Try these awesome and powerful bible verses to survive labor. They provide a sense of comfort and safety unlike anything else.
During the last trimester of my second pregnancy, I decided a list of bible verses to survive labor was something I did not want to deliver my baby without.
While having my first baby, I remember asking my mom to bring her bible and my sister would read here and there whenever I could find a comfortable position for a short period of time. I think she read mostly from Psalms since I did not have anything specific in mind and wasn’t really even listening but just letting the word of God sooth me as much as possible.
This time I knew I needed specific verses to lean on and pull me through the excruciating hours of natural labor pains.
With most of my lists of verses I like to add my own comments and interpretations but with this specific list of verses I think it’s more important for a laboring mother to take her own peace and comfort in God’s words instead of someone else pointing it out.
