Do any of you guys listen to Sanctus Real? The lead singer, Matthew Hammit, and his wife Sarah just welcomed baby Bowen into the world last week. They discovered a couple of months ago that Bowen had Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS).

Bowen had heart surgery yesterday, and at first things looked great. But last night, things took a turn for the worst and Matt and Sarah were told that he may not make it. A nurse pumped his heart by hand until the doctor arrived, and then he underwent emergency surgery while his father watched. Today, he is on full life support. It's my understanding that right now they are playing the waiting game, and things could go either way.

This is the prayer request from the Hammit's website, Bowen's Heart.

"Please pray for our sweet little baby boy that he would grow to love God and see his unique heart as a gift. Please pray that he would not endure too much physical pain; this is a lot for a child to bear. Pray for our little girls to find peace and understanding, that they would come to love and know God more through this experience. Please pray for Matthew and I as parents and partners, that God would give us enduring strength and unity. Also, please pray for our parents as they walk with us through what is to come. Thank you for your love and support".

Their story has been talked about for the last few days over and over on K-LOVE, and I know that millions of people are already praying for them all across the country, but I figured that it wouldn't hurt to try to generate just a few more.
