Prayer for a Safe Delivery in the Month of the Precious Blood

Here is a beautiful prayer for an expectant mother, it is my favourite pregnancy prayer (it has been written in a way that someone is praying for the expectant mum, but I just change the wording here and there since it is being said by me.) It is from The Precious Blood & Mother manual pg: 150


Prayer for a Safe Delivery

Saint Elizabeth, through the great blessings you received from God at the birth of your son, Saint John, I beseech you to obtain for__(me)___ the grace of deeply understanding with joyful wonder the privilege of motherhood and of living each day in happy anticipation.

I ask this grace through the Precious Blood of Jesus, God’s Gift of Love to us.

Saint Anne, obtain for__(me)___ through your own blessed child, Mary ever Virgin, the grace that no accident may befall her (me) and that she (I) may deliver her (my) child safe and sound into the world.

I ask this grace through the Precious Blood of Jesus, God’s Gift of Love to us.

Mary, my Mother, I pray you to intercede before your Divine Son, Jesus, and obtain for__(me)___ the help and blessings of God so that she (I) may patiently endure with joyful expectation the pains of delivery and that her (my) child may receive the grace of Baptism.

I ask this grace through the Precious Blood of Jesus, God’s Gift of Love to us.

Amen.

Anne, Thank you for this perfect prayer! and for your lovely and inspirational websites. They are a gift.

My daughter is expecting her 3rd little one any time and has put me on the alert as I may be needed very soon. As I wait, your prayer is most welcome.
