We pray you will invite God into the crazy journey of pregnancy as your body begins to grow and change and as your heart prepares for motherhood. Fear not…you are not alone. God is near; He is living and He is active! Allow His presence to fill your heart and mind today and give you joy! Congratulations!

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for this miracle of life inside of me. This news has me full of conflicting emotions like fear and excitement, anticipation and worry. I trust You with this new life, and with mine. Jesus, please come near and bring protection to my body, guard my heart and mind, and allow me to experience Your presence today.

Holy Spirit, thank you for breathing life into my womb! You are knitting together my child moment by moment. What an incredible thought! This new life is part of Your great plan for the world and I pray that my baby would grow into a strong and healthy Christ follower. Help me surrender to Your truth and trust that You are good. I have nothing to fear! Thank you for making me a mother, in Jesus’ name,

AMEN

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
— Psalm 139:13-14 NASB
