“Miracle of Birth to First 100 Months of Life Musical Slideshow!

Ramesh C. Reddy,
Contributing Editors

"The Lord said to me, "I knew you before you were formed within your mother's womb; before you were born I sanctified you and appointed you as my spokesman to the world." (Jeremiah 1:15, TLB)

Miracle of Birth to 100 months of Life is a project of Pittsburgh Standard Ministries to engage the culture through biblical influence about the value of life.

 As our children Esther and Evangeline celebrated their 100 days of school in February, we decided to do a ministry project called 'Miracle of Birth to 100 months of Life'. In this project the prayer of Psalm 139 has been paramount in Esther's life from the day of conception to each month 100 months and beyond. You will see the families and friends that impacted Esther and those that Esther impacted. More than that, this is also about Esther's desire to protect the unborn being a voice for them so they can experience their own 100 months of life and beyond.

Esther cannot remain speechless as she sings an original song written by me called Unborn and other cover songs to influence. My wife has also sung songs to influence.

We hope this message and the accompanying musical slideshow will let every mother contemplating abortion to know the value of a precious life so they can say no to abortion.

It breaks my heart when so many women want to be mothers, they cannot due to barrenness, miscarriages, still-birth, etc while many women who have been blessed to conceive abort their children for many different reasons.

Finally, there are many women who endure through the hardship of pregnancy to give birth to beautiful babies. My wife is one of those women.

As our family thought about the March for Life 2021 in the hopes of overturning the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 which has caused the slaughter of more than 68 million babies, I could not help wonder what a baby given birth would look like in the first 100 months of their life and beyond by the Lord's grace and mercy.

When the doctor checked for our baby's heartbeat, there was a faint heartbeat. So they decided to do an emergency C-section for my precious wife Chandraleela. When they opened her up, they saw the umbilical cord wrapped around our baby's neck. That's why our baby barely had a heartbeat.

With our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ's grace and mercy through the prayers of families and friends, our baby survived even though the baby's APGAR score was very low, weight was less than 6 lbs, and she had jaundice.

My youngest brother Rohit decided to call her Esther. We went with that name because we believed Esther was born for such a time as this reminding us about the story of Queen Esther in the Holy Bible.

"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit them together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! It is amazing to think about. Your workmanship is marvelous—and how well I know it. You were there while I was being formed in utter seclusion! You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book! How precious it is, Lord, to realize that you are thinking about me constantly! I can’t even count how many times a day your thoughts turn toward me. And when I waken in the morning, you are still thinking of me!" (Psalm 139:13-18, TLB)

"Instead, we will lovingly follow the truth at all times--speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly--and so become more and more in every way like Christ who is the Head of his body, the Church. Under His direction, the whole body is fitted together perfectly, and each part in its own special way helps the other parts, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. (Ephesians 4:15-16, TLB)
