Week 25 Prayer Requests

We continue to praise God for the encouragement and prayer we have received from so many friends and family and people we don't even know.

Our prayer requests continue to be the same as in weeks past.  Please also add that we would be able to get restful sleep, especially for Summer. The stress of the unknown and the possibilities of the future weigh heavily. This is a difficult road that Summer is on.  As a man I can barely have the faintest clue of what she is going through. Although I mourn greatly for the loss which we know is coming, she is the one that must carry this child, experiencing all the pains of pregnancy and childbirth, all along knowing that the end result will not be the exhilarating and joy-filled experience of holding a healthy baby in your arms and taking the baby home. She will not get to savor the times of nurturing this infant into toddlerhood and beyond.

We know that God has prepared us for this moment in time, but it is still painful and difficult. Please pray for peace, sleep, love, strength, endurance, perseverance, patience in our marriage and with our children, and patience with others. And that above all God would be glorified in our interactions with each other and with others and in our interaction with the trial that is now ours to endure.
