Heavenly Father,

What a special day it is, that Noah gets to go home so early. It doesn't seem that long ago that we were all so worried and scared about Noah's cyst. We weren't sure of what to do or say, but we had hope in You. Your plan was to use him to draw us closer to You and we are grateful for that opportunity. Noah has touched so many lives and it is so amazing that we can all rejoice together, in Your name. My heart just fills with love when I look at his sweet face. To see his perfect little body, made by You, is a true miracle. Thank You Lord for this precious gift!

Lord I am so grateful for the gift of perspective.

You have used so many different tools to show me how to be grateful for Noah and his condition, grateful for this storm, and grateful for how you're changing me and the lives of so many others. I am grateful that we only have to go home with a feeding tube. It could be so much worse, no, it could be so much more complicated. Lord I lift up the two families I have gotten to know while here. I pray for their sweet babies and their conditions that are much more difficult than Noah's. Reveal yourself to them God, and prepare their hearts to be receptive to your love!

"I love you, I need you, I lay my life before you, and I surrender to you alone!"

Your ways are perfect!
I lift up Noah to you. Our hearts are so full of grattitude and joy that he is alive and healthy. We ask that you continue to heal Noah completely and allow him to go home with no tubes or wires. We know you already have a plan for Noah and we all feel so blessed to be a part of his life. Please comfort Andie as she is growing weary and feeling frustrated. Give her peace!
In your name,
Sweet Johnson family,

Our sweet Lord has so much love for all of you and I know He is there with you thru every second of this trial. Your precious baby Noah is helping all of us know God in a more intimate way as we pray for Noah's continued health and healing as well as beautiful Andie's.

Much love and blessings to Kyle, Andie, Ella and NOAH!

Uncle Geo & Aunt Patti
Heavenly Father, i just wanted to thank you for my son! Lord he is beautiful and perfect. I cant wait to raise him and teach him all about you, your love, your grace and your almighty power of healing. Lord I'm honored that Noah is my son and that you are using him in so many ways. Lord we are receiving emails and prayers from people i don't know and from people who are now turning to you for prayers and answers, I can feel this Lord. I'm so thankful for all you have given me.

Lord i want to lift up Andie. She is alone at the hospital and i can't be there with her. Please calm her mind and fill her heart with your love.

Lord i know your are watching over my son and i know with all my heart you will take care of him and heal him. thank you Lord for all you have done!

At a loss

Father God,
I praise you for all that you are. I am in awe of you, in awe of how you're using your people, completely beside myself.

Lord, fill us with less of us and more of you! I have no words...

I couldn't have said it better myself Bre. I felt the same way when I woke up this morning; just complete peace from the Lord. I just thought, "Lord, what a great day you have made. I praise You for this miracle of life!"

my prayer,
I come before you with such peace and grattitude, that you have carried out your plan and we get to rejoice in this wonderful life you've given Noah. You are so good and so faithful and we are so amazed at how you work. Continue to heal Andie and Noah, and continue to use Noah and his family for your will. I pray these things, in Your name, Amen.

Waking up this morning, one of the first thoughts that came to me was that my friend, Andie, and her husband Kyle, were finally on the other side of this rough storm that you have, wonderfully, carried them through! Thank you, God!!!

We know that the Johnson's still have a few obstacles to overcome, but we also know that you will continue to guide them, and to go before them, each step of the way. You have promised that to your people.

Thank you for how you've used this precious little baby boy to accomplish your will in the lives of, not only his parents, but SO many others as well. We love you for it!

Thank you for hearing our prayers!

with love from Kirk, Ashita, Nick and Alec

Philipippans 4 verse 6&7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Father God we just thank you for a perfect covering over this wonderful family. Please strengthen them with your power and love.

We have been praying for you all day and are so happy to hear the good news.

We are so blessed!

I write this comment as I praise God for His beautiful work. He has brought us our precious Noah Patrick Johnson with such grace and He has protected MY baby, Andie. Words cannot describe the joy we all feel. Andie called me today and said she had just met her son and that she is so in love! She told me he is absolutely beautiful and she is overcome with gratitude for the magnificent work God performed in our miracle baby. Kyle, Andie, Ella and Noah are so blessed to have the wonderful friends that I have had the privledge to read their comments and come to know them through Andie. Their lives are truly touched. Andie and Kyle are two of the most courageous people I've ever known. Thank you for all of your prayers. I can't wait to meet my grandson and hold him close. Laurie Roche Miller, Grammy of two, soon to be three, much loved and anticipated grandchildren!

Gracious Father,

Thank you for this answer to all of our prayers. You are so merciful and you have used this whole situation TRULY to your glory. We love you so much, and just pray you continued help and provision for baby Noah, Kyle & Andie. Guide them and the doctors through everything that is still to come.

Thank you with all my heart, God, for bringing him to us safely. You are so good!


Comfort for God's people

"In the desert prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken."
Isaiah 40:3-5

Prasie the Lord for having His hand in this beautiful story. Andie, I pray that you will feel comfort soon and that you feel the Holy Spirit upon you. God, I praise you for keeping Noah safe and I ask that you continue to heal him. Father, we love you and praise you, Amen.


I lift up Kyle and Andie's families to you Lord. I can only imagine what Andie's mom is feeling right now. Please give them all peace while they wait and bless them for their continued prayers and faithfulness.
Andie, Kyle, Miss Ella and baby Noah,

It's hard to find the right words sometimes. I've been sitting here for about a half hour trying to think of something encouraging, uplifting, spiritual to say...something! But you know what, all I can really say is that my heart and the prayers of many are with you. Your strength, courage and most of all your faith in the Lord has been amazing. You are very loved. Noah-you've got great parents little good to them;)

In His love,

Father, I pray for Andie as she is in surgery right now. Guide the hands of her doctors and those who will be caring for Noah. Lord, lay your hand upon Kyle while he waits. Amen

Kylie, Andie, sweet Ella, and baby Noah-

I am praying for you today. For God to take your fear and give you peace. I know He has a wonderful plan for your family, and I look forward to seeing it unfold. May He bless your family today and always.

My Prayer:

Father God,
I come to you today for the Johnson family. I pray that you would give them peace today in all that comes their way. Give Andie a peace that would calm her entire being, give her a strong and healthy body. Give Kylie knowledge today as he waits for your will to be done, give little Ella a wonderful day, playing, laughing, a "normal" day for her Father.

I pray now for baby Noah, I pray Lord he comes out strong, please Lord bless this sweet little boy.
I give this family to you today, bless them indeed. In everything they face and go through today may it give you honor and glory.

In Him, AMEN

Andie and Kyle, I hope you both were able to get some rest last night. I love you both and my prayers for you do not stop here. Your faith through all of this has been amazing and I pray you are able to let go of any anxieties and let the Lord carry you today.

Father, I pray that you wrap your arms around Kyle and Andie this morning. Give them peace and let them feel your presence. Do not let them feel anxious or scared, but let them completely surrender their burdens and heavy hearts to You. Lord, do not leave Kyle's side while he is away from Andie during surgery. Turn his eyes to You and give him strength; put his mind at ease. God, keep Andie safe during her surgery. Do not let her feel scared and let Your overwhelming Spirit be upon her. I pray she will not need a transfusion, Lord, but if she does keep her safe. I pray for their team of doctors. Lord, that they would all be rested and that You would give them wisdom and discernment in every situation they face. God, we just ask you to bring Noah in to this world according to your plan. Every step leading to today has been your will and we pray that this will glorify You in every way. All to You be the glory! Amen.

I know it's a commonly used (and misused) passage, but Jeremiah 29:11 has always meant so much to me. Especially at times when I find myself unsure of what God's plans for me really are. Sometimes I need reassurance that even if things don't go MY way, if they are going GOD'S way, it is for my good.

Today I am praying this for Andie, Kyle & little Ella, but I am especially praying it for Noah. As little as he is, God's plans for him are for his good. I am praying with all my heart that we will all be rejoicing with the Johnson's later today when Andie holds her sweet Noah in her arms!!!

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, plans to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

My prayer:

Lord, we don't know what the outcome of today will be. We only know what we so desperately want it to be. We do know, though, that you are in control and that your plans and your ways are completely perfect. Please help the Johnson's to rest in this now.

God, please be with Andie. We pray that everything would go as smoothly as possible. That there wouldn't be any complications. We pray that you would work in such a way that the doctors would be surprised with the ease at which this procedure is able to be performed.

We trust you. We love you! We thank you for the salvation we have through the perfect act of life and death that your Son demonstrated on our behalf. We thank you that through that act we are able to come before your throne with our requests, and are able to KNOW beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are looking out for our best, God.
