I got this in my e-mail from a good friend. If you go to her site and look at the pictures, be prepared, they are graphic and very sad to look at. http://madelinelester.com/Current/Current.htm

I am going to forward to you a VERY URGENT PRAYER REQUEST from my friend, Melissa, regarding her sweet little 3-year old neice (Sweet little Maddie calls Melissa "Aunt Momo")
PLEASE send this on to any Prayer lists you may have, Churches, etc... and ask them to do the same... and feel free to contact Melissa with replies and Prayers... She faithfully forwards them all on to Cindy & David (Maddie's parents) who can use all the encouragement they can get!!! This family needs a MIRACLE!!!!

Subj: AN URGENT CALL FOR PRAYER FOR BABY MADELINE
Date: 9/22/07 4:26:07 PM Eastern Daylight Time
From: XXXXXXXXX

Baby Madeline~3 years old in need of URGENT PRAYER!!!!!! MADDIE NEEDS A MIRACLE!!!! September 22, 2007

BABY MADELINE is in need of URGENT DAILY PRAYER / THIS HAS BEEN HER WORSE WEEK EVER! BORN WITH A HEART DEFECT called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS) She had her 3rd open heart surgery 8+weeks ago and is STILL FIGHTING FOR HER LIFE in I.C.U in Seattle, Washington! SHE ALMOST DIED THIS WEEK from a VERY AGGRESSIVE BACTERIAL INFECTION THAT RAVAGED HER LITTLE BODY. CPR WAS PERFORMED FOR 2 HOURS...40% oxygen level 90 breaths per minute~she turned blue all over. CPR was performed for two hours to save her life until the ECMO life support machine was ready.
BABY MADELINE CAN ONLY BE ON ECMO LIFE SUPPORT FOR 10 DAYS...(only a few days left) RISK INVOLVED~more infection. IMMUNE SYSTEM DEPLETED!

Kidneys took a hit so she's on temporary kidney dialysis, as well! RIGHT LUNG FLUID is massive...needs to be gone so she can be strong to come off life support when the time expires. Extent of damage to her organs or body or motor skills suffered is unknown from CPR. Manually tried to remove fluid on right side yesterday & SHE BLED.2-3 BODY VOLUMES for 6 hours before they could get the bleeding under control Her blood is so thin from the life support!!! Her website will feed you the most up to date information on Baby Madeline so that you know specifically how to pray! It will be very obvious to you once you read her website and see the pictures of how very, very sick she has become since the picture taken down below...how this precious child is in heavy need of urgent prayer!!!!


HER LIFE IS HANGING IN THE BALANCE AS I TYPE THIS! 3 YEARS OLD MADDIE needs a MIRACLE TURNING around healing! I feel helpless wanting to help but I'm just little me! You have the ability to reach MANY MANY PEOPLE WHO WILL PRAY FOR MADDIE!
EVERYDAY THAT GOES BY IS CRITICAL! She's so FRAGILE!!!!!!! HER BODY REVEALS SHE HAS DONE BATTLE! It ruptures your heart to see the pictures. IT'S HEARTBREAKING! You have a way of generating WAY MORE PRAYER SUPPORT for her than little me could ever do on my own~please PRAY! I beg of you! THANK YOU SO MUCH! In ourselves we are little and can't generate much but connecting together in CHRIST we can accomplish BIG THINGS FOR HIM...for MADDIE!

Please forward this to your friends, this baby girl needs a miracle.

Maddie http://madelinelester.com/Current/Current.htm

I am going to try to organize a prayer vigil where everyone can pray and light a candle at the same time. 9:00 EST tomorrow (Monday 9/24) night. I also ask anyone that read this, to please stop what you are doing and if possible light a candle and get on your knees and pray for healing for Maddie and strength for her parents. Tomorrow night Sept 24th.

Here is a time zone chart - it will be at

9:00 PM EST
8:00 PM Central time
7:00 PM Mountain time
6:00 PM Pacific time

http://www.time.gov/

You can also light an on line candle for her at http://www.gratefulness.org/candles/search.cfm?l=eng

Do a 'group' search for "momo" and you will see the candles lit just for her. They will stay lit for 48 hours.

I will definitely pray for a miracle for her. I believe that God can completely heal her. And I'll pray that he'll help her parents till he heals her.
