A Prayer for Pregnant Mothers
Last year was my very first Mother’s Day. No, I hadn’t the faintest clue what my baby would look like, his gender, or what he felt like inside of my womb. I was two months pregnant. Motherhood begins long before the physical birth of a baby. Before entering the world, he was fearfully and wonderfully made, knit together, and created by God. I determined to claim the title mom when I found out I was pregnant. I was a mom of a baby in my womb. The Lord created that baby, the moment of conception leading to immediate life. Jeremiah 1:5 says before he formed Jeremiah in his mother’s womb, He set him apart as a prophet. God sees our unformed substance. (Psalm 139:16) My very first Mother’s Day, my family celebrated the baby and me so sweetly. It felt right. We acknowledged and celebrated his life and that God chose me to care for him, just as we did on Father’s Day for my husband. Today we are going to pray over pregnant mothers in this unique season of motherhood. Let's pray.
