Father, we ask that You protect life in this nation and the sanctity of it. Bless this infant and his family with Your strength.

Guinness World Records on Wednesday announced that an Alabama boy has set the record for the most premature baby to survive.

Curtis Means, who is now 16 months old, was born 132 days — almost 19 weeks — premature on July 5, 2020 at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB). At birth, he weighed less than a pound (14.8 ounces).

The boy had a twin who did not survive the birth, which took place when the mother was 21 weeks and one day pregnant. . . .

“The numbers say that babies at this age will not survive. Mum’s question to me was: ‘Can we give my babies a chance?'”

“I’ve been doing this almost 20 years… but I’ve never seen a baby this young be as strong as he was,” Sims added. “There was something special about Curtis.”

Curtis, with the help of a ventilator, was discharged on April 6 after 275 days in the hospital. . . .

“We do not know what all the future will hold for Curtis since there is no one else like him,” Sims said in the release. “He started writing his own story the day he was born. That story will be read and studied by many and, hopefully, will help improve care of premature infants around the world.”

Oh my goodness, WOW. What a Praise for life and for miracles. Our God is a miracle working God and only he knows the how, the why and the when of such events and stories.

This story is so positive and uplifting, esp. right in the middle of the angst and waiting for a judgment on abortion by our highest court. May the power and the wisdom of God, the Creator flow through hearts and minds for understanding, for moral righteousness and for His ultimate forgiveness and restoration of a nation.

God grant your blessings, grace, love and protection over young Curtis Means; may his life be a reflection of your goodness and greatness and be an honor and glory unto you. May you continue to grant and honor his mom’s plea for a chance and may she honor your blessing and grace unto her and unto Curtis, that she would teach him about your Love and about Jesus, our hope for life. Thank you, O Lord, for your mercies.

Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow🙌…May the testimony of Curtis’ life and his parents who prayed and prayed for him be a great encouragement.
Before the foundations of the world, God saw value and purpose in Curtis’ life. .
Matthew 10:30-31.. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. 31) So don’t fear, you are more valuable to God than many sparrows.
Heavenly Father, May his story and Your awesome goodness spread far and wide. Richly Bless and protect Curtis and his beautiful family to grow stronger in You, to give You all the glory for the great things You have done and will continue to do.
In Jesus name🙏
