Richard Kai-Sean Floyd
Prayers and Action for a Successful Bone-Marrow Transplant


Pray for a successful bone marrow transplant for Richard, for minimal side effects from the many medicines, for minimal effects on Richard's normal development, and for strength for the family, for this truly is a family ordeal.

Richard Kai-Shawn Floyd was born with a life-threatening immunodeficiency. He is currently undergoing bone marrow transplant which, when successful, is a CURE.

God has already blessed Richard with a PERFECT bone marrow match in his big sister, Harmony, which greatly increases the likelihood of success.

Despite that blessing, Richard has a long road ahead. Having this procedure at 3 months of age will delay some of his normal development. The stress on his parents will be high. His siter will wonder what's going on, putting more
stress on his family.

What WE can do.

Pray for the success of the transplant.
Pray for minimal side effects.
Pray for Richard's development.
Pray for the family; this IS an ordeal for all.

Jump in and help.
Go be with Richard while someone takes Rachhel and Armond out to lunch. Invite Harmony over for a party just because.
Give lots of hugs.
Use your imagination.

Does this work? You bet!
How do I know?
Been there. Done that.

My prayers for you, little one, go out to our heavenly father. Dear Heavenly Father, we hold this family up to you, wrap your loving arms around them and heal them. Give them the strength to continue thru this one day. Give them the strength to accept your will be done. In the name of your precious and Holy Son, Jesus Christ. Amen

Armond and Rachel,
our hearts are breaking for you.As parents we can't imagine what you must be going through.May our Heavenly Father provide you with everything that you need during this time of great trial for all of you.And if there's something that we can do to help fill a need please contact us and we'll do what we can to help....
I am at a loss. I do not have the words to pray for you,my heart is so heavy. I ask that the Spirit of our Father pray for you all in accordance with His Will....He knows what it is that you need.He knows.When we cry He cries.Not only is Richard His,so are we all and when we hurt He hurts.
There is nothing that I can say to encourage you or uplift you or to lighten your burden because I have not been where you are....
May our Father strengthen you and keep you in His Mighty hands and may you feel His calm in the midst of this storm in your lives.........
Praying for you all...

Heavenly Father, We confess at times it's hard to even know what or how to pray when our hearts are so heavy, but we thank you that your precious Holy Spirit intercedes for us. We ask that you would bring peace to this family, Lord that first and formost they will continue to have the faith they need to trust you with their precious little one. It's so hard as a parent to imagine that anyone could love your child as much as you. Help then Lord to always have confidence in Your love for Richard. Bring healing to his little body, and relief from pain as he is so tiny to be going through such invasive treatment. Place your loving arms around hima and shield him from the dangers of the chemotherapy. Be also with Harmony as she has no idea what a wonderful gift she is going to be giving her brother. Yet she will not be able to understand herself why she will be going through so much. Help her not to be afraid but give her also a heavenly peace that only you can give. Hold her hand Lord through her surgery and keep her safe from and complications. We claim Your promise Lord, that You will never leave us nor forsake us. We ask that Your presence will be felt in the very room that this family will be spending so much time during isolation, so much that even the medical staff will even sense you are near. All the glory and praise to you Lord! Thank you for your love for us!
Amen

Most High and Glorious God,

We come to You now, knowing that before we even compose these prayers that You have answered them. I thank You for the miracle of life that You have given us. It is the ultimate expression of how we are made in Your likeness - how we too can (by Your plan) create life, seemingly out of nothing. To make an "is" where there "was not". Thank you, Father, for the lives you have allowed our dear friends Rachel and Armond to create! Their children are their blessings!

Father, You know exactly what is wrong with Baby Richard, as well as exactly what is needed to make him well. Please be with the doctors, lab techs, nurses, and all that are caring for him. Give them sound minds and judgement, courage, and strength.

Please bring Light to his family and friends - light in place of the "heaviness" that we all feel, and light in place of the shadow that has been cast in our lives from his disease. Please give us "right faith, certain hope, and perfect charity. Lord give us all insight and wisdom, so we may always discern Your holy and true will."

Finally Father, we praise You for the good You have done despite this evil. I am amazed at the network of hearts You have brought together, encircling this family. I pray that this outpouring of love will not stop even after Richard is resored - Armond, Rachel, Harmony, and Richard are all such blessings to our lives! Thank You Father for them. Let us always give glory to You, Who gives us hope for a new day and the strength to make it there.

It is in Your Son's pure and holy name I pray this all,

AMEN!!!

We love you guys!!! Please let us know more ways we can help; we are always here for you. So much love, Kate and Micah (aka: "Kathryn Marshall") :)

Dear Lord,

Bless our dear friends, Armond, Rachel, Harmony and Richard. We pray for little Richard, that he would not have any lasting side effects from this chemotherapy. We pray that this bone marrow transplant will be a success and he will grow to be a strong, happy and healthy boy. Keep all of the possible ill effects from the chemo from Richard. We thank you for your wondrous way of making Harmony a perfect match for Richard. Be with Harmony as she goes through the procedure to be the donor. Keep her safe in your arms and keep the pain from her. Let her grow up to know what a special thing she has done for her brother. Lord, also keep your loving arms around Armond and Rachel. They need to feel your presence and comfort to get through this time. Let them know that you will not leave them, that you will bring them all through this, and that there are a lot of people, family and friends holding them up in prayer. Give the doctors the wisdom they need to treat Richard. Help them to make the right decisions for his care. We pray for complete healing for Richard, Lord. Thank you for the Floyd family and the friendship we have with them. Thank you that Rich and Fonda can be here to support them through this. Thank you for the strength that you are giving all of them. Thank you also for their faith in you.

We pray all of this in Jesus Precious Name,

Amen

Armond & Rachel & family,

We love you and are praying for a successful transplant.
