Today I lift up a prayer for the unborn, for those babies who are still growing in their mother’s womb. Help them to grow healthy and strong, guide their muscles, organs and all of them into the perfect person you have created them to be. Give their mothers the strength she needs during her pregnancy, and provide her with the support she needs during that demanding time.
And Lord, I ask that you warm the hearts and minds of those parents who are contemplating abortion. Show them that the child inside of them is a life, a child, not just tissue. Give them the support they need to decide to carry their child to term, place in their lives people who will help and love them. Help them to know that they are not alone on this journey and that whether they chose to give their child for adoption or raise it themselves they are giving life to a new person! A person that You created and called by name even before they were conceived.
I pray for the souls of those babies who were intentionally killed before they had a chance to grow and be born. Hold them in your loving arms forever Lord. I am thankful that they are now safe with You. And heal those parents who made that decision, help them to find peace.
