Lord, you are love itself, and you manifest your love to us by creating us, sustaining us, and saving us.
Your care reaches into every aspect of our lives, far beyond our awareness.
And like a constant heartbeat, your love is keeping us in existence at every moment.
To show your love, Lord God, you took on our humanity in your Son, Jesus Christ, who became an unborn child.
Lord, I pray for every child in the womb.
With each beat of the unborn child’s heart, inspire our own hearts to likewise beat with love for them.
And as your own Son’s heart was pierced by a lance on the cross,
So let our hearts be pierced with anguish over the ongoing slaughter of our unborn brothers and sisters by abortion.
By the power of your Son’s Resurrection, bring about the victory of life, and enable us to do our part
In proclaiming, celebrating, and serving that victory.
We pray through the same Christ our Lord.
