An Answered Prayer

Yesterday while attending a friend's church, a woman stood up and filled in the congregation about a baby they have been praying for... a baby that is not even born yet.

At 13 weeks the baby was diagnosed with a condition, Gastroschisis (I think) where ALL his/her major organs were developing outside his/her body, even his/her heart. If this wasn't enough they also found fluid on the brain. The doctor's gave the baby 0%... let me repeat 0% chance of survival. The church prayed for the family.

Sometime later the mom went back for an ultrasound, and miraculously (meaning no medical explanation as to how this happened) the baby's heart was back inside his/her body, and the fluid on the brain was gone... again the church prayed.

The woman, at my friend's church, received an e-mail from the baby's mom the day before yesterday; most of the babies organs are now INSIDE his/her body, the organs that remain on the outside are FULLY operable, and the baby should be able to lead a normal healthy life without any permanent birth defects...

From 0% chance of survival to not even having any kind of permanent birth defect... If that's not the power of prayer then I don't know what is....
