Prayer for Joyful Fidelity to our Mission
by Fr. Frank Pavone, M.E.V.
 
Lord God, We thank you for our salvation in Jesus Christ. We thank you for the call he gives us –– Not a call to sit in a corner cowering in fear over our enemies, Mystified about how to overcome the Culture of Death, Despondent because of our sins, Or worried about the perceived political strength of our opponents. Rather, it is a call to stand victorious in the light of the Resurrection And to proclaim to the Culture of Death: ““You have been conquered!You have no place here, No power to defeat the forces of truth and goodness!””
 
Yes, Lord, we stand in that light And we are filled with joy –– Not a superficial joy that rises and falls With the ebb and flow of circumstances beyond our control, But with the profound joy That only you can give And that nobody can take away.
 
In the strength of that joy, May we your people continue to proclaim your truth And share your grace Not only within the walls of our Churches, But in the halls of government, In the voting booth, In the media, And in every inch of the public square. Lord, in our work for you, may we find you.
 
In our efforts to change the world, may we ourselves be changed. In our struggle to build a Culture of Life, may we find life eternal.
 
We pray through Christ our Lord.

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.

I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
by the Resurrection of Your Son.

I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself
Never to be silent,
Never to be passive,
Never to be forgetful of the unborn.

I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes
A nation with liberty and justice
Not just for some, but for all.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen!
