Prayer for the Unborn Child

Dear Lord, Re-awaken in us respect for every unborn life, make us capable of seeing in the fruit of the maternal womb the miraculous work of your creation, open our hearts to generously welcoming every child that comes into life.  Bless all families, sanctify the union of spouses, render fruitful their love. Accompany the choices of legislative assemblies with the light of your Spirit, so that people and nations may recognize and respect the sacred nature of life, of every human life.  Guide the work of scientists and doctors, so that all progress contributes to the integral well-being of the person, and no one endures suppression or injustice.  Give creative charity to administrators and economists, so they may realize and promote sufficient conditions so that young families can serenely embrace the birth of new children.  Console the married couples who suffer because they are unable to have children and in

Your goodness provide for them.  Teach us all to care for orphaned or abandoned children, so they may experience the warmth of your Charity, the consolation of your divine Heart.
