Lord God, our Eternal Father,
we come to Thy Throne
full of awe and reverence at Thy saving power.
Through our Saviour Jesus
we beg Thee to help us stop
the widespread slaughter of unborn babies in our land.
May our love for our innocent brothers and sisters
closely resemble the love that exists in the Holy Family.
Help us provide all human life
with protection under our civil laws.
We know that through the intercession
of our Mother Mary,
chosen Spouse of the Holy Spirit,
our request will
May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen. continue reading
