Lord, I thank you for the journey I made in the womb.
I thank you for my mother,
Who carried and nourished me during that journey.
I thank you for all those who eagerly anticipated my birth,
Prepared for it,
And prayed for me.
And today, as I consider the wonder of life in the womb,
I too pray for all those still making those journey.
I pray for their families, to whom you have entrusted them,
That they may have confidence in Your grace
For them to be good parents and family members.
Bless all unborn children.
Help us to get to know them better
And always welcome them warmly.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
