Prayer for Expectant Mothers #2

O Good Saint Anne,
who had the incomparable privilege of bringing into the
world
Her who was to become the Mother of God,
I come to place myself
under your special care.

I confide myself to you,
together with the child I am carrying.
Thousands of children owe you,
Glorious Mother of Mary,
the life of the body and the grace of baptism.
Hence I wish, in my turn,
to place my whole confidence in you.
Make me keep in mind the precautions I need to take
so as not to endanger in any way the health,
good qualities or the eternal salvation
of the child whose very existence
God has placed in my care.

Obtain for me
the virtues you did teach Her who was to be the Mother of
God,
so that I may afterwards
instil and develop them
in the heart of my child.

O Good Saint Anne,
protect me today and forever.
I know that you will not refuse your intercession
to a mother who invokes you with confidence.

Amen
