A few years ago our family hung a prayer up on our refrigerator as a reminder to pray it each night before dinner (after Grace Before Meals).
That prayer saved the life of an unborn child.
If you have never had the chance to read the story, here it is: God Hears Us: A Spiritual Adoption Miracle.
It is still making me say wow a few years later.
This is the prayer we hung on our “fridge” that allowed us to witness a miracle.

Once we experienced that first miracle, we continued to pray the Spiritual Adoption prayer almost every single night before dinner. Once 9 months go by, we start again. We choose another name and continue to pray for an unborn child. One time we decided to pray for twins – we chose a girl’s name and a boy’s name. During the 7th month of praying for those twins we received a call – a woman was in labor. She was having twins and wanted to place them with an adoptive family.
She ended up delivering a boy and a girl.
Those two little loves our now our son and daughter.
If you want to read more about that miracle – check out this article: Our Lady of Guadalupe: Her Image Still Appears.
We are currently praying for a little boy named Dave. My husband chose that name because apparently the name I picked for our last spiritual adoption, Darius Anthony, was too long (haha). The Holy Spirit works in mysterious ways. We choose the name, but it is definitely led by the Holy Spirit.
I once posted about this prayer on Facebook and others chimed in to share how they once prayed it or used to pray it with their family. I remember one woman said she would let her children pick the names and they would often pick very unusual names, like Cloud. Then, another woman replied to that comment, “I taught a Cloud!!”.
You just never know . . .
It is my hope that every Catholic in America hang this prayer on their fridge and say it every night – or day. It only takes about 20 seconds to pray. It is a beautiful act of faith.
It’s also an opportunity . . .
An opportunity to share
how your family prays,
what your family prays and
why your family prays – if anyone were to visit your home, see the prayer and ask about it.
We look at our refrigerators every day.
We also look at our phones every day. We take them with us everywhere.
It’s easy to forget things. It’s certainly easy to forget to pray. I mean, I can’t tell you how many times I started a novena and had to start it all over again because I forgot to pray it one day.
Since I know we are all busy, I had to share this wonderful product made by Lindsay, owner of Just Love Prints.
Lindsay, like myself, feels compelled to share this prayer and encourage others to pray it. In fact, Lindsay feels so strongly about this prayer that she has started a whole new platform called Formed and Favored. Lindsay has created a line within her Just Love Prints shop that she dedicates to the unborn in danger of abortion. Check out those products here: The Formed and Favored Collection
I can’t tell you how many times a day I look at my phone. I can tell you it is probably more than I should.
This phone wallpaper created by Just Love Prints is such a simple beautiful purchase and such a powerful way to show love to the unborn.
What if we all put this prayer on our phone and on our fridge?
I think most people consider themselves “pro-life”. This action of displaying this prayer on your phone and refrigerator is an act of love, a way to remind us to pray and an act of evangelization.
This is a small act, but according to Mother Teresa:
There are no great acts, only small acts done with great love.”
I believe we all want to love.
Let’s call upon our friends and family to put this prayer on their phones and fridge – and then let’s sit back and watch the miracles.
