On this day when we remember, with great sorrow and dismay, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion "constitutional" in this country, I offer you and ask you to join me in these prayers for life and pro-life efforts. Let us pray for all those who are still in need of healing from this sin that wounds so many so deeply.
Please also keep in your prayers those who are headed to Washington, D.C. on Monday for the annual March for Life.
May God forgive us as a nation for the sins committed against life and may the hearts of many be opened and converted so that we become a nation and a people for life rather than against it.
Welcome into Your loving care the souls of all those children who are rejected by their mothers.
Look with compassion upon those mothers who are driven by distress and delusion to seek the lives of their own offspring.
Have mercy upon those who turn their training in the healing arts to the purposes of death.
Inspire Christians everywhere to seek out and apply Christian solutions to social problems.
Bless our efforts to educate and serve. Help us to conduct them in the spirit of humility and love that will win minds and hearts to accept the truth, to minister to those in need, and to forego the resort to violence.
