When you invent a prayer of your own, or when you pick out something suitable from the already existing variations, you should always make sure that the prayer speaks about you and your child together. Praying for your child alone is great, but you should never forget about yourself. Of course, you are free to pray for the entire family that surrounds you, for all those you love so that they are always beside you. Still, you and your baby should be the main point of each of your prayers.
A prayer for pregnant women: to the Heavenly Father
Within me, there is a new hope and new beginning. Inside me, there is a touch of creation. Every day it grows and changes, it develops and stirs inside my womb. This is a miracle that amazes and touches me. This is a wonder of a new life, yet tiny but growing with every single day.
Wrap us both with your never-ending love. Let us stay close to your hope and promises. Let us snuggle in the warmth and comfort of your almighty hands. Let us bless you and your protection.
Now, we can sleep peacefully, knowing that you are with us. We can sing with your angels and rejoice every day. Thank you, Father. Amen.
