"beautiful mama" week 3: prayers for pregnancy

When I asked the Lord what He wanted me to talk about this morning, He lead me to Psalm 91.

Pray this over yourself, your husband, your children and your home.

This is not just for tiny newborns all snuggled in the safety of your arms or in utero.

This is also a cry for Mamas who have grown-up children. A Mama's protection is fierce, but even we cannot physically protect our children every waking moment. We must surrender our kids to the Almighty Father, who has His angels around them wherever they go when we cannot be with them.

This is also a prayer over Mamas who have lost a baby and have a piece (or more) of their heart longing to go to Heaven and meet their loved one(s). They Lord is inviting you to take rest in the shelter of his wings. Trust Him even if it's the hardest thing you've ever had to do. Even though you feel yourself drowning under the weight of grief, that pain will not overtake you. You will be rescued from it, you will feel joy again.

Open your hands to receive this, Mama, and then place your hands over your family and declare it over them!

Psalm 91:1-16 (NLT)

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you. Just open your eyes, and see how the wicked are punished.
If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!
The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.
