A prayer for unity
on abortion issue

In an effort to bring unity on the
divisive issue of abortion, I submit
the following prayer:
Prayer for the Reduction of
Abortions
Dear God, please grant us the
grace to value human life in all its
manifold potentials.
Help pregnant mothers who are
facing an uncertain future choose
life.
Help us encourage the birth of
those children by expanding our
nation’s health care programs to
provide adequately for these women,
even the poorest.
Help us provide educational opportunities,
including dormitories
for the mothers-to-be, with counseling
services and training so they
may acquire the skills that will enable
them to earn the where-withall
for raising their children.
In all justice may we accomplish
this.
May our political representatives
and employers realize they
owe those who work full time a living
wage so they can buy food, pay
rent, clothe themselves, afford daycare,
and the cost of transportation
to and from work.
May our nation and its policies
be authentically pro-life without
hypocrisy.
Dear God, inspired by the Holy
Spirit, we ask you this in the name
of our brother and Lord Jesus
Christ. Amen.
