Prayer of Expectant Parents
Lord, we lovingly pray for this sweet hope that Mom Geca is keeping in her womb. You have given us the immense gift of a little life and we humbly thank you for choosing us as instruments of your love. In this sweet waiting, help us to live in a constant attitude of self-surrender to your will. Grant us parental hearts that are pure, steadfast and generous. We hand over to you our own concerns; any anxious fears that may come, our own wishes for the little person conceived from our love. Grant that our baby may be born healthy in body and soul. Mother Mary, you have known the ineffable joy of a holy motherhood; give us a heart that can transmit an ardent, living faith. Sanctify our waiting, bless this joyful hope that is in us, grant that the fruit of our love may open out in virtue, always and forever.
