Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Protect those who are with child; support those who are giving birth. It is You who bring infants from the confines of their mother's wombs and enlarge the human race by Your blessing. Be with all those who are in the pains of labor, O Lover and Giver of life, so that they are not oppressed with excessive pain. -- Prayer for those who are suffering, by Johann Gerhard, *Meditations on Divine Mercy* p. 149

Amen, says the husband of one of those who are with child... errrr. children.
