I bring the little baby that is forming within me to You Lord and pray that You would be with me every step of the way.
Lord Jesus, I ask that Your guiding hand of protection would be over and around and within this little life.
May he or she grow and develop without any problems or complication.
Prepare me, Lord, for motherhood. Prepare us BOTH for the change that is going to take place when our little baby is born and help us to keep very close to You and to give You all the praise and glory.
You know the ongoing difficulties that I have had with my pregnancy – morning sickness and other ailments that seem to have shadowed this pregnancy from the moment that I conceived.
Grant me a motherly heart that is pure, steadfast and generous.
I hand over to you my own concerns; any anxious fears that may come, my own wishes for the little person that I still have no knowledge of.
Grant that my baby may be born healthy in body, keep far from my baby all perils to the soul.
I know that there is pain and problems that are connected with the joy of having a baby, and I don’t want it to appear that all I am doing complaining of feeling ill – when my heart is rejoicing that I am carrying this precious little life within me.
I ask that You would prevent me from having any more complications and illnesses as the time passes and give me the grace and strength I pray, to carry this baby to full term – with a spirit of joy and thanksgiving.
Your joy is indeed my strength and I claim this wonderful promise today – praying that You will support and strengthen me until that wonderful day when I hold my little baby in my arms and even after.
Thank You for hearing my prayers.
In Jesus’ most holy name I pray.
