Pray for Kate

I've posted about this a few times before, but since it's so close to Christmas, it's also close to my heart.

This little girl is not your ordinary five year old. She's a gift. She's a fighter. She's innocence, hope, and faith. She's an inspiration to those in need. And she's a little bit of perspective for a girl like me. She's Kate Mcrae and she's in need of lots of prayers.

Kate is battling a rare brain tumor and is spending Christmas in a children's hospital in Arizona, fighting through round five of chemo. In the blink of an eye, Kate and her family, her parents, Aaron and Holly, and her siblings, Olivia and Will, had their entire world turned upside down; yet, they still maintain a strong faith that Kate will one day have her life back. I've been reading Kate's blog for months now and everyday, she helps me redirect my focus.

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Til on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand

-In Christ Alone, The Newsboys
