Lord Jesus Christ, your Mother, Mary, gave herself in order to bring you into a suffering world.Â Your own sacrifice proves that suffering can be made holy.Â In my womb is a sign of great hope.Â I joyfully accept my discomforts, Lord, for the sake of that hope. I offer them to the Father in your name.Â Amen. Mother Mary, pray for me. Amen.
During late pregnancy:
Dear Father in heaven, I love my baby, and I look forward to his/her happy birthday. Grant me peace of mind.Â Grant me the faith, hope, and endurance that belong to true love.Â I look forward with confidence.Â I trust in your divine help as I prepare to give birth to your new creation.Â Please listen to Mary, the Mother of Jesus, as she prays for me to have a safe delivery and a healthy baby.Â Through Jesus Christ, Mary’s Baby born in Bethlehem.Â Amen.
