Precious Jesus, my Savior, Your word declares that when a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered her baby, she no longer remembers her anguish. Thank You for giving me the gift of a child so many years ago. Being a mother is, aside from my love for You, the greatest joy I have ever known. Now that my child is ready to have children of her own, please bless her family with happiness, health, and prosperity. Show her how to teach her children how to love and cling to You. Amen.
