— A Prayer for Pregnancy —
“Master, Lord Jesus Christ our God, Source of life and immortality, we thank Thee, that Thou hast enabled us in wedlock to become partakers of Thy blessing and gift, for Thou hast said, O Master, “Grow and multiply and you will fill the earth.” We thank Thee and pray: bless this fruit of our body which Thou hast granted us, show Thy mercy upon it and enliven it with Thy Holy Spirit. Make its body to grow in health and without flaw and grant it well-formed members. Sanctify its body, mind, heart and inward parts. Grant this infant wisdom and fear of Thee; appoint a faithful guardian Angel for his soul and body. Cover, protect, strengthen and preserve the child in our womb until the very hour when Thou didst command him to be born. But do not conceal him in his mother’s womb, for Thy hands have prepared him. Thou gavest him life and breath. O Lord Jesus Christ, we entrust our child into Thine all-powerful hands. Place the right hand of Thy grace upon him, sanctify him with Thy Holy Spirit and renew him for eternal life, that he may be a partaker of Thy Kingdom. Amen.”
This Orthodox Christian prayer celebrates the incredible gift of new life and provides powerful words to guide parents in trusting God for their baby’s continued life and health. I wish I had had something like this when I was pregnant, and so this print came to be! I designed the floral illustration with Poppies, Dandelion, and Baby’s Breath — dreamy, bright, colorful, and delicate for a sacred and special season.
A beautiful and unique gift for a pregnant mama! This print is easy to laminate and place on an icon corner or refrigerator or to frame elsewhere.
This print is available in 8×10 only because of the large amount of text.
All prints are hand-sketched, painted in watercolor, and lettered before being digitized and sent to a local printer to be printed on card stock for a clean and sturdy finish.
Shipping: All prints are packed with a backing board and sealed in protective closure bags, keeping the print free from sticking to any adhesive or getting bent on the way from our home to yours. Shipped by USPS.
