Prayer

Rev. Chris Tessone, Independent Catholic Movement

Our help is in the name of the Lord, Who makes heaven and earth.

Let us pray:

Loving God,

We come to you with heavy hearts, a generation and a culture torn apart;

But in our confusion, we know what it is to love, and that we must love those who disagree with us, who muddy the water.

God of Creation,

Give us the clarity of mind to discern Your will, not in simple rules that ignore complexity, but in loving kindness that seeks to uplift and affirm all your children.

Eternal and Loving God,

Hear our prayers and bless your child, _________, who prepares to undergo an abortion. Guide the hands of her doctors, nurses, and other caregivers, that they may act with wisdom and love.

Restore her quickly to wholeness of body and mind, and be always the protector of her life and the safeguard of her care.

Through Jesus the Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.

Amen.
