Cal Owen Hanna

I am doing this blog for a friend of mine who has a very sick baby. We need the prayers of every Christian soldier!

Cal was brought into this world on March 17, 2009. He has been such a huge blessing for his parents, Marcus and Courtney. He is loved by his grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. In October, Cal started having seizures. His parents have spent countless hours at the hospital with Cal trying to pinpoint the problem.

We are believers in Christ and ask you to get on your knees for baby Cal. Prayer changes things! God is the Ultimate Physician and He can heal. We are claiming that God will heal Cal!

This is a blog to keep you updated on Cal's progress. Please leave comments of encouragement for his family to read. I cannot imagine having to live in their shoes right now.


  1. I don't know baby Cal or his parents, but I do know that nobody deserves to go through something like this, and any friend of Katie's is a friend of mine. I am thinking of baby Cal and I'll spread the word. This family is in my thoughts and prayers. We have faith that Cal is going to make a full recovery and that this family will feel God's love during this time.

    just want you to know that we are claiming healing for Cal...God's power is mighty and we believe in it...we love you and your family and please know the prayers will continue...

  3. Marcus, Courtney, & Cal -

    I think about y'all everyday! Courtney, I feel like we were on this pregnancy journey together! It seemed like everywhere I went, there you were... from picking out baby furniture, to picking out invites, to c-sections & NICU adventures, to having precious baby boys only 4 days apart...what an amaizing year! God has blessed us in so many ways, and I know he will continue to bless your family. I can't imagion what y'all are going thru, but I know that God heals and that God answers prayer and y'all have so many people praying for you. If there is anything that we can do or help you, please let me know...we are just right around the corner.
    Our love and prayers are with you,
    Molly, Cyrus & Beckham Richie

  9. Courtney, Marcus...........The bible tells us that where two or more are gathered there He will be also. Look how many people are in this room. We are gathered. God will heal because He is right in this room with us. I love you and will continue to pray angels on little baby Cal everyday. I have prayed angels on my children all their life. I never have to really worry about them. Well.......then there is Michael Gene. lol....just kidding. A little humor there. Love you.

  10. Courtney and Marcus,

    I love you guys and I am praying for God's miraculous healing for Cal. I can't imagine how ya'll are feeling, but I pray that God's comfort and strength will cover you guys like a warm blanket.

    Please know that a lot of people are praying for ya'll, and we are here if you need anything!

  11. Marcus and Courtney,

    Please know how closely God is holding you through this. I can't imagine the range of emotions you're dealing with, but we are praying ever so intently for you and precious Cal. We serve a mighty God and know that he is watching over all three of you very closely.

    With much prayer and love sent your way,
    Mary and Brandon Lehrmann

  12. Marcus and Courtney,

    I promise to pray for Cal every day, that our Savior and Lord will heal his body and that you will be brought comfort while you are going through this time together. I know nothing anyone says will make it feel better but this is such a neat thing your friend has done so you can see all the people praying for you both and Cal. What a precious little boy you have. God is great and can do great things! We love you and are here for you.

  17. I have put Cal on my prayer list and will be praying for him daily. I know how hard it is to trust and have faith when you arn't sure what the future holds, but God is all you can hold onto and cling to in times like this. I am praying that the doctors find out exactly how to help Cal.

    In Him,

  21. Marcus & Courtney,

    Natalie informed us about what is going on. We can't imagine what you are going through right now. But, as parents, we know you are a great strength for Baby Cal. We pray that you continue to find that strength within yourself to be strong for him. We have no doubt you will! It sounds like he is in the best of hands with great parents, good doctors, and great family and friends.

    Much love,
    Sarah & Matt Johnson

  22. Your family has been in our constant thoughts and prayers. We are true believers in the power of prayer!! Know that you and Baby Cal are being uplifted daily. Our hearts are with you!

    Love, Craig and Susan Cheyne

  23. Cal and all of his family are in our heart and prayers. He is a beautiful, handsome baby. His eyes are as large as the moon at night and as brown as the color of a piece of Hershey's chocolate. His lashes are long and curl upward like they are always having a personal conversation with the Lord. His skin is soft and pure like fresh fallen snow. Did I mention how beautiful he is? God has made this special child for us to pray for and love.
    I believe in the power of prayer because I have seen miricales happen. I pray to God that this child be healed.
