Prayer to Stop Abortions at Planned Parenthood

Father, all life is in Your care. You have entrusted us to one another, that we may show our brothers and sisters the same love You have for us.
     We pray, then, for the least among us, the children in the womb. Protect them from the violence of abortion.
     We pray for those that are scheduled to die. Save them from death.
     Give new hope to their parents that they may turn away from the desperate act of abortion.
     Grant conversion to the abortionist and to the staff.
     Show us how we are to respond to the bloodshed in our midst, and lead us to the day when this place of death will be transformed into a haven for life.
     Guard us with your joy and peace for in You, life is victorious.
     We pray in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.     Amen.


LITANY OF THE UNBORN CHRIST CHILD

Our Father, Author of Life,
Thank You for the gift of life.

Word of God, through Whom all things were made,
Thank You for the gift of life.

Holy Spirit, hovering over the waters of Creation,
Thank You for the gift of life.

(After each line, pray ' BLESS THE UNBORN AND THEIR PARENTS').
Jesus, Your coming was announced by an angel,
Jesus, conceived in love by God's Spirit and the Virgin Mary,*
Jesus, beloved son of a humble carpenter,*
Jesus, source of immeasurable joy for Mary and Joseph,*
Jesus, the aging Elizabeth rejoiced in Your presence,*
Jesus, You filled the unborn Baptist with gladness,*
Jesus, Mary's soul mirrors this gift of Divinity,*
Jesus, because of You all generations call Mary blessed,*
Jesus, one month in the womb and Your tiny heart beat for love,*
Jesus, another month passed and Your mouth and hands were wonderfully formed,*
Jesus, that mouth would tell the glory of God,*
Jesus, those hands were fashioned to be pierced for love,*
Jesus, before birth You rested near Your mother's faithful heart,*
Jesus, grateful to those who assisted Your mother during pregnancy,*
Jesus, teaching us; whatever we do to the least of Your brothers and sisters, we do to You,*
Jesus, Your birth was a joyful revelation to humanity,*
Jesus, days after that nativity, a fearful king planned to kill You,*
Jesus, countless infants were slaughtered in Your place,*

Lord, thank You for first coming among us as the Unborn Christ Child. Today, untold numbers of our tiny sisters and brothers have been abandoned by the world's leaders, by the traditional defenders of justice, by the healing professions and even by their own parents. But You are their Savior - You have not forgotten them. Savior, rescue and protect these little ones from the neglect and violence of an uncaring world.

Merciful Lord, Your tiny infant heart, which was later emptied on the cross, offers this world it's only hope. Forgive us our sins against the unborn, against their parents and against all Your children. Lord, have mercy on us. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.

Prince of Peace, through Your healing Spirit, help us to lovingly accept every conceived child created in Your image and likeness, as a messenger of peace and goodwill towards all people. Amen.

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen!

Prayer to Our Lady Of Guadalupe

Mary, Our Lady Of Guadalupe and
patroness of the Americas,
you brought an end to the human
sacrifices on the Aztec altars
in the 16th century by means of your
image on the cloak of St. Juan Diego.
So now we ask you to come to our aid
and bring an end to the sacrificing of
our preborn children on the altar of
sexual excess and convenience. Bring us
leaders who will respect life from the
first moment of conception until natural
death. Make them strong, honest, and
moral men and women. And, through
their efforts save our nation from moral
annihilation and make us a culture of
life! Holy Virgin Of Guadalupe, Queen
of Peace, save the nations and peoples
of this continent! Amen.
