This prayer page is a place of sincere, deep, and meditative prayer for babies worldwide. Families with premature, ill, or very sick babies are invited to send their prayer needs and a picture, if possible, of the baby to be placed on this page. Women contemplating having an abortion vs. choosing life for their baby are asked to share their difficulties in making that decision. Any woman or family member experiencing a crisis or high-risk pregnancy is invited to share their prayer needs. This is a place of prayer not counsel. All that is needed to receive our prayers is to tell us what you are going through.
This page is a prayer network of churches, Christian organizations, prayer sites, prayer groups, and loving individuals walking in Christ’s light established to pray fervently. We will PRAY LIKE HANNAH DID, for each and every baby, mother, or family member that is added to this page. The people who create this network know how powerful prayer is and that it works. We invite you to pray with us. Prayer changes situations. Prayer changes lives. Through prayer miracles happen.
We do not know God’s plan and accept however He answers our prayers, but we do believe He answers us just as He answered Hannah. She was told she would never have a child, but she did not accept that. She prayed for and was given a son who she named Samuel.

"thank u for helping those mothers didnt know about u when we were there, sometimes when we have days like today. I wish i was still there with all the nurses so when he crashed all i had to be was the worried mom but now we are at home and I have to be mom and nurse to Cody. He decided to crash on us this morning so we had to bag him at least 10 min to even get color back to him. It is not an easy thing to do when it your baby's life in your hands. Please pray for him, we had to stay most of the day back on his vent to let his lungs rest. We see tomorrow where to go when I call dr with report how the evening and night went."
Please pray for this family as they face a very difficult road with their little Cody.

A little information for our prayer partners: The ductus arteriosus is a normal fetal blood vessel that closes soon after birth. In a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) the vessel does not close and remains "patent" resulting in irregular transmission of blood between two of the most important arteries close to the heart, the aorta and the pulmonary artery. PDA is common in neonates with persistent respiratory problems such as hypoxia, and has a high occurrence in premature children. In hypoxic newborns, too little oxygen reaches the lungs to produce sufficient levels of bradykinin and subsequent closing of the DA. Premature children are more likely to be hypoxic and thus have PDA because of their underdeveloped heart and lungs. An An ASD is an atrial septal defect, which is a hole in the wall that connects the two upper chambers of the heart. An ASD is caused by incomplete development of the heart.

Little Maggie needs our prayers. She was born prematurely with health issues and has had good days and bad days since birth as usual with the NICU roller coaster. Yesterday was not a good day. Her doctors are concerned her liver is failing and she has been requiring more oxygen in the past two days. Her liver is a list of many other organs that are not functioning properly. Please pray for Maggie and pray for her parents as they face this extremely difficult battle.
Her father's beautiful prayer:
"Just a quick update: Aara is critically ill, has been since Monday. She has been requiring higher vent support and oxygen and her lungs collapsed yesterday and today. Today her O2 went down to 83 and her saturations are much better. She is on antibiotics, and a slew of medications for hypertension, etc. She is still eating, and voiding well. Please take a quick moment to pray for her recovery and her homecoming."

So I just woke up...in a hospital bed! Happy mothers day wkd-I had a seizure and mild heart attack and my mom found me passed out-I will be here for awhile, I have been diagnosed with eclampsia-had my mom not found me when she did I wouldn't be here to write this! It' tried to kill mr while pregnant and eclampsia is what sets in afterwards-trying to kill me now. I didnt feel right since having the twins but just didnt bother with it thought 2 pregnancies in one yr just hit me hard. I never stopped bleeding from it either, so they have me going in tomorrow to have the piece of my placenta removed that is causing it all. Really im in shock I cant believe this happened to me! Im ok for now thank god it could have been worse and may get that way. My mom called 911 and she brought my laptop knowing I need love and support-from you guys! (From Sarah Doyle)

UPDATE 4/4-Lilly had her first of many surgeries yesterday. She really needs our prayers. Here is a status update from a friend "Update on Miss Lily. Please continue to keep Lily in your prayers. She had a rough night. Her blood pressure and heart rate keep dropping. She is having problems keeping her airway clear and her sats keep dropping really low. She is not peeing and is starting to swell. They also think one of her lungs collapsed from where they took rib cartilage out to do the reconstruction"

A mother’s love is something
That no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
And of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
And enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
Or take that love away…
It is patient and forgiving
When all others are forsaking.
And it never fails or falters
Even though the heart is breaking…
It believes beyond believing
When the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
Of the rarest, brightest gems…
It is far beyond defining.
It defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
Like the mysteries of Creation…
A many splendored miracle
Man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.

|Kennedi Zahar was born at 24 weeks gestation at 1lb 10oz. She is now 34 weeks old and 5lb 1oz; she is still in the NICU in SC. It is about 1hr and 15min from where I live. I'm so proud of her because she is fighting this fight mostly without my presence, I can only afford to see her 2x a week. So please pray for her continued success and that she will be able to come home soon.|
About her name:
The morning I gave birth to Kennedi I went online looking for names for her, because her dad and I had not decided on a middle name yet we only had Kennedi. I typed in baby girl names and instead of starting under the "A" like usual I started at "Z". There was the name Zahar it meant "small blessing" when I saw that I had to make that her name. Kennedi Zahar, for she is our "Small Blessing"
Thank you for your prayers,
Update: Kennedi has passed her car seat test and will be coming home soon! God is good. I have been in awe of Kennedi's mom this entire time as she has been driving back and forth to the hospital and only getting to spend a few days a week with her little girl. I am so happy she will have her home soon.

Joaquin started having issues with his oxygen and
his heart rate earlier in the day yesterday. His hemoglobin levels
were low so they thought this was the cause of all his issues. He
received a blood transfusion at 1:30 pm and he was still having the
oxygen and HR episodes throughout it. His oxygen levels dropped down
to 40 which is not normal for him at all and his blood oxygen gas was
very elevated so the doctor decided to put him back on the vent and
start him on antibiotics.
Please pray for preemie Joaquin who was born at only 25 weeks. This is his mom's second time in the NICU. He has had his ups and downs but is fighting everyday. Today he developed an infection, so prayers are really needed to pull him through. His mom sent a picture to post along with the prayer request. May God bless him and his family.
When I asked her mom a week ago to send me her prayer request this is what she wanted me to add:
"Oh yes please add us...what a blessing! I would like prayers for Olivia Grace's health, for the Vassar NICU Team, and all the families with premature babies that they have all that they need to get through this hard time..."
"The LORD is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those who are crushed in spirit."
