I Am Asking You To Pray

My cell phone was in my purse under the table while we were out to dinner last night for Nathan's birthday.  I hadn't heard the text alert, and it wasn't until I got home and looked at my phone that I saw a text from Robyn.  It had been an hour since she had sent me a text letting me know they were headed to the hospital.  She was bleeding badly.  Remember when I wrote here about her surprise news on her 39th birthday?  She's now 10 weeks pregnant.

I frantically replied to her text and when I didn't hear back in about 5 minutes I texted her mom.  Just moments later her mom replied.  They were doing an ultrasound, so for the next 30 minutes I looked at my phone every 2 mintues to make sure I hadn't missed a call or a text ... and I prayed constantly.  That 30 minutes seemed like 30 hours.

The next text I got was, "Have you talked to mom?"

My heart sank.  If everything was okay she would have said so.  Instead she wanted to know if her mom had told me the news.  I sat for the next 5 minutes holding my breath with my eyes deadlocked to my phone.

She has a placenta hemorrhage between the placenta and the uterine wall.  It could break away and she would miscarry.  It could decrease and go away, and she would carry to term.  Only time will tell.

This we do know.  God is sovereign.  This did not take Him by surprise.  He already has a perfect plan for Robyn and her baby.  He is our Healer.  He is our Rock, our Comforter and our Source of Strength.  Although we are fearful, we trust in Him.

I am asking you to pray for Robyn and Randy.  I am asking you to pray specifically for healing.  I ask you to pray that the Lord would make His presence made so strongly to Robyn and Randy right now ... that they know He is right there holding them tightly.  I am asking you to pray He calms their fears ... that He gives them that peace that passes all understanding.  Please pray Robyn is able to rest.  She has a 4 year old and an almost 3 year old.  I am so grateful she is with her her parents right now.  Not only can they help with the boys, but she just needs to be near them.

She will be following up with her ob at home on Monday.  It's going to be a long weekend.  I am praying that when she sees her doctor on Monday, he isn't able to see any evidence of a hemorrhage.  I am asking you to pray the same.
