Prayer for the Preborn

By David Ortega

  “Heavenly Father, we pray for those gathered in solidarity to march for life in Washington DC and across this country.
Send your Holy Spirit to guard them, guide them, and protect them from all evil.
We lift up those whose hearts ache from choosing abortion, that You will soothe and heal them with the balm of Your mercy.
We pray for president Obama, members of Congress and the Supreme Court, that they may have the courage and wisdom to establish and promote laws which protect the dignity of human life from conception until natural death; and that the good seed of the Gospel of Life may take root in our land and grow for Your greater glory and honor. In Jesus’ Name we pray.”
