Passing on a prayer request

Dear Friends,

I'm writing to ask for your prayers for a little boy named Peter. Peter is almost one year-old, but has been in the hospital for most of his life. He has had many surgeries to try and fix a number of complications in his abdomen. Over the last week, things have taken a turn for the worse, and Peter needs your prayers.

The doctors had planned to perform a surgery to put him "back together" for lack of a better term. His bowels and intestines are all disconnected because of previous surgeries, and they have been feeding him directly into his intestines. This surgery was to be a big step in his road to recovery.

The problem is, they found a small hole in one of his intestines, and now the surgery needs to be postponed. If this hole doesn't heal in the next couple of weeks, they'll continue to feed him only through an IV, and that may result in his liver eventually shutting down, forcing them to do a liver transplant.

I ask that you please pray for the specific intention that this hole in the intestines heals, so the doctors may be able to do the surgery that is needed. Peter's family has four children, and they have a very heavy cross to bear, so I thank you so much for your prayers and support.

Please pass this on to anyone you may know that could pray for Peter and his family.

Sincerely in Christ,

Matthew Pinto
