|Suggested prayers ...|
Thank You for founders who established this country on the fact that You are the Creator of life, and that each and every one of us is equal before You.
We plead for You to lead all Americans to respect and protect the sacred right to life for all human beings at every stage, including the aged, the ill, the handicapped, the disadvantaged and the unborn from the moment of conception until natural death.
We pray that Americans will nurture and protect all human life, and we plead for an end to the plague of abortion in our nation.
We ask You to convict, correct and move in the hearts of judges and legislators to uphold the sanctity and precious gift of every human life.
We ask You, Lord, to bring deep healing to those who have chosen to end the life of a developing child. You and You alone can know the depth of the scars they carry. You alone can heal. We pray that each woman would know that You have plans for her welfare and not her destruction. We pray for the deep healing of men who have been involved in abortion. Thank You that You are a God of forgiveness, healing and redemption.
We ask, O God, for your mercy on a nation that is condoning the murder of its own children. Convict us, forgive us and transform us, O God, we pray.
Father, we pray for all who would speak on behalf of life. Give us creative, discerning, effective and pursuasive thoughts to share with those who disagree and those who have the power to make decisions that mean life or death for others.
“Without God there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Being is the first - the most basic - expression of Americanism. Thus the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus with God’s help, it will continue to be.”
President Gerald Ford – December 5, 1974
Today I was buried with Christ in baptism and arose to walk in newness of life.
