Prayers for life

Novena for unborn children

(To be repeated for 9 consecutive days)
Driven by faith and charity, we offer you, Father, the Most Precious Blood of your Divine Son and the blood of children killed by abortion as a new and more dramatic massacre of innocents, with sufferings, prayers and good works of the day:

  • In repair of the countless cases of children killed in their mother's womb, all over the world, and for their eternal joy.
  • For the repentance of mothers who commit abortion, for their return to faith and living of an exemplary Christian life, and to make it possible for them to involve themselves in making reparation for the families who have rejected the gift of life.
  • Because Christians, who are the light of the world, spread everywhere a culture of life and try to educate people concerning their conscience and the value of human life.
  • For the conversion of those who were responsible or those who made use of the iniquitous law of abortion, openly violating the Lord's wishes in asking us not to kill.
  • For people directly responsible for the violations of the right to life, (such as doctors, nurses etc.) to make them aware of what they do, to repent and to be converted.
  • In reparation of the scandals spread by means of social communication against accurate information on the duties towards life, for the sole benefit of the spread of pro-abortion mentality.
  • For the Lord gives to people the ability to be able to assess human life for the benefits that the person can give to society on becoming an adult with his/her ordinary and extraordinary talents given by God.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Gloria

 

Pope Benedict XVI's Prayer for Life

 

Lord Jesus,
You who faithfully visit and fulfil with your Presence
the Church and the history of men;
You who in the miraculous Sacrament of your Body and Blood
render us participants in divine Life
and allow us a foretaste of the joy of eternal Life;
We adore and bless you.

Prostrated before You, source and lover of Life,
truly present and alive among us, we beg you.

Reawaken in us respect for every unborn life,
make us capable of seeing in the fruit of the maternal womb
the miraculous work of the Creator, open our hearts to generously welcoming every child that comes into life.

Bless all families, sanctify the union of spouses,
render fruitful their love.

Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies
with the light of your Spirit,
so that peoples and nations may recognise and respect
the sacred nature of life, of ever human life.

Guide the work of scientists and doctors,
so that all progress contributes to the integral well-being of the person,
and no-one endures suppression or injustice.

Gift creative charity to administrators and economists,
so they may realise and promote sufficient conditions
so that young families can serenely embrace
the birth of new children

Console the married couples who suffer
because they are unable to have children
and in Your goodness provide for them.

Teach us all to care for orphaned or abandoned children,
so they may experience the warmth of your Charity,
the consolation of your divine Heart.

Together with Mary, Your Mother, the great believer,
in whose womb you took on our human nature,
we wait to receive from You, our Only True Good and Saviour,
the strength to love and serve life,
in anticipation of living forever in You,
in communion with the Blessed Trinity.
