Thousands of Christians on social media are thanking God for the miraculous turnaround of a seven-week-old baby who underwent a heart transplant. And his parents are asking for more prayers as he continues to recover and “fight for his life.”

When Augustus Elliott Joubert, better known on social media as Gus, was placed on a heart transplant list, his parents knew the road ahead would be challenging.

And they called on the faith community to lift them and their son in prayer.

“The road ahead is daunting. God is good, his grace sufficient, and the prayers of His people are fortifying. We begin a season of intense anticipation,” wrote Gus’ father, Mark Joubert, on X.

The first set of many prayers was answered 11 days later when a heart came through for the baby.

“My son is currently in surgery. He went in around 1 pm. Old heart is out, new heart is going in. We only spent 11 days on a transplant list. Thank God for the family that chose to donate. It’s been a long day. We probably won’t see him until 8 pm,” Joubert wrote on January 16. “The Lord is our refuge.”

But the answer to prayer was overshadowed by news that Gus’ new heart would not beat.

“He will transition to ECMO (heart bypass machine) for a couple days in hopes that it begins to beat. Otherwise, he will pass away. Please pray for us all,” Joubert requested on X.

Thousands of believers began to pray for the infant as time counted down and life seemed less and less viable.

Two days later, Joubert and his wife heard a faint heartbeat from their son. A sign of hope that beckoned them to put their faith deeper in a God who answers prayers.

They specifically requested prayer for a functioning heart and that he would transition smoothly off the heart bypass machine.
