I’m sure we all know at least one woman who is currently expecting, if not more. I can’t speak from personal experience, but I imagine it is not an easy thing to do. Many complain of lack of sleep, weight gain, aches, pains, hot flashes, and many other changes. It is most likely a life-changing event, and they need help. Today let’s pray for them and the babies they are nurturing.
A baby is formed upon conception and slowly develops into a full human. This developing process is going on inside an expecting mother’s body, and I imagine it can greatly affect how she feels most of the time. We pray that these babies may mature well, that all their body parts will develop as they should and that the mother can feel at ease knowing God has chosen her for this role, and He will see her through.
"Lord, today we pray for expecting mothers and the babies within. We ask that you may provide them with health, energy, and patience to endure the process of not only growing the child but also giving birth. Allow them to see this life change as a blessing. May they cherish the life they carry within them. Help them with the day-to-day changes they face as the baby grows and help them to adapt after the baby arrives. No change is easy, and going from mainly caring for yourself to caring for another can be difficult, but with you, all things are possible. Guide them through this time, in Jesus' name, amen."
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!
