Prayers for us all

My good friend (and one of our blanket makers!) is staying at my house this weekend, so I actually have 10 minutes to myself. I sat down and started perusing some of the blogs that I follow of you sweet ladies. I was so surprised, and so very happy to see how many of our families are currently pregnant with their rainbow babies.

Ladies, we need to rally around these girls in prayer. I know from experience how very, very difficult that rainbow pregnancy is. You are PETRIFIED of everything, and you don't even enjoy the pregnancy because you're so scared of losing it.

We need to wrap our arms around these people and send love their way. I know Sherri is having some very serious complications, and other moms are very worried about their pregnancies. If you're pregnant and would like prayer, won't you please post a comment here so we can pray for you and your family? And if you aren't in the place in your grief journey where you CAN read someones story, or pray for them, don't feel guilty. That is perfectly okay. I know for a looooong time after my miscarriage I couldn't see anyone announce their pregnancy, or talk about pregnancies with anyone. It's okay. We all understand.

Please post if you would like prayer. I know I would love prayer for my pregnancy. I've had no complications thus far, but that fear is always at the back of your mind.


  1. I am currently 22 weeks and 3 days pregnant. One week from today I will be where I was when we lost Emily Faith. I have started to feel a bit anxious to get though this next 7 days. And then get to 24 weeks, then every day after that. This pregnancy has been very uneventful so far and I just pray that it continues that way. Thank you so much for the prayers. I am praying for all the moms expecting their rainbows right now.

  2. People have been taught for centuries to use prayer to reach God with their petitions. What people might not understand is the "incredible" power that prayer has to solve many of their day to day problems. They say that 'practice makes perfect.' Well, in praying there is no difference. The more that you pray on a regular basis, the clearer you will be in the direction you wish to take with your life, and the needs you desire to have fulfilled. I will show you how prayer has worked for me with factual events, and in different locations around the world.
