Urgent Prayer Request

If I could enlist the help of all the diligent prayer warriors... A dear friend delivered her beautiful baby boy 3 weeks early by emergency C-Section. The baby was born with Down's Syndrome and possibly also leukemia.
Please pray for this little guy and his parents that they will be able to accept the grace God gives them to deal with this difficult time.
Thanks in advance!

My prayers are with the parents and the baby. Hopefully he doesn't have leukemia. How worried your friends must be!

God bless you, Karin.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
