A prayer request....!

A dear friend of mine just called me today to let me know she is having a miscarriage, please pray for her and her family, they have been through so much already this past year! Pray that she will feel God's loving embrace around her, his compassion for her and for healing.....!
I know God works all things for his good purpose, and heals the broken hearted and binds their wounds, I know God is the God of all comfort, His name even means compassionate, I imagine Jesus shedding tears with her, but when we are in the midst of difficulties such as this, it can be but a shadow and a dream we hope for one day -the pain is just so real and so present now, it's hard to hold out for peace and have faith in these truths,  and it's hard to be comforted......please lift her up as the Lord leads.....

Hoping that she will be able to get through this difficult situation. May the peace of Christ Jesus be upon her no matter what! (I know it is easy for me to say, but thats my prayer.)

I have 6 children and 2 years ago we experienced our first miscarriage, our would have been #7 baby. I had known other women who had experienced miscarriages, and to me it was always very sad, but nothing I could empathize with completely. Now that I have experienced the loss I do know the deep pain. There is so much that is experienced through a miscarriage...for me the biggest was the "why?" what happened?, did I do something wrong?. There is so much that happens physically and emotionally in the process...during the first few weeks after, I would find myself in tears for "no reason". The grieving takes time. And the physical healing also takes time...hormones are trying to balance out...and in my case of a D&C I had other issues like controlling bleeding etc. It is very sad and very hard. One thing that helped me through the emotions was journaling and receiving the care of others. Flowers and gift baskets never meant so much...People dont always know what to do or say in tragedy. But just knowing people care can be very meaningful. I still think of my loss from time to time, and believe I will see my little one in heaven. Sometimes I let a balloon go up in the air after a birthday party or something...and it is my little way of remembering the life that now is with my God.

I do pray for your friend. I pray that she and her family will experience the deep comfort of God and hope in Him.
