Prayer

For our struggle is not with flesh and blood but with the principalities, with the powers, with the world rulers of this present darkness, with the evil spirits in the heaven

Ephesians 6:12

While defeating the Culture of Death requires action, the main weapon must be prayer. Here are some suggestions:

  • The Rosary. Saint Pio called the Rosary his weapon against evil. If you don’t know how to pray the Rosary, here is a good guide.
  • The Divine Mercy Chaplet. Again if you don’t know how here is a guide.
  • Daily prayers of the Auxilium Christianorum

Spiritual Adoption of an Abortion Mill
Father, all life is in Your care.
You have entrusted us to one another,
that we may show our brothers and sisters
the same love You have for us.
We pray, then, for the least among us,
the children in the womb.
Protect them from the violence of abortion.
We pray for those that are scheduled to die at [Planned Parenthood or Hillcrest]
Save them from death.
Give new hope to their parents,
that they may turn away from the desperate act of abortion.
Grant conversion to the abortionist and to the staff.
Show us how we are to respond to the bloodshed in our midst,
And lead us to the day when this place of death
Will be transformed into a haven of life.
Guard us with your joy and your peace,
For in You, life is victorious.
We pray in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.


Prayer from Gospel of Life
O Mary, 
bright dawn of the new world, 
Mother of the living, 
to you do we entrust the cause of life 
Look down, O Mother, 
upon the vast numbers 
of babies not allowed to be born, 
of the poor whose lives are made difficult, 
of men and women 
who are victims of brutal violence, 
of the elderly and the sick killed 
by indifference or out of misguided mercy.
Grant that all who believe in your Son
may proclaim the Gospel of life 
with honesty and love 
to the people of our time. 
Obtain for them the grace 
to accept that Gospel 
as a gift ever new, 
the joy of celebrating it with gratitude 
throughout their lives 
and the courage to bear witness to it 
resolutely, in order to build, 
together with all people of good will, 
the civilization of truth and love, 
to the praise and glory of God, 
the Creator and lover of life.


Prayer for the United States
God Our Father, Giver of life,
we entrust the United States of America
to Your loving care.
You are the rock 
on which this nation was founded.
You alone are the true source
of our cherished rights 
to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Reclaim this land for Your glory
and dwell among Your people.
Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts
of our nation’s leaders.
Open their minds
to the great worth of human life
and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Remind Your people that true happiness
is rooted in seeking and doing Your will.
Through the intercession of
Mary Immaculate, Patroness of our land,
grant us the courage to reject 
the “culture of death.”
Lead us into a new millennium of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

Bless them with a deeper relationship with Jesus.
Mary, our Mother, pray for your children and for an end to abortion

Comfort your sons and daughters grieving the abortion of their child.

Help them to forgive themselves for their abortion.

Give them a sure hope that their child is with You.
Mary, our Mother, pray for your children and for an end to abortion.
