You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. -Psalm 139:15 Pregnancy is a phenomenal time like no other, filled with preparation and anxiety, excitement and hope. By its very nature, pregnancy also means continuous growth and change. What remains constant is God's love and care for babies, mothers, and their families. We need only remember to call on him, praise him, thank him, and ask for his help during this special journey. A Prayer for Baby is a forty-week pregnancy devotional, with Scripture-based prayers meant to encourage and comfort expectant mothers. It is also a learning tool, as the prayers and Bible verses are intertwined with information about the baby's development inside the womb. Knowing exactly what is happening during each stage of pregnancy allows you to pray for the specific steps in your baby's mental, spiritual, and physical growth. With scientific evidence pointing to possible benefits of reading to unborn children, you may even want to read the prayers aloud. Finally, this book is a place for expectant mothers to share their own concerns, dreams, and reflections. Using the designated pages to write notes to your baby turns a series of devotionals into a personal keepsake. Whether you give this to yourself or someone you know, A Prayer for Baby is a daily reminder of God's wondrous work and gift of creation.
