We begin with the sign of our faith…<br />In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit<br />Amen<br />
Opening Prayer:Prayer for the gift of a child<br />God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob; God who created the universe and sustains it every money, we praise you, we thank you and we glorify you.<br />Lord, you who gave a child to Abraham, we thank you, we praise you. Seeing the tears of Hanna, Lord you gave her a child. Elizabeth who was barren in her old age, you blessed her with a child.<br />You who are the giver of all perfect gifts, we ask you to bless us with wonderful children, who will be your chosen instruments to spread your love. The days, months, and years of our sorrow and pain for not having a child, we surrender it to you.<br />We forgive every person who has insulted us or made fun of us because we were not blessed with a child. Jesus, our Lord and Master, bless whose who have hurt us. Fill them with your Holy Spirit.<br />Lord, whatever be the obstacle to have a child, let it be taken away from us right now with the power of Your precious blood and precious name.<br /> Praise You Jesus.<br />Thank You Jesus. <br /> Amen. <br />
a reading from scripture Deuteronomy 31:8 <br />“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; He will neverleave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”<br />The word of the Lord<br />Thanks be to God<br />

But I would die for that.Just to have one chanceTo hold in my handsAll that she had.I would die for that.<br />
I've been given so much,A husband that I love.So why do I feel incomplete?With every test and checkupWe're told not to give up.He wonders if it's him.And I wonder if it's me.All I want is a family,Like everyone else I see.And I won't understand itIf it's not meant to be.<br />
Cause I would die for that.Just to have one chanceTo hold in my handsAll that they have.I would die for that.<br />
And I want to know what it's likeTo bring a dream to life.For that kind of love,What I'd give up!I would die for that.Sometimes it's hard to conceive, With all that I've got,And all I've achieved,What I want most Before my time is gone,Is to hear the words"I love you, Mom."<br />
I would die for that. Just to have once chanceTo hold in my handsWhat so many haveI would die for that.And I want to know what it's likeTo bring a dream to life.How I would loveWhat some give up.I would die ...I would die for that.<br />
We end with the sign of the cross<br />In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.<br />Amen.<br />
