A Pro Life Prayer For Our President And Public Officials

Lord God, Author of Life
and Source of Eternal Life,

Move the hearts of all our public officials
and especially our President,
to fulfill their responsibilities worthily
and well to all those entrusted to their care.

Help them in their special leadership roles,
to extend the mantle of protection
to the most vulnerable,
 especially the defenseless unborn,
whose lives are threatened with extermination
by an indifferent society.

Guide all public officials by your wisdom
and grace to cease supporting any law
that fails to protect the fundamental good
that is human life itself,
which is a gift from God and parents.

You are the Protector and Defender
of the lives of the innocent unborn.
Change the hearts of those who compromise
the call to protect and defend life.
Bring our nation to the values
that have made us a great nation,
a society that upholds the values of life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness for all.

Mary, the Mother of the living,
help us to bear witness to the Gospel of Life
with our lives and our laws,
 through Christ, Our Lord.
