PRAYER IN PREGNANCY
Illustrated by Francine Holland
Published by Wren Publications
Pregnancy is an incredible, life-changing and wonderful transition in each parent's life, and the beginning of a new life. From the moment of conception and as pregnancy proceeds to birth, this book offers prayer for the mother's pregnancy in every step of the journey. These are spiritually nourishing not only at times of overwhelming joy and amazement, but also if things become difficult causing pain anxiety to one or both parents.
These prayers reflect important insights into the complex and often conflicting feelings that can be associated with going through pregnancy and birth. It is a huge life event, perhaps the most significant of all. Experiences range from positive feelings of thankfulness, joy or relief, to negative feelings of anxiety, anger or grief. Each new identity involves the loss of a former identity. Every beginning means facing an end. The prayers are framed with short quotes from the Bible.
An illustrated collection of prayers about the joys and sorrows of pregnancy and birth, that were written by ordinary men and women like you and I, in pregnancy.
