a prayer request

We have friends, from our church back in California, that are asking everyone they know, and don't know, for prayers for their unborn baby.  Please, if you have a moment, lift up their little one in prayer.

Here is their most recent Facebook update:

"Hello all. Many of you saw a few weeks ago that Brett and I are pregnant. We're now 14 weeks and 3 days and we need your prayers. This week we discovered that our baby is developing abnormally. The baby has developed a large cyst on her back and neck and has fluid building up inside of her. Medic
ally, the cysts are referred to as cystic hygroma. The fluid build up is due to the lymphatic system not functioning properly. This could also be indicative of another developmental abnormality called Turner Syndrome. All that to say, the prognosis is not good. Based on the ultrasound, they don't expect baby to make it into the third trimester and probably not past 20 weeks due to the increase of fluid. And that's why we are posting: to ask you to pray for a miracle. We believe in God, we believe in His son Jesus, and we believe He listens to the prayers of his children. We believe He does miracles and we believe He weeps alongside us, just as He did with the family of Lazarus before He raised him from the dead. So, will you join us in petitioning God for a miracle? Will you pray and ask Him to heal our baby so we can meet her in March? It doesn't have to be a fancy or long prayer. I mostly just pray all day "Lord, heal my baby" and I know He hears me. And perhaps the best prayers I've heard have come from our 3 year old, Jack, who just says what he is thinking and talks to God like He would talk to any of you. Please consider joining us with this simple prayer and ask everyone you know to join us and do the same. I know some of you don't believe in God or have doubts. I ask you to consider praying too and see what God does. Every day the baby keeps growing is a gift and we are so grateful. Join us in praising God and praying for a miracle. Ask your church, Bible study, friends, family, everyone and anyone to join us in prayer. Repost this if you want. Feel free to message me with any questions. We would be happy to answer. -Brett Garvin & Liz Garvin"

Brett, Liz, and Jack would be so grateful for your prayers.
