Fasting for Finley

This upcoming Friday I have another appointment with the specialist. We are praying for more good news and continued hope for our little girl.

This journey has not been easy for us at all. There have been so many ups and downs. We still don't have any clear answers. In fact, the range of possible outcomes is so broad that we don't really know what to think.
Through it all our only hope is that the Lord has a plan for us and for her. However, this doesn't mean we are giving up! We are still praying for a healthy daughter. We believe that a miracle can happen.

Daniel and I have decided to pray and fast tomorrow, the whole day before my appointment. We will be bringing all of our hopes, worries, and fervent requests to God in complete belief that HAS heard us and will continue to hear us!

We have also decided that we will pray and fast every Thursday until the baby is born (only 8 weeks!!). This is such a personal spiritual decision, but we believe that God hears the faithful. My family will be joining us in our praying and fasting; we would be honored to have as many people as possible join us in our petition!

"...for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” [Matthew 17:20-21]


  1. What a journey! I am praying for you, your precious family and sweet Finley. I will join you for your day of prayer and fasting. I truly believe a miracle IS and Has occurred and will continue. I pray you will get more amazing answers tomorrow. <3 <3

  2. Fantastic. You're doing so well, going about this exactly right. God will honor those petitions, Kelli! Keep your eyes on him. He loves you, and He loves Finley, and He PROMISES to honor your requests when your heart is pure and you bring it to Him in these most sincere ways. Standing with you and behind you in every way I can, and thanking God for your testimony of faithfulness.
