Can I Please Ask Your Prayers?

Our family was devastated yesterday by the news that my sister's unborn baby had died.  She was almost 20 weeks along.  We don't know yet whether the baby is a boy or girl.  This is their third loss and they have four beautiful children here on earth.  They are reeling and heartbroken.  

I know so many of you know that raw grief, that same heartbreak.  Would you please pray for Erin and Rick today?  They will be at the hospital and Erin will have to deliver the baby.  It will be a painful, heart wrenching day.  We're grateful they are at a Catholic hospital with a Catholic doctor and will be treated well.  Please pray for the medical staff, for their decisions, and most of all for Erin and Rick and the whole family to be drenched in grace during this time.  She's counting on the prayers of others to get her through this and I promised her I would ask you to pray, too.

Thank you so much, friends.  This means so much to us.
