Prayer to Protect Life ….

Loving God, I thank you for the gift of life you gave me and continue to give me and to all of us. Merciful God, I ask your pardon and forgiveness for my own failure and the failure of all people to respect and foster all forms of life. Gracious God, I pray that with your grace, I and all people will reverence, protect, and promote all life and that we will be especially sensitive to the life of the unborn, the abused, neglected, disabled and the elderly. I pray, too, that all who make decisions about life in any form will do so with wisdom, love and courage. Living God, I praise and glorify you as Father, Source of all life, as Son, Savior of our lives and as Spirit, Sanctifier of our lives.

Amen.
