Prayer is Such a Strong Force

I have an internet friend who was 23 weeks 3 days with twins when she went into preterm labor.  Doctors told her that labor was imminent and were actually on the bed ready to deliver.  She went from 3 cm dilated to 10 in a matter of minutes.  People all over the world were praying for her and her twins.  Then labor miraculously just stalled.  It was still touch and go for a few days (and still is obviously) but when examined today she had went from fully dilated to an 8-9 cm and her bag of waters which had been taut and bulging has receded and is soft now.  Such huge improvement from just hours before.  Her doctors have said their is no medical reason that labor should have stopped.  

Obviously she still has a long road to bringing these precious babies home, but hitting 24 weeks tomorrow is a huge step.  The steroids will also have had time to work which will help the babies lungs develop more quickly.  If you guys have any prayers, please pray for her and her precious little ones.  Her name is Jennifer by the way.  If you are interested in seeing updates, friend me on the Adventures with Captain Destructo page and I will keep you updated there.  But no news is good news right now!

Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven
