Beloved Creator, heal me of any trauma that may have occurred at birth. Let me never forget that you were present at my birth, encouraging me, nudging me, drawing me out of the womb, feeling the birth pains with me. May this birth be a symbol of my first act of obedience. With immense gratitude I look upon this moment and say "Yes" to life. Amen.
