Heavenly Father, the baby that has been growing within my womb for these many months is now in an incubator fighting for life.. and I feel numb and utterly helpless.
Lord You know the joy and excitement and also the tears and grief that we have gone through these last few weeks and months.. and that our emotions are shot through with so many fluctuating feelings because of this unexpected and premature delivery. I pray that in Your pity and grace You would touch the life of my precious little one and spare their life.. and bring them through into full health and strength..
Lift the heavy burden from my heart and help me to come to terms with what has happened and I pray that I may be able to accept that nothing happens that is not in Your permissive will - and I ask that You would give me the strength, day by day to cope with this unexpected set of circumstances.
Protect my baby from any other form of infection or illness and may this little body be strengthened through Your mighty power.. with each passing day. Give the doctors and nurses the skill to do all that is needed to care for my baby and give me the sufficient strength that only comes from You - and may Your peace reside in my heart - knowing that all things work together for good to those that are called according to Your good purpose. Thank You Father in Jesus name I pray,
Thank You Father for Your day-by-day provision and for supplying all that we need for life and health. Thank You Lord that our table is daily filled with so many good things, just as You have promised and that You faithfully provide for all our bodily necessities.
Forgive us for the times when we have been faithless or forgetful of Your generous provision and yet You have never failed to provide the sustenance that we need for our daily life. Lord.. the blessing that fall from Your hand are good and gracious and we thank You that in Christ we lack no good thing.
Help us never to forget that all good things come from You and keep us from taking Your gracious provision for granted. Instill in each us a heart that is truly grateful and filled our mouths with praise and thanksgiving for our daily food.
We thank You for all You bountiful supply and ask that You would continue to give us our daily bread for our bodily nourishment - and to You we give all the praise and glory, in Jesus name
