Let us pray…

Dear Lord of Life,

You took on human flesh when you were conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary. We know that we were each knit together in our mother’s womb and that Your eyes saw our unformed substance and our days were formed for us before our conception. Help all people, especially the barren and those experiencing crisis pregnancies, to comprehend the value of life yet unborn, yet undeveloped, and yet unnamed. Help us to model Your selflessness as You put our lives first on Your way to the cross, though You prayed that the cup of suffering be taken from You. Thank you for heeding  the Father’s will and for having the strength to do so on our behalf. Grant us strength in the midst of our suffering to make choices that will honor the sanctity of all human life and will protect our tiniest of neighbors; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
