Last year while I was at the She Speaks Conference, the sweetest woman passed me in the hallway, did a doubletake and called back, “Hey, are you Rachel Wojo?” I took a few steps back and we had the most beautiful conversation.
“I stopped to thank you for praying for me in your Facebook page community during and after my miscarriage last year. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your words….”
We chatted for a few minutes and then the sweet news came that my new friend,Hope, is expecting a baby! How fun to catch a glimpse of God’s work in her life!
So before Hope has her baby soon, today I wanted to share a prayer for expecting moms to pray for themselves. If you know a Hope who could use the reminder to pray for God’s grace and mercy, then this would be a beautiful prayer of blessing for her to pray.
A Prayer for Expecting Moms
Today I’m coming to you
Holding the sacredness of life
Within my body.
You have knitted together a soul in human form;
And You have given me the privilege
Of caring for this soul.
What an honor to be called “Mommy.”
What a joy to be called Yours.
To hold a heart is a treasure;
To have a baby is a blessing.
And now I ask for your wisdom
For the journey ahead.
May the labor of love open the door of opportunity
To sculpt a spirit for a lifetime.
Thank you for the privilege, Jesus.
Special congratulations to Hope and continued prayers for a safe delivery and healthy baby! Can’t wait to find out whether it’s a boy or girl!
