Scripture: Isaiah 12:2-6 Be bold and ask God for what you need. Comment on this time of prayer in your journal.
I asked God for strength and power for giving birth. That I would have more than my own during that time. And I felt God hold me close, give me a hug, tell me that everything is going to be OK, much like a parent does. And I felt calmed, I felt at peace, I felt that everything would be OK one way or another.
God, thank you for the strength to face the challenge before me.
