Prayers for the Unborn
Prayer to End Abortion
Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
and for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
yet I rejoice that You have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself NEVER to be silent,
NEVER to be passive,
NEVER to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
and never to stop defending life
until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
and our nation once again becomes a nation
with liberty and justice not just for some,
but for all,
through Christ our Lord. Amen!
Prayer to The Virgin Mary
Mother of Jesus and Mother of us all,
we turn to you today as the one who said "Yes" to Life.
"You will conceive and bear a Son,"
the angel told you.
Despite the surprise and the uncertainty about how this could be,
you said yes. "Be it done unto me according to your word."
Mary, we pray today for all mothers who are afraid to be mothers.
We pray for those who feel threatened and overwhelmed by their pregnancy.
Intercede for them,
that God may give them the grace to say yes and the courage to go on.
May they have the grace to reject the false solution of abortion.
May they say with you,
"Be it done unto me according to your word."
May they experience the help of Christian people,
and know the peace that comes from doing God's will. Amen.
