Pregnancy and childbirth are miraculous and significant times in a woman’s life. However, they can also be filled with anxiety, especially when a pregnancy goes beyond 40 weeks or when a woman’s water breaks but labor does not start. During these times, it is crucial to seek God’s guidance, peace, and intervention. A prayer for a pregnant woman who is past due or whose water has broken without labor starting invites God’s presence and reassures His control over the situation.

The Bible provides numerous assurances of God’s care and presence during times of uncertainty. In Psalm 46:1, it says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (ESV). This verse reminds us that God is always there to provide strength and support, especially in challenging times.

Isaiah 40:31 offers encouragement and hope: “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” (ESV). This verse reassures us that God gives us the strength to endure and overcome difficult situations.

Philippians 4:6-7 encourages us to bring our anxieties to God in prayer: “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (ESV). By entrusting our concerns to God, we can experience His peace and assurance.

Psalm 139:13-14 speaks of God’s intimate involvement in our creation: “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well” (ESV). This verse reminds us of God’s care and purpose for both the mother and the baby.
