Husband's Prayer During Labor

May it be Your will our God and God of our forefathers, that You have compassion on all birthing women, among Your people Israel, especially on my wife __________ (her Hebrew name) daughter of _________ (her mother's Hebrew name). Alleviate her pain and help her have an easy birth. May her child be born to a good life and peace in an auspicious time. May she and the child be spared any pain, harm, or mishap. God, Who is full of mercy, have compassion on my wife and save her from any pain, panic, or mental anguish. Cause the baby to arrive on time so that my wife will continue to be healthy and to serve You properly. God, You will not spurn a broken and humble heart. Hear our prayer and answer our plea, for You are merciful and hear everyone's prayer. May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart be pleasing before You, Eternal, my Rock and my Redeemer.
