Hey everyone, we’re holding a day of prayer & fasting for little Sophie and the entire Millard family tomorrow (Wednesday)! Please join us as we lift them up in prayer! And spread the word!
I will say a prayer for Sophie. GOD bless.
May God be with all of you. I hope she gets better soon!!
I will be praying for Sophie and the entire family. May God work a blessing and bring peace and comfort to you all!!
Poor thing! She does look like she isn’t feeling well at all in that picture! Praying that she is feeling much better very soon!
We will be lifting Sophie up to our Heavenly Father. May He keep her in His loving arms. May God keep the doctors hands steady and focused as they treat her and may God wrap His loving arms around you two and keep you strong. Much love
We are praying here in KY and asking all our friends to do the same.
thanx for the word robby! we’re praying here in so. ore. and gonna pass the word here also. Kelly, we’ll definaely join in the fasting and prayer tomorrow!!! love ya’ll
Praying for you all down here in West Palm Beach. The South Fla. Fair sent me news that the show was cancelled.
We are praying here in Florida for Sophie for healing and for you and your wife for strength. God healed my youngest son, Evans brother, who had lung problems a few days after his birth. He was put on ECMO (like a heart lung bypass) and had a 5% chance of living yet he is healthy today 12 years later. Problems with his heart just disapeared. His lungs healed and he was able to get off the ventilator. The doctors said he would always have an oxygen tank with him to breathe but he never needed it and is completely healthy. Praise God! No matter what the doctors say, no matter how bad it is, know that God is here with you both and with Sophie. Know that we are praying and expecting a miracle. God is an amazing God and he can do anything. Expect the healing for Sophie. Don’t let the negative diagnosis or the seriousness of her illness stop you from knowing that God can heal her completely. I remember with my son just saying he will live and he will not die over and over. But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” (Luke 18:27)
I am lifting sophie up in prayer. She is adorable. I hope you she feels better soon.
Continuing to pray for Sophie’s healing and your strength.
I continue to keep Sophie, Bart, Shannon and the family in my prayers.

Lord Jesus we just lift this little one up to you and ask for your healing touch. Lord give the doctors the exact knowledge of how to treat little Sophie. Also Lord give Shannon & Bart peace and strength to get through this trying time. Lord we know You are the great Physician and we will glorify You in all of this. In Jesus precious name we pray. Amen.
Just wanted you to know we have been keeping you all in pray regarding your daughter Sophie. Although we were so excited to see you in tonight in concert the reality is your first ministry is your family!
Some encouragement I thought you might appreciate is that our daughter Alexandra had RSV and pneumonia when she was a was just an infant. By God’s grace and mercy she is a healthy full of life beautiful 11 year old girl!
We will continue to pray for her healing as well as for rest and patience for you and your wife as you want upon the Lord!
God Bless you,
Angie & Mike Meridionale
Praying for baby Sophie to be healed!
Praying for Bart and Shannon to rest in His peace!
Praying for your sweet baby girl…
I pray for God to heal sophie as only he can. I pray for strength for the whole Millard family during this tough time. May you rest in God’s hope and love.
Continuing to lift that sweet baby and her family up to the Lord. I understand she’s doing better (from Bart’s tweet on twitter!) and it’s definitely a PRAISE THE LORD!
I am praying for your daugther. Our son has RSV, it was scary experience. It was our faith and everyone’s prayers that got us through. Remember there is a silver lining. After 7 days in the hospital our son came home. The medicines and treatments where tough, but we did it. I am glad to say he is 8 now and healthier than his siblings. It took years to get his immunities up to par but we did it and so will you. Thank you for being you. Your group is the reason we are such strong Christian’s. You are the first Christian band I truly looooved. The 1st Christian band I saw in concert. Your faith, made me more faithful and a better Mother, Wife, Friend & Christian. God Bless You & Your Family during this tough time.
My husband heard of baby Sophie on the radio this morning; he immediately called me to interceed on her behalf…and I did! We are standing in faith for her COMPLETE recovery. We are speaking life to her through the blood and stripes of Jesus! We say she shall LIVE and NOT die and DECLARE THE WORKS OF THE LORD!! Our prayer of agreement is founded on the fact that any disease (Deut. 28) is part of the curse and we have been redeemed from the curse (Gal. 3:13)!
Keep your eyes focused on GOD’S Word, not the word of the doctors, and as Jesus said to Jairus, “Fear not; only believe!”
In your name we pray to continue to hold baby Sophie in your arms. We lift her to you Lord to touch her and continue giving her and her mommy and daddy strength. Lord we thank you already for making Sophie better and continue her beautiful life healthy and strong. May you always Bless her and her beautiful family. In Your name we pray.
Father….I lift up Bart & wife to you….give them patients, understanding & good decision making….I pray for wisdom for the doctoers as they treat there baby….And Lord I pray that you you would give Your healing touch to this little baby & help her body heal…Amen
I wanted to know that you, your family and Sophie are in my prayers. I always get teary-eyed when I hear stories like your daughter’s.
After having a terrible car accident as a teenager many years ago, the doctors said I’d never have children. How thrilled my husband and I were to have our first child, although the delivery was very complicated. Then, in just over a year, we were so blessed to have our second. However, once again the delivery was difficult, so I had a tubal.
Three years later, I had to have surgery due to the complications from both deliveries. The doctors never knew I was pregnant once again! What a MIRACLE Amanda was when she was born!
Less than three months later, she underwent open-heart surgery at Egleston in Atlanta. It was the first time in my life that I truly understood what letting go and trusting God was all about. And He did. It was amazing.
I know about the long days in the hospital. I know about rushing your child BACK to the hospital everytime she had problems breathing. I know now, for the first time, how precious life truly is.
As I was there at the hospital, I saw–literally–angels dressed up like doctors and nurses. I remember how much time my daughter’s surgeon took every day with me, even when he was no longer her doctor.
I mainly remember one night in ICU when I was so exhausted, a nurse came on duty and told me to go downstairs and rest, and she’d call me if her condition changed. It was so hard to let go and trust a complete stranger to watch over her, but I finally did.
That night, downstairs in the parent room, I wept bitterly thinking about how awesome the Lord truly was to give me children even though “man” said it was impossible. He woke me up and gave me these words, and I wanted to share them with you. My prayer has been that I will one day find someone who will put these words into a song.
After four years, my daughter Amanda is doing great, but I still think about those dedicated people at CHOA who took such good care of my baby.
I pray that the Lord will give you a testimony about His goodness and His provision as He has done for me.
Thanks for listening.
Strangers Guarding Over Her
I walked with hesitancy through the great white doors
And saw a whole new world before me.
People were everywhere, yet all was quiet
Only soft heartbeats pulsating in harmony.
I gasped for air as I looked everywhere
At mothers waiting tirelessly close by
Delicate cradles holding their precious treasures
With uncertainties and questions of “Why?”
Little lives were fighting for every breath
Their hearts controlled by machines;
There were tubes and monitors engulfing the bedsides
And each child lay there helplessly.
I watched as these strangers wandered about
In a world so intense with pain;
Their focus on lives that were not their own
But caring for them just the same.
Then I glimpsed at my own child’s fragile body
With tears welling up inside,
But someone beside her
Who had never once left her
Told me she was doing all right.
As the hours and days slowly passed
My child held on one breath at a time;
And through it all, a stranger was there
Caring for this precious life of mine.
Then it happened one day, she opened her eyes
And smiled up at me;
What a glorious surprise! I couldn’t believe
Her little face looked so happy.
With her little hand embraced in mine
And tears rolling down my face
I looked beyond the strangers before me
And saw angels in this place.
For the rest of my life, I’ll never forget
The miracle that occurred
My child’s life was restored
Beyond the great white doors
Where strangers were guarding over her.

Hi Bart & Shannon. We are wanting you to know that we are praying for Sophie in Glenpool OK. May the healing hand of our Lord Jesus sweep through Sophie and remove anything that may be hindering her health. In the Name of Jesus Christ.
God bless you all.
Your sweet baby girl Sophie is in my prayers.
I was at Breakforth at your show on Friday, and I can honestly say that I kind of know what you are going through. My daughter was born with a partially collapsed lung, pneumothorax and a mucus plug in her chest and we almost lost her in the first 2 days of her life. It was a very dark time for me but it was your song “Homesick” that got me through it and actually started my walk with Christ. After 3 long weeks in the NICU, she was released and is now a very happy healthy 4 year old little girl. I just wanted to say Thank you for doing what you do and know that through your music you ARE changing lives! And also, I hope that we, as in the people at Breakforth helped you get through that night as you have gotten me through many! God Bless you, your band and family and especially Little Sophie!
Bart and Shannon. I just want you to know that I am keeping Sophie in my prayers. I know in my heart that the good lord will bless you in this time of need.
