God of All Life
You fill what is empty,
You make abundant what is scarce,
You bring to bloom what is barren.
We ask your presence and care for all those who seek to be parents. Bless them with the conception, healthy delivery and joyful rearing of children to cherish made in your image and likeness. Dwell with them and console them as they wait for the gifts given in your good time.
With Sarah and Abraham, Rachel and Jacob, Hannah and Elkanah, Zachariah and Elizabeth, we pray. Amen.
