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.
Deo gratias! Thanks be to God for the safe deliveries for these mothers and their babies!
