A close friend is expecting her sixth child. She recently had an ultrasound that revealed a heart defect. Right now, the doctor doesn’t know whether the child will survive birth but is certain he or she will need surgery immediately upon birth in order to survive afterward.
Our Father, Who art in heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
