Prayers Needed

Sadness was waiting for me this morning in my email inbox about the new mother I asked y'all to pray for earlier this week. Emily went home to the Lord. Her husband and newborn son are walking a path I can't even begin to conceive of journeying.

I don't know her or her family but found this news so heartbreaking. Heartbreaking for those left on earth ... Emily is in the presence of our Savior. Her heavenly joy is their earthly sorrow.

Please take time to lift this sweet family up to Jesus. Pray for their peace and acceptance of God's plan for their family. May they find strength and comfort in Him, and through his Mother. Pray for Emily's husband in his suffering, and for her newborn son who will never feel the embrace of his earthly mother's arms.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.
