Pro- Life Prayer
Father in heaven, We thank You for the precious gift of human life to our first parents, Adam and Eve, and to every human being down the centuries till today.
In your Divine Providence, You have made us your collaborators in the transmission of this gift and in preserving it from the moment it is conceived till it is transformed into life eternal.
We beg pardon for those who suffocate human life in unborn babes, who eliminate it violently with enmity and hate, or who suppress it prematurely in the elderly and the terminally ill.
Grant us so to cherish human life that we shall always respect and defend it, especially within the sacred shrine of the family where it is born and nurtured. We promise to use the gift of life witht gratitude and care at all times and in every place.
We make this prayer to you, our loving Father, through the intercession of mary,Mother of Life, in Holy Spirit, Lord and Giver of Life, and in the name ofiesus Christ, Your Son, who came that we may have life in abundand Amen. Cardinal Ivan Dias
