Prayer request: 4-years old suffered severe burns

*If you are reading this post because you got my plea for help on your blog - thank you.



Yesterday a family in Tatarstan - probably a place that many have not even heard of, suffered a terrible tragedy. Their 4 -year boy found a lighter, and was playing with it. Unfortunately, he set a couch on fire, and if it was not for his 2-year old sister, who saw the fire and immediately work up their parents - they all most likely would have perished, as the fire quickly spread.

The family is alright, even though they have lost a lot to the fire, but the worst of all is the injuries their son received. Doctors report burns on 50% of his body, but do not yet know the exact severity and whether the boy will need skin grafts.

Please include little Maksim in your prayers tonight. He has a long and difficult road to recovery ahead of him. His family will be strained financially, but most of all - they have to endure alongside their boy and watch him struggle with these horrific injuries.

Brother and sisters, lets pray for this little boy's recovery. May the Lord soothe his pain and make it so the burns are not deep enough for him to have skin grafts. May he hold them all in his arms and pour out love. Love you, little Maksim. Please hang in there!

Thank you all! I will try to get some updates on this family if I can, but doubt that something will be known. I have contacted the reporters, asking them to at least let the family know that so many of us are praying and thinking about them all and especially their little boy.
