A believing woman knows well that without God's help she can not cope. Prayer does not leave her neither in the days of preparation for conception, nor during pregnancy, nor during childbirth. Many may be challenged: but how to pray at birth for a woman giving birth? After all, you need to think about fights, attempts & hellip; Holy fathers teach that a person should pray every free minute. This applies to the woman in labor during labor. Reading prayer calms, and its power invisibly helps at the most difficult moment.
You have to prepare for birth not only physically and mentally, but also spiritually. What does it mean? A pregnant woman must visit the temple before the birth, be in the service, confess and receive the Holy Mysteries. Regardless of how you "wear" your baby, childbirth can be unpredictable. And not always doctors can influence the outcome of delivery. God is merciful and all-powerful only.
A few centuries ago, the mother was unable to rely on anyone except God. The midwife midwives did not start the pregnant woman without praying. In the corner before the icons burned a lamp, and all loved ones sincerely prayed. Today, people rely heavily on doctors, and only in extreme cases they recall prayer. Few people now believe in miracles. But they happen. According to our faith, it will be for us. There are many cases when prayer during childbirth performed miracles: severe labor pains subsided, who could not be relieved of the burden, were allowed, and even bleeding in childbirth stopped.
Whom to pray to?
For a long time, from generation to generation, a tradition is handed over at birth to pray before the icons of the Mother of God "In the Births of the Assistant", "Infant Infant," "Theodore", "Healer", "Skoroposlushnitsa" & hellip; And this is not a complete list, because there are many miraculous icons in the Orthodox Church. But the main thing is not before which icon to bow in prayer, the main thing is sincere prayer. Pray for a woman in childbirth should be close people. It is good for these days to order a prayer service in the church, read the akathists of the Mother of God and other saints.
First of all in all afflictions we turn to the Theotokos. She hears us and helps. By its purity and holiness, the Blessed Virgin bore the Son of God painlessly. After experiencing human difficulties, she understands each of us.
When giving birth, they also pray to Saint-Great Martyr Catherine, Xenia of Petersburg, Anastasia Usozrasreshitelnitsa. With difficult births, pray to the righteous Joachim and Anna, the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Zechariah and Elizabeth, the parents of John the Forerunner. Both married couples were barren until they were old, but they did not lose faith and incessantly prayed until the Lord gave them a child.
Prayer to the Lord Jesus Christ
Lord Jesus Christ, our God, from the Ancestral Father, born to the Son before the age, and in the last days, by favor and cooperation Holy Spirit, I am born out of the Holy Virgin as a baby, and I will put it into the manger.
