Anna Marie Maxwell and Baby: Things Are Starting, Please Pray

Christopher and Anna Marie Maxwell

Thank you all for your prayers. This week has been full of waiting and appointments. They’ve begun the induction process and if Baby doesn’t arrive overnight, they will be heading into the hospital tomorrow morning (Saturday) to continue the induction process.

Prayer requests:

  • For Anna Marie and strength. Not only is she preparing for an early birth but also the emotions related to the tumor. She has such a sweet spirit through it all. She needs your prayers as she enters this weekend.
  • For Baby to be born healthy and without a NICU stay if possible.
  • A great medical team to be surrounding Anna Marie and Baby.
  • Grace for the children as they wait too (they’re being cared for by aunts)

With love and thank you for praying,
Sarah for Christopher and Anna Marie

“For thou hast possessed my reins:
thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
marvellous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.”
Psalm 139:13-14

  13. Dear Anna Marie and Christopher, I am praying for you and of course your sweet children and new baby and all the Maxwell family, the doctors and nurses and all whom you will witness to.
