A Prayer For Labor and Delivery

It was time. All the feelings of anticipation, fear, excitement, joy, nervousness, and relief flooded my heart as I prepared to head to the hospital and deliver my baby boy.

And then we prayed and prayed some more! I’ve taken that prayer and turned it into this beautiful printable you can print out and tuck it into the bag you’ve got ready for the day when your little one arrives.

May it serve as an encouragement to you and inspiration for your own prayers as you enter into one of the most beautiful seasons of your life!

You can also print off a coordinating set of 12 key scripture passages that have been hand-picked for you to meditate on as part of the wonderful, scary, exhilarating, exhausting, fantastic, joyful miracle of bringing a child into the world!

Now, It’s YOUR TURN! What feelings well up in your heart as you approach labor and delivery?

Please, feel free to leave your prayer request in the comments below or reply to someone's request for prayer.
