Dear Lord, you know each heart. Even before it’s created in the womb, you’ve already written plans for each life. We are so fearfully and wonderfully made. Forgive us Lord, when we choose to disregard your plans.
Today, Lord Jesus, I want to lift up to you every Mother that has found themselves at the crossroads – of carrying the created life of their unborn child. I offer you praise for every life that was saved. I thank you Lord, that I was one of them. Everyone reading this today was saved. Many, only by the grace of God survived. May those of us who have lived – grow into the designed plan that you have created for us before the beginning of time.
For those little blessings that did not make it full term, I thank you Lord for receiving them into your family in Heaven. May they one day be joined together – Mother & child –as you designed.
I pray a special blessing over the Mothers who have lost a child through abortion – whether by their choice or the choice of another. It’s easy sometimes to take life for granted. But when the life of an unborn child is lost, whether by abortion or miscarriage, it becomes a matter of the soul - a connection left unfulfilled. Lord, I grieve with those who have lost a child this way. Every mother who has lost bone of their bone and flesh of their flesh knows the sanctity of life. The very blood within their veins spilled out and into the tiny life of their unborn child.
You, O Lord are the creator of life. You created the design for connection between Mother and child, before the beginning of time. The fact that these unborn babies aren’t here in the earth realm doesn’t change your plan. So, today, I pray divine connection between these lost little blessings – now within your care – and the mother’s who placed them there – willingly, thoughtlessly or through no choice of their own. They’re all the same in your scope of things. The sanctity of life and their unblemished innocence- placed them there.
My humble prayer is that every mother who has stood face to face at the window between life and loss of life – will come to know the heartbeat of their lost unborn child. Reach down from Heaven, O Lord, and heal their broken connection. May they not be separated for eternity.
Thank you, Lord, for your indescribable gift of life. For your infinite mercy and grace. I praise you, Lord for receiving these little blessings into your own family, that they might enjoy eternity with you. May we not forget how precious we are to you. How valuable life is in your hands – for we were created to love and be loved by God. Help us, O Lord, to see life from your perspective. We need so desperately to see. Open our eyes and our hearts. Surprise us with glimpses from Heaven. May we see in the spirit realm – the multitudes of tiny footprints that are now at home in the family of God. We give you Glory, Lord.
In the precious Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

I was the first child after 5 (five....) miscarriages my mother endured. I am now 37 and most grateful to be here. I have a Divine appointment and I am well aware of it every day.ReplyDelete
God has been connecting me to several blogs this morning that have the same theme! LIFE!
At the HEART of our God is LIFE!
This is a most precious and timely post. I join you in prayer for the unborn and for the mothers who may step aside God's choice, [for life] and make a wrong choice to end some other 'chosen' life! My prayer is that God will manifest His presence so strongly that many 'endings' of life will be thwarted! May the Breath of God's own Spirit be what brings that little one its very LIFE!
May God bring His Peace & Joy to any mother when she makes 'the right to Life' her first choice!
Just as God has planned........
Choosing JOY in the Giver of LIFE,
JESUS ONLY in 2010
Amen! That is a wonderfully inspired prayer Patrina!ReplyDelete
Thank you for the intercession for myself and also for all you are called to.
Bless your heart!
appreciate your visits and the comments you leave ... always uplifting and encouragingReplyDelete
What a special comment you left on my blog today! Wow! I had goose bumps at all the similarities you spoke about between us but the one thing that the Lord surprised me with was reading what you said about a prayer life! In these last three + years - God has brought me to the place of dedicated prayer. I still struggle with it every day but am committed to prayer even if it's not easy.
I also was blessed about your comment about your own Mama's last words! Such a prophetic Word over your life and over mine. I believe in both cases that it was the LORD who spoke those words from our dying loved ones to our eager hearts! The other thing is that if I could say one special thing about my husband it would be that he was a wonderful Provider! So God put that Word on his lips - and as soon as I heard it I knew! Then God has expounded upon it ever since!
God is so awesome in His personal ways in communicating and communing with us. I am seeking and finding His tender HEART!
PS: I'd love to touch base with you via e-mail if you're open to sharing that. You can find mine on my profile. I have a network of prayer sisters from blogland and I'd love to include you in that.
A beautiful prayer of life, where there has been so much death and despair. I have a long story of redemption from a near abortion, but God!!! He saved me before it could happen and gave me my 36 year old son and his beautiful 2 children, making me the most blessed of women. My prayer is that the "pro-life" movement will ask of God to, download solutions from Heaven, that a woman would easily choose, over an abortion. Pro-live, Pro-solution church!ReplyDelete
Wow, awesome prayer. As the first child of my family. I have lost two siblings to untimely death. I remember at the death of the second, my mother screamed out loud in pain and asked God for such never to happen again. She beckoned on God to fight for her. Today, the rest of us are alive, heal and hearthy.ReplyDelete
Thanks for this prayer Patrina. You are awesome!
Many thanks, again, for the comments and encouragement on the MORE POWER blog. I don't know that anyone has ever told me that I inspired them to sing, but AMEN ! It's a glorious song with a glorious promise.....
I would like to stay in touch more often; Having a hard time finding your e-mail address.
Keep in touch and God Bless you for all you do !
