Praying Specifically...

"Perhaps only when human effort had done its best and failed, would God's power alone be free to work."
-Corrie ten Boom
The Hiding Place

As I mentioned in a previous post, we have had a few people inquire regarding how they can pray specifically. Here are a few of our prayers and/or goals...

1. Pray that we are able to make it at least 28 weeks in order for both babies to have a good chance of survival without permanent injury. After we reach 28 weeks, we will breath a huge sigh of relief and begin praying for our real goal of at least 32 weeks.
2. Pray for the blood flow in Pooh's umbilical artery to at the very least remain where it is, but we really are praying for improvement. This will allow him to grow and develop further before we deliver.
3. Pray for positive results on our non-stress tests and biophysical profiles; with these and no changes in blood flow we will remain pregnant.
6. Pray for our sanity and anxiety, especially Randi's, as we get closer to the prizes at the end of the race.
7. Pray for Tigger, as well, that he continues his great progress throughout pregnancy.
8. Pray for the ability and focus of the OB, neonatalogists, and resuscitation teams during the time of delivery.
9. Pray for the lung maturation of both babies and the ability to have good respiration outside the womb.
9. Pray to protect their brains against injury and brain bleeds that can lead to cerebral palsey and other developmental delays.

Thank you, thank you, and thank you again for everyone's encouragement and faith.
P.S. We are getting close on names...finally.
