Please Pray for Charlotte and Cupcake!

by | Sep 1, 2011 | Prayer Request | 16 comments

Charlotte is so good about praying for all of us and passing along prayer requests. Now it is time for us to storm heaven for Charlotte and baby Cupcake!

I just got off the phone with Charlotte and she is in the hospital right now, due to continued stomach cramping which is being caused by high blood pressure. Her doctor has decided that Cupcake needs to be born today, and will either be inducing labor soon, or preforming a c-section.   Please pray for Charlotte, the baby, her family, and for the doctors.   Thank you!

Loving God, Your love for us is like that of a mother, and You know the hard joy of giving birth. Hold the hand of Your servant Charlotte now and keep her safe; put Your own Spirit into her very breathing and into the new baby, for whom we wait with awe and hope. We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Dear Blessed Mother Mary, my Mother in Heaven thank you for remaining by Charlotte’s side during her pregnancy. Thank you for the graces that she received because of your prayers to your son for her. I ask for your help especially now when she is about to give birth. Pray for her, please, that she will have the necessary strength and that her unborn baby may enter this world safely.

St. Teresa of Avila, Pray for us!

St. Gerard Majella, Pray for us!

UPDATE: Thank you all for your prayers! Cupcake arrived safely via c-section yesterday morning, September 2nd! Congratulations to Charlotte and family!! We can’t wait to meet your precious new daughter!

    I was worried too! So I've been checking everywhere…


    I just read over at Charlotte's sis-in-law's blog that little cupcake was born this morning via c-section, and mom and baby are fine.

    Praise God~ 🙂

    Thank you all for your prayers!

    Our family has been camping since Thursday evening, and though I have spoken with Charlotte on my cell phone, this is the first time I've been able to log on my blog, thanks to wi-fi at a little marina I was able to find. It has been killing me not to have internet service!!

    Cupcake was born via c-section yesterday morning, September 2nd, and both Charlotte and her precious baby girl are both doing fine! Deo Gratias!!

    I will let Charlotte share all the details with you. I am sure she will soon, she was just exhausted when I spoke with her.

    Thank you again for all your prayers!!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
