Prayer for our own family
Holy Father and the Ever Blessed Mother,
You know that I have been married 3 1/2 years and that we have been trying to conceive all this time. One round of in vitro at 39 did not work and now I am 40.
The odds are more grim but I know through Christ all things are possible. I thank you for this last chance we have to do in vitro again and I pray from the very depths of my soul dear God that you will grace me with my deepest, lifelong heart's desire; to have my own children with my husband.
I pray for Maris and Marcus and I beseech you to gift us with lives spent serving You with faith and happiness and with the joy of creating a life out of our union which was started in church.
Please clear my heart, mind, body, and thoughts of any negativity and I pledge these children will grow to know, love, and serve You with a gladness of heart.
Lord, hear my prayer!
I ask these things in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
