The following prayer is Published by the Respect Life Office
Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne.
Please join us in prayer ….
Heavenly Father, Source of all life,
we know that even in our darkest moments
you are with us.
We pray that you will give us
new life and renewed courage
so people of life will continue to grow in love.
Awaken in us all
a new reverence and respect for all life,
especially for those yet to be born into the world.
Help us to encourage and support
all Mothers and Fathers,
particularly those facing difficult pregnancies.
Move the hearts of all our politicians to protect
the weakest and most defenceless entrusted
to their care, especially unborn children.
Guide and protect all those in the caring professions;
grant them your wisdom and peace
as we work together with all people of good will
to build a new civilisation of truth and love.
