My Prayer to God: August 3, 2013

Dear God,

I need Your mercy. Yes, thank You for Your mercy, but I realize how much I need it. I need it more than ever. Why is it that I didn’t realize earlier how much I needed Your mercy. How much I need Your help? Its as if I forgot how dependent I am on You. Please be with me God. Please bless me and have mercy upon me. Please provide and protect my family. Please help me in every way.

Yesterday Nastia was vomiting. We were worried. We were scared. We didn’t know what was happening. She wasn’t feeling good and she is 39 weeks pregnant. This wasn’t a good sign. However, I believe You were with us. Everything was okay. Thank You. Thank You for answering my prayer. Thank You for having Your hand upon Nastia. Please make her perfectly healthy and help her regain her strength. She will need it when she gives birth. Please be with her. Get here through all the pain. Give her the strength she needs to push the baby out. Please help her God. We both don’t want to get an epideral shot. However, we don’t know what will happen. We both don’t want to get a C-section, but we don’t know what will happen. All we can do is hope and pray to You. Please be with us and with our baby. Please, no C-section, and please no epideral. Help Nastia not to tear while she births, and also help her from becoming completely exhausted. I want my wife to be strong, but she will only be strong if You want it. Please find it in Your will to make the birth a very successful one.

In this time, help me and my wife walk in the spirit. I want us to give birth while we are walking on Your path. I don’t want to follow the ways of the flesh, especially when we start a family together. I want to be firmly rooted in You no matter what happens.

Prepare me O God, both mentally and physically for what will happen in the future. May I have the wisdom and the strength to do what is right. May I be strong in supporting the household with both finances and chores, and may I be wise to say the right words to my wife, and to do the right things. I don’t know how our health insurance will look, but I give it to Your hands. I don’t know how my job will be like, will it be very difficult, will i fail, etc… I don’t know. I give it all up to You. Please bless me in my work, bless me with my students, guide me along this path never to forget that there are much more important things to do in life. Help me focus on You.

Bless my family, my brothers and sisters, give me love to everyone. Bless my neighbors and my friends, give me love to them. I love You God. I want to get closer to You. Please help me and guide me. Strengthen me in this way. May I live for You.

In Your name,
