THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS,
MOTHERS, BEFORE AND AFTER THE BIRTH
OF A CHILD.
BY THE COMPILER OF “HEART PRAYERS."
6, PATERNOSTER ROW.
WONDERFUL as is the natural courage of women in the anticipation, as well as in the actual endurance, of childbirth, it still requires supernatural support. The gift of nature needs to be sanctified by the gifts of grace, in order that it may be acceptably offered to God in Christ. Again, the thankfulness, upon, and after, the birth of a child, which is so beautiful a feature of a mother's character, in like manner, requires to be supported and sanctified.
Her duties and shortcomings, too, present themselves to her with special clearness at such a time.
This little book is designed by the authoress to offer some simple devotional help to mothers at these critical periods of their lives.
May God bless it to their continuance “ in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.”
