Immediate prayer

Kenzie's contractions have picked up quite a bit from yesterday and she is asking for everyone to be praying that they completely stop. The medicine is not doing it's job anymore. Please be on your knees right now for this family.

Yet he did not waver thru unbelief regarding the promise of God but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised. Romans 4:20

Kenzie & Dusty are praying this verse for them right now and have asked that everyone would as well.

Kenzie,

Thank you so much for the text messages. Every time I get one Tanner says "Is that Mrs. Kenzie? Is baby Faith okay?" We are all here praying for you - you can count on that! I just called Kim and we talked for about an hour. I didn't know if she had talked to you or not. Just know we're here for you always.

I love you, Yvette

I've never commented before (although I've been reading for quite some time now). I just wanted you to know I prayed, on my knees. And will continue to do so. We serve an awesome and mighty God.
Where ever we go, we go not alone. For God has already been there and He is faithful.

Kenzie,

I have been keeping up with you and want you to know that I am praying for you and Faith and will pray that God will cause your contractions to stop. And, if He chooses not to have them stop, I pray that God will hold you as close as ever as He guides you through this journey.

Lots of love and hugs and support,

"MckMama"

Oh, and I posted about you on my blog in the hopes of getting even more prayer warriors beseeching God on your behalf!!

Oh, you precious friend of my heart... I am ON MY FACE for you and your sweet girl. I have been crying out to God to work in ways we cannot imagine, to redeem you, to let this cup pass from you. I am praying for precious Faith to be strong and to be filled with a fighting spirit. I am praying for her to be born, strong and ready to stay with her mommy for a long, long, long time, in God's perfect time.

I love you and anything I can do or say or give is yours.

I miss you so!

Praying for your family...

Almighty God, this precious family has been through so much in the last year and you know the amazing condition of their hearts. Please, Father God, protect Baby Faith, keeping her safely in her mother's womb until she can live on this earth safely. Please allow them the joy of welcoming their third child whole and healthy. Please touch Kenzie's body with your Great Physician's hand and calm her womb, protecting Baby Faith, and at the same time, protecting this precious family's heart.

Amen

Just found your blog through others...I will be praying for you all today and the health of your baby. My son was born at 30 weeks, two years ago. It is an emotional roller coaster! But God was holding us in his hands the whole way, protecting us and giving us strength and I believe he will do that for you. I, too, hope and pray that baby Faith lives on earth with you for a long long time!

Hi Kenzie-
I wanted to let you know that Thursday night, after I read the post, I asked God to lead me in a specific prayer for you. I felt Him press upon me that I was to pray that you would believe Him for the promises He gave you. How awesome He is that this is the very prayer and verse He has given your family! I'm believing Him for this. He is faithful and awesome.

Prayers of love,
Andrea

Dear Sweet Stanfield Family,

I linked to your blog through a friend's several months back, and I have continued to read your inspirational story. Praying that the contractions will cease, you will be able to go home soon and carry this precious gift of life for several more weeks. Thank you for sharing your story with us - your relationship with our Lord has been so uplifting and so inspiring! I have learned so much through you!

Your sister in Christ,
Melissa Flores
Hey Stanfields, just a friend of a friend, but my heart is with you all. Praying Psalm 147:13 over you:
"For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your children within you."

Dear Stanfield family - I found your blog though Poppy Joy's back in early January and have been following your journey and many of the other sweet 'girls' that have made the painful T-18 journey with you. You are all so precious and I pray for you guys often.

I'm on my knees now, praying that God will stop those contractions completely - and continue to do so for at least another 11 or so weeks! I'm praying for baby Faith and her health - and for the doctors taking care of both of you.

You've got a lot of people praying for your sweet little girl!

Blessings!

Coming from Nate's blog to say that our family has you close in our prayers. I had pre-term labour with both my babies and know how stressful and difficult this time is for you all.
We are praying and hoping,

I just found your blog from MckMama!! Your family, and the doctors taking care of your family, are in my prayers. As soon as I came to your blog, I saw that your header has Jeremiah 29:11. My header had the same verse. I LOVE it. It's one of my favorite Bible verses. I'll check back regularly for updates on Kenzie and Faith!! God is in control, and He's a mighty miracle worker!

First time poster. Hang in there! Prayers are coming your way.

Hopefully I can encourage you a bit with my story. I was 27 weeks with triplets and on mag. It wasn't working so well for me and my third day on it my contractions increased to every three minutes. It was a Friday and my doctor left some instructions for delivery when he went home that day. Nobody expected me to stay pregnant through the weekend. But God worked a miracle for us because for no good reason at all, my contractions slowed down that evening and I was able to hold on another 7 weeks.

Praying for you that the mag will start working!

You are in my heart and I will keep holding you before the Lord.

I'm praying for baby Faith, Kenzie and your family. My sister went into pre-term labor nearly 4 weeks ago (also at 26 weeks). I pray that our Great Physician would direct the doctors and nurses and allow baby Faith more time to grow big and strong before she enters the world. I pray that He would give strength to Kenzie as the medicine is so hard on your body. May you be upheld during this difficult time and may He give you the strength to continue trust Him.

Just found your blog moments ago.
Praying for God to do more than we can ask or imagine! God does have the power to do what He has promised, and all His promises are 'yes' in Christ.

"For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God." 2 Cor.1:20

Prayerfully,
Joy

I don't know you, but I feel like I do after reading your blog and the comments you have sent to my niece Karen Zuckero. Your faith is amazing and I thank God for the many people you have touched through your blog. I pray for you and for your baby's health, for your family, and your continued strength and faith in God. Thank you for being such a faithful witness to all who come in contact with you and your family story.
God Bless.

God Bless you. I am praying for a positive outcome and a peace that surpasses all understanding.

May Kenzie and Faith be held in God's hands in a special way - and may the rest of the family be filled with grace and peace as well.
