You can't ask for better news on Mother's Day. The due date is our wedding anniversary.
O Lord Jesus Christ our God, hear the prayers of Karl and Carrie for the child to be born of them.
Let their love for one another grow with the life of this child.
Give this child life and health according to Your will.
In due time bring it to a safe birth through the prayers of your own mother, the Theotokos.
For to You to we ascribe glory, together with Your Father and Your all holy and life-creating Spirit.
Now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
