A Short Prayer for Life

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritui Sancti.  Amen

O Heavenly Father, from whom springs forth all life.  I humbly pray to you to have mercy on our nation though it allows the killing of thousands of innocent lives in the womb.   I ask you to soften the hearts of those who so recklessly promote the evil policy of abortion, and empower them to seek to protect the innocent unborn in a truly just society, and to comfort those in crisis pregnancies and be their help to choose life.  Amen

O Lord Jesus Christ, our Divine Redeemer and Savior, from your wounded heart flowed blood and water, which represented the life you gave us by your sacrifice on the cross.  Pour out your tender mercy upon those who promote and defend abortion, and be their guide to show them the truth of their actions, that they may promote life in their lives.  Amen.

O Holy Spirit, the Paraclete, advocate and guide, source of all piety and conviction, infuse within the hearts of men the grace to defend life at all stages.  You spoke through the prophets, now I ask you to speak through the pro-life activists and they fight to end the scourge of abortion.  May only truth ever cross their lips.  Amen.

1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, 1 Glory Be
