Prayer for the middle of pregnancy

Brooke has a very eloquent prayer for the end of pregnancy on her blog. I'm not as far along, but I thought I'd follow suit. Some of these are directly from her thoughts, some are mine. You can read her blog to see which are which because I'm too tired to differentiate.

I have 16 weeks left, so this is a prayer to help me survive the weeks to come.


Please bless me to find a comfortable sleep position that doesn't strain my back, worsen my congestion, or wake up my hubby.

Please help me to have something left that still fits that is not considered a mu mu.

Please let my house remain standing while I can hardly do anything to improve the appearance!

Please forgive me for yelling at my kids over stupid things. Thanks you for increasing my heart rate when I do to remind me to calm down.

Please forgive me for sneaking an extra donut every now and then. I'll try to do better.

Thank you for the hours I have spent in the rocking chair reading for relaxation.

Please make it so there is no reason for me to pick up anything off the floor, or get up off the floor for any reason.

(One of Brooke's that I wish I could use) Please forgive me for sneaking home from church and napping the second two hours while the kids and husband gain spiritual guidance.
Please forgive me for coveting Brooke's nap.

Bless me to drink more water and less diet coke.

Please help me to find a name for this child.

Finally, bless me to develop the nesting instinct so I can find the will to dig out what's left of the baby clothes, breast pump, and crib bedding.

amen.

Good luck! The last month or so of my pregnancy with Jason I slept on the couch half way sitting up with a few pillows behind me, it was the only way I could sleep without too much discomfort. Hang in there...if you need help with names let me know!
