Thou hast given us the gift of freedom to love
And to follow in Thy ways and commands.
Some parents choose to abuse this freedom
By destroying the gift of life which Thou hast given to their offspring.
Please forgive those who destroy human life
By aborting their unborn babies.
Give these unborn children the opportunity to enjoy Thee
For all eternity, if it according to Thy ordinance.
Assist me in being one in solidarity with Thy little ones
By taking to heart the words of Thy Son,
“Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of Mine,
you did for Me.” (Mt. 25:40)
Therefore, allow me today, Father, to adopt spiritually an unborn child
And to offer my prayers, works, joys and sufferings for that little one,
So that child will be able to be born and live for
Thy greater honour and glory.
We pray this in Jesus’ name, in union with the Holy Spirit
One God forever and ever.
