Month Six

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

A Prayer for Generosity
month 6

God of generosity,
You came to us that we might have life
And have it more abundantly.
Let me celebrate the fullness of this gift
As my body rounds and stretches
To make space for new life.

Help me to carve space
In my heart and mind
To welcome this child
Into our home,
Into our family,
Into our daily lives.

Remind me each day
How this long journey
Through pregnancy and birth
Invites a mother’s gift of self,
In body, heart and mind.

Grant me a generous spirit
To share my life with this child –
A calling that will change
With each new season,
But will last in love
For the rest of my days.

In generosity I pray,

Amen.

  2. Hello.. I’m 26 weeks pregnant and a few days ago I got a call from my doctor saying that my AFP quad screening test result came back positive. This is my first pregnancy and I have a appointment set up for next week, but I was wondering if this is a bad or a good thing and what exactly does it mean if the results come back positive? I just want to be prepared when I go to my appointment. I really don’t want to loose my baby and I don’t have the money to pay for medical bills if something happens to my baby during my pregnancy or birth ( God forbid) .. I just really need prayer that everything is fine with my baby.
