Lord, your Word tells us that in You we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28).
As we follow the development of the child in the womb, we see this week the beginning of movement, even though Mom does not feel it.
Lord, we pray for every child in the womb. May all their movements throughout life, and ours as well, always move us closer to You, and to Your Kingdom of truth and life, of holiness and grace, of justice, love and peace.
Guide and protect our every move, and make all of us safe, whether born or unborn.
We pray though Christ our Lord. Amen.
