Do You Pray?

I have a blog friend that I truly love. Her name is Unknown Mami. She is funny and serious, ridiculous and profound, honest and kind and real. Her blog is one of my favorites because she is one of my favorite people. Mami has reached out to me in friendship through email at times when I really needed a friend. Now, it's my turn to reach out for her.

Mami is in her 17th week of pregnancy with her second little baby. She received some very bad news today. It appears her baby has no kidneys. I am so angry and scared and not wanting to believe this is happening. But I am also not ready to believe it.

Here is what I do believe. I believe that God is bigger than anything that comes our way. I believe He can heal our bodies and our hearts. I believe prayer works. I don't know what you believe but I am asking for everyone that reads this to please pray. I don't care what you believe or what faith you are or aren't. I believe God hears our prayers even when we have no faith. So, will you please pray for my friend. Pray for a miracle. Pray for comfort and courage for the days ahead. Please....just pray.

Oh, one last thing. If you know Mami or you don't, please stop by and let her know you care. We are all in this life together and we really do need one another. Thanks guys.

I do know Mami and was stunned when I read her post about her baby. Hubby and I are hanging on and waiting for her doctor visit next week. This post and your caring heart are what being a blogger is about :: Sharing and caring.

This is tragic fro Mami. Love her and will keep her in my thoughts. Not a prayer kinda guy.

Thank you so much for this, my friend. I am crushed and knowing that people are sending positive thoughts out into the Universe helps. I am afraid to hope, but more than anything I want a miracle. I want them to be wrong.
