Lord, when we are first able to hear and distinguish sounds,
We are still residing in the womb.
Your Word speaks to us about the importance of ears that hear,
And you give us the privilege in this life of listening to
The proclamation of your Gospel.
The children in the womb are your future disciples,
And you prepare from all eternity the opportunity
For them to say the “Yes” of Faith.
Bless the development of every child.
Strengthen their hearing,
So that at the appointed time,
They may hear the greatest news of human history:
That they have a Savior,
Who died and rose for them,
And in whom they find eternal life,
And his name is Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
