Prayer for Life

Heavenly Father,
We praise and thank you for the gift of our lives
and for the gift of your son, Christ Jesus,
who purchased, for us, Eternal Life.

Help us to bring your Kingdom of Truth and Love to this world.
Teach us how to lay down our lives for each other.
Have mercy on the children who are yet to be born.
Bless all families and give to mothers and fathers
the graces they need to lead holy lives.

Lead all those who have had an abortion to repentance
and grant them the assurance of your forgiveness.
May all those involved in this evil
turn away from their sins and return to you.

Raise up new laborers for the work that needs to be done.
Grant then the courage to respond to your call,
the gifts they need to carry out their tasks,
and the consolation of your promise of eternal glory.

Mary, Mother of Mercy,
pray for us, watch over us and guide us as
we uphold the sanctity of human life.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
