A Prayer for Life
Almighty God, our Father, you who have given us life and intended us to have it forever, grant us your blessings.
Enlighten our minds to an awareness and to a renewed conviction that all human life is sacred
because it is created in your image and likeness.
Help us to teach by word and the example of our lives that life occupies the first place,
that human life is precious because it is the gift of God whose love is infinite.
Give us the strength to defend human life against every influence or action that threatens or weakens it,
as well as the strength to make every life more human in all its aspects.
Give us the grace when the sacredness of life
before birth is attacked, to stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.
Almighty Father, give us courage to proclaim the supreme dignity of all human life and to demand that society itself give its protection.
We ask this in your name, through the redemptive act of your Son and in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
