Later this week, the British House of Commons will vote on an “assisted dying” bill. At the same time, the California Assembly has just approved such a bill, but it still needs to be approved by the Senate.
Please pray for wisdom and the guidance of the Holy Spirit for British MPs this week, and for California’s Senators and Governor as they in turn consider this legislation.
God, our Father,
your light of truth
guides us to the way of Christ.
May all who follow him
reject what is contrary to the gospel.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. AMEN
Our Father, Who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy Will be done,
on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now, and at the hour of our death.
