Christian leader and Bethel  Music CEO Joel Taylor says he and his wife are seeing an improvement with their two-year-old son Jaxon.

NEW UPDATE! 'God Be Our Strength': Bethel Worship Leader Reports His 2 Little Ones Now Hospitalized with E Coli

According to a website set up on the family’s behalf, the Taylor’s 2- year-old son, Jaxon, has been hospitalized for ten days. He was admitted for dehydration but was later flown to a separate facility after doctors were unable to administer an IV.

After a blood transfusion, Jaxon seemed to be on the mend, but then started to go downhill, and was moved to the Intensive Care Unit.

Members of the Bethel Church held a prayer vigil on Jaxon’s behalf. 

 

Pray for Jaxon. Here are more details from his family. #Repost @joeltaylor Last night our church held a vigil for Jaxon. When we’ve run out of words and tears, you’ve all been our strength. Unfortunately, last night he took another turn for the worse. I won’t get into the traumatic details, but I will declare that “vengeance is mine says the Lord” and this disease will be conquered! Here is what to pray for: - Pray that the leak in his gut is healed - Pray that he stops vomiting blood - Pray that he starts urinating - Pray that his brain activity returns to normal and that there is no damage - Pray that his respiratory system is restored and the fluid leaves his lungs - Pray that his catheter and central line stay in his veins with no infections - Pray that his kidneys are healed and restored - Pray that the intense pain stops so he can rest - Pray that Janie and I get some rest. It’s been 10 days and there hasn’t been a day of night without major problems or setbacks. We’ve hardly slept. Thank you Global church for your prayers and support. You’ve been our lifeline more than you can imagine. You’ve held our arms up when we have no more strength.-#healjax #miracleforjaxon

Fellow believers are rallying around the family to pray and battle on little Jaxon’s behalf.

Taylor believes all the prayer and worship are working but he says more is needed to completly heal Jaxon.

"God is a healing God! Keep the praying...he still needs his kidneys healed, lungs restored, and he needs to pee. Pee Jaxon..in the name of Jesus," Taylor also posted.

Friends of the family have also set up a Gofundme page to cover the mounting medical bills.

 

Creating an atmosphere of worship is creating an atmosphere for God’s presence and creating an atmosphere for God’s presence is creating an atmosphere for miracles. Our good friends @seanfeucht and @kfeucht visited today and we pulled down heaven with soft praises. During that time we saw Jaxon’s tummy swelling go down, his blood count increase, two machines were removed, and the seizure monitoring machine removed from his head and from the room. The light came back in his eyes today and he said “dada”! We’re through the major complications and now we just need God to finish the miracle. Jax now needs to be healed for what got him here in the first place. We still need his kidneys healed, his lungs to improve, food to stay down, and he needs to pee. Pee Jaxon, pee! Keep praying family, this miracle is because of your prayers! #HealJax #prayforjaxon
