Is Anybody Out There?

Last week I told about an impromptu prayer time at our home to pray for our neighbor's baby boy.
See: "Circling The Wagons"
This is the E-mail I received from his mommy on Friday...

We believe in miracles! We went in to have a 3D reconstruction CT scan today for purposes of determining exactly where and how much bone would be removed and the doctor informed us that much to his surprise, today he did not find craniosynostosis. While a clinical examination and preliminary tests suggested clear evidence of such a condition and the doctors had already begun the process of preparing Rawls and us for surgery, the doctor did not find there to be a need for surgery today. It is truly a beautiful day! We are going to go forward with at least one second opinion next week just to be absolutely sure. We are, however, relieved by the news and first and foremost must thank God for answering all of our prayers. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to each and everyone of you for all of your words of support and first and foremost for your prayers. The Lord has answered all of them. There is no question in our minds that this is a miracle! The doctors will continue to track his head shape and growth over this next year but at this time there is no need for surgery.

As soon as I read this I dashed across the street in my apron and the baby's grandmother and I shared our tears of joy.
Why do we try to go it alone when our God is a good God if we just call out to Him?

Deuteronomy 4:29 (New American Standard Bible)
29"But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.
