Welcome to my blog! This is mainly the story of my son, Brayton Cade Moak. His life is a testimony to me, and many others. I hope this blog encourages those of you who are going through difficult times, who have sick kids, who are lacking faith, and who need a reason to believe in miracles. I never thought that I would see a miracle, much less give birth to one. My son, my precious angel, is my miracle. His story, as well as his father's and my story, will hopefully fill your spirit with love! God is good!

Brayton's Prayer

I just typed a really long blog and I lost it!  So here it goes again:

A lot has happended since my last post! First, we reached our 1 year mark for having the tracheostomy. It was a day full of thoughts about all of the laughs and cries that I have missed out on, and also thoughts on how blessed I am to be able to see Brayton's smiling face every day!

In November, we went for a scope. There was a little bit of improvement!!! Words can't express how good those words were to hear!

We go back on Dec. 11 for another scope. I told my mom a few days ago that I wanted to write a short rhyming prayer to get everyone to pray. The only thing that kept coming back to my mind was a prayer I prayed while Brayton was in the hospital getting the trach and it doesn't rhyme at all. The prayer was, "God, please heal Brayton's airway perfectly and completly!" Such a simple little prayer but with so much power!

I have passed this prayer around and so have others. The more I think about the prayer itself, the more I realize that it truly is the perfect prayer for my miracle! You see, Brayton, like the prayer, is little (weighing in at a whoppin' 19lbs after a stomach bug this past week) and simple. He is easily amused, he smiles at anything and he is simply a happy baby boy! Yet the most AMAZING thing about Brayton to me is the POWER he has! He has the power to make me or anyone else for that matter do pretty much anything he wants! Haha. But he also has the power of God pouring out of him at every point in his life. In his short 16 months, God has worked wonders through him. My son is God's messenger. Lives have been touched. People we have never met, send me facebook messages telling me how he has touched them. It is AMAZING!

So, I ask everyone to please, please pray what I have decided to call "Brayton's prayer"...simple words with A LOT of power! I KNOW that God has something amazing in store and that only HE can heal my sweet man! All it take is "a little improvement" at a time!

  1. I saw a post on one of my friends FB. We were lucky enough to have our own miracle for 19 1/2 yrs. I never thougtht about how many people's lives he touched in the last 6 1/2 yrs. of his life. Love your prayer, but I will add one more sentence - God we pray for this miracle, but if it is not in "your will", I ask for Grace for this family to enjoy every second of your Angel's life. Amen. (Ok so technically it's 2 sentences.) Been there and walked in your shoes... Will be praying for your sweet baby. Sincerely, Sherry McGee - mcgeeboxrs@aol.com
