Prayers for a Healthy Pregnancy

Prayers can often lift our spirits when the going gets tough. And that certainly involves pregnancy.

Pregnancy can be scary and fulfilling at the same time, but sometimes you just need that extra something to help you get through.

So whether you're an expecting mother or one of your loved ones is about to become a momma, then you need to recite these prayers for a healthy pregnancy.

Prayer for Expecting Mothers

"God is the giver of life. Life is not the result of chance. It is not an accident or fluke. Life comes about because God gives. He grants life to each baby before birth. Your baby has been filled with his life."

Prayer for Safe Delivery During Labor

"O great Saint Gerard, beloved servant of Jesus Christ, perfect imitator of your meek and humble Savior, and devoted child of Mother of God, enkindle within my heart one spark of that heavenly fire of charity which glowed in your heart and made you an angel of love. O glorious Saint Gerard, because when falsely accused of crime, you did bear, like your Divine Master, without murmur or complaint, the calumnies of wicked men, you have been raised up by God as the patron and protector of expectant mothers. Preserve me from danger and from the excessive pains accompanying childbirth, and shield the child which I now carry, that it may see the light of day and receive the purifying and life-giving waters of baptism through Jesus Christ our Lord. "

Prayer for Healthy Pregnancy

"We ask you, Father, in Jesus' name, to hedge our little baby about with Your mighty protection. Watch over this little one each day as You intricately create him/her in the hidden sanctuary of the womb. We ask for Your divine health and that you will sustain me in good health and vitality throughout this whole pregnancy."

Prayer for Friends Who Are Pregnant

"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 rerst in you. Amen."

Prayer for a Safe Pregnancy

"Send your angels to keep guard as labor 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 to hold us safely within your promises, now and forever. Amen."
