It's easy to think some things are not important enough to even type up. That it's too small but God knows every bird that falls to the ground and knows how many hairs are on our head! i.e., nothing is too insignificant for His attention.
Thank you all for the opportunity to talk to the Maker and bring Him these requests.
Love to all...
I'm beginning to understand the Buddhist concept that "life is suffering." Also happy to see all those who agree to add prayers.
For those having trouble conceiving or bringing a child to term, get to know a modern-day saint, St. Gianna Molla. The miracle attributed to her prayers is as follows:
"The miracle recognized by the Catholic Church to canonize Gianna Molla involved a mother, Elizabeth Comparini, who was 16 weeks pregnant in 2003 and sustained a tear in her placenta that drained her womb of all amniotic fluid. Comparini was told by her doctors the baby's chance of survival was "nil." Comparini said she prayed to Gianna Molla asking for her intercession, and was able to deliver a healthy baby despite the lack of amniotic fluid."
I personally have met at least a dozen parents of "Gianna Babies" as part of my work at guadalupeshrine.org.
Like Lake Wobegon, but without the lake.
