Our God, we come before You in sadness and hope, for each year millions of unborn children are murdered in their mothers’ wombs. Only You can bring good out of something so terrible.
Allow these innocents to plead for their parents and this world with their faultless purity. Glorify Yourself in them, by allowing them in some special way to work for the coming of Your kingdom!
Bring to light the plight of abused children, youth, women and men. Numerous infants, children, adults and elderly are abused or neglected. Rescue the abused from dangerous situations, and provide them with healing and safe environments. Let their grievances cry out for repentance and healing of their murderers and persecutors, and plead for their own loving protection. Grant grace that their abusers repent of their cruelty and neglect.
Our Father and theirs, let it be that all persons, born and unborn, will come to be received with the welcome Christ offers to each person, in gladness, care, hope, blessing and love.
