A Prayer for Peace

Lord, give me patience today. I am just dreading a long day at the hospital with a 6 month old (and possibly a whiny husband)!!

God, I know you have such big plans for this baby girl. I know that you have her ~heart~ in your hands. I also know that that alone should give me peace. But I am only human and it doesn't.
I am so thankful to be going through this a christian, though Lord. I could not imagine not having faith and experiencing all this without Your love and compassion.

Hold my hand as I walk down this road. Hold Presley's heart as she endures this time of healing. Father, heal her like you healed the leopers. God mend her.

Help us to get through this day and make it to the next.
Please carry the nurses and all those that care for these babies. Give them rest.

Lord, help me to realize that this is Your child. That whatever happens Your Name will be glorified.

Thank you, God, for saving our souls. For making us whole again.
I pray you continue to work in our family through this procedure. I pray you keep us calm and relaxed and that Your peace may become ours.

I can't tell you enough how much we love you and your family. I will be joining you at the hospital Wednesday night, as long as you need me there. And again on Thursday during MDO. Can't wait to give you a huge hug, and get that baby girl -- whole at last -- back in my arms. xoxoxxo

Praying for you!!!! I will pray especially for the blood draw, as that was our toughest part of pre-op!

(I'm one of Monica's Ohio friends) I just wanted to let you know that I've been praying for you, your husband & your sweet baby girl since I read Mon's blog post about it. May God hold you in His arms & comfort you in the long hours of uncertainty. Good luck & God's blessings!
