Prayers for adoption


#1

Please pray

I just got a call from a Sister (religious, not MY sister) in Indiana who has a mother with her who is 4 months pregnant and was considering abortion. She is now considering adoption and the Sister (religious, not HER sister) wanted to know if we were interested in adopting a black baby (which we are).

The Sister found out about us through mutual acquaintances and wanted to know if we were willing to “interface” with the mother.

Pray that God will intercede in the heart of this mother.

Thanks be to God and to our Holy Mother on this Feast of the Immaculate Conception!

Praying hard.

Praying that the adoption goes through ...

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.

Praying the adoption goes successfully and your prayers are answered.God bless you

Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, we turn to you, O Virgins of virgins, our Mother. To you we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, do not despise our petitions, but in your mercy hear us and answer us. Amen.

Prayer for Faith
Lord, I believe:
I wish to believe in Thee.
Lord, let my faith be full and unreserved,
and let it penetrate my thought,
my way of judging Divine things and human things.
Lord, let my faith be joyful
and give peace and gladness to my spirit,
and dispose it for prayer with God
and conversation with men,
so that the inner bliss of its fortunate possession
may shine forth in sacred and secular conversation
Lord, let my faith be humble and not presume
to be based on the experience of my thought and of my
feeling;
but let it surrender to the testimony of the Holy Spirit,
and not have any better guarantee than in docility to
Tradition
and to the authority of the magisterium of the Holy Church.
Amen

I have always prayed for the adoption into appropriate homes for all children who are not wanted or cared for by their natural parents.

I was adopted at the age of 3 and it has been the greatest blessing of my life.

Feel free to send me a message if you want my opinions or just need an extended support system.

I will pray that the birth mother makes the most appropriate decision.

Remember, if she doesn’t decide to allow you the priviledge of adopting her child, God might have a bigger plan for you, whether it be a different child or the opportunity to do other services for God.

Lord, please move the heart of this baby’s mother to agree to give her baby to this loving couple interested in adopting. Help the interfacing period be prosperous for all involved. St. Gerard, patron of the unborn, please intercede that this child will be protected and given as a gift from the Lord to this good and eager couple. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

My 3 siblings and I were all adopted (at different times, from different families) and I know what a blessing good adoptive parents are.

I will keep you, the birth mother, and that little one in my prayers.

A Novena Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Sacred Heart of Jesus, we know that there is but one thing impossible to You: to be without pity for those who are in suffering or distress. Look down on us, we beg of You and grant us the grace which we humbly and earnestly implore, through the Immaculate Heart of Your most sorrowful Mother to whom You confided us as her children, and whose prayers are all powerful with You. Amen.

The Lord has a divine plan for each one of us. Our lives are precious in the eyes of God. He will protect us and help us and love us.

God, our Creator, by Your love the world is filled with life, through Your generosity one generation gives life to another, and so are Your wonders told and Your praises sung.

We look to You in our love and in our need: may it be Your will that we adopt a child to share our home and faith.

Loving God, be close to us as we pray to love and do Your will. You are our God, nourishing us forever and ever. Amen.
