“Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you for the privilege of bringing a life that you have created into this world. I will be giving birth soon and this brings many emotions to the surface. I give my fears worries and concerns to you.
Right now, I am closing my eyes and purposefully taking slow, deep breaths. I am picturing that with every breath I take, I breathe your Holy Spirit a bit deeper into my lungs. As I am submitting to the presence of you in my mind, body and spirit, I accept the peace that washes over every part of me. Your peace relaxes my muscles like a warm bath.
In my mind, I allow the love of God to pour over me like warm drops of oil on my forehead. As the oil trickles down my face and onto my chest, I feel the spread of your love with it. In this moment, I release all doubt and fear of what can or may happen. I know that all things are in your hands, and nothing can change the plans that you have.
Lord, I release my circumstance, my body, my baby and my mind into your strong and capable arms. In my spirit I can see that my issues that felt so big and heavy to me actually look like tiny white feathers floating lightly in your hands. I feel physically lighter as I see this.
My worries, fears and stress are gone, because I have given them to you. My pain is gone, because I am relaxing into your love and that is healing me.
My heart is feeling a rush of joy as I relax in this tender moment. You are sustaining me, just as my womb is giving life to my little baby growing inside it.
Lord, as I abide in your presence, help me to remember that you promised to never leave me or forsake me.
Help me to promise you that very same promise. Today, I smile as I make the choice not leave you or forsake you.
I chose to be healed, be happy and whole for my family, baby, myself and to you. Help me to remember to stay here as this is the safest place for me to be. In Jesus precious name, as I go about my day, keep me in the sunshine of your shalom. Amen.”
