Morning Prayer – Baby Related Holidays
Baby Related Holidays
For those who live in the United States, Mother’s day is right around the corner. I know how hard it can be. What is one of the most celebrated holidays can be one of the most difficult too. I do know too, that the only way to get through this upcoming celebrated weekend is through Jesus and His Word. My hope is you’ll take this prayer and make it your own. Pray in a way that is comfortable to you. Take the time to meditate or perhaps even memorize some of the scripture provide.
You can and you will make it through this week! I’m praying for you. Hang in there!
“Almighty God, it seems as if every time I turn around I am faced with a celebration involving a baby. In my heart, I don’t want to be jealous, angry, or envious, but it is hard to face these days. You said in Your Word You would go before me and be with me. You have not forsake me and you are with me at each celebration. I ask for my focus to be outward toward others rather than inward toward myself. I pray for blessings on the new life being welcomed into this world with gifts and words and blessings. I thank you for all the mothers and fathers who are being celebrated on these special days. As I feel compelled to attend the event out of duty, I ask You to dissolve away my heaviness and strengthen me according to Your Word. Most of all, I thank You in advance for the day I will celebrate the blessing of my own children. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you, he will never leav you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged.
My life dissolves and weeps itself away for heaviness; raise me up and strengthen me according to [the promises of] Your word.
Rejoice with those who rejoice.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for tis is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
