Prayers for a happy resolution for an expectant mother contemplating abortion or adoption


#1

A woman close to me is pregnant and though she was considering an abortion is now contemplating adoption instead. By good fortune, the people who were going to help her pay for the abortion did not have the funds to do so.

If you have time today please say a prayer that this mother does not opt to abort this precious little baby and that her heart will be open to adoption. My husband and I will be meeting with her today.

Thank you so much.

Praying that this mother sill choose life.

Praying…

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto 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.

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death.

Amen.

Angels please surround this little baby and protect his/her life. Please surround all the litle ones in danger of abortion and pray that they will be received in love, if not into their parents’ homes, then into other loving families.

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.

Blessed art thou among women.
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now.
and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Please continue your prayers for this situation. This mother’s condition is grave in that she has many pressures to choose death over life. To the best of my knowledge her child is still safe and growing strong in her womb.


#9

Continuing to pray for her and her child…

Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

I just thought I would update those of you who prayed for this intention. The mother chose life, and then she chose us, to parent her baby.

We were foster parents for her older daughter, and have cared for their family through love and other help since their family has been reunified 3 1/2 years go. When she gave birth, the woman I asked you all to pray for knew that she was going to make an adoption plan and said there was just no one else she would choose to raise her baby, now our baby.

Now pray for a speedy adoption process! :)

Here is a photo of our little Madeleine who is now 2 months old and has been in our home since she was 2 days old, (she came home on Good Friday).
