All loving God,
you created the human family
as a reflection of your own divine life
so that your creation
might share in your happiness.
Hear our prayer
for your daughter
who awaits the birth of her child.
She has cooperated with you in giving life.
Assist her now as she prepares to give birth
to the child in her womb.
be her guide and support,
calming her fears and strengthening her love.
May your daughter be filled with your peace and blessing
so that she may bring her child into this world
safely and in good
health to the praise and
glory of your name.
