Prayer For Safe Delivery Of A Friend
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.
Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O' Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.
Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Lord please grant this woman the strength to deliver her baby and the perseverance to work through the pain.
Remember, O most gracious 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 by this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. Despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
Lord, please touch this sister and this baby with your divine, healing hand, along with the father and the entire family and friends. See that their every ill or pain be vanquished by your holy touch. Lead them through this and all events in life ever toward the eternal garden of peace. Cultivate ever in their hearts graces for faith, hope, love, and joy. Have mercy, Lord. Our Lady, angels, and saints, pray with us. Amen.
Send your angels to keep guard as labour begins, Lord comfort and protect us all.
Surround us with your hope and goodness.
Hold us through each wave of delivery.
Give to us a perfect life.
Come hold us safely within your promises, now and forever.
You have created in me new life, a little baby, unique and perfect and so full of joy! Each time I feel this little one with me I am more excited! I feel such wonder and such blessings.
I ask for your Almighty hand to hold and keep us as we carry this precious gift. I trust in your care and protection and look forwards to watching this little person grow more on earth.
May you watch my sleep as I carry this baby.
May your hand be upon this little life as it develops in my womb.
May you fill our hearts with joy, and our bodies with peace.
May we feel you so close to us as we sense your amazing creativity at work.
We rest in you.
