Month Three

“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”
Galatians 5:22-23

A Prayer for Peace

God of peace,
As my appearance
And appetite and energy
All begin to change,
Let me seek the peace I crave
In your unchanging love.

Help me to remember
That you are constant
When all around me is shifting.

Calm my anxieties
With the comfort of your presence.
Quiet the storm of my fears
With your calm.

Whisper still, small words of trust
And cradle my baby
In the warmth of your love.

Help me to celebrate
The life growing within me,
The child taking shape
In the dark chaos of creation.
Keep your horizon of hope
Ever before my eyes.

In peace I pray,

Amen.

  1. I am a first time expectant mother, today was the mark of the beginning of my 10th week of pregnancy and tomorrow is my first ultrasound. I am both excited and anxious. I have a small history of miscarriage and am just praying that my baby is healthy and sound. I know I will be a good mother, after I give birth is not what worries me. It is the time that I carry my child in my womb that I hope I make no mistakes for the sake of my baby’s health. These prayers and ones like these, help me to feel closer to the lord and reassure me that he is watching over us every step of the way. As is our mother Mary.

  16. Hi,
    I’m 11 weeks pregnant currently and last couple of days i had spotting.. I’m so much worried, please pray for us.. This is our first pregnancy after trying for more than 1 year.. Please pray for us.. We need our baby without any issues..

  17. After two years of trying to conceive and a few failed fertility treatments, we conceived naturally with twins. I was so shocked to learn of this double blessing and nervous as I wondered if I could handle it. Through it all, I was happy. During my 12 week scan, it was discovered that one twin stopped developing at 7 weeks 4 days. I am so heartbroken. This is a huge loss for me. I need to find the strength to go on as I worry about the health of the surviving twin. Please pray for me. I really need it. Thanks you!

    1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I will keep you and your baby in my prayers, especially for your heart as you both grieve and hope. Thank you for sharing your story here – peace to you.

  18. Hello, I am 12 weeks pregnant and I have 3 fibroids. I have also been having bleeding and I just pray that everything continues to go good. I lost my last pregnancy and I think that is why I am so paranoid this time with having the bleeding. Please pray that this baby is going to be ok. Thank you

  19. I’m in need of a prayer. I’m currently 12 weeks pregnant after losing my son at 19 weeks to a cord accident. I’m overwhelmed with anxiety and fear. My prayers are for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

  20. I m 9 weeks it’s my first time need blessings of God . I m very nervous about scans and test pls pray for my HAPpy, healthy, and tension free pregnancy. Really need blessings.

  21. I am 10 weeks, 4 days pregnant. My husband and I have been trying for over three years & we were doing fertility treatments for almost two years. We had to very early miscarriages 3 years ago. I’m excited, but terrified we’ll go to the doc and they won’t see a heart beat or the baby has stopped developing. I’m so anxious and fearful. Please join me in praying for the health of my baby, a healthy pregnancy, and a safe and healthy full term delivery.

  22. I am 10 weeks and 5 days pregnant. My husband and I have been trying for over three years and using fertility treatments for almost two years. We had two chemical pregnancies back to back at the start of our journey, and this is the first time we’ve been pregnant since 2013. I’m terrified something is going to happen to the baby, or me. We’ve started to tell family and it’s making me anxious. I’ll be devastated if something should happen. Despite these fears, I know I need their support. I ask that you join me in praying for a healthy baby, a healthy pregnancy, and a safe and successful full-term delivery.

  23. Please pray for me, I have a history of PCOS since I was 13 yrs old. I was under the impression that getting pregnant would not be easy for me as i also struggle with weight issues. But after getting married to the love of my life, we have been praying for a baby since last year. the Lord has been very gracious and I was able to conceive naturally this year, we were not expecting it to happen so quickly. I am currently 9 weeks pregnant. We were so happy when we found out, but anxious about the pregnancy due to my weight and PCOS issues. Praying for a healthy baby and looking forward to raising the child for God’s glory.
    We are also in a huge dilemma about our finances and mortgage. Our hearts desire is that I can stay home with baby for at least 2 years and return to workforce.. due to our financial burden we are hoping the Lord will find a way for me to enjoy my time with the baby in the initial years.

  24. Please pray for me. This is my second pregnacy, the 1st one ended in a miscarriage, and we were left so heartbroken by it. My baby stopped growing at 9 1/2 weeks, it took us 10 months before seeing another positive on the pregnancy test. Excited but at the same time scared and worried that it might happen again. All we wanted is a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. Please pray for me.

  25. Please pray for me..
