BJ's body does not have the ability to fight infection right now. He does have an infection that Dr.'s cannot find. They are trying to grow cultures from blood and other fluids. They have tried to reposition him in such a way as to allow minimum stress to his lungs. His Sat's are in the 80's, his blood pressure remains low. They are pulling out any tube that he really does not need at the moment, and repositioning others.

It is crucial that this infection be knocked down. Once again, it appears to be a spiritual attack. I know you are praying. Please don't let up.

In His Name,

Bj's dad

Father God !! In this hour we united as the Body of Christ to take authority over Satan and any evil spirit that is attacking BJ this very moment. In the Name of Yahshua take your hands off our brother BJ !!!! I pray the doctors miraculously can identify and stop the infection before it does any more damage. Give the staff wisdom from on high and quickly. Please breath new life in BJ's lungs so he can breath and thus bring up his SAT's. and bring up BJ's blood pressure that has been low. There is nothing you cannot do Father. In the name of Christ our Savior who has defeated satan at the Cross we pray..Amen....We are standing right there with you Deanna and Brent and continue to pray without ceasing. Love Phil

Father God, You have seen BJ through so much over the last month and a half, please continue to guard Him and guide his body back to health. Take this infection from him, heal his kidneys, and most of all, give the docs wisdom. We know what YOu are capable of...just the touch of Your garment heals a whole body!! Please touch your precious servant and heal him so that he can continue to spread the name and love of your Son! In Jesus' Name- Amen.
Stay strong, faithful and true. The Father is on YOUR side. Keep casting out Satan from that room. Do a Jericho walk around the hospital or on the floor of his room. Keep praising the Lord for all He does! God be with you. Praying with everything we have here. Love to all of you!

2 Corinthians 4: 16-18
We are not discouraged; rather, although our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this momentary affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to what is seen but to what is unseen; for what is seen is transitory, but what is unseen is eternal.

Dear Lord,

Please bless BJ's physicians with wisdom and ability. Please guide them to figure things out that they cannot on their own. Please bless them for the hard work they do, for caring so much about BJ's welfare. It is a hard job to do, and sometimes it takes an emotional toil for them, as well. Please Father, make your loving presence known to them, encourage them, and work in their lives.

Brent, Deanna, Lauren and Whitney, you are persevering. God will lift you up.

Dear Jesus,
Please send dear brothers and sisters to the Higgins today for encouragement. Their load is heavy, and while many share their burden from a distance, sometimes we need the physical touch and presence of fellow believers to lean on and to just be with. Thank you for often loving us through the arms of friends.

Thank you for your tender care. Please continue to heal BJ. Keep him comfortable and at peace. We ask this in Jesus' holy name.

Isaiah 40:26 "Life your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name, Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."

Father, perfect your strength in BJ's weakness. Please fight the infection that he cannot battle, strengthen the lungs with which he cannot fully breathe, mobilize the kidneys that he cannot use, heal all broken areas known and unknown. Our God, our Father, our Healer, our Savior, we come together crying out to You on behalf of our beloved brother BJ. Lord, if there is a key that the doctors need to unlock this mystery, please provide it quickly. Touch BJ with your life and your power, Lord. Again, God--don't allow Satan to have any place in this hospital room at all. May it instead be filled so completely with your presence that Satan runs away in terror, knowing of his defeat.

Keep telling Your story through BJ and His family, Lord. Give them your moment-by-moment grace, and strengthen us that we might not let up in our prayers--

AMEN

Dear Lord,
We come before you, again, asking that you deliver BJ from whatever infection is in his body. Father, give the doctors strength and perseverence as they seek to find the source of the infection and treat it.
Be close to BJ, Lord, wrap your arms around him. Protect him from the evil one! We don't know why his numbers are not stable, Father, but we pray that you would move in BJ's body and that you will increase his SAT's, his blood pressure, and lower his white blood cell count. We know that you have the power and the authority of all of this, Father, and we are grateful for that.
Jesus, please make your presence known to Brent, Deanna, Lauren and Whitney right now. Surround them with your sweet presence and give them encouragement as they wait. Thank you for their love for you and their commitment to caring for BJ. Thank you for the blessing and the shining light that the Higgins family is to those around them.
Jesus, we know that you are in control of all things, and we place BJ, Brent, Deanna, Lauren, Whitney, and all of the medical staff involved in your hands, because you can provide for them better than anyone of us can.
We love you, and pray these things in the precious name of your son, Jesus. Amen.

Satan understandably views BJ as a huge threat. Not only because of his drive to see people come to know Christ, but also because of the amount of people being reached through his story and hospitalization. Of course he wants to attack him and put him down for the count.

I just got done praying that God would banish satan from room 2001 as well as the whole hospital. That he'd make it so he couldn't 'set foot anywhere on the premises'. There is a physical battle going on here, but there is also a spiritual one, I believe. Let's pray for both.

As the enemy seeks to destroy without rest, may we build BJ up in prayer and intercession throughout this country without our hearts growing faint. Keep your power close to everyone in your spirit, Lord. May you give peace and joy to his family in this time. May the lost souls in the hospital right now see YOUR love, and YOUR light through the family, and may the enemy be defeated by the winning of those lost souls. May they see the peace that can only come from you, even if there is one person there searching, let him or her reach out to your loving and merciful arms of grace. May the enemy of our souls be defeated even NOW in BJ's sickness. May you raise BJ up to continue his amazing life of humble service. We thank you for lives like those that BJ leads. Banish the enemy and make great the days of your faithful servant. To you and your perfect will be all glory and praise.

Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 6If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort

Dear Deanna and Brent,

I just learned of BJ's illness last week and like so many others, have been a frequent visitor to this site since. My heart aches for your whole family in following all the ups and downs of the past weeks...especially here today in the midst of another valley.

Our whole family is praying for yours several times a day. I pray especially now that God would send strength: to BJ's body to fight off this infection and get his kidneys working again, and to his parents who have to stand by and watch. That the Holy Spirit who was promised to us by Jesus to comfort, would fill room 2001 and your tired hearts with peace and healing.

I return to my night shift job tonight in a different hospital laboratory across town, where I will be praying throughout the night for you all. Know that I will be taking extra special care and awareness with my work tonight with the hope that my colleagues who are working on BJ's labs and cultures will do the same.

And Higgins family, may I say...you are running the race really well.

All blessings,

Your word comforts us in this time. As believers, you are our HOPE! We hold onto nothing else but you, Father. I pray for BJ, Father. Heal his body. Restore him to a state of health that will leave the doctors scratching their heads and his family singing praises upon Your name. Father, we know YOU and YOU ALONE are capable of taking this broken body and healing young BJ to perfect condition.
Father, I lift up his family to you. I do not know this family, until today I had never heard of them. Unlike me, Lord, you DO know them. Lord, reach down and embrace them. Comfort them during this time and GOD, I'm believing at this moment that you are preparing them to witness a miracle-directed and produced in the realms of heaven that only you and the angels are aware of.

In the authority of Jesus's name we bind the attacks of the enemy. We declare that all attempts to destroy BJ have been confounded and we are victorious. Satan, We command that you take your hand off of our brother. You have already been defeated at the cross of calvary and every weapon that you had has been stripped from you. You no longer have any authority and you can only seem like a roaring lion. We agree together that the spirit of fear is bound and the spirit of life reigns. We speak life and not death according to the power that works within us. We decree that this infection has been nullified.

Jesus,
We thank you for the authority that you have given us over the enemy. We know that in Your matchless Name everything whether in heaven, or on the earth or under the earth must bow. Thank You most of all for your love which comforts when we are in distress and gives us peace in the midst of raging storms. We love YOU and give you praise for another victory won in Your Name.

We love you so much!

Jes, Todd & Andrew

Dear Lord, We again come to you asking you to intercede for BJ and to help the marvelous medical team find the infection and treat it. We know his body is unable to fight itself. We ask you to touch his kidneys, and help them to work. There have been so many ups and downs in the spiritual battle going on. Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world. We ask you to defeat him, and hold BJ tightly, as you have been. Please, please touch his body and bring healing. We love and thank you again and again for all you've done. Touch the medical team...bless them richly for their tireless efforts on BJ's behalf. Hold Brent, Deanna, Lauren and Whitney tightly too....They are brave beyond words...Thank you Jesus. We love You and them. (aunt) Lisa

In Jesus name we bind the enemy....you are NOT WELCOME IN BJ's BODY.....FLEE!!! FOR the BLOOD of Jesus was shed for BJ and BJ belongs to the Lord!! You cannot have your way with him. I lift up my voice with those who content for BJ's life and ORDER you in Jesus' mighty name to LEAVE!!! The Enemy CANNOT prevail for the almight God has ALREADY been victorious. He has conquered sin and death, he has allaowed an intercessor on our behalf, and the battle is WON. Lord, we cry out for a miracle. Reveal the infection. Make it appear to the Doctors so that it may be CRUSHED. May all of the hidden parts in BJ's weak body be CLEANSED in your MIGHTY name. Wash him anew, expel the infection and banish it from BJ's body it as far as the east is from the west. Lord, we pray for your divine will to continually be revealed to BJ's family, to his friends, and his church family. May they be lifted in the knowledge that our spirits cannot be won by the enemy. YOU alone are God, the maker of heaven and earth, our life sustainers, and the friend above all friends. We cry to you in a way that only the spirit can intercede with groanings too deep for word. We know you hear BJ's parents, his family and friends. Please, make your presence known today in a way more powerful than ever before. May they feel your presence around them, lifting them up. May BJ feel your presence and your comfort.......in Jesus' name
