In His Hands

Dear Father, thank You for this new baby.
Would You protect and nurture this baby and bring this pregnancy to full term.
In labor, would You remove all fear and replace it with faith and expectation.
Please give those attending the birth wisdom to take the best care of mother and baby.
Please let this baby be born normal and whole, healthy and strong, and at home with no complications with baby or mother.
Father, thank you for hearing my prayer, for I pray in the name of him who is called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

I received this prayer card tucked in with the box of medical supplies I ordered for our home birth. I ordered from a lovely family-run store, called In His Hands. Ordering was simple, the package was shipped that day, and came in a timely manner. All three of those things seem to be hard to come by today, so a special note saying thanks is in order I believe!


  1. I'm praying for you and I'm sure you'll do fine! On the day you give birth there will be 300,000 other women in labor with you. Take comfort in that, you can do it!

  2. Thank you for that reminder...when I stop and think about it I do get a little nervous. There is way too much to do before that day comes, I haven't taken too much time to stop and worry!
