The scriptures highlighted in her Instagram Story post featured words from John 15:5, Ephesians 6:10, and Genesis 1:26 – 27. Part of the snippet she shared addressed humans as God's image-bearers, who should frequently rely on him.

The sacred writing read: "However, I love you too much to withdraw the godlike privilege I bestowed on you as My image-bearer. Use your freedom wisely by relying on Me constantly. Thus, you enjoy My Presence and My Peace."

Kardashian seemed to imply that she could not have overcome her medical ordeal without divine intervention as seen in the empowering words from John 15:5. Part of the scripture stated: "If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me, you can do nothing."

Kardashian confessed that after welcoming three children without complications, "rushing into urgent fetal surgery" was a horrifying experience she was unprepared for.  “I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear,” the media personality admitted.

Fortunately, the "Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami" star was out of the woods, concluding that her "truest blessing" was leaving the hospital with her baby safe and sound in her stomach. Barker similarly celebrated the successful surgery on X, announcing the resumption of the Blink-182 band's tour.

The Drummer Sought Comfort In God Following His Family's Emergency

Before Kardashian revealed she had undergone fetal surgery, her husband raised concerns about their family's wellbeing with prayer room updates. On his Instagram Stories, the Blink-182 drummer shared several pictures taken from the holy venue.

These snaps, presumably taken before the "Meet the Barkers" star returned to the US, showed the outside and inside of the prayer room. There was a shot of a door with the praying symbol, a stained-glass window, and a blue banner with the words "Together We Pray."
