It won't be long now!

My mom just called, and it seems that my little sister Jamie is in labor with their 3rd child!! Her due date wasn't until July 3rd, but I guess that's only a couple weeks away, which would make her full term! I found the following beautiful prayer on Anne's blog. Would you all please join me in praying it for Jamie?


Prayer for a Safe Delivery

Saint Elizabeth, through the great blessings you received from God at the birth of your son, Saint John, I beseech you to obtain for Jamie the grace of deeply understanding with joyful wonder the privilege of motherhood and of living each day in happy anticipation.

I ask this grace through the Precious Blood of Jesus, God’s Gift of Love to us.

Saint Anne, obtain for Jamie through your own blessed child, Mary ever Virgin, the grace that no accident may befall her and that she may deliver her child safe and sound into the world.

I ask this grace through the Precious Blood of Jesus, God’s Gift of Love to us.

Mary, my Mother, I pray you to intercede before your Divine Son, Jesus, and obtain for Jamie the help and blessings of God so that she may patiently endure with joyful expectation the pains of delivery and that her child may receive the grace of Baptism.

I ask this grace through the Precious Blood of Jesus, God’s Gift of Love to us.

Amen.


UPDATE: No baby yet. It looks like my sister's labor stopped during the night. Please continue to keep her in your prayers!

  4. Thank you all!

    Yes, Jamie, she IS a "Jamie Jo" too! I still remember getting that one email from you and thinking it was my sister. =) It had never crossed my mind that
    anyone other than my parents would use Jo for their daughters middle names. (My parents used it three times: Jessica Jo, Jennifer Jo, and Jamie Jo!) ;)

    I have not heard any news yet this morning. Last night her contractions were 3 min apart, but she was only at 4cm, so she had a ways to go.

    Please keep praying!
