Day 20

We are thankful for your prayers for healing for Lucas. Continue to pray for God's wisdom, strength, and courage for us also.

Pray for Adam Root and for his wife, Amy, and daughter, MacKenzie. Adam was discharged to a rehabilitation facility, but is returning to the ICU because of recurrent swelling in his brain. Continue to pray for Heather's uncle Mikey, diagnosed with brain cancer. And pray for our nurse today (Ellyn) who has a close family member seriously ill, that God would give them wisdom for treatment options.

We are blessed by a great God who encourages us through your prayers and messages to us.

God is good.


  1. Amen & Amen, dear siblings-in-Christ ...and many times thru-out the day!
    Betsy C

  2. We are holding you up to God with love!

  3. Burnie and family,
    Continuing to pray each day and night, believing in His plan which we can not see.
    You are all never far from my thoughts.
    Wishing I could bring you music as these words seem terribly inadequate, but don't worry, I won't bring my violin to Chapel Hill!
    Donna M.

  4. I know you don't know me and I don't know Lucas, but you guys are constantly on my mind and in my prayers. (I work for Novant) You are blessing all of us readers and prayers with your faith in God and his grace. Your love for those around you is evidence of God in you, and you in God.
    Thank you for your raw testimony and your transparency.

  5. Burnie, Tina, and Spencer,

    Praying without ceasing as we believe and confess GOD's PROMISES OF HEALING over Lucas and the other famiilies that you requested prayer for. Romans 10:17; I Timothy 6:12; Proverbs 4:20-22; Matthew 8:17; I Peter 2:24; Isaiah 53:4-5; Psalm 103:2-3; Matthew 11:28; Psalm 107:20; Psalm 121:1-2; John 10:10; I John 4:4; 3 John 2.

  7. Still praying...May God give you perfect peace, as only HE can do...Tim, Bonnie, Spencer, Stephanie, and Sara

  8. Thank you so much Burnie, your post means so much to me. Thank you for your support and prayers. I have and will continue to pray for Lucas's recovery. We know our God is bigger than these injuries, and He is so faithful.


  9. Bernie and Tina,
    Please know you are not far from my thoughts at any time during the day. I continue to pray for all of you. Talked with gloria today and told her I would let you know that you all are in her prayers constantly.
    god bless you!

  10. Bernie, Tina and Spencer, You are all in my thoughts and being uplifted in prayer. I pray that the Lord would work in a mighty way in Lucas body and heal him. My heart goes out to you - we do have a wonderful Lord who is always in control. May the Lord continue to give you peace and strength that only He can give. Praying Betsy Brower

  11. Continuing to pray for you and Tina to know the rich Company, to feel the endless Compassion, and to receive the wisest Counsel of the Holy Spirit with you during this time of suffering.

    We are fighting this fight of faith with you and for you with our ongoing prayers lifted to the Maker of Our Lord Jesus Christ who knows we are weak...and "collects our tears in a bottle" (Psalm 61:8) each one counted, drop by drop, tear by tear... they are sacred things among the treasures of God!

    Abba Father,
    please cover Lucas with Your Love tonight. Beathe Your Spirit into him! We praise You! Amen.
    xoxo Beth

  12. We keep praying often for you and for Lucas. May our Lord Jesus fill you with much peace. Seth and Gretchen

  13. Continuing to pray for you and Tina that you would feel the sweet Company, deep Compassion, and wisest Counsel from the Holy Spirit today.

    We are fighting this fight of faith with you...and for you... as we constantly lift our prayers for Lucas and your famiy to the Maker of Heaven and Earth.
    He remembers we are weak.
    He "collects our tears in a bottle." (Psalm 61:8) Each one is counted, drop by drop, tear by tear. They are sacred things among the treasures of God!

  14. no one knows why this is all happening, and I guess it is not for us to question even though that is our broken human nature. But, look what God is doing through you and your family and your evident, strong faith. In the midst of your own pain, you are able to reach out and care for others because the God we serve cared for you first and loves you. You and Tina are a witness to God's abundant love and grace. Lifting you all up in prayer for peace, strength, wisdom and comfort.
