If you or someone you know is expecting a baby, read the
following so helpful prayer for that small miracle that will soon be here! I
did, and am so glad I did.
Prayer for my Baby
My Lord and Redeemer,
Inside me is a sanctuary where You
abide. Inside my womb you fashion our child and define every feature. The
thought or Your work is more than I can comprehend, and yet, I delight in
knowing that You are here, I have seen pictures of babies in the womb,
and I am amazed at Your work. My child at each stage of development is such a
I smile to learn that the first
organ to function is the heart. Would a lesser designer have begun with the
brain? And so, I ask for my baby, that its heart will be perfect. Four flawless
chambers beating in perfect sync. From there I envision the rest of the body
that has just begun: spinal cord, lungs, and brain. Oh Lord, our Creator,
please complete each detail with precision and strength.
As the face and limbs begin
to form, please grow sturdy bones and sound muscles. Make her eyes
much stronger than mine. give this dear little one ears that will hear
for a lifetime. Give her a strong mind that will serve as an oasis for
truth and wisdom. Lord, please oversee my baby's growth. Give our child legs
to run and arms to hug. Fashion hands that are skillful, yet
loving. I trust You to provide all that is needed.
Remember my baby until she's
complete. Keep her safe inside until her time is appointed. I have faith
because You are the maker of all, You stretched out the heavens, and spread out
the earth. (Isaiah 44:24) Your presence gives me peace. I will wait patiently
while You work.
Must-Have List of Items Needed for Your Newborn Baby
2006 - How
wonderful God is to have allowed us to conceive our first child. I remember that
hospital visit to give birth to my daughter like it was yesterday!
remember praying "Lord, You are my refuge!" over and over again!
Adding that as a sinner I deserved no special treatment, but if I could ask for
one thing, it would be to bring this child to the world with full pain yet quickly.
He was kind to me and allowed me to give birth within two and a half hours,
isn't that a miracle!?! God does answer prayers and that is just one of many
He has granted me. I cannot say how many times He has responded, but I know it
is MANY MANY MANY.
I shall forever be grateful and obedient to Him, our God, the maker of us all.
He is my light, my salvation, my deliverer, my rock, my fortress, my redeemer. I
love my God and my Savior for granting me the wishes of my heart. But let me
just add that He hears me, and not just me, but you too wherever you are, when I
purposely follow His will, instead of mine. READ MORE

I knelt to pray but not for long
I had too much to do
Must hurry off and get to work
For bills would soon be due
And as I said a hurried prayer
Jumped up from off my knee
My Christian duty now was done
My soul could be at ease
All through the day I had no time
To speak a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends
They'd laugh at me I feared
No time -- No time too much to do
That was my constant cry
No time to give to those in need
At last it was time to die
And when before the Lord I came
I stood with downcast eyes
Within His hands He held a book
It was the BOOK OF LIFE
He looked inside the book and said
Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down
But never found the time.
