Prayers for Susannah Joy Maxwell
Nathan and Melanie received news that their baby had some problems around Christmas time. Melanie has struggled with premature labor for the last month as the baby's complications were causing her to go into labor. She has thankfully been able to carry the baby for a few critical extra weeks but now that the baby has been born there are some serious problems which are life threatening. Here is the latest update from their website:
"Susannah Joy made it past the twenty four hour mark. She is still in very critical condition and unresponsive. She needs for her blood pressure to stabilize. There are other concerns the doctors have, but if the blood pressure isn’t where it needs to be, the other issues don’t matter. We are grateful for all the prayer support and encouragement. We serve a God Who works miracles for those who trust Him. We are seeking to fully trust and look to Him.
Please pray for baby Susannah Joy. Please pray for her weary and frightened parents, Melanie and Nathan Maxwell. And, please pray for Susannah's grandparents, Steve and Teri Maxwell who must be struggling as they watch their children face this difficult trial as well as their own grief over the condition of their dear first grandchild. I know this family would covet your prayers!
"The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble. And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee." Psalm 9:9-10
