Friend miscarried
« on: April 28, 2010, 08:31:25 PM »
My friend is the proud father of four.  However, though wishing to add to his blessings, his wife recently miscarried at 15 1/2 weeks. 

Memory eternal to the lost child.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord, have mercy and grant healing!

They have my sympathy as well.  It's a heartbreaking experience.
