Please Pray for April Rose
You can visit mom's blog here.
I have a hard time hearing of anyone dying, or struggling with a serious disease. But there is something about children that really pulls at the heart strings. This little girl, April Rose is not yet born. The doctor says she is a sick little girl that will not make it. Her heart rate is down to 80. We all know this is not good.
But you know, the awe inspiring part that goes with this is that the parents are waiting on the Lord to decide what to do. Mom said that doctors wanted to induce here 7 weeks ago, that April would not make it. 7 weeks later, April is still fighting. Mom and dad are believing in the Lord, praying, and waiting upon Him. The doctor is wanting to take April now and says it is dire for them to do so.
Personally, I can understand where they are coming from. For by His time, by His plans, what is to happen will happen. God had it all planned out a long time ago. No matter what happens, if she is meant to live, she will. If she is meant to go home before her parents get to know her, she will. They will meet here later on.
So please be praying for April Rose and her parents for strength to continue, for their faith to remain strong, for April to make it through this pregnancy alive and well if the Father so chooses. Pray for discernment as well that the parents will hear loud and clear the voice of God as to what He wants them to do. Thank You and God Bless.
