Waiting and Praying

Another update from Kenzie...

I can't tell you how much it means to us to hear about all of your prayers and comments that have been posted. Our prayer pager has not stopped buzzing all day and it encourages me to know that God's name is being lifted up for the sake of my baby boy.

After meeting with our doctor this morning we have some new concerns that we would like to ask all of you to pray about. In addition to the Trisomy and spina bifida issues that we are expecting the doctors are now concerned about the premature nature of Maddox's arrival and the complications that this could add. We would like to ask you to specifically pray that Maddox's lungs would be sufficiently developed for his delivery today and that he would be able to breath on his own.

Thank you again for all of your prayers and support and I will post more info as I get it.

Jesus, please protect this family today. Hold Maddox in your hands and deliver him safely into the arms of his mommy and daddy! Cover them with your peace in a way that they have never before experienced. You are able to do exceedingly more than we can ever imagine. Please show yourself to Kenzie, Dusty, Deacon, and Maddox today!

Dear Lord Jesus, please allow Madox to have strong enough lungs to breathe. At least for a few precious hours. This birth is a special time in this families life and to spend just a few moments with their baby boy here on earth would be a pleasure. We know all things are possible through you. Amen

Kenzie,

Hey! We left at 7:00 am this morning and just got home at 2:30 pm. I received an email from Emily and read your 2 posts. We had a special time of prayer for you last night and I have been awake most of the night praying for you. I wanted to call so many times, but knew you needed your rest! We will continue to pray for you throughout the day and I will give your sisters a call to check in on you.

Love you,
Yvette Hostetter

Please Lord allow your will to be done. Please comfort the family as Maddox comes into this world and prayers that Maddox will be able to breathe on his own so his parents can feel his breath on their cheeks.
