Prayer Request

I am so thankful for the prayers all of my family and friends have lifted up for me and our babies throughout this very uncertain and worrisome time. I have felt peace at times that I know was prayed over me and granted by our Majestic Father. I know our babies have been prayed over for safety and growth and there is no doubt God has graciously answered those prayers as well. So, I wanted to ask you guys to lift up a patient that is here on the same floor with me. I don't know a great deal about her, I just know that she is 22 weeks along with her first baby and her membranes are on the verge of rupture. She is very scared and extremely upset right now. They are praying for two more weeks just to make it to "viable" age. My heart is saddened for her, as I know about the worry and fear that can creep over you and consume your spirit when faced with this kind of uncertainty. I wrote her a note last night of our story and gave her many of the awesome scriptures from my scripture wall to hopefully encourage her. In her note, I told her I had an amazing "team" that prays for me and I was going to ask them for their prayers for her as well.

As always, I thank you all so much for the daily prayers you say for our miracle babies. Next week, doctors will do growth scans. James seemed to be behind on growth last time by about 11%. Dr.Gonzalez said if there becomes a 20% difference then it becomes a concern. Please keep praying for safe, growing babies. I love you all!
