I just joined and am waiting for my 3rd baby. I am 42 and scared of health issues. Could I ask for prayers for health for this little person? Thank You!
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.
I will keep you and your family in my morning prayers.
Congratulations! I will keep you and your future bundle of joy in my prayers.
Heavenly Father, you create us in your own image and you desire that not even the least among us should perish. In your love for us, you entrusted your only Son to the holy Virgin Mary. Now, in your love, protect the unborn to whom you have given the gift of life. In Jesus name I pray… AMEN
Prayer to St. Gerard - Patron of Expectent Mothers
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 my 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 this mother 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. :signofcross:
Congratulations! And welcome to the forums! May you have a safe, healthy pregnancy and a happy, holy, healthy baby, through the intercession of Our Lady of La Leche, St. Gerard, and St. Philomena!
Praying for you to have the healthiest of babies. Went through this with my daughter in law who had 2 babies when in her late thirties. Both babies were very healthy and continue to be so today. GOOD LUCK and :blessyou:
