Father, we are gathered here today to
celebrate the greatest gift conferred by Thee on all of us, the gift of
We acknowledge that Thou art of the Lord of Life; Thou alone givest and
Thou alone taketh it in Thy Own time.
We pray that Thou wilt open the eyes of those who promote abortion, may
they realize that life is precious from the moment of its conception in
the mother's womb through its natural end.
We know that Thou doth consider life so precious that Thou went so far
sending Thy Son Jesus christ to suffer and die that we may live not
only on this earth but that we may have eternal life with Thee at the
hour of our death,
Help us grasp the enormity and the sanctity of this gift and grant us
the strength to hold on to this truth until Thou calleth us to life
with Thee forever.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. Amen.
