My wife and I have been married for some time now and have been trying to have a child. We got married a bit older than most and so we are feeling the pressure of trying to have kids while we still can and this has only made the situation more stressful and anxiety-provoking. I was very happy to learn recently that she was pregnant, but after only a couple of days her pregnancy symptoms went away and now we are concerned that she may have had a miscarriage. As you can imagine the emotions are running high, and we can only wait to see her doctor to find out more, which might not happen for several days. I know we are in God’s hands, and it is His will, not ours, that should be done, but I would appreciate any support and prayers that could be offered for us.
Thank you very much for your help.
Father, hear our prayer for a safe and healthy pregnancy in your timing. Give them peace and free them from any anxiety with your Spirit’s peace. Mother Mary and St. Gerard and St. Luke, pray for them.

Would you ask your prayer warriors to offer some prayers for my health? I’m having some symptoms that could be nothing or could be quite serious.
Father, hear our prayer for a completely healthy diagnosis and the vanishing of all the symptoms. Mother Mary and St. Luke, pray for my reader. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
