This is an excerpt of my wife’s facebook status update:
Pray for God’s mercy on our little boy. Ultrasound today showed my cervix is thinned down to the stitch to about 10mm (a normal cervix is 40mm or 4cm long). There is a lot of pressure on the amniotic sac which is squeezing into the top of the cervix. Pressure increases as baby grows and my water is in danger of breaking at any time. He must stay put for a MINIMUM of 17 more days (24 weeks) to even have a chance. We need a miracle for our little miracle.
Though words and thoughts fail me at present, the Spirit hears my prayers even when I cannot put voice to them. The one assurance that I had as I was driving home from Nashville, Tenn. today is this: it is the mercy and grace of God that has brought us to this place, and it is that same mercy and grace that will bring us from this place.
As Jen and I embraced, cried, and talked, I told her that I have begun to learn for the first time in my life what it means to cling to something. I am clinging to Jesus. I can do nothing else.
As the Lord brings us to your mind, would you pray for us in this uncertain time?
