Prayer to St. Gianna for pregnancy complications

Next Prayer

Patron Saint of Mothers, Physicians, and Preborn Children, O compassionate Saint Gianna, physician and caregiver to the poor, the elderly, to children and expectant mothers, look lovingly upon my humble prayer, and intercede for me with our Heavenly Father. As a dedicated wife and mother, you imitated the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ, even to the point of giving your life to save the life of your preborn child. Ask the Holy Spirit, I pray, to fill me with courage, so that your words may become my own: “Whatever God wants.” If it is in God’s loving plan for me, pray that my intention may be granted (make your request here). Amen.
