Urgent Prayer.

Hey Blogger Friends,

I know a lot of you are big prayer warriors and right now, we are in need of you. My brother and his wife are pregnant with their first child, a little boy due in December. She is 26 weeks and 5 days pregnant right now. They were out of town for the weekend visiting her parents and her water broke.

She is in the hospital right now being monitored, given meds to prevent labor and they are trying to figure out what to do next. For those of you who pray specifically, pray...

* For their baby. His health, his safety, his life.
* For my brother and his wife. They are scared, needless to say. Pray for boosts of encouragement and faith like they've never had before.
* That they will be able to transfer her to her hometown so that she can be in her hospital with her doctor. If she has the baby where she is now, the baby can't leave/transfer to another hospital. They are an hour and a half away from home now.
* Provision. For every situation they are facing right now. This curve ball affects pretty much every aspect of their life right now - with work, school, etc. So please pray for provision.

She will remain in the hospital for the duration of the pregnancy. As of right now, we don't know how long that will be.

Thank you all for your prayers for my family, and especially for my precious nephew.

  6. My twin brother and I were born at 29 weeks. The doctors said that I had died, but God had other plans. You can go on my blog to read more. Needless to say, God is still in the miracle working business!

    I will be praying for peace and strength for the family and wisdom for the doctors.

  9. Best of luck to you and your family. I hope she can make it back home!!! Just think positive even in worse case that she delivers a baby can survive after 24 weeks. It will be a hard road regardless at this point just keep mom positive. Her positive mood will make a difference!

  14. Your family is in my prayers. Have you read the blog of the Daniel family? I am just a lurker of both of your blogs but the wife Brittany was in DC on business when her water broke at 24 weeks (they are from Alabama). They were just able to bring their son home from the hospital. It might be somewhat of a comfort to your family to read what they have been through.

  26. Prayers and blessings being sent to your family right now. I had my wonderful twin boys (Brady and Drew) born at 29 weeks. They were extremely small and fragile, but the power of prayer combined with medicine can do wonderous things and now they are happy, healthy, smart, amazing TWELVE YEAR OLD boys! God is great and can do miraculous things.

  27. Oh sweet auntie, I will keep your family in my heart.

    My nephew was born at 26 weeks. He was only 2lbs and lived in the hospital for 3 months. He truly is a miracle. He is now a healthy athletic 16 year old, an awesome big brother to his 5 younger siblings, and an amazing young man! Those doctors are smart, and I'll pray for guidance for *them*!

  34. We are definitely praying...I can't imagine how they are feeling and what emotions are going through their minds. Was she having any problems or complications before or was it just sudden?

    ReplyDelete
  35. I will be covering them in prayer! I know how they feel! I went into pre-term labor at 23 weeks and was hospitalized- never had I been more scared. But as soon as my brothers and sisters in Christ started covering all of us in prayer a perfect peace washed over us knowing we were in God's hands. I know you and your family will rest in peace that passes all understanding knowing God is control and we will be praying!

  43. Father God, I lift up Whitney's Brother, Sister in law, and baby nephew to you tonight. Lord, I pray that you will protect the health of both mother and child. Keep that little baby inside his mothers womb for as long as possible God so that you may continue to knit together his little body. When he is born, Lord I pray that he would be healthy and strong. I pray that their whole family would be able to rejoice in the life of this baby, and the miracle of life that only you provide. Lord, please comfort this family and help them to turn all their worries and concerns over to you Lord. In Jesus' name, Amen
