He has been our help

"We must trust God or remain without hope. We dare not look to others, for we have discovered their incompetence. We cannot rely on ourselves, for we have learned by bitter experience the folly of self-confidence. We are compelled to look to the Lord alone." -Charles Spurgeon

It is not the medical staff at LifeCare that is keeping Ian alive. It is not us talking to Ian that is keeping him alive. We must look to the Lord alone Ian's healing. Ian must look to the Lord alone for his strength.

"My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for he will pluck my feet out of the net." Psalm 25:15

God is Ian's healer and provider. God is our strength and our refuge. He will deliver us.

"we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead. He delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again" 2 Cor. 1:9-10

Today is Ben Murphy's birthday. Pray that he can talk to his older brother today.
