Prayer Request

Dear friends, I am asking that you join me in prayer tonight and tomorrow as a sweet family that I have come to know is preparing to welcome their third precious baby boy into the world. His name is Rhyder and he has been diagnosed with Trisomy 18. They are scheduled for a C-section at 7am tomorrow morning and are praying for time with their sweet boy... I ask that you pray that the Lord will keep their hearts protected but fully open to the love and experience of their precious child. Please pray for the fabulous doctor (who also delivered Maddox), the staff, nurses, and all assisting in any care for their family. Please pray for their family and friends as they stand beside them, awaiting a miracle, no matter how the day goes.

My heart is very weighted for them right now... for all the anticipation of finally meeting Rhyder, for the joy that they will experience and for God's perfect will to play out in their lives.

Thank you for lifting up other families as they walk this road!

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give you; I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."- John 14:27

On another note, I just moved to town from FL and noticed by your blog that you live not too far away. Our family moved here to work with a church in Pearland. My husabnd is a pastor. Thinking of you =)
