Prayer for safe delivery of my daughter

Hi all,

As has been my tradition for the last 5, I post here asking for your kind prayers for my wife as she delivers our sixth child (second daughter). She is due at the end of August.

I feel God’s graces working powerfully around us in preparation. Please pray that all goes well and God will allow this daughter of mine to enter into this world is a family united in joy and in the peace of Christ.

I humbly ask you also for prayers for myself. That God would give me peace and serenity knowing that all things are in his hands and nothing happens without his consent.

Thank you all,
God bless,
Ut

[INDENT][INDENT]Prayer for Expectant Mothers

All loving God,
you created the human family
as a reflection of your own divine life
so that your creation might share in your happiness.

Hear our prayer for your daughter
who awaits the birth of her child.
She has cooperated with you in giving life.
Assist her now as she prepares to give birth
to the child in her womb.
May Mary be her guide and support,
calming her fears and strengthening her love.

May your daughter be filled with your peace and blessing
so that she may bring her child into this world
safely and in good health to the praise and
glory of your name.

Amen.

My Jesus, I offer this intention to Your Most Sacred Heart

Our father who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done
On earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
Forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
Amen

Eternal God in whom mercy is endless
And treasury of compassion inexhaustible
Look kindly upon us and increase Your mercy in us
so that in difficult moments, we may not despair
Nor become despondent
But with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy will
Which is love and mercy itself
Amen

Her spirits are up and we are looking forward to the new addition to our family. :slight_smile:
