This morning I prayed at the icon corner for Abby to receive the help she desperately needs with her language delay, and wasn`t likely to get this side of Christmas unless we pay between £50 and £70 per session with a private therapist.
I venerated every icon and asked the prayers of the saints in our Icon Corner, namely the Theotokos, St Elizabeth and St Barbara the New Martyrs, Great Martyr St Barbara,St Herman of Alaska, St Spyridon, St David of Wales, St John the Wonderworker, St John of Kronstadt, St Euphrosynos the Cook, St Nicholas, St Helen and St Constantine, St Lucy, St George and St Demetrios, St Joseph of Arimathea, St Tatiana of Rome, St John Chrysostom, the Holy Angels, St Seraphim of Sarov and St Xenia of St Petersburg.
I begged for Abby to receive help.
At 3pm I had a phone call from the Speech Therapist who saw Abby at the hospital yesterday.
She said she had been thinking a lot about Abby and her obvious need for help before she starts school, and she had discussed the case with her colleagues, one of whom covers a different area but would be willing to fit Abby in for free NHS sessions once a week during the summer holidays.
I am stunned at such an amazing and fast response to heartfelt prayer.
There is nothing to be said but Glory to God ! and may God abundantly bless the speech therapist who showed such love and concern to Abby that she has arranged this for her.
