✟ Lenten Pro-life Prayer

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 through Christ our Lord.
~ Amen.
