Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

Heavenly Father, Creator of all Life,

We thank you for the gift of Life

that you have given to each of us.

You have made us Your children,

and filled us with Your Holy Spirit.


We turn to You now, Our Father,

to ask for Your protection for

our unborn brothers and sisters.

We pray that mothers and fathers

will place the Life of their unborn children

above their own needs and wants.

We pray that family and community members

will offer their support for unborn children.

We pray that the well-being of both mother and child

will be the focus of all health care workers.

And we pray that government leaders

will seek ways to uphold the dignity of human life.


We place all these prayers before you

through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Amen.
