Respect Life Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you

for the precious gift of life.

 

Help us to cherish and protect

this gift, even in the midst of fear,

pain, and suffering.

 

Give us love for all people,

especially the most vulnerable,

and help us to bear witness to the

truth that every life is worth living.

 

Grant us the humility to accept

help when we are in need,

and teach us to be merciful to all.

 

Through our words and actions,

may others encounter the

outstretched hands

 of Your mercy.

 

We ask this through

Christ, our Lord.

Amen.
