Prayer for an unborn child
Humble Mary of Nazareth, You were chosen by God to bear within you our world’s greatest gift. I come to you now, on behalf of (name/s) who prays for the health and safety of the child that God has graced her to conceive. I ask for your intercession in guarding this life that God has created, and protect the mother God has chosen for this child. Let your gentle hands assist in her delivery so that this baby will know good health and lasting happiness. May her child be favoured with the grace of Holy Baptism, and grow to love Our Lord Jesus Christ above all else in the world.
