This reflection is taken from my book Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man.” (Genesis 4:1)
Reflection: This was the declaration of the first woman upon becoming the first mother. The help of the Lord is essential, for he alone has dominion over human life and is its origin. Parents cooperate with God in bringing forth life, but are not its owners or ultimate source. Because this whole process is under God’s dominion, we are not permitted to interrupt it.
Prayer: Lord, I pray today for all parents. May they recognize the awesome privilege they have to cooperate with you in bringing forth new life. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
