Thanks to the Lord

Thanks to the Lord

This pregnancy made my faith so much stronger than ever. I am turning 30 in June. As I always wish, I wanted to have a baby. I went to see the doctor and asked for a pill but my request was rejected.The lady doctor said I’m still young to turn to fertility pills. Disappointed, I went home and told the news to Mau. We have been trying for the last year. An idea came to me- maybe I am barren. I almost accepted the fact that I am. When I meet up with my friends ’round here, jealousy crawls in seeing them with prams and their little ones. Every night before I lay down my bed, I ask God, am I not worthy enough or maybe good enough to become a mother? What else should I do? One night, I remember the prayer book sitting on my bedside table. I flicked through the pages and there I found this prayer: Prayer for Motherhood O good St Gerard, powerful intercessor before God and wonder worker of our day, I call upon thee and seek thy aid. Thou who on earth didst always fulfill God’s designs, help me do the holy will of God. Beseech God the Master of Life, from whom all paternity proceedeth, to render me fruitful in offspring, that I may raise up children to God in this life and heirs to the Kingdom of His glory in the world to come.Amen. I recited that prayer, once or twice I cannot remember. But for some desperate reason I did. From the heart, I asked. All I needed at that time was ask. I kept questioning him why it hasn’t happened yet – i didn’t ask. Not long after, maybe after a couple of weeks or so, it was another answered prayer. I fell pregnant. I forgot about the prayer already. I was overwhelmed with joy. One quiet night, I lay down to sleep, I cannot wipe off the smile on my face, I saw this tiny brown powerful book. It occurred to me. Tears fell and in that moment, I gave back all the glory and thanks to Him. He is so wonderful that all He wanted me to do was ask. Simple isn’t it? A child within a woman’s body is the most amazing thing for me that ever exist in this whole universe. Pregnancy is another example of how beautiful and loving our God Almighty is. I thank Him, with all my heart, mind and soul for entrusting me the most fulfilling job in the world, that is being a future mother to this little creature living inside me. This is another exciting journey I will forever be thankful and grateful for =)
