As Faithwire previously reported, James Garner took to Facebook Live earlier this month to ask for prayers for Logan, explaining that the boy experienced a life-threatening brain injury and was battling for his life.
People around America responded by rallying in prayer around Logan, while the family hoped for a miracle.
James Garner’s sister, Joy Garner Whitt, posted a Facebook message before Logan’s death noting that doctors had performed a surgery to remove part of his skull so that his brain clot could drain; Logan’s brain stem was also severely damaged.
“We are asking for a miracle that, not only will Logan survive, but that God will totally heal his brain and there will be absolutely no damage,” Whitt wrote at the time. “Our God is able. Our God can do it. But most of all we are praying that God’s will be done and He gets the glory through it all.”
The family has not yet revealed the cause of Logan’s injuries, but dad Zachary Garner did post a Facebook message before Logan’s death encouraging people to be patient, adding that details will soon be revealed.
“I don’t tell you today for out of respect to the officers looking into this case, I do not want to derail the investigation,” he said. “Just know that I am getting your messages and they do help me keep faith. And thank each one of you for praying for my son.”
James said in a Facebook post that the family has struggled throughout the ordeal, but that God has given them strengh.
“This has been extremely difficult yet the Lord has Given strength upon strength,” he wrote. “Continue to pray for us. Our hearts are broken.”
Please continue to pray for the family.
