PRAYER FOR THE UNBORN
For ending Abortion
by Fr. Michael J. Truongluan, C.Ss.R.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you” (Jeremiah 1:5).
My Lord, my God, Jesus Christ—the Unborn, * we adore you with all our heart. * We beseech You, Lord, * to save the life of the unborn babies in their mother’s wombs. * Save them from the atrocity of abortion.
We pray for the expecting mothers: * Give them Your light of love and Your heart of trust, * so they will to keep their baby until they are born. We pray for their fathers: * Give them the Fear of the Lord, * so they will to take the responsibility to take care of the mother and the child. * Give them the courage to fight for the life of their baby.
We pray for the doctors: * Give them Your conscience, Lord, * so they will to see the unborn baby with the kindness of Your Most Sacred Heart, * and to firmly reject and bravely protest against abortion.
We offer to you the leaders of our own country *—all politicians, * business owners, * lawyers, * judges, * State representatives, * Governors, * Senators and the President. * Give them Your faith and confidence, * so they will to worship You * and establish laws defending the life of the unborn.
We offer you all religious teachers, * deacons, * priests and bishops. * Give them the spirit of daily repentance, * so they will to lead a life of holiness. * Give them the courage of Your Sacred Heart to lay down their life to teach, * preach and give witness to You, * the Unborn Lord Jesus, * and Your Gospel of life.
Today, * I offer my life and all my sacrifices * to adopt one unborn child * who is in danger of being slaughtered by abortion. * Through the intercession of St. Gerard, * the Patron of the unborn children and expecting mothers, * hear our prayers. * Lord Jesus, * You were once an Unborn child in Your Mother’s womb. * Have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Saint Gerard, Patron of the unborn,
