby is only a month older than your little Bronson. I put him in the tub today and when my 3 year old wanted me to start a movie for him I told him it would have to wait (normally I would have hurried and done it). Thank you for having the courage to share your story with us. It is making me change my habbits and be more careful. I KNOW that God has the power to heal and that your sweet little Bronson is in the best hands. He will be okay, miracles can and do happen.

Can barely see through the tears enough to type this, as your tragedy is so heart wrenching....we have all walked away "for just a second" from our children when in the tub....your story will save many children...Bronson has touched the lives of more people in the past week than others do in a lifetime. It's OK to cry, it's OK to be weak, it's OK to ask for the support of others...hopefully all of the tears cried and prayers given will help to heal Bronson....we are all praying, begging... for Bronson to be saved.

Hey Sara,
You are still getting prayers from New Hampshire as well. Your little guy's name has been submitted to so many prayer rolls all over the country. Hang in there sweetheart. Remember, you aren't any help to Bronson if you don't take care of yourself also. Don't feel guilty for showering. For eating. For sleeping. You have to do those things so that you are YOU when Bronson needs you. Same goes for Matt, too. ALL of your boys need you to take care of yourselves through all of this. xoxoxo

Ashley Willis said...

Dearest Sara,
As I have been thinking about, crying with, and especially praying for you and Matt and sweet Bronson today, my favorite scripture has continuously come to mind:

Proverbs 3:5-6
"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."

I know Heavenly Father is so aware of you and all you are going through. He loves you and Bronson so much more than we can comprehend, and He will see you both through this.

Praying so hard constantly for you!!!!!
Love,
Ash

You don't know me, I am a friend of Sue Richardsons. Anyway she was telling me about your ordeal and I just read through your blog through my tears. I feel for you, I really do. Every mother in the entire world understands what happened. We all get distracted from time to time.
I know it's no comfort, but we all have our trials. My husband and I lost our son 10 years ago in premature birth. I still think of him often and know I will be with him again. We never know what our trials will be, only that we will have them. The only thing that I know for sure is that Heavenly Father is there with you. He is holding you in His arms. He feels your pain and knows your heartache. I don't know how you go through this day after day, but I will say an extra prayer for your sweet little boy and for you and your family. God bless.

Dear Sara,

Your story has touched me so deeply. I had a very similar experience in April with my son (in a pool). I want you to know there is a lot of hope. My son is doing great now. About a month after this happened to my son, a friend's nephew had a drowning experience in a lake. He was in the hospital for at least a week. No one knew if there would be lasting damage... it was a torturous week but in the end he came out of it just fine. There is so much hope for Bronson. My family is praying for you, Bronson and your family.

Sara,
I am praying so much for you and your sweet baby. I want you to remember in one of your post's when you were pregnant with Bronson and what the meaning of his name was.... Remember?... You keep that in your mind and remind him as well, he needs to hear it. I know you have probably thought of this but maybe it is time for another blessing? I have a nephew and he was in primary childrens for about 4 months and everytime things looked a little cloudy we would have a blessing for him and things always seemed to climb for a while. Remember it is a Roller Coaster and the ride is not a fun one. Keep the world posted when you can, between here and facebook your followers keep climbing and followers equal prayers!

Dear Staker family,

We only know of your family and mostly through Alli! My how we love that girl! She is so fabulous!
I have heard much about you from many, many people this last week. I just want you to know that I, as well am praying for you. We have spent much time in the PICU at PCMC, and came close to losing our baby as well. I want you to know many miracles, unexplainable by anything but a Higher Power, happen. ESPECIALLY there, in that unit.

I can barely read your posts, because I know, all too well of the pain you are going through. Yet I know how NOTHING can spare your heart from aching right now. I can tell from what little I know, that you are an amazing person!

May our Father in Heaven continue to bless and comfort you. Much love from our family.

Catching up with your days posts. Been out all day. Here crying again at the computer desk reading over this. Sara and Matt, we will pray. HYMN 124 Vs. 1

Be still, my soul: The Lord is on thy side; With patience bear thy cross of grief or pain. Leave to thy God to order and provide; In ev'ry change he faithful will remain. Be still, my soul: Thy best, thy heav'nly Friend Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

I am friends with Jason Payne who told me about your boy on Monday morning during our commute. I am so so sorry. Tonight, after reading your post, I left to speak at to the young men in my stake at a Klondike Derby. As the snow fell I spoke to them about prayer and asked all 100 of them if they would pray for Bronson. As one boy closed the meeting with prayer he petitioned Heavenly Father to bless Bronson. I know I don't know you, but I am thinking and praying for you every day and always.

Hi there. You don't know my wife nor I. We don't know you but your story has touched us deeply. we have a little one just a little bit younger than Bronson.

Though we can only imagine the anguish you are experiencing we feel deeply for you and your family--you, your husband and your two little ones at home.

please understand that we are praying with faith in your behalf. We too hope so badly the answer is yes! Yes Bronson will be healed to full strength, yes, he will be the same little boy he was before this terrible nightmare began, yes you'll be able to hold him and cuddle him while he lays his head on your shoulder!

We so pray that will be your miracle--our miracle! what ever is the result be it according to the wisdom and love our heavenly father has for all of us. remember he is in charge and he loves you and each member of your family. Don't loose faith and stay strong with time and perspective you will be better able to see his infinite wisdom.

we'll keep praying for you--you are not alone, we are with you.

Had to check one more time before I went to bed to see if there was an update. I have been thinking about Bronson all day. I hope the MRI scan went well. Still Praying.

I'm so sorry for what is happening right now. I feel terrible that little kids and good families have to go through hard times. I know the Lord will protect him and give you both the straight that you need. I don't know you. A friend of mine post in her blog your story. I feel so sad right now but with hope. Our Heanvely Father loves us and I know he will help your little one. I also know he wil help us all to have faith that Bronson will be totally healthy and back home with the people that needs him. The blessing that your husband gave him was real and it touched my heart. I'll join the prayers of so many people. Please recive our love and support from Texas. I don't know you little boy and I already feel a lot of admiration for him.

You probably don't remember me. I'm Kathy Adams daughter. My mom told me what happened and I just found the "Prayers for Bronson" club on facebook and got a link to your blog. I just wanted to let you know that we are all praying for you, your family and especially Bronson. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.

Our prayers for Bronson will not stop, even after he fully recovers....then our prayers will simply change from faithful pleading to ones of humble gratitude.

This evening was the very first time that our family of 5 knelt together and prayed. Your story has deeply touched my heart, my husband's heart and the hearts of our children. We prayed to our heavenly father asking him to spare little Bronson's life. We also asked him to help you, your husband,and the other boys feel loved and comforted throughout this experience. I am LDS but have been inactive for seeveral years and my husband is not a member. But, reading your blog the last 2 days has deeply touched us. We both believe in god and have faith that he has the power to heal. I heard about your story from my sister while bathing my youngest. So many times I have felt there were so many things that I could be doing during her bath time. I admit that I did not always stay in the room with her. Thank you for sharing your story and reminding us busy parents that we need to slow down and keep our focus with our children. I am so sorry that you are living this tragedy. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers all day and all night long. Thank you for giving my family our first true spiritual experience together. I hope there are many more to come. may you all feel peace and get some rest tonight.

All our love- West Valley Family

Brianna said...

Just wanted to let you know I am thinking about your family and truly hoping for the best. From following Natalie and your experiences, I have gained such a stronger testimony of the power of prayer. I KNOW He is absolutely aware of each one of us (especially little Bronson) and He hears and answers each and every prayer.

Bridget said...

Bronson will be whole. I pray for him, you and for his attending physicians and nurses.

I am a nurse up at Primary Childrens and I am praying for you and your family. I have seen miracles happen.

Peruchos said...

I don't even know what to say to you: I am just overcome with your story tonight. I heard about you from my friend on Facebook and she pleaded that we pray for you. This story just touches me to the core. I so hope that you as a mom do not have guilt for what is going on, but I'm sure you do, because I'm a mother as well, and know that that's what happens. I know that Heavenly Father is in charge and has a plan for that little precious son of yours and for your family as well. I will be praying my heart out that His will is to leave him with you for a long time. May God bless you!
