The good news continues for the daughter of Grammy nominated CCM singer/songwriter Natalie Grant. Eight-year-old Grace was discharged from the hospital on Thursday after a 6 day stay in the Intensive Care Unit for pneumonia, an Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) infection, and a partially collapsed lung. The situated appeared very serious from the onset and Grant took to social media asking for prayers for her daughter's health and updating everyone on Gracie's journey.
"We are headed HOME!!!," Natalie shared on Thursday. "We are thanking God for the miraculous recovery Gracie has had. When we took her to the emergency room, doctors said she was at an 11 out of 12, with 12 being the absolute worst it can get on the respiratory scale. She shouldn't have been able to still walk. Yet here she is, 6 days in the ICU and now headed home. She is such a strong little girl and our God is such a faithful Father...She is still not 100%, and will be fighting pneumonia for awhile. But we are believing she will get stronger everyday."
Throughout these scary last few days, Natalie has regularly turned to Scripture and put her trust in God. Yesterday, she was praying on this verse from Hebrews 4:16: Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Natalie reflected on these words saying, "Literally millions of you have approached God's throne right along with me on behalf of my Gracie in the last few days. At last check, the reach on the posts asking for prayer was at 13.5 MILLION PEOPLE. Mind blowing. Truly. And that's because you shared and asked for prayer in your own circles. The encouragement this has been to our family is deeper than words can express. We have felt so incredibly loved and carried these last few days. Thank you."
She added, "Let's continue with this same type of boldness - coming to the throne of God with CONFIDENCE on behalf of our families, marriages, communities...lets pray for our pastors in this way. For our leaders in this way. For our children in this way. Prayer. Works."
Please continue to join us in praying for Grace and all those battling illnesses of the body, mind and spirit.
