Prayer for the Child in the Womb                                            

Lord Jesus, you are the source and lover of life. Reawaken in us respect for every human life.                                                                                                     

Help us to see in each child the marvellous work of our Creator. Open our hearts to welcome every child as a unique and wonderful gift.

Guide the work of doctors, nurse and midwives. May the life of a mother and her baby in the womb be equally cherished and respected. Help those who make our laws to uphold the uniqueness and sacredness of every human life, from the first moment of conception to natural death.

Give us wisdom and generosity to build a society that cares for all. Together with Mary, your Mother, in whose womb you took on our human Help us to choose life in every decision we take.

We ask this in the joyful hope of eternal life with you, and in the communion of the Blessed Trinity. Amen

Our lady of knock, pray for us. All the saints of Ireland, pray for us
