With free pregnancy prayer cards
I’d gone to bed tired and weary, at the end of my 3rd pregnancy, wondering, ‘When is this baby coming?’
I opened my Bible and my eyes fell on this verse:
“Before the midwife can get there, they’ve already had the baby.” Exodus 1:19, The Message Translation
God knew exactly how I was feeling and his sense of humour cheered me up and reassured me.
Well, our Sam didn’t arrive quite that quickly, thankfully! He was born 2 days later, and I had plenty of time to get to the hospital!
There are lots of verses in the Bible related to pregnancy and birth.
Through each of my pregnancies, God has used them to minister to me.
I write out the ones that are most meaningful to me, read them, speak them out, and pray them for myself and baby. They build faith for an easy pregnancy and birth, and a healthy happy baby.
There were some weeks in my pregnancies, especially at the end, when I would pray verses out every night when I went to bed.
The Bible verses I used are listed below. You can look them up in a Bible or on BibleGateway.com. Write them out, meditate on them, and speak them out in prayer.
