PRAYER TO PROMOTE A CULTURE OF LIFE

PRAYER TO PROMOTE A CULTURE OF LIFE

 

God of wisdom and love thank you for the gift of our human sexuality,

for the wonderful power and opportunity as men and women

to give life to all our relationships.

 

Thank you for the gift of our fertility.

As sexual beings help us to grow in maturity,

understanding and responsibility

so that we may learn to use and not abuse the gift and power of sex .

 

Bless our Church, our world, our country and our homes

with the gift of hospitality

so that the least of all your people, the unborn,

the unwanted, the homeless and the lost

will be welcomed and not turned away

will be accepted and not rejected

will be valued and not put aside

will be given life and not condemned to death

will be loved as you love.

 

We ask this through the power of the Holy Spirit

and in the name of Jesus, Your Son, who experienced rejection,

homelessness and death for our salvation.

Amen.
