I would like to leave a testimony about blessing children in the womb. I recently gave birth to our 4th child. Instead of a traditional baby shower, I asked the women at our church to gather for a time of blessing the child and the upcoming birth.
Instead of the typical games, we had an amazing time of prayer. The women prayed over him, laid hands on him, asked the holy spirit to fill him even while in the womb, and gave wonderful words about his life to be and for the birth to come.
The entire day of his birth was filled with peace. He is the most peaceful child, he is so content and well mannered. It is so wonderful. Even the doctor commented on how peaceful my room felt and people are always commenting on how peaceful he is.
What is so significant about this is that I had post traumatic stress and depression after the traumatic birth of my first child. My eldest, and our set of twins were not easy babies ( birth trauma, colic, prematurity,,,,). All of my children were in the NICU for a week to 10 days after birth for various reasons. This is the only child we have brought home with us. I was very fearful with both births and suffered physically. From our previous experiences, having another child was a huge step of faith for me. Look what God did...He completely delivered me from the spirit of fear, he gave me peace that passes all understanding, the peace poured out and over flowed onto the people who were there. He is the first child I have brought home with me and physically this has been my easiest recovery. The whole experience gave me more confidence as a mother and continued to heal past hurts. Our child continues to be happy and healthy. There has been no stress in our house with adding another child. Blessing them in the womb is a great way to start out!!
