Prayer for an Expectant Mother

I pray you with love for this sweet hope that I hold in my womb;
I humbly thank you for choosing me as the instrument of your love. In this waiting, help me to live in continuous abandonment to your will;
grant me a pure, strong, generous heart. 

To you I offer the worries that already make me restless:
anxieties, fears, desires for the creature that I do not yet know. Let her be born healthy in the body, remove all physical harm from her
and every danger to the soul.

O Mary, you who know the ineffable joys of holy motherhood,
obtain for me a heart capable of transmitting a living and ardent faith,
sanctify my expectation, bless this happy hope of mine and my spouse.
