A Prayer for Birth Mothers

Dear Jesus,

Thank you for the beautiful mothers who bring love into the world with the birth of their children. We ask that You shower down Your protection and blessings on all birth mothers, those women whose wombs bore a child who would one day be raised by another. We pray for women who chose adoption, entrusting their own flesh to another’s arms. We pray for women who had no choice, but who were unable to parent because of their circumstances.

May the angels in Heaven protect her.
