St. Gianna Intercessory Prayer

Prayer for the Intercession of Saint Gianna Molla

Patron Saint of Mothers, Physicians,

and Preborn Children

O compassionate Saint Gianna,

physician and caregiver to the poor, the elderly,

to children and expectant mothers,

look lovingly upon my humble prayer,

and intercede for me with our Heavenly Father.

As a dedicated wife and mother,

you imitated the love of our Savior, Jesus Christ,

even to the point of giving your life to save

the life of your preborn child.

Ask the Holy Spirit, I pray, to fill me with courage,

so that your words may become my own:

“Whatever God wants.”

If it is in God’s loving plan for me,

pray that my intention may be granted

(make your request here).

I make this prayer for the healing

and strengthening of my heart, soul,

mind and body, with complete trust

in Christ our Lord. Amen.
