Request for Prayers & Healing Energy

Blog Posted:11/18/2013 12:52:00 PM
It seems the time of year and the worry's of the world are all hitting at once please add my sister Miriam to your prayers. She is so excited about having a baby & she was due in the winter. She has just gone into premature labor, please pray everything turns out well for her.

Below is a Jewish prayer for the Safe Delivery of Mother & Child

"May it be your will, Adonai my God and God of my ancestors, that you will ease the pains of pregnancy for me, that You will increase my strength and the strength of my baby.  When my time to give birth arrives, may I give birth easily.  May the pain of childbirth fulfill my transition into motherhood.  May the baby go out into the air of the world easily, without harm.  May the baby be born with good fortune into life, peace, health, comfort and honor.  May my child find grace in Your eyes and in the eyes of all your creations.  May this child's life fulfill the verse: "God sets the childless woman among her household as a happy mother of children. Hallelujah."  May my husband and I raise this child to serve You.  May we merit to teach this child your holy Torah, to have peace and comfort, honor and rest.  Guard us, my baby and me, that we will not come to harm.  May You strengthen my courage, my strength, and my might, as it says: "My Lord, my life-breath is revived. You have restored me to health and revived me." Amen."

I love you sis!
