Prayer Request July 21, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Admin, awesomeness, Domestic Church, family, General Catholic, Glory, Grace.
My wife informed me a short while back that she is pregnant. This is a tremendous blessing and a great surprise. Our last child, the boy, just had his 6th birthday.
My wife has had several pregnancies since then but none progressed very far. That sort of stopped about 3 years ago. I know from experience that your prayers are very powerful. Would you, in your charity, pray that it may be God’s will that this child may make it to birth safe and sound? I have a feeling about this pregnancy that it just might be different. It’s probably also our last chance.
I am getting up there in years but I would really like another chance to raise a child up for the glory of God. I pray this is not a selfish request. I pray that His will may be done. But I know it would thrill my wife to have one more baby, and it would me, too (somehow, being older, and raising a number of kids to ages 6-16, makes me appreciate babyhood and child rearing far more than I did, say, 10-15 years ago. Youth is wasted on the young, and all that). Conversely, one more miscarriage would be pretty hard to take, but God be praised either way.
God bless you for your prayers. We’re very early, if you could make this a regular intention, that would be enormously appreciated.
I will pray for each one of you who lets me know in return, by name. Deo Gratias!
