How to Pray in Pregnancy
from making your usual long mental prayer,
make your prayer short and fervent.
Make up for the loss by
frequently lifting your heart to God;
often read from some good spiritual book,
but only a little at a time;
when you go for a walk,
often turn your thoughts to God.
Pray often and briefly;
offer your listlessness and weariness
to our crucified Lord.'
St. Francis de Sales
