Selah's Skull Reconstruction Prayer Chain

Selah, our 10-month old baby, will undergo major surgery Tuesday, August 30.  I shared about this surgery in THIS POST.   This surgery is high-risk and highly invasive, but it is necessary in order for Selah's brain to continue to develop, grow, and thrive.

Our friend, Kaleigh, felt the Lord's leading for her to organize a prayer chain for Selah.  (Info for that is below.)  A meal calendar for our family will be organized shortly as well (for local folks).  We are MOST grateful for your prayers and support; we simply cannot find adequate words to express the comfort we receive from your prayers.  It truly is a peace that surpasses understanding, only through the miracles of our Father.
The above video shows Selah crawling to Mommy on the day of her pre-op appointment, August 23.

Please pray for our precious princess.

We would also be most grateful for prayers for our family as we face another high-risk surgery.  Pray that each family member's heart would feel peace, that our kids at home will be comforted, that Satan would keep his ugly head out of our lives during this time, and that we would be filled with His strength as we face this time.

And above all else, that glory would be brought to God at all times, in all situations.

If you feel led to sign up for the "official" round-the-clock prayer chain (the first 48 hours are the most critical), please read the info below.

~Prayer Chain For Selah~
Organized by Kaleigh Anderson

You are Invited to be a part of prayer chain for Princess Selah Patterson as she undergoes surgery.

Who:  Princess Selah Patterson, age 10 months.

What: A special 48 hours committed to praying for safety as Selah undergoes her surgery
When: Round-the-clock coverage will begin August 30th at 4am and end September 1st at 4am

Where: Anywhere!  The beauty of prayer is that it can be done anywhere!
How:   Please sign up in the comments section of this post (click on "leave a comment"), and be sure to include the date/time of your prayer commitment.  (Be sure to read through the comments to make sure your preferred prayer slot isn't already taken.)  After you leave a comment on this post, please contact Kaleigh at and tell her what time you would like to commit to praying for Selah and an alternative time in the event that someone has already claimed that time. Hour-long slots would be great but even if you can commit to praying for 10 or 20 minutes that would be wonderful as well!!

Please pray for safety, that the doctors would have wisdom, that the Patterson family would be peaceful and that the Lord would be glorified in Selah’s life! Also pray for complete healing for Selah!

The day before the surgery, Kaleigh will send reminder emails to remind you of the time you have commited to, and any special prayer requests that the Patterson family have for Selah.  Prayer/Selah updates will be posted to this blog regularly.

Thanks so much everyone. Lets storm the gates of heaven for His precious, treasured baby girl.
