Prayer for Life

Today being the 41st anniversary of the legalization of abortion in the USA, I share this prayer for Life:
Heavenly Father, You have given us the gift of freedom to love and to follow in Your ways and commands. Some parents choose to abuse this freedom by destroying the gift of life which You have given to their offspring. Please forgive those who destroy human life by aborting their unborn babies. Give these unborn children the opportunity to enjoy You for all eternity. Assist us in being one in solidarity with Your little ones by taking to heart the words of Your Son, "whatever you did for one of these least brothers of Mine, you did for Me." (Mt. 25:40) 
 Therefore, allow us today, Father, to adopt spiritually an unborn child and to offer our prayers, works, joys and sufferings for that little one, so that child will be able to be born and live for Your greater honor and glory. Today we commit ourselves never to be silent, never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn. We commit ourselves to be active in the pro-life movement, and never to stop defending life until all our brothers and sisters are protected, and our nation once again becomes a nation with liberty and justice not just for some, but for all, We pray this in Jesus' name, in union with the Holy Spirit one God forever and ever. Amen.
