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.
