For all Parents of Preemies and Special Needs Children
May God give you faith, strength and hope.

This prayer circle is for all parents of infants who were born prematurely or with special needs, permanant or not. This circle is to pray for hope, faith, strength and preserverence. I am a mother of twin boys who were born at 28 weeks.

I pray that you will find faith, hope, strength, and understanding. That you will understand that God through Jesus Christ will watch over your child/children. That he will give you strength when you think you can't go one more day, hour, or minute. That you will find through faith that there is hope for the future. Someone once told me that God picks special people to be the parents of preemies and special needs children, because he knows they will take care of them. May a thousand angels surround and protect your precious child/children now and forever. In the name of Jesus Christ, in which all things are possible.

Hi, my name is Crystal and my son, Antonio has Down Syndrome. He's 3 1/2 years old and he's my angel sent from God. He's a healthy little boy with special needs! He's my pride and joy! The main concern I have with him right now is he's not talking yet. I just increased his speech therapy to 3 times a week. I am asking for prayer for this.

Father God, I come to Your throne on bended knee. I humbly ask that You help Your sweet precious son, Antonio, that You have so graciously given me. I thank You for him, Lord and the wonder things that he's taught me. Lord, I thank You for his health and I ask that You continue to watch over him. I specifically ask that You, Father, instill a desire to learn and try to articulate his words so that he can speak. I thank You for hearing my prayers, Lord. I love You, Jesus and it's in Your precious name, I pray. Amen.

Dear Lord, I know that I haven't spoken to you a lot lately and I hope you can forgive me for all the wrong that I do. Please help me to not be so angry, Lord. I've just been spending more time asking "Why?" than enjoying all the good that has come from my blessing, Julian. Lord, he needs you now more than ever. (Julian is 4 months old and has Down's Syndrome, Transient Leukemia, and a heart defect) Please be with Mark and I as we travel to have Julian's heart surgery. Lord, I know that everyone keeps telling me to have faith, but I am having trouble. Please give me your strength so that I can be there for my family during this very risky operation. Please help me to remember that with you all things are possible and to not be pessimistic. In your name I pray, Amen.

Dear friends,

After six years of trying to concieve my husband and I decided to take a vacation to think things over. I had gone through an emotional roller coaster but never lost faith in God. Although sad, depressed, angry, and always asking,"why not me?" I knew God had a plan. While on vacation in London I went into premature labor (according to the doctors I was approx 25 weeks along) and had a beautiful baby girl. After waiting over eight hours to see her we were told by doctors that she would not make it through the night. She was born very premature, with a serious infection, and they had a very hard time getting her stable. My husband and I were numb. Here was the child of our dreams but she was going to die. We had her blessed that day and the priest prayed with us. She made it through the next two weeks and improved greatly. We stood by her side all day, sometimes sleeping at the hospital. At one month she had to go into cardio surgery to close her PDA. Before she was taken into surgery I was allowed to give her a kiss, the first time I touched her since she was born. I cried and I prayed and after the surgery we hoped that it had worked. Several weeks later she was doing better and we were allowed to hold her more. My daughter, Riley, was finally transferred to a hospital back home on 12-3-04. We took a special medical plane home, a 12 hour flight. She was still on oxygen and when they sent her home with us on 12-18-04 I was so scared. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to give her the same level of care that she received in the hospital. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get her off the oxygen. We were able to spend Christmas togethor, at home, a truely wonderful gift from God. Riley is now completely off oxygen, a healthy happy 12 pound baby, and growing! She has no side effects to her being born so premature. Friends, family, and complete strangers came to us in our time of need and prayed for us. I wanted to share my story because I wanted to tell other parents that "yes" God does answer when we pray to him. Although his plan might not be clear to us God when reveal it when the time is right. I made a promise to God the night she was born. I told him that if he allowed her to live I would spend my life teaching her about Him. Please do not lose hope mircles do happen!!!
