Prayer is crucial to the life of the church and the health of its people. If there is something you would like prayer for, you can post your request to the prayer wall below. You have the option to share publicly for everyone to see, anonymously in which everyone can see the prayer request but not your name, or choose to have it sent only to the elders by selecting "DO NOT Share This". You can also view others' prayer requests and let them know that you have been praying for them.

I prayed for this

Prayed for 24 times.

Please pray for Justin and Sarah Jones and their unborn child Asher. For those that don't know the Jones', Justin attended and was active serving at Crossway for several years before moving to North Carolina. Sarah has been diagnosed with gestational hypertension / preeclampsia and is currently hospitalized. Here's a summary of their situation:

The doctors want the baby to remain in Sarah's womb for as long as possible, with the ultimate goal being 37 weeks (they will be 30 weeks this coming Thursday). The intermediate goal is 34 weeks but he (Asher) would be taken anywhere along the way if things turned for the worse. Sarah also has limited lung capacity due to nerve damage from her pacemaker surgery last year so shortness of breath is an issue as Asher is growing.

Shortly after admission to the hospital they were told that they might need to remain hospitalized till the delivery, but she has responded very well to treatments, and there is a chance of returning home as early as tomorrow. With them living 2 hours from the hospital, they ask we pray for wisdom regarding this decision. The last thing they want is to go home prematurely, though they'd obviously rather be there than the hospital.

Please join them in praying that the blood pressure medication works indefinitely and for everything to remain normal until c-section scheduled for 37 weeks, as well for Asher to continue growing and in the interim. In Justin's words, "and if that is not God's plan, to have peace and trust in Him and the Dr's. wisdom."
