Roses Ministry


Yellow rose: Prayer to conceive or adopt
Lord God, my desire for a child grows stronger every day. Cradle me in your love and calm all my
anxieties. I look to you for insight to make the dream of parenthood a reality. Stir in my heart
the desire to follow your will in all my decisions. Give me courage to trust your guiding presence.
Deepen my faith in your plan for our family.
Shine your divine mercy and compassion upon me. Amen.

Pink rose: Prayer during pregnancy
Help me, Lord, to enter the mystery unfolding deep within my womb. Allow me to accept this gift
with wonder and excitement. Permit me to cherish the life I carry. I freely offer my body, mind,
and spirit as my unique gift to this child. Lord, I know you are present, taking care of me and my
child. Help me to experience your presence and know your loving care. Increase my faith and trust
in you. Amen.

Red rose: Birth or adoption prayer
My heart overflows with praise for you, God, as I think of the blessing this child is to our
family. Guide me in my role as a parent. Make me an instrument of your love. Let me give myself
unselfishly so my child might know the joy and security of being loved unconditionally. Give me
wisdom to help my child discover life’s beauty and won- ders while nurturing our family’s faith in
your abiding presence. Amen.

White rose: Baby loss grief prayer
Lord, you invite us to place our burdens and cares in your hands. Accept my sorrow as I grieve the
loss of my child. Sustain me as I am overwhelmed with grief’s agony. I believe my baby lives now
with you and that someday we will be together in heaven. Until then, please give me the grace to
see the light of eternity as I face the darkness of death. Settle my soul and help me find peace.
