Prayer for Caroline:
Dear Lord, I pray for Caroline’s bones that are developing this week so they can produce life-giving blood cells. I ask you for 100% healthy bone marrow and for the correct amount of red and white blood cells and platelets. I pray Caroline is happy, healthy, loving, joyful, wise and beautiful on the inside and out. Help Matt and I to be good parents. Give us many happy times together. In Your name, amen.
“I will sing to the Lord all my life, I will sing praise to my God while I live. May my meditation be pleasing to Him; I will rejoice in the Lord.”
– Psalm 104:33-34
