Please pray

My dear friend Michelle just found out her 19wk baby has died in her womb and my heart is breaking for her. Please pray for her and her family that they will be comforted in this very sad time in their lives.

Blessing After a Miscarriage
For those who trust in God,
in the pain and sorrow there is consolation,
in the face of despair there is hope,
in the midst of death there is life....
as we mourn the death of your child
we place ourselves in the hands of God
and ask for strength, for healing and for love.
—From "Blessing of a Couple After a Miscarriage,"Book of Blessings (The Liturgical Press

Michelle

In the event that you read the comments under Mel's posting, I wanted you to know that we're praying for you and for family.

We're so sorry to hear of your loss, and pray that you are able to make it through this time of sorrow.

Michelle phoned me this morning to let me know that she had a baby boy and they named him Xavier Raphael. She said he was so tiny, but already perfectly formed. He died of a condition called Cystic Hydroma, and couldn't have survived outside of her womb. They are having a funeral on Monday morning. Lets keep praying for her.

Oh how sad!
Prayers for this family.
I know God doesn't make mistakes, but HIS ways are so mysterious at times like this.
