If You Believe in Prayer

I was just reading over at Teresa's blog and she linked to a family who really could use all the prayer they can get right now.

Nathan is the husband of beautiful Tricia who has Cystic Fibrosis. She was soon to have a double lung trasplant when they found out she was pregnant. Now they have given birth to a tiny baby girl, Gwyneth Rose. Nathan's faith is amazing and inspiring. Both his girls are in the hospital and he does not know what the future holds for either of them. But God is so amazing and Nathan knows what God can do.

I don't know this family. But their story is very near and dear to me. Their daughter was born at 24 weeks. Our son was born at 24 weeks. Those months in the NICU were not easy. We never knew what each day would hold. But we had the peace God had already given us...the peace the doctors and nurses couldn't understand. I pray they were impacted by our faith. And it's hard to believe it was that long ago God gave us the miracle of a beautiful baby boy who will soon be turning 14!

Those days were hard, and I was healthy and right there beside CJ most days.

Tricia has not yet met her precious little angel. I cannot begin to imagine the emotions Nathan is feeling. But I know that he will be able to handle whatever comes his way because of his incredible faith in God. And I'm praying that Tricia will recover fully and be stronger than ever so she may receive her double lung transplant. I'm praying Gwyneth continues to thrive and grow into a strong and healthy little girl. And I'm praying that this family will soon all be rejoicing together and looking back on these days saying Look what the Lord has done!!!

Please, if you believe in prayer, visit Nathan's blog and pray for this precious family!
