Prayer for baby girl

by Alesha (Virginia)

My baby girl was born 111 days early and to top it off she is hemorrhaging in the brain at stage 4 which is very very bad. She has a very low chance of living and if she lives she has a 75% chance she will be very very disabled and not able to function at all. Please please please I ask you to pray for my baby girl.

I ask you lord to please give me strength and hope. My faith is being very tested at this time. I beg you lord to be with my baby girl. Heal her from head to toe.

The odds are not in our favor but I beg you to give me this miracle and not take her away from me. please please please lord I beg you heal her brain. Lord I beg you to ease her pain. please lord be with my baby girl and give her life, health, and happiness. Please lord I pray. Amen.

I have been sooooo anxious to share these photos with you. Some of you may have seen the little video my brother made of us during our maternity photoshoot, but here are the photos!! Thanks to our good friend Dawn for taking these dreamy photos of the three of us;) These are hands down my favorite photos of Jeremy and I. I will forever cherish them and I cannot wait to show them to our precious daughter some day. *Taken when I was 30 weeks pregnant, but I am 34 weeks now.

Don’t miss the video of this photoshoot at the bottom of this post!

Before Jer and I started dating, we this particularly memorable perfect summer day picking warm berries and walking alongside the train tracks through the daisy fields. It was the day that Jeremy began calling me “Daisy Braids” – a nickname that he continued to call me throughout our dating relationship, letter writing, and into our marriage. That day was the day that our love multiplied.

Every year, when the wild daisy fields bloom, it reminds me of the summer we fell in love. And every year, I am more in love with this man that God has given me.

Today, our love continues to multiply in more ways than one;)

A prayer for our baby girl 

Father God, thank you for the blessing of being able to carry and care for this child of yours. I recognize that you are the author of life and your timing is so perfect. Thank you for bringing this sweet baby girl into our lives in your perfect timing and according to your perfect will. Thank you for knitting her together so beautifully and uniquely in my womb (Psalm 139:13). Jesus, I ask that you would bring her into this world healthy and strong, and with red curly hair;) Lord thank you for giving me a husband, and her a father, who will lead her, teach her, and love her with everything he’s got. Thank you for equipping and refining Jeremy in preparation for raising our daughter together. Lord, I pray that our baby girl would be born into this world blameless and innocent, a child of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, where she would shine as a light in this world, holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ she may be proud that she did not run in vain or labor in vain (Philippians 2:15-16). Lord protect her with your full armor the moment she comes into this world, and give her your spirit from the moment she is born. I pray that she would come to know how deep and wide, unconditional and unending, your love is for her (Ephesians 3:18).Lord may she be a fiercely burning light, driving out darkness wherever she is (John 1:5). May she be like an arrow (Psalm 127:4) shot out into this world with purpose to accomplish the work you have for her to do. Lord may she be a compassionate, creative, and courageous daughter, full of joy and overflowing with peace. Give her a strong sense of discernment and good judgment so that she will not be easily deceived. Bless her with iron friendships – friendships that will refine her and sharpen her. I ask for your favor over her life Lord. May she be a Godly woman who leads others to the foot of the cross and loves them the whole way there. Lord, I pray for her purity, that she would not be easily tempted but rather that she would be self-disciplined and self-controlled. May her faithfulness to you would be unwavering, and her devotion to you undivided.  Fill her with your Holy Spirit to help through hurt times and hard decisions. May she be wise and willing, always listening to you God, and obeying what you have called her to do and who you have called her to be. Give her good health and a strong capable body that is not hindered, but that is able to do abundantly more than she could ever ask or imagine. May her spirit be infectious and invite others into the freedom and fullness of Christ – in a field of roses, may she be a wildflower. I pray also for her future husband. Lord may he have parents that know you intimately and follow you wholeheartedly. May his parents teach and instruct him to walk in your ways and to know and love truth. May he grow up to be a Godly, humble, respected, and honorable man who leads his family in faith. Father God thank you for loving this child and for being her protector, provider, redeemer, friend, counselor, encourager, Shepard, and King. Remind her always that she is more precious than rubies (Proverbs 3:15), beautifully and wonderfully made (Psalm 149:13), and unconditionally loved (Psalm 52:8). Lord, I submit this daughter of ours to you, may we raise her and love her in a way that is pleasing to you. In Jesus holy name, Amen.

Here is a little video recap my brother Jack put together for us;) The song in the video is called “Multiplied” by Needtobreathe. This song has lots of meaning to it if you listen to/read the lyrics. One of my all time fav songs.

Your love is like radiant diamonds

Bursting inside us we cannot containYour love will surely come find usLike blazing wild fires singing Your name

God of mercy sweet love of mine

I have surrendered to Your designMay this offering stretch across the skiesAnd these Halleluiahs be multiplied

she really could be here any day now. that is so crazy to think about. i’m so excited and yet totally terrified. i am writing this little piece of  my heart a little timidly. i’m not sure i want to publish this for the world to read, but i write this because it is my heart open and true that glorifies God the most.

prayer for baby girl

Dear Lord, 

for my sweet baby girl, i pray. this girl that you’re bringing into our lives this Christmas is a gift. like a gift wrapped under the tree, just waiting to be opened, i wait for this little arrival. thank you for such an amazing gift!! but even though it is a free gift for us, it is a gift that i give back to you, knowing fully well that you’re hands are stronger than mine to hold her tight, knowing fully well, that You are her real Father.

as she grows, these things i pray: may she fall in love with you early so that she may grow in confidence in You alone and not in any other.

may she grow in courage and strength like Esther who stood up for her beliefs and her people. may this strength and courage help her to face the dangers of the world, but may she know it only comes from You.

Lord, bless my daughter. grow her to be a woman of God.

may she grow in love like Ruth who would not leave her mother-in-law’s side when given the chance. may this love teach her what real grace means so that she may treat all those around her with true love and live in grace daily.

Lord, bless my daughter. grow her to be a woman of God.

may she grow in hope like Mary, who trusted that You are a God who works miracles. may this hope teach her about faith, peace and joy, which are all just gifts from You, nothing that she can make up for herself. may you bless her with these gifts. 

Lord, bless my daughter. grow her to be a woman of God.

i need you, Lord, in every minute of every day to help me raise her to become the girl, the woman, that you’ve created her to be. i need you Lord, as i do not even know HOW to pray for her, HOW to be a mother to her, or even HOW to love her like You do. i know that you will take this feeble attempt at prayer and use it and show me more HOW to do all these things.

Lord, even as i am overwhelmed by the greatness of this gift and the huge responsibility, i thank you for her.  i thank you for such an amazing gift.

amen.
