Will you please lift up Sherry C., a friend of mine from college, today? She is only 7 days post-partum, having had her first baby girl last week. Yesterday Sherry's sister's family found themselves in some kind of awful crisis with their newborn son and they need lots of prayer. Unbelievably, on the same day, Sherry's best friend's family lost their 3-month-old baby daughter completely unexpectedly. My heart is so heavy for all these families. I cannot wrap my mind around having a traumatic crisis over my newborn, losing my child, or watching my sister and my best friend go through these trials simultaneously (while caring for a 7-day-old baby). The fear, despair, and sadness would be overwhelming. Please pray for God to be near to these precious families dealing with devastation. Thank you so much and may God bless you for bearing the burdens of people you do not know personally.
