URGENT PRAYER! Baby Alfie's Dad Reports Last Second Breakthrough to Stop the "Execution" of His Son But Prayer Still Desperately Needed

"There are negotiations happening right now and we ask for your urgent prayers that God would show us the way to end this nightmare." -Thomas Evans

(United Kingdom)—[CBN News] Earlier today the nightmare appeared to be coming to a tragic conclusion for the parents of a toddler on life support in the United Kingdom. But now there's been a breakthrough. (Image: Alfie Evans/via CBN News)

The 23-month-old boy, Alfie Evans, has been fighting for his life while suffering an undiagnosed brain disease.

Alfie's parents, Thomas Evans and Kate James, have been caught in a legal battle with Alder Hey Hospital which wants to withdraw life support from Alfie.

Monday morning, Evans took to Facebook again in a series of several posts and LIVE videos where he's seen running around the hospital.

"They're trying to give him a lethal injection like they give them on death row," Evans said during the Facebook LIVE. "He's alive, his eyes are wide open."

He says the drug in question is Fentanyl, an extremely powerful synthetic opioid.

But people from around the world have been stepping in to fight that horrific event that would lead to the end of baby Alfie's life.

Not long after his warning post about the injection, Evans shared a release from Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Angelino Alfano, and Minister of the Interior Marco Minniti, granting Alfie Italian citizenship in an attempt to move him to Italy where his treatment could continue.

The post reads, "According to a note from the Farnesina, according to which in this way the Italian government hopes that being an Italian citizen will allow the child immediate transfer to Italy."

Evans also took to Facebook, writing, "We are thankful that our lawyer Mr. Diamond was able to get the execution temporarily stopped. There are negotiations happening right now and we ask for your urgent prayers that God would show us the way to end this nightmare, in a way that is good for everyone and allows Alfie to go. Thank you for your support and please stay close to us!"

In February, the High Court ruled that whatever was causing Alfie's condition, the damage to the toddler's brain was so severe that it was in his best interest to be taken off life support.

On Friday, the Supreme Court in the UK denied the latest appeal by the parents.

The couple has been hoping to take their son to the Vatican's Bambino Gesu pediatric hospital which agreed to continue Alfie's care, but he had previously been denied that option by UK courts.

Videos from this morning show protests outside the hospital with people chanting "Alfie" repeatedly and many commenters joined online with posts pleading for Alfie's life as Evans made known that today is the day officials will end his life.

Evans then posted a picture of Alfie awake, writing, "This is Alfie now having cuddle time, how can they do this?"

Evans has not stopped the battle, pleading with whomever he could to help save his son's life.

Over the weekend he made a post directly to "Her Majesty in Parliament."

He wrote:

"To Her Majesty in Parliament: We the undersigned humbly petition Your Majesty for protection of life and liberty of your 23-months-old subject Alfie Evans. The judges in Your Majesty's Courts have given orders:

• to kill Alfie on an appointed hour at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool by withdrawing his life support;
• for the day and hour of that killing to be kept secret from the public to avoid any protest or hinderance; and
• for Alfie to be detained in Alder Hey until his death—any attempt to release him to be resisted by force, and punished by imprisonment.
