Welcome to Pray For Your Baby Ministries! If you are like me, you believe that praying for your baby is not an option, it is a necessity! When I became pregnant with my first child, I began to say baby prayers for my child that was growing inside of me. As soon as my son arrived, I could see that God had heard my prayers. Thirteen years ago I was a new Christian and I didn’t realize the power of praying for my unborn child until after he was born. God had heard and answered my prayers and He wants to do the same for you today!
When Micah was about 2 years old, God spoke to me and told me to share my story with other moms-to-be. Pray For Your Baby Ministries was born and I’m excited to share with you my new website so that if you all ready have a child, you can Pray For Your Son or Pray For Your Daughter specifically! I hope these prayers encourage and guide you as you spend time with the Lord each day praying over your children. And make sure to sign up for the free weekly pregnancy prayers if you are expecting. And please don’t forget to leave a prayer request on our world-wide Prayer Wall!

Over the years, I have gone through different seasons of healing. Past abuse and sin in my life needed to be dealt with. I’ve cried through many hours of counseling, which was much needed and a blessing, but sometimes, God will use a simple prayer to set us free from the guilt that we hold onto from our past. Have you struggled with a miscarriage, infertility, or abortion? Please open your heart and allow God speak to you today. He can set you free!
One of the truths of gardening is that you never know when your garden will share something brand new with you. It’s almost always a surprise. Hopefully a delightful surprise.
Every winter, I collect praying mantis egg cases from my folks’ property and scatter them around my garden. Then, every spring, I celebrate each time I discover a baby mantis amongst the vegetables and flowers. But, for all these years of fostering praying mantises, I’ve never once witnessed the hatching of an egg case. That changed yesterday.
It’s a bit like watching an alien hatch. In fact, it’s a lot like that. Don’t believe me? Check out this video:
A little bit creepy, right? But, also, very very cool.
If you’re unfamiliar with praying mantises, you should know that they are wonderful bugs to have around in the garden. The little ones will gorge themselves on aphids, flea beetles and other tiny pests, while larger mantises eat cabbage moths, beetles and, sometimes, one another. Hungry praying mantises don’t discriminate. They eat garden pests and beneficial bugs with equal abandon. So, yes, you are making things a bit more challenging for your lady bugs. But you’re also introducing another predator, which is generally a good thing. And, of course, your resident bug-eating birds will thank you for welcoming more big, tasty insects.
You know what they say: If you want to grow an ecosystem, you have to sacrifice a few bugs.
How do you encourage praying mantises and other hungry, pest-eating predators in your garden? Click here to share your tips in the comments section.
