“Dear Heavenly Father,
I want to thank you for this amazing miracle of life growing in my belly. I thank you for the honor of brining ______________ into our lives.
Any day now, I will get to see his/her voice and get to look into the eyes of the greatest wonder of my life.
Although the anticipation is exciting, I am scared at the same time. While I deliver this child will you hold my hand? Will you make your presence known and numb down the pain so I can truly enjoy the experience?
I know that is a lot to ask, and if you choose to let me feel pain, I will not hold that against you or doubt you exist. I will understand that it is normal and natural to feel uncomfortable during child bearing.
If you could just give me peace of mind, calm my fears and bless this child with perfect health.
I will dedicate him/her in your honor. I pray that he/she will know you, and love you just like I do.
Thank you for this great joy in my heart. Help me be a good mommy to ________________. Bless me with the wisdom to lead him/her in your ways so that he can avoid a lot of painful mistakes.
Let the sins of my past and my husband’s past not be passed down to this generation. ____________________ will start life with a fresh slate. He/She will not inherit my mistakes, failures and sins.
To God be the glory for my little miracle. In Jesus’ precious name, for the love of this child, Amen.”
