Please lift Tricia up in prayer!

Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Nate, Tricia and Gwyneth are in need of your prayers today and in the days to come. Tricia has been recovering from a double lung transplant performed in April, mere months after giving birth to their beautiful daughter, Gwyneth, born 15 weeks premature. Nate has faithfully been by Tricia and Gwyneth's side every step of the way while blogging their journey.

On June 16th Tricia received test results saying she had Post Transplant Lymphoma
. Over a period of 5 weeks she would undergo rounds of chemo. Today, Nate posted saying that the cancer had not responded well to the chemo and, in short, would need to start the more aggressive treatments. If her body doesn't respond well to these treatments then, well, it's not good.

Please go read his blog, especially the post from today!

Please pray for peace during this time as well as comfort. This is something that I cannot imagine going through. I cannot imagine the emotions they must be feeling, but God does. He is their comfort, their strength, their rock and He is able to heal Tricia if it His will.

Psalm 46:1 "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."

(Please see Nate's blog for more accurate and complete details on the journey they have been on. Please keep praying for them)
