Prayer Request

Over the weekend, a couple that is very dear to my heart suffered a miscarriage.  I know that they would appreciate your prayers as they prepare themselves for the emotional D & C procedure this morning. 

I have often struggled with wondering why God chooses to give children to unwed mothers and parents who don’t take the responsibility seriously while other couples who pray desperately and truly want to raise a child in the Lord struggle to conceive and/or miscarry.  There is an easy answer to this question, but it’s not easy to understand and accept. 

God is good.  He is sovereign and in control of all nature.  He knit that tiny baby together in the womb (see Psalm 139:13) and one day the baby’s parents will rejoice to meet their child in heaven (see 2 Samuel 12:23). 

I pray for comfort and peace in this sweet couple’s hearts as they mourn this tremendous loss.
