my prayer warrior

One of my best friends has a circle of friends that support each other with a prayer when needed. Thankfully, although we are continents apart and havent seen each other for 6 years, I am in her circle. When she heard my news she asked her 'prayer warriors' (her phrase) for a special little prayer.

I can't tell you how much support i have had from my friends in recent weeks, and now that includes women that i dont even know. I have had everything sent to me from hugs, uplifting words and poems to links for sources of information and support organisations that may be of help.

I knew that pregnancy could be a somewhat stressful journey, but now i know that i am not alone.

Although I am not being particularly gracious in my prayers just now, i know that ultimately it is God's decision as to whether i get to meet my unborn baby or not. I just hope he cuts me some slack. I also hope he listens to my prayer warrior and her friends and grants me some time.

So to everyone who has sent me thoughts and prayers - thank you.

Hi Akili...I've just popped over from Shimelle's BFS. I'm glad to hear you have your prayer Warriors onside, and hope that you find the strength to cope with what lies ahead.

I'm sorry to hear about your baby and so glad that you have a good circle of friends to pray for you. I'll be praying for you too. BTW, I popped over from BFS to say hi.
