Prayer for Respect Life
God of life and love, you created us in your image
and sent your Son to bring us life.
Instil in us a respect for all life,
from conception to natural death.
Empower us to work for justice for the poor.
Nourish us that we may bring food to the hungry.
Inspire us to cherish the fragile life of the unborn.
Strengthen us to bring comfort to the chronically ill.
Teach us to treat the aging with dignity and respect.
Bring us one day into the glory of everlasting life.
We ask through Christ our Lord.
