Prayer in Preparation

The anniversary of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion is coming up on January 22nd. In spiritual preparation, Priests for Life has invited YOU to participate in a 9 day novena starting tomorrow, January 14th, ending on January 22. Here is the webpage where you can let them know you're participating, and can order prayer cards with the prayer on it. Below is the prayer. Let us join together and fight harder everyday for the right to life of ALL people. 

Prayer of Reparation

God and Father of Life,
You have created every human person,
And have opened the way for each to have eternal life. 

We live in the shadow of death.
Tens of millions of your children have been killed
because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion. 

Father, have mercy on us.
Heal our land
And accept our offering of prayer and penance.
In your love for us,
Turn back the scourge of abortion.

May each of us exult in hearts full of hope
And hands full of mercy
And work together to build a culture of life. 

We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
