My first Prayer Buddy

This was my first go-round at prayer buddies. I was very excited to find out that my prayer buddy was someone whose blog I had never read before. I loved that I was going to get to "know" a new person. I enjoyed reading about her IF troubles, adoption troubles, travel, marraige, and more.

It was a honor to pray for Lauren, at "Magnify the Lord with Me" everyday. I don't know why God has chosen not to answer my prayers for her as her adoption did not go through, and I wish I knew. Maybe it was divine providence that she was chosen for my prayer buddy as we have both had 4 losses, and that she has such amazing faith through all of her disappointments. She has strength, faithfulness, and desire, and I know God will be blessing them very soon with a child.

Dear Heavenly Father,
I ask you to send your divine mercy upon Lauren and her husband.
I ask you to continually bless and enrich their marriage each day.
Give them the strength, faith, and hope that their prayers of having a child will be answered soon so that they can worship You in an even greater way, through the raising of a beautiful Christian son or daughter on earth.
I ask this in your most holy name, for ever and ever. Amen.


  1. Oh Allie, this post touched me. You both are beautiful and holy women and are such an inspiration to many. I too have no idea what is going on in terms of your miscarriages and her adoptions, but hopefully there will healing, hope, and joy brought into both of your lives VERY SOON! You are in my prayers. Love in Christ!

  2. Allie, I dont' know if you saw but I was your prayer buddy. I posted on my blog. :) God Bless!

  3. Beautiful post. Your match with Lauren was so perfect since you have both shown such strength and faith despite the suffering of your losses.

  4. Thank you, sweet prayer buddy. Your prayers have most definitely been heard. Only the grace of God could have carried (and continue to carry) me through this last week.
