Sharing the Need of Prayer

I am enveloped with soberness.  When I got on my blog earlier, my blog list, which displays teasers of the latest posts of the blogs I follow, announced the death of a baby I've been fervently praying for since I learned of his existence. I had shared the prayer request with you, so I thought I should update you. I had called the baby "Sweet Pea", because they weren't sure of his gender. His name is Jacob. He lived for two days. He was born Monday, and passed away Wednesday.  Please pray for his family.  Jacob is their second son. Their first son, Ty, was stillbirth.

Also among my blog roll was the story of Emmanuella and her baby, who is currently fighting for his life. They also need your prayers.

Some pain is unimaginable for me. Seriously,  my ever present imagination, which is vast, tries to grasp what these families are going through, and I just get overwhelmed with a sense of pain so acute my heart flees the imagining. This retreat always propels me into immediate prayer.

I offer these people my heart, as it is already with them, and just hope they know they are being blanketed with prayer.  I know God is with them, as He is with every single person going through similar tragedy right now. I hope they, and anyone hurting, allows Him to give them the comfort He's aching to provide.

"Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4

**Shortly after I published this, a friend contacted me to request prayer. Her uncle has just died unexpectedly, and she asks for prayer for her family, especially her grandmother.

  1. Hi lovely Pamela! I'm glad I've finally visited your blog. I so appreciated our discussion of "Sensitivity" over at my place. (Do you see the Philippine flag on your sidebar? I'm coming from there - thousands of miles away :-))

    I share the happiness of blogging/writing with you. Everyday, I thank the Lord from the bottom of my heart for the gift of writing and the wisdom and strength that come with it (If you've read my profile you would understand).

    Happy 3rd blog anniversary! May the Lord bless you more.

    Rina
