Autumn Sage Larson
Innocent daughter afflicted with Autism

Please pray for my daughter who was diagnosed with Autism 2 years ago, and is still unable to speak or communicate. She is so withdrawn and in her own lonely little world. She seems to be slipping further away from me with each passing day.

Sage is 4 years old and is unable to speak or communicate despite all interventions thusfar. She is afflicted with Autism and it is so severe, that it has left her with very poor safety awareness, absolutely no speech and complete intolerance to care and affection offered from loved ones. She is so debilitated, that she is unable to effectively express hunger, thirst, or exhaustion-all she can do is cry herself to sleep...I feel her pain and frustration so deeply, and can hardly bear to see her suffering with this dreadful disorder any longer. Please pray with me, for her, and ask that she be blessed with the gift of speech, and that the Autism be cured from her inner being, permanently. Thank you and may you also be greatly blessed through your own kindness.

Heavenly Father,
Please comfort this caring Mother while she struggles with all the responsibities and heart wrenching situations associated with caring for a child with a challenging condition. Help her to know that, indeed, you are in charge. That you do not rest, nor do you slumber. You are there, always. Also, help her to reach out to resources available - especially since she is living so close to great health care facilities, such as MUSC. Give her courage and strengh - let her know that there are folks who have overcome great odds - even people with autism. For example, Dr. Temple Grandin - she can look her up on the web - she has autism and yet has done great things with her life. Comfort the dear little daughter of Dionne, and help her to, in some way, begin to communicate with her Mother. Thank you, Dear Father, for your love and kindness. Amen

Loving and faithful Father, worker of miracles and the Great Physician, we come humbly before your most glorious throne this morning. Dear Lord, another of our children is afflicted with autism. Lord I know this heartache but I also know Lord God the miracles you've worked with my own son. Heavenly Father, touch this precious gift of yours and help her to communicate to her parents. Help her parents to find resources so they can find a way to reach their child, Lord. Autism can be so dibilitating, but Lord, it also opens our eyes to another world so that those of us who are blind may see others who are different.

Gracious Father, I pray for peace in this family and I pray your protection around them and this blessed child, Autumn. Keep her safely in your hand, Lord and send your angels to protect her and keep her from harm.

We make these requests in the name of our most blessed savior, Jesus Christ.

Ms. Larson, my son Marshall also has autism. Have you tried sign language? It will take some time, but it's a wonderful tool, even to the youngest. If you wish to email me, please do!

Dear God, I also add my faith with all the believer's that have sent up prayers that you will have your way in Sage's life. For we know that there is nothing too hard for You. Father I speak healing to Sage's body right now in the name of Jesus, for Your word says "by his stipes we are healed". Father I pray for the mother right now. Give her strength as she cares for this angel that you have entrusted to her. Give her wisdom and understanding as she deals with every situation, and bless her indeed. I thank You for what You have done, and what You are doing even now in both of their lives' in the name of Jesus. Amen

Father God - Send your holy and healing angels to hover over little Autum Sage - mend the broken heart of her mother and let her know that with you all things are possible. Lord, find and send this child to your chosen servant to diagnose and recommend her cure. By faith, let her mother know that You can and will heal this child. We pray this prayer for the little girl Lord - and you directed us to bring the little children unto you. In the name of Jesus, heal her and let her forever give you the Glory.

Dear Lord, Let your plans for Autumn be revealed, to give her loving mother peace in knowing her daughter is precious to you. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Dear Lord Our God,

Please bless Autumn through her autism, and her loved ones through this and all others who need You as well; help all to work out for the best here, and thank You, Lord, for all that You have done,

In Jesus' Name,

P.S.: I hope you won't find this presumptuous, Dionne, but as the +decade-older brother of an autist child, I don't think there is ever really going to be a "cure" for autism. Rather, I think a better method is to look for a treatment, a program or lesson that can help the children to talk and so forth...though I have to admit, you are probably better-versed in autism than I am, and your daughter sounds more severely affected than my brother. In any event, I hope this helps, and God bless your family!

May all people learn to believe in the awesome power of prayer. Sage is living proof that it works. The healing process has begun. God bless you all.
