On March 20, 2020, as I was spending time with God, praying against the COVID-19 virus that was overtaking the world and now our country, I felt led to start praying for the unborn babies and the mamas who carried them. I put on my Facebook page that I was doing this, and if they knew anyone who was pregnant let me know. Well, that list has now grown to 105 babies! Eleven have been born during this time and they are all healthy. No virus!
But besides these eleven miracles, here is what else is happening. (God does not waste an opportunity!)
*“Warrior Women” are uniting to pray for these babies.
*It’s bringing us together, creating a connection between us.
*We are focusing on others, not on the virus, and on something positive, rather than negative.
*We are being reminded daily that there are “others” out there and we are not alone.
*It is giving us hope, and it is wonderful to focus on new life.
*And it is helping our own spirit to pray for someone else, to have a purpose.
I know that even in the best of circumstances sometimes babies are born with problems. But by faith I am asking God that these will be healthy, that they will be protected from the virus, that their mamas will feel peace and calm, that all of their physical needs will be met, and that there will be joy in the home and family.
I am not telling this story to bring any notice to myself. I am truly honored to do this. And thankful I have the time, as I am sequestered at home these weeks.
I’m sharing this because you may want to do the same thing. And as usual, God intended this prayer focus for more than what I thought it would be. That’s God’s economy.
If you do start a prayer focus like this, PLEASE let me know.
I pray that you are well, and the ones you love are safe and well also. Let’s unite in praying for our country and world.
Many blessings and hugs,
