#150 - My Mother Died Giving Birth to Me
Volume 1 - Prayers to Love God

Dear Father, my mother died giving birth to me. She made the ultimate sacrifice a mother can make for her child. Father, I wonder how she felt about it. Did she know she was going to die during her pregnancy and labor? Was she willing to sacrifice her life on my behalf? Did she cherish me that much? Did she make sure I would be taken care of? Did she pray for me before she died? Did she get a chance to see me in the womb and hear my heartbeat through medical technology? Did it make her smile? Did it make her cry? Father, did she resent me at all? Did she not want to give up her life for me? I don't want to go there. I want to think of her as a good mother who gave up her life for her child. Father, sometimes I feel guilty about it. I caused my mother's death. However, I didn't. I didn't take any action to cause her to die. What happened to her is because of the brokenness of this world. I missed out on all the mother-child moments of my childhood. Father, I want to honor her with my life. May I become a man or woman of God who pleases You. She may one day know that the child she never knew became a servant of almighty God. May she be so proud. Amen.
