Five prayers in preparations for your baby
With this attitude of humble dependence on God through Jesus Christ, what are some specific ways we moms can pray as we prepare for our babies in this expectant time? These have been some of my pleas as of late:

1. That we would love Christ more than our daughter.

Deliver us from idolizing this precious gift, Father! May our first love always be Jesus Christ, and may we seek our supreme satisfaction in him alone. Help us to root our identity in your Son, not in our daughter.

2. That our baby would know Christ.

O God, be pleased to save our child and deliver her from the snare of death! Open her eyes to see your glory in the face of Jesus Christ from a young age. Spare her from years of wandering, and appoint her to eternal life. May it please you to deliver her from sin and death, that we may call her “sister” as well as daughter.

3. That we’ll continually entrust our baby into God’s hands.

Every good and perfect gift comes from you, God. What do we have that we did not receive, even this child? She is your possession; she is not ours to claim. Help me trust you with her delivery and her entire life; humble me to your sovereign control; reveal to me the great freedom and joy of knowing you are good and do good, always.

4. For a daily desperation for God’s Word.

Convict me that the greatest gift I can give our daughter is the good news of your Son. Incline my heart to your testimonies, so I will run hungry to your word each day! Make us ambassadors for Christ in our home by feeding us on your perfect truth so we can nourish our child with it each day.

5. That our child would love the church.

May our daughter find another home in the body of Christ and never resent our commitment to it. May she take great delight in your people, in corporate worship, in serving others, and ultimately in Jesus, the Head.

I Will Sing for Joy

Expectant mom, add your desperate petitions to these! May your joy in Jesus Christ abound as you humbly depend on him through prayer in this season of preparation. May you sing along with David —
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips…
for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me. (Psalm 63:5, 7–8)
