Skip to comments.Prayer Request for my unborn baby [update at #198]
Posted on 05/16/2007 8:52:46 PM PDT by inflorida
I have been a freerepublic member for a long time and usually lurk but tonight I find myself in need of your prayers for my unborn son.
During a routine ultrasound at 20 weeks gestation, it appears my little boy's stomach is on his right side rather than his left. The doctor could not give us any more information and is having us see a doctor at the hospital where they have more high tech equipment.
Please pray for this little baby, that all will be well. I have no doubt in the power of prayer. Thank you
I’m off to the Abbey this morning...will pray for your little son.
Amen. Delighted and privileged to pray with and for you.
Thank you for sharing your testimony.
“O Sovereign Lord Jesus Christ our God, the Source of life and immortality, we thank Thee, for in the marriage of Thy servany Thou has blest her to be a recipient of Thy blessing and gift; for Thou, O Master, didst say: be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth. We thank Thee and pray: Bless the fruit of her body that was given to her by Thee; favor it and animate it by Thy Holy Spirit, and let it grow a healthy and pure body, with well formed limbs. Sanctify its body, mind, heart, and vitals, and grant this infant that is to be born an intelligent soul; establish him in the fear of Thee.
A faithful angel, a guardian of soul and body, do thou vouchsafe him. Protect, keep, strengthen, and shelter the child in my womb until the hour of his birth. But conceal him not in his mother’s womb; Thou gavest him life and health.
O Lord Jesus Christ, into Thine almighty and paternal hands do she entrusts her child. Place him upon the right hand of Thy grace, and through Thy Holy Spirit sanctify him and renew him unto life everlasting, that he may be a communicant of Thy Heavenly Kingdom. Amen.
O All-Merciful Christ our God, look down and protect Thy handmaiden, from frear and from evil spirits that seek to destroy the work of Thy hands. And when her hour and time is come, deliver her by Thy grace. Look with compassionate eye and deliver Thy handmaiden from pain. Lighten her infirmity in the time of her travail and grant her fortitude and strength for birth giving, and hasten it by Thine almighty help. For this is Thy glorious work, the power of Thine Omnipotence, the work of Thy grace and tender-heartedness. Amen.”
Prayers up. Please keep us informed,
Prayers up from the Buckeye State. May God Bless and Protect both of you.
That being said, may God's peace be with you and the child this day
You bet. Serious prayers.
Prayers up for your baby and your family.
My prayers are up for you, your baby and your whole family.
Praying for all of you.
I’m praying for you both.
May our Lord grant that all will be well with you and your precious unborn son, in the name of Jesus, amen.
Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Prayers for you, your son and husband.
Prayers for the tiny one. Let’s pray the ultra sound is wrong, or that the condition will be benign.
Prayers for you and your baby. Please keep us posted.
I am definitely praying but I would not for one minute accept that the baby has a problem. Just this week someone was telling me that the doctors had warned them about an impending deformity in their baby and lo and behold, the child was absolutely 100% normal. I think they’re wrong more times than they’re right.
God Bless you and your baby.
O LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me.
Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, thou understandest my thought afar off.
Thou compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether.
Thou hast beset me behind and before, and laid thine hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.
If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.
For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
You have it!
God bless you and your medical caregivers. May his love comfort and sustain you. Please keep us updated.
Prayers for health, peace and courage.
I most certainly will keep your little guy in my prayers.
I pray that our Heavenly Father will guide the physicians who are caring for your little one so that all will be well.
I also pray that our Heavenly Father will fill you will peace and thus reduce any anxieties you may have about this medical situation.
Prayers and blessings,
Been there! Not that defect, but I know where your heart is. Our prayers (and the prayers from that child...now 24 and healthy as can be!) are with you.
His eye is on the sparrow!

Prayers for you and your precious little son.
And as you pray, praise Him, for He is sovereign!
Prayers for your baby, and know God is ever present!
Almost from the first of my daughter's first pregnancy, the doctors didn't think she would go full term....they thought she would miscarry...but she proved them wrong.
But at 28 weeks, she developed pre-eclampsia, (high blood pressure & swelling)
..Our beautiful granddaughter was born at 28 weeks (but smaller in size than 28 weeks)--(she was 2-1/2 pounds!....
..She is now 2 & 1/2 yrs old, bright, healthy, all caught up in size and a delight to us all!!!!
All along the way, during that pregnancy, her mom, dad, and my husband & I (grandparents) had to keep trusting in His sovereignty
...and even when our faith grew small, God honored that small faith.
When I wanted to despair, I would sing praise songs instead...
..On the day they took her in emergency ceasarian, we did not know what the outcome would be,
...but my husband, I and our pastor's wife stayed in the waiting room praying without ceasing, singing hymns and praising God while tears ran down our cheeks...
..The tears dried even as we sang...
..and shortly after, our beautiful Emily was born....small but healthy.
God be praised.
Prayers up to you and your baby. God bless you both.
Saying a prayer for you in Tennessee.
You are your baby and family are in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings!
Prayers sent. Stay strong in faith and let us know how it goes...
After our last trauma with anomolus but benign results from ultrasound, I am less and less convinced that it has any therapeautic value. If your child's condition is detrimental, what can they do, offend you with abortion advice? If your child's condition is benign then you have suffered for absolutely no reason. If the Lord blesses us with a next time (we have eight) then I will advise my wife to reject the ultrasound treat.
May God bless you and your child! We'll pray for you!
13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother's womb.
14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
