Lenten Prayer for Life

Lenten Prayer for Life
'40 Days for Life' and the U.S. Bishops are asking each of us to fast and pray daily to end abortion.

Father of all mercy,
we thank you for this season
 of grace and light.
We know that sin has blinded us.
Draw us ever closer to you, 
in prayer and penance.

Since you, O God, are light itself,
give all your people 
a clearer understanding
of what is sin, and what is virtue.

Grant in particular that we may see
 as never before,
the profound dignity of every human life,
including the vulnerable unborn children.

Give us grace to defend
 our brothers and sisters in the womb
by our prayers, our words,
and our self-sacrificing actions.

We pray this through Christ our Lord.
