Default Prayer for a mother and unborn child

Please say a prayer for a friend of my sister who just found out after her ultra sound that her child has a better than 50% chance of having major health issues. Including heart problems and possibility of Down Syndrome.
Her name is Miranda and your prayers are greatly appreciated. Thank you all !

In St. Dominic,
James



PRAYER TO SAINT GERARD MAJELLA
(1725 - 1755)

Almighty and loving Father, I thank you for giving St. Gerard to us
as a most appealing model and powerful friend.
By his example, he showed us how to love and trust You.
You have showered many blessings on those who call upon him.
For Your greater glory and my welfare,
please grant me the favours which I ask in his name.
(Mention your needs here...)
And you, my powerful patron, intercede for me before the throne of God.
Draw near to that throne and do not leave it until you have been heard.
O good saint, to you I address my fervent prayers; graciously accept them
and let me experience in some way the effects of your powerful intercession. Amen.

O Great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, perfect imitator of your meek and humble Savior, and devoted Child of the Mother of God: enkindle within Miranda's heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity which glowed in your heart and made you an angel of love. O glorious Saint Gerard, because when falsely accused of crime, you did bear, like your Divine master, without murmur or complaint, the calumnies of wicked men, you have been raised up by God as the Patron and Protector of expectant mothers. Preserve Miranda from danger and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth, and shield the child which she now carries, that it may see the light of day and receive the lustral waters of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Precious Offering
O Mary, Mother of Sorrows, I beseech thee, by the inexpressible tortures thou didst endure at the death of thy Son, offer to the Eternal Father, in my stead, thy beloved Son all covered with Blood and Wounds, for the grace of (mention your intention). Amen.

MEMORARE OF OUR LADY
Remember O Most Gracious Virgin Mary
That never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection
Implored thy help, or sought thy intercession was left unaided
Inspired by this confidence, I fly to thee
O Virgin of Virgins, my mother
To thee do I come, before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful
O Mother of the Word Incarnate
Despise not my petitions
But in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.

Sub Tuum Praesidium
We fly to thy patronage, O Holy Mother of God
Despise not our petitions in our necessities
But deliver us always from all dangers
O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen

Lord, You formed this baby perfectly. Please watch over Miranda and her unborn child, and if it is your will that the baby have health problems, guide the doctors to help him, and the parents to raise him and love him.

St. Gerard, Pray for us.

St. Ulric of Augsburg, Pray for us.

St. Brigid of Ireland, Pray for us.

St. Nicholas of Tolentino, Pray for us.

St. Philomena, PRAY FOR US!
