Like a Prayer

When I was pregnant with Bean I was attending my final semester at DePaul.  One of my classes involved volunteering time with an organization with a team of classmates.  Throughout the duration of our class I shared with my teammates that we had problems getting pregnant and were nearing the end of our journey.  We were attempting one last in-vitro cycle with a local physician and if it didn’t work we would be traveling to Colorado for our final cycle before hanging up our IVF needles.  A few weeks after I found out I was indeed pregnant and progressing “normally”, Jim told me that his prayer group had been praying for me.  I was blown away.  Basically I was a stranger and he had thought our quest for pregnancy was worth praying for.  I was honored.  I felt as though God answered my prayers.  And if there were a few more people praying for me well, we could use all the help we could get.

A week ago a local church youth group held a door-to-door food drive in our community.  While gathering a few canned goods for their cause, one of the girls asked if there was anyone we would like them to pray for.  My husband could not think of anyone…and neither could I.  I thought to myself, how LAME that we can’t think of one person to pray for.  Then I remembered friends of our were in the midst of an IVF cycle so we asked them to pray for them.  Our friends found out this past Monday that they are indeed pregnant.

So what is the power of prayer?  I’m not sure I know for sure but I figure it can’t hurt a cause, right?  So please, please, please if you are visiting this site as a regular reader (do I actually have those aside from family??) or come across this post or blog by accident say a prayer for Baby James.  He is a small boy adopted from South Korea who has had more than his share of fights to face in his short life.  It can’t hurt for us to open our hearts for this little man who seems braver than his age would allow and is fighting the good fight.

Thanks to Third Mom’s post which brought this blog to my attention.  I’m going to leave this post up for several days in hopes that many may visit and say a prayer for him.
