Month Three

“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”
Galatians 5:22-23

A Prayer for Peace

God of peace,
As my appearance
And appetite and energy
All begin to change,
Let me seek the peace I crave
In your unchanging love.

Help me to remember
That you are constant
When all around me is shifting.

Calm my anxieties
With the comfort of your presence.
Quiet the storm of my fears
With your calm.

Whisper still, small words of trust
And cradle my baby
In the warmth of your love.

Help me to celebrate
The life growing within me,
The child taking shape
In the dark chaos of creation.
Keep your horizon of hope
Ever before my eyes.

In peace I pray,

Amen.

    I am a first time expectant mother, today was the mark of the beginning of my 10th week of pregnancy and tomorrow is my first ultrasound. I am both excited and anxious. I have a small history of miscarriage and am just praying that my baby is healthy and sound. I know I will be a good mother, after I give birth is not what worries me. It is the time that I carry my child in my womb that I hope I make no mistakes for the sake of my baby’s health. These prayers and ones like these, help me to feel closer to the lord and reassure me that he is watching over us every step of the way. As is our mother Mary.

    I have three healthy children for whom I feel eternally blessed.
    I was given two healthy boys who are now aged 8 and 9 and I have a beautiful daughter aged 15 months.
    In 2012 I suffered a late miscarriage and my Isaac was taken by god to be a special angel in heaven (this is what I tell my children and it brings me peace).
    I am pregnant again 10 wks 6 days, and am experiencing bleeding. I am consumed with fear.
    Please pray for my family as I will for yours

    It’s my first pregnancy and it has not been easy. From nauseous to not being able to keep water down I’m 3 months and right now I have two ear infections. I am in pain and I’ve been praying for a quick recovery and my baby to keep safe. Please pray for us. I just want to feel better and my baby safe from any harm.

      Babyv, my heart goes out to you because I know pregnancy can be so hard, especially with morning sickness and other complications. I hope that you will have peace and comfort soon. God bless you and your baby.
