Prayer – Facing Another Who is Pregnant

A Prayer for Facing Another Who is Pregnant
from the book Dancing Upon Barren Land – Prayer, Scripture Reflection & Hope for Infertility
by Lesli A. Westfall

“Faithful God, everywhere I turn, I see a pregnant belly. The very thing I desire is all around me. Help my eyes and my heart to turn upward toward You instead of outward upon others. When I see another who is pregnant, or hear of an unplanned pregnancy, help me not to become angry or resentful. Remind me how You’ve known this child even before You formed him / her in his / her mother’s womb. This baby is part of Your ultimate, perfect plan. I ask You to bless these pregnancies and children yet to be born. You are not respecter of persons an what You’ve done for the You are faithful to do for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Scripture Reflection: Job 42:10, Ecclesiastes 7:9 NASB, Jonah 2:7 NASB, Acts 10:34 NASB, Hebrews 11:11 NASB
