That is why it is fundamental to turn to God at the most crucial moment of a woman’s life because faith in the Father will achieve divine protection of her body, soul, and spirit, as well as giving her the necessary strength to continue her pregnancy with the best disposition and desire to grow.

Your protection is the only one I desire, Lord; it is Your pure soul which fills me with bliss. I beseech you today and always protect my body and my spirit from all evil that may be waiting for him, for the sins are in the order of the day, and we men are susceptible.

Touch my uterus with your blessed hands and let all the mercy that your divine soul has fallen on it so that nothing happens to my baby during the whole course of pregnancy or at the moment of delivery.
