Special Prayer Intentions on the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade
Tonight, our parish respect life committee sponsored a pro-life Benediction and rosary to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. I would like to share some of the intentions of that liturgy with you:
This evening, Lord, we pray:
for an increase of Faith, Hope, and love in all people so that all people will CHOOSE LIFE.
in reparation for the suffering You endure every time an unborn baby is killed, each time someone is euthanized, each time death overcomes life in this world.
for the intentions of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for peace in our world.
in reparation for the blood spilled from every baby wrenched from its wound through abortion.
for the mothers and fathers of these aborted little ones, that they may receive the grace to repent of this sin, turn to Jesus, and receive the gift of salvation with open hearts. Heal them of the emotional and psychological wounds that this sin has caused as You pour out the grace of conversion upon them. Let them now witness for life.
we offer up reparation for all the sins of the medical personnel that act in in the interest of death in our society and in the world. We plead for their conversion to Your truth. Let them see the truth of what they are doing, see the horror of it, rend their hearts in repentance, then work for Life and for you, Jesus, all the rest of their days.
Lord Jesus, Source of all Truth; Mary, Our Lady of all Peoples, we pray that every evil, anti-life law in our nation and world be reversed. We plead protection and strengthening of every pro-life law in existence. We petition for new and strong pro-life laws to be enacted in our nation and in our world.
Lord, Jesus, we thank You for Your incarnation in our human flesh. Your humanity at the moment of Your conception gives us, each and everyone, humanity at the moment of our conception. We thank You for those who in any way work for life. Give them continued courage, strength, peace of heart, and love. Protect them from evil and increase their witness in this nation and in this world. Strengthen their families to understand the importance of their work and to support them in their stand for life. Give them continued witness in this nation and in this world. Strengthen their families to understand the importance of their work and to support them in their stand for life.
Mother Mary, our Mother, under the titles of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mother of Perpetual Help, Queen of Peace, join us in our intercession for the end of all pro-death activities. Crush the head of evil in our nation, in our world, and in our personal lives. With every Hail Mary advance the cause of Your Divine Son, Jesus, the Incarnate Word! Protect Your children. Amen.
