Heavenly Father, I give you all the glory and all the praise for this incredible child growing within me. What an honour and privilege, what an opportunity and responsibility. As I approach their day of birth, I thank you for your perfect timing and your perfect process. I thank you that you will start working with and in me already now, preparing the way: body, mind and spirit.
May I enjoy great rest and precious times with my family and friends in the days leading up to bubs’ arrival. May I enjoy a peace that only you can prescribe and a joy that comes only from you.
I thank you for your incredible design of the woman’s body and that I have within me everything I need to birth my baby peacefully, naturally and joyfully. I thank you that I will embrace every contraction and, in doing so, you will ensure bub is positioned just perfectly for their arrival. I ask that you will protect both baby and I throughout the entire birthing journey and that it will be a smooth, seamless, complication-free event. I call into being all the right hormones at the right time to naturally work within my body and that I will feel relaxed yet strong, confident and more than capable. Thank you for designing the very best path and process and I trust that all will flow in the way you created it to.
Thank you that I will be surrounded by the very best support and medical professionals at the right time – positive, encouraging and just as excited to meet bub as I am.
I ask for your peace to fill me every moment and that I will really walk with you, be led and guided by you, and truly be present and enjoy this incredible time.
Thank you for the wonderful support of my partner and I pray over them and their mighty role. Keep them strong, excited, positive and supportive every step of the way. Draw us closer than we have ever been and bless us abundantly as we step into this new season and into our new roles.
Lord, I thank you that the fruits of the Spirit will be in abundance as this miracle baby makes their safe arrival into the world: love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness… and I bind anything that is not from you – it has no power and is not welcome.
I thank you for great bonding and connection between both bub and I as they are welcomed into the family. I thank you for excellent health for both of us and that feeding will be established quickly and easily.
My beautiful baby, you are both blessed and a blessing. You are cherished dearly with an incredible anointing on your life. Welcome to the world!!! I can’t wait to meet you!
