Psalm 139:13-16

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

I am posting a prayer request today for one of my oldest and dearest friends Lauren, her husband Chris, and their precious little one Evan.  Evan has anencephaly and he is going to be induced on August 30.  I am feeling a sense of desperation in my prayers for him and his family.

You can find Lauren's blog here.  Please join with me in prayer that Lauren will have an easy labor, that Evan will be born alive, that they would get to spend a gracious amount of time with him, that their families will get to meet him, and for a miracle for Evan to be healed completely.  I pray for sweet memories, for little anxiety, and for a peace that surpasses all understanding.  I pray that if God chooses not to heal Evan on earth, that he would pass peacefully and that Lauren and Chris would be comforted in knowing that Evan is perfectly healed in Heaven.  I pray that others would continue to be drawn closer to God through Evan's life.


  1. My good friend Libba's little girl, Glory, was born in February with anencephaly. Libba's choice to carry Glory for as long as she could was an amazing love story. I told Libba about your friend when you first posted about them...Libba emailed her - just to say she was "here" and "understood". I will pray for your friends and their little Evan.
