Prayer to the Virgin
In the Orthodox tradition, the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, is the patroness of women. She helps those who wish to become pregnant, and already carrying a new life in themselves. She is a protector and intercessor. Believers ask her about the health of the unborn child, and the welfare of the family.
Many icons of the Mother of God are known for their miraculous properties. Therefore, the prayers to the Virgin Mary are the strongest and most effective.
Prayer to the Holy Matron of Moscow
Matrona Moskovskaya was born into a poor peasant family, where she was the fourth child. Already the birth of a girl was preceded by miracles - the mother thought to give the unborn child to an orphanage, but shortly before the birth she had a dream - a bird with eyes closed and the face of a man.
The woman realized that God was stopping her from reckless action. And when a girl was born on November 10 (22), 1881 - she was blind, the dream was prophetic.
From early childhood, Matrona helped people with prayers. People in gratitude carried the products for the child, which the whole family used. At the age of 17, Matrona’s legs were lost. And after the revolution, she was homeless. The family, which prevented the faith of the saint, refused it.
For the rest of her life, Matrona was hiding, moving from place to place thanks to the believers who sheltered her and cared for her. Despite her frailty and unsettled life, Matrona constantly helped people with advice, predictions, healing.
And after death, miracles of healing take place. Matronushka helps those who are trying to conceive and give birth to a healthy child. Before prayer it is advisable to visit the relics of Matrona of Moscow and pray there.
Prayer to the Righteous Joachim and Anna
The holy righteous Joachim and Anna are considered traditional patrons and protectors of childless couples. This is due to the fact that they themselves have long been a childless couple.
When Joachim retired to the wilderness, an angel appeared to him with the news that his wife would give birth to a child. So it happened. And Mary, the future mother of Jesus Christ, was born to them.
Therefore, couples who want to conceive and give birth to a healthy child can turn to the righteous.
