a call to pray

As you know, Gray had his fifth round of chemo this past week. He was released from the hospital Saturday but it was a sort of conditional release. Gray was still getting sick and wasn’t really drinking enough to stay hydrated but the doctors released him telling us that if he continued to get sick or refused to drink that we had to bring him back. At first, we were optomistic. Saturday evening Gray acted like his normal three-year-old self! He was in a great mood! But Sunday morning he woke up sick again. We gave him some nausea medicine and “watched and waited” hoping that the throwing up would subside. Throughout the morning, though, things only seemed to get worse and Gray was becoming extremely lethargic and wasn’t drinking at all. In fact, in the 24 hours after his release from the hospital Gray only took in eight ounces of fluids. We became even more concerned when Gray told me he was going to throw up, as he sat on the sofa, so I put a towel in front of him and leaned him forward. He didn’t get sick but was so weak that he practically collapsed right into the towel face first. He didn’t have the strength to keep himself sitting up. Sigh. We decided to take Gray back to the hospital and the doctors made the decision to admit him to give him IV fluids. He will stay overnight tonight and hopefully be released tomorrow. Above all else, we hope that a night of fluids and medicine will bring our baby’s strength (and his personality) back. I have to say that cancer never ceases to take over your day, change your plans and keep you at its mercy at all times. We never know what a day will hold. But we truly want to see our baby better. Please pray for Gray tonight. Pray that he will stop getting sick, that his strength will return and that he can go home and enjoy some “normal life” before his upcoming surgery.

“Find rest my soul in Christ alone, know His power in quietness and trust. When the oceans rise and thunders roar, I will soar with you above the storm. Father you are king over the flood. I will be still and know you are God.”

    Praying for strength and peace. “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).

    I saw a link to this story posted on a Facebook Friend’s post and I want to let you know I am praying for your precious little boy. I want to encourage you to speak faith to your soul as David did. Much love in Christ.

    Precious Gray and family, so many who have never met you, love you and are surrounding you with prayer today and in the days to come. I pray for your strength to be returned, I pray for God’s presence to be mightily upon you, and I pray for your body to wage and win this battle against cancer. In the name of God Almighty, Amen. Love you precious boy!

    Ephesians 3:20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. God’s word was true when it was written and is true today, God nor His word ever changes. Believing for your miracle, sooner than later.

  14. Becky Davis January 10, 2011 at 8:03 am #

    We’re praying for Gray this morning, I pray he gets to go home with you very soon and that he feels as good as he possibly can. I pray that Doug and Jill will be able to rest a little too.

      Praying for Gray today, that his strength will be restored. Also that his immune system would function properly to help him fight this cancer and that he would be made whole in Jesus name !

    Doug, Jill, Gray & Seth…. you all are continually in our prayers. We are believing for a miracle for Gray & praying for strength for the family.

    We love you,

    May God our Father have mercy on little Gray while strengthening you Jill & Doug. It is so true that events like these take over our day. It’s like having a telephone constantly ringing, reminding you of these anxieties over Gray’s health, every hour, every minute. Please try to bless God anyway when these anxious thoughts come and give these fears over to Him.
    “When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.” Psalm 94:19 Praying constantly for sweet Gray!

    Praying for Gray and all of you. I pray right now God that You heal all of Gray’s diseases and redeem his life from destruction. Psalm 103:3-4

    I am praying for your sweet and precious little Gray! My heart hurts for you all. Im agreeing in the power of the blood for God’s healing, your peace and comfort.

    Father, we lift up Gray and his mom, dad and brother before you right now. Lord, first of all we pray for peace. Once you descend with that precious peace, re-new their spirits, bodies, and minds with your presence and your touch. Father, bring healing into Gray’s little body and spirit. We cling to your word that “nothing is impossible for God”. Let them feel the embrace of your sweetness and goodness to encourage, re-kindle hope, and give them complete rest. Thank you, Father, for caring for each one in Your special grace. Amen.

    From down in the southern cone of South America, we send you our heartfelt love and prayers. We have asked our student body at the Bible School to be in prayer, also Grace A/G in Springfield, MO is a church full of old-time pentecostal veterans who know how to “pray through”. They are lifting you up as well. Hugs from ‘hot” and humid Uruguay. Dios les guarde…God keep you.

    I will be adding baby Gray to my prayers.
    I have a 3 month old nephew who has been in dallas’ childrens medical center and had his first of 3 open heart surgeries at 10 days old. We have seen the miricles of the children down there and how much prayer does help! For any one in oklahoma wanting to donate blood for baby GREY, I saw the OBI blood drive for gray, but you should be able to donate at any OBI place and give his name and donate to his cause. I know it has helped my nephew and not sure if every one knew that.

  21. Christine F January 10, 2011 at 8:52 pm #

    I know you don’t know me, but I want to let you know the little Gray is in our prayers. We pray for strength and healing to come over his little body. All things are possible through Christ. We also pray for the rest of the family for continued strength and hope through the Lord Jesus Christ. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

    i am praying for your little boy. i can’t say i know what you are going through, obviously, but God knows exactly. He is with you all!

  23. Jamie Fluharty January 12, 2011 at 3:32 am #

    Dearest Everaard Family,
    When I was reading your last post, I ran across the part where you all had said “I have to say that cancer never ceases to take over your day, change your plans and keep you at its mercy at all times”……
    I want to be an encouragement and remind you that cancer has a name and it MUST bow!! It has no place and authority in your household and through the power of Jesus, it too, must bow!! Keep fighting the good fight and be encouraged. Remember, this is a season and it too shall pass!
    I am praying for ALL four of you for extreme strength, peace and rest during this very, very trying time. Hang on, Jesus is carrying your family through, he will never leave you all or forsake any of you! You WILL get through this, there is a light at the end of the tunnel!! We love you all and will remember to keep praying for you….

  24. Kent Everaard January 16, 2011 at 8:50 pm #

    Baby Gray We are praying for you daily! We love you very much. JJ says hello!
