Bible Verses for Labor & Delivery

Just wanted to post a list of verses to meditate on during labor & delivery. I gathered it from several other sources for my own labor & delivery. I hope it helps you!

The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms. Deut 33:27

Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever. Psalm 23

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace. Psalm 29:11

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Prov 3:5

He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40:11

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. John 14:27

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” Lam 3:22-24

Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Psalm 62:8

Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”   The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot. The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. I bless the LORD who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I have set the LORD always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices; my flesh also dwells secure. For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol, or let your holy one see corruption. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16

“And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you." Psalm 39:7
