Pregnancy Prayer Journal
By far one of the best things I did while I was pregnant was keep a prayer journal during our pregnancy. I don't remember where I got the idea from, probably somewhere on Pinterest, but I'm so grateful I did because if it wasn't on paper I would have forgot so much of the journey. I journaled about the day we found out we were pregnant, our first ultrasound, and all of the fun milestones. Also, about the not so glamorous parts of being pregnant. At the end of my journals I wrote a prayer. I was reading back through it the other day and my heart was overflowing with gratitude. God answers our prayers and He is so faithful. I was really sick through out my pregnancy and a lot of my focus was on the physical aspect of getting through each day, so sometimes I missed the answered prayers. Looking back is such a sweet reminder of our Heavenly Fathers love and provision over our lives.
Here are a few of the prayers from my journal. I can't wait for Ella to be able to read these when she's older!
