Prayers for someone whose blog I read
I don't really know this woman, I just know that she reads my blog occasionally and I read hers occasionally. So while I am happy to hold her and her family and friends in the Light, I won't be contributing anything else.
However, as someone who spent a turn in the intensive care nursery (with a premature baby who turned out just fine and healthy) I am aware that these kind of decisions and tragedies happen every day and are heartwrenching every time.
A Friend of mine wrote an article for Friends Journal a few years ago about bodily positions for prayer. She was questioning whether sitting upright in folding chairs was really conducive to deep prayer. One of her suggestions was that if we want to know how to pray for the world's children, we should adopt the posture of a woman in labor who cries out, "Save my baby!"
My prayers this morning are for all the families who cry for their babies, saved and unsaved.
Note to readers: I will not entertain a discussion of the ethics of life before birth on this blog at this time. Comments that make more than a tangential reference will be deleted, at my sole discretion.
