Pregnancy is an exciting and joyous time in a woman’s life. But the journey is not an easy one. So it is a time to lean on God and pray for strength and protection.
Children are a heritage from God (Psalm 127:3) and God is the giver of life. In Him, we find peace, in Him we find strength, in Him we are protected.
The 280-day pregnancy journey can be difficult and exhausting. With morning sickness, body weakness, pains, and aches in places you didn’t even know could hurt. It is best to find comfort in the Lord by reading his words and praying over your pregnancy.
Below are some pregnancy prayers you need to pray over your pregnancy for a healthy pregnancy and safe delivery.
