Somebody's Praying

Most of my friends and family know that pregnancy and I just don't go together really well.  Bo always tells me if I was one of his breeding cows, he would have got rid of me a long time ago.  Well thanks honey, I appreciate that.  But I understand...I'm horrible at being pregnant.  I am sick all the time.  I have trouble maneuvering with this little girl sitting on my sciatic nerve.  I am tired all the time.  I'm cranky...and so many other things.  I'm just not myself and it gets old after 6 long months. 

Through it all though, God has been blessing me with encouragement from friends and family.  Every week it seems someone sends me a little email or letter of encouragement.  Whether it's someone just saying, "Hey I'm praying for you!"  or "God put you on my heart this week."  or an actual snail mail card from someone who loves me.  I am just blessed.  We decided on a name for a girl a long time ago.  It was going to be Brody's name if he would have been a girl.  And that name is "Bella Faith" which means, beautiful faith.  I thought maybe that would mean that I would have this amazing faith through this pregnancy and that I would be calm and all my fears would just be gone.  Well, that is not true.  I feel like I've worried more through this pregnancy than any of the others. 

God keeps bringing me to tears over the fact that others are "praying me through."  It's not my amazing faith that has done it, but many others whose faith has not wavered throughout this time.  Sometimes its just my four year old son at the dinner table praying for mommy to feel better and for  Bella to grow big and strong like he is.  So I've dedicated the name of this baby to all of you who have prayed for this baby girl.  Your beautiful faith has gotten me through this far, and I'm believing that it will get me to the end.  Thank you friends and family.  I love you. 

This song is a an old one, but the words remind me how there are so many others who are standing in the gap for those who don't have the faith or the strength to pray.  Someone is praying them through.  You can listen on YouTube if you don't mind listening to some old-school christian music.  I cry every time.  copy and paste...

Somebody's Praying Me Through


Pressing over me like a big blue sky
I know someone has me on their heart tonight
That's why I know it's gonna be alright
'Cause somebody's praying me through
Somebody's praying me through

It may be my Mother, it might be my Dad
Or an old friend I've forgot I had
But whoever it is I'm so glad that
Somebody's praying me through
Somebody's praying me through

Through the tears, through the rain
Through the sorrow, through the pain
It keeps bringing me through
Over and over again

So when you're drowning in a sea of hurt
And it feels like life couldn't get any worse
There's a blessing waiting to push back the curse
'Cause, somebody's praying you through Oh…
Somebody's praying you through Oh…

Somebody… somebody is, Praying
Oh… Somebody is, Someone Somewhere

Someone got down on their knees and prayed for me
Somebody's, praying
Somebody's praying… you through
