Prayer for Mothers to Choose Life

Jesus, Beloved Savior, You are the Light of the World. Those who follow You do not walk in darkness. Please give all pregnant women your Light and your Grace that they might see their way through this difficult decision and be guided my your Light alone.

Dear Savior, guide them as they weigh the alternatives and help them to keep the needs and rights of others clearly in view.

Come Holy Spirit and help them with this difficult decision. Give them wisdom and understanding, patience and courage that they might know and abide by the Will of their Heavenly Father. That their decision in this matter leads them further along the path toward Him rather than away from Him.

Heavenly Father, who has given us the great gift of life, bless and guide all pregnant women that they might respect and cherish the gift of life growing within them. Help each mother to accept her child as an irreplaceable gift from You. Bless all babies yet unborn. Watch over them as they grow and develop in the embrace of their mothers’ wombs. Form them and shape them that they might be born healthy. Grant that they might be welcomed at birth with tender love and deep joy.

O most loving Triune God I ask you to bless those babies who are unwanted and will never be born. Baptize them in your Blessed Triune Name and with the tears of Our Lady of Sorrows. Welcome them into your loving embrace that they might find their home in You. Amen
