For my wife
« on: November 17, 2011, 11:04:39 PM »
My wife and I just found out that she is pregnant.  Glory to God for that!

But, my wife is now just really exhausted and frequently nauseous. I do not get to see her much when I come from work as she is already asleep which is rare because she has had much difficulty sleeping through the night.

Prayers for her that she be made well and also for our little one(s).

Lord, please care for her and for this new, precious life.

Congratulations on the good news!

May the Lord keep your wife and unborn child healthy, safe and happy! 

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.
