Pregnancy is something that is always celebrated by women and communities in general. The birth of a baby is always welcomed with so much happiness and celebrations. Some centuries back, some communities would banish women who were barren. Women who conceive twins see this as two blessings or even a miracle, but in some communities, it is a taboo. Women use several methods when trying to conceive. Some go and enroll in medical trials that do not work and just make them spend a lot of money. There are those who even go to the extent of believing in witchcraft and use it to try to conceive. The Catholic Church frowns upon this. The most encouraged method to induce pregnancy by the Catholic Church is conception through prayers. Some people believe in the power of prayer and say that it can help in conception. However, most people do not know how to pray so that they can conceive. Here are 10 of the most used prayers that you can use when you want to conceive:

6. A Prayer to Be Blessed With a Baby
GUNANYA AIR SUCI . Sejak awal Gereja satu, kudus, katolik, dan apostolik (nama tenarnya “Gereja Katolik”), pemakaian air dalam ibadat sudah ada. Para Bapa Gereja kerap menyebut itu. Contoh, Eusebius menulis, pada tahun 300-an Masehi ada gereja di Tirus yang memiliki air mancur di pintu masuk. Orang beriman membasuh diri atau tangan sebelum masuk gereja. . Air amat bermakna dalam iman Katolik. Pada awal dunia ada air (Kej. 1:1-2). Penyelamatan umat Allah lewat air (Laut Merah). Pertobatan dilambangkan dengan pembaptisan dengan air (oleh Yohanes Pembaptis). Yesus mengajarkan, untuk masuk Kerajaan Allah, orang harus dilahirkan dari air dan Roh (Yoh. 3:5). Keselamatan digambarkan sebagai air yang mengalir dari takhta Allah dan takhta Anak Domba (Why. 22:1). . Karena aneka makna air yang serba kudus itu, Gereja Katolik memakai air dalam ibadat dan doa. Di pintu gereja ada air agar kita ingat akan baptisan kita, juga agar kita membersihkan diri jiwa dan raga sebelum masuk ruang kudus. Dengan membuat tanda salib dengan air, kita sadar bahwa Allah Tritunggal Mahakudus memberkati kita. . Air suci (yang sudah diberkati oleh imam) juga boleh disimpan secara pribadi. Untuk apa? Untuk menandai diri, memerciki diri, memerciki rumah atau benda. Semua itu mengingatkan kita akan baptisan, pembersihan, dan perlindungan dari si jahat. . Sumber: Rev. D. Y.
