HARMONIOUS CHILDBIRTH THROUGH PRAYER

When I became pregnant with our second child, my husband and I were excited. However, a few weeks into the pregnancy, it appeared I might have a miscarriage. As a student of Christian Science I had been supporting the pregnancy with prayer (as I was accustomed to doing). But because I had miscarried some months earlier, the fear was aggressive. I immediately called a Christian Science practitioner to help pray for me. After we spoke, I opened my notebook (I kept one filled with ideas and inspiration to aid me) and I homed in on the poem, "Mother's Evening Prayer," by Mary Baker Eddy. Its first verse reads:

O gentle presence, peace and joy andpower;O Life divine, that owns each waitinghour,Thou Love that guards the nestling'sfaltering flight!Keep Thou my child on upward wingtonight. (Poems, p. 4)
